Top Prospects Of The American Athletic Conference

Martin Ifedi, DE, Memphis


6-3, 260 pounds

2012 season: 46 tackles, 7.5 sacks, 11 TFL, 2 forced fumbles

Ifedi looks to help Memphis continue its defensive resurgence; it jumped from 117th in total defense in 2011 to 50th in 2012. Ifedi uses a quick first step and solid pass rush moves to get past opposing offensive tackles. He also is stout in the run game with the power to make some plays. He will need to add some size going forward but should see success in Memphis' first year in a new league.
