56. Oni Omoile
Another UDFA offensive lineman, Oni Omoile comes with plenty of experience in college. Starting 21 games for Iowa State as an offensive tackle, Omoile was a constant fixture for the Cyclones offensive line during his career in the Big 12. Leading the Raiders to bring him into the fold as another potential practice squad project for coach Mike Tice.
Omoile has two claims to fame. One being that he is a Nigerian prince with royal bloodlines going back to the African country. The other claim to fame being an impressive 33-inch vertical jump at Iowa State’s Pro Day to showcase his athleticism.
Expect Omoile to be a practice squad player during his first season with the Raiders as a player who can work behind veteran left tackle Donald Penn and learn the ropes before coming back for a second offseason.
