Who is Kiran Amegadjie?

"The real work is starting now. I get to stay home. I get to do it with the team that I love ever since I was six years old. I'm really excited," Amegadjie said after he was drafted.

Amegadjie is an Illinois native, as he grew up in Hinsdale and attended Hinsdale Central High School. He's also an avid Bears fan --- a fandom he displayed on social media as far as three years back.

Amegadjie is a 6-foot-5 tackle weighing 323 pounds. He also has a strong reach, measuring 36 1/8-inch arms (92 percentile) at the NFL Scouting Combine.

He played three years at Yale. He played right guard his freshman year before moving to left tackle his sophomore season. That season, he played 10 games as the team's starter on the left side. He played just four games his junior season due to injury.
