Draft Profile: Bio
Tunmise Adeleye from Tompkins High School was rated a 4-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 4-star grade by 247 Sports. After high school, Adeleye joined Texas A&M after being heavily recruited.

In 2022 as a freshman Adeleye saw action in just 2 games and played a total of 64 snaps for the Aggies. He recorded just 7 tackles, no assists, while adding 6 stops. As a pass rusher, he added 4 total pressures, which included one QB hurry, 3 QB hits, and no sacks on the season.

After season's end Adeleye transferred to Michigan State where as a sophomore for the Spartans in 2023 Adeleye played 6 games and took part in 158 snaps for the Spartans. He recorded just 5 tackles, one assist, while adding 5 stops. As a pass rusher, he chalked up 7 total pressures, and 5 QB hurries, one QB hit, and one sack during the year.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Adeleye has decent enough flexibility to bend the edge, and Adeleye shows a good closing burst.
  • He’s a high-effort pass rusher who shows good initial quickness and the ability to beat blockers to the inside.
  • His handwork is excellent. He is tough against the run, playing with a firm base when setting the edge and showing the upper-body strength to stack and shed blockers.
  • He explodes off the line with a quick first step, with agile feet to counter inside and closing burst to finish plays.
  • He’s very good with his hands, a technician with the violence, quickness, and the long arms to ward off blockers. He has a great motor and enough creativity to make plays late in the down as a pass rusher.
  • Adeleye has a wide base and a low center of gravity to hold his ground, as well as the upper-body strength to shed blockers.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • He’s often slow to react and locate the ball against the run.
  • Plays tall and gets upright off the snap. Wins with upper-body strength and needs to focus on leverage.
  • Because Adeleye doesn’t show much variety in his pass-rush moves, he may have to come offthe field on third downs.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
