Princely Umanmielen, an edge rusher from Manor, Texas, played his high school football at Manor High School. During his high school career, he amassed 135 tackles, 48 tackles for loss, and 15.5 sacks, leading his team to the Texas University Interscholastic League (UIL) Class 5A, Division 1 state championship quarterfinals in 2019. As a four-star recruit, he chose to play for the Florida Gators over other programs like Texas, Baylor, and Auburn.

At Florida, Umanmielen steadily improved, with his most productive season in 2023. That year, he started all 12 games, recording career-highs in tackles for loss (11.5), sacks (7.0), and quarterback hurries (17), and matching his career-high in tackles (39). He earned several accolades, including Coaches All-SEC Second Team, AP All-SEC Second Team, and USA Today Sports Network All-SEC Team honors. He also excelled academically, making the SEC Fall Academic Honor Roll three times from 2021 to 2023.

Over his collegiate career, Umanmielen has accumulated impressive stats: 91 total tackles, 14.5 sacks, 27.5 tackles for loss, and three forced fumbles. In 2022, he played in all 13 games, starting 11, and recorded 9.5 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles. His consistent performance and leadership on the field led him to transfer to Ole Miss for his final season, where he looks to further develop his skills ahead of the 2025 NFL Draft.

  • High football IQ, demonstrates good reactionary athleticism and situational awareness
  • He has Excellent length and wingspan, which he uses to disrupt plays and maintain leverage.
  • Versatile alignment can rush from both the stand-up OLB position and three-point stance
  • Consistently high motor, fights through contact to apply pressure and pursue the quarterback
  • His spin move is already NFL-caliber, and he displays a very good motor.

Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Needs to improve converting speed to power in his pass rush.
  • Occasionally loses pad level on the initial step, affecting his burst and leverage.
  • Can be predictable in his pass rush moves, primarily favoring the outside arc.
  • Room to add more mass to his frame to enhance play strength at the next level.
  • Struggles with setting the edge consistently against the run.
Scouting Report: Summary

Princely Umanmielen showcases a solid blend of explosiveness and flexibility, ideal for an edge rusher. His quick first step and ability to dip and bend around the corner put consistent pressure on quarterbacks. Umanmielen's array of pass-rush moves, including a spin move and bull rush, make him a versatile threat off the edge.

Despite his strengths, Umanmielen has areas that need polish. He must enhance his ability to convert speed to power in his rush and consistently set the edge against the run. His pad level needs improvement, as he sometimes pops up too quickly out of his stance, compromising his leverage.

Umanmielen's athletic traits and relentless motor give him a high ceiling at the next level. With the right coaching to address his weaknesses, he has the potential to develop into a reliable starter and impactful pass rusher.

*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.
