NFL coaches and scouts certainly judge a college offensive lineman’s pro prospects by their physical attributes in part, but intelligence and character are often overlooked in the scouting process by those outside the league. Omameh presents plenty of both in his portfolio, as is evidenced by his 4.0 high school grade-point average and Academic All-Big Ten status, as well as the athleticism and power to be a starter at the next level.
Michigan plucked Omameh (pronounced O-MAH-may) from the backyards of their hated rival, Ohio State; he was an all-state pick out of Columbus as a senior, though only a two or three-star prospect depending on the recruiting list. After redshirting the 2008 season, Omameh got into four games as a reserve tackle (left or right) before starting the team’s final three contests at right guard. There he would stay for the next 26 games, leading the Wolverines’ deadly running attack that ranked 13th in the country in both 2010 and 2011.
Now starting his third year in the league he is coming off one of his best years. Patrick started all 16 games in 2014 after being signed by Tampa Bay on October 11th 2013 from San Francisco’s practice squad. He is looking to continue the momentum into the upcoming season. Not only is Patrick a force on the field he is a force in his community doing countless things for his community such as delivering 700 thanksgiving dinners to families in need.
The Bears claimed Omameh off waivers from Tampa Bay after final cuts last year and he went on to start nine games.
Jaguars signed OG Patrick Omameh, formerly of the Bears.
