A rookie sixth-round pick of the Bengals, Adeniji has been touted by coaches and scouts for his athleticism, intelligence and dependability ... Started all 48 possible games over his four seasons (2016-20) at Kansas; switched between RT and LT early in his career, before settling at LT for his final two seasons ... Played G at the Senior Bowl (North team; coached by Detroit Lions' staff), and could see time at G in the NFL as well ... Considered among the most athletic linemen in the draft, his vertical leap (34 inches) and broad jump (115 inches) each tied for third among all OL at the combine ... Also an accomplished student at KU, and was a regular on the Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll ... Gained notoriety for his unique recruiting backstory, in which his commitment to the Air Force Academy was quashed the summer before his freshman year due to a severe cashew allergy.
