DraftSeason: Being invited to the combine was a big moment for you, what are you most excited about for your time in Indianapolis?
Jermaine Eluemunor: It was an honor getting a combine invite, it took a lot for me to get to where I’m at right now and I couldn’t of done that with my faith and my family believing in me every step of the way. When I go to Indy it will be a dream come true I’ve watched the combine on tv since I started playing football, my first combine was with Jake long, Chris long, and Matt Ryan that was nearly 8 years ago so when I got there myself it will be crazy I can’t wait to be in Lucas Oil Stadium and just see all the event posters and the atmosphere I teared up when I got the combine invite because it was a dream come true. When I go there I will give it everything I have and I want to show the 32 teams that I am one of the top lineman in this class because in my mind I’m the best but saying it is one thing backing it up is another and that’s what I hope to prove to the scouts that’s what I’m most excited about, showing the NFL teams that what I have believed about myself is true.
DraftSeason: After getting a late start in football some might see you as a project type of player, do you see yourself as a guy who could contribute as a rookie?
Jermaine Eluemunor: I think I can contribute as a rookie my mindset is that I still have a lot to learn but i am a quick learner, yeah I’ve been playing football for 5 years now and this will be my 6th but I want this I want to be great I want to be the best at my position. I want to be a dominant force in the NFL and I will work as hard as I have to in order to accomplish that. My senior year I was blessed with an amazing OL coach who taught me everything I know and I made huge strides in 1 year because of his coaching. Once I get in an NFL camp around NFL coaching and learn the play book I feel like I will be able to contribute and help my team because that is what I want to do I don’t want to be a project I want to be a contributor.

DraftSeason: What part of your game helps set you apart from the other top offensive lineman in the draft class?
Jermaine Eluemunor: I think my strength and power is what sets me apart there are a lot of great lineman in this class but I feel like I’m one of the top lineman in this class and with the combine coming up I have the perfect opportunity to prove that, but also I am very coachable I want to learn I ask a lot of questions because I want to gain as much knowledge as I can. But also my love for the game and my mentality I want to dominate anyone they put in front of me and I will bring that to the team that drafts me.
DraftSeason: Best defensive lineman you have had the chance to face durning your career?
Jermaine Eluemunor: Myles Garret, Daeshon Hall my 2 DE’s from my school they are tall and athletic freaks and will dominate in the NFL for years to come. Tim Williams has a very quick get off and Ryan Anderson is powerful but no one is like Myles and Daeshon.
