    Villanova lineman Ijalana prominent on NFL radar
    By Keith Pompey

    Inquirer Staff Writer

    Just the thought of being in a select fraternity brought a smile to Ben Ijalana's face.

    Earlier this month, the Villanova left tackle rattled off the names of three former Rancocas Valley High products who played in the NFL.

    "Alonzo Spellman, Franco Harris, and Irving Fryar," said Ijalana, a 2007 Rancocas Valley graduate. "Those are all greats."

    If everything goes as planned, the 6-foot-4, 320-pound senior's name may be added to that list.

    Ijalana is listed by NFLDraftScout.com as the second-best senior prospect at guard for the 2011 NFL draft, behind Florida State's Rodney Hudson.

    NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock said most NFL teams give the Wildcat a third-round grade.

    "He's barely 6-foot-4, but he's got long arms," said Mayock, who think Ijalana is suited to play left tackle in the NFL. "He's got real good feet. And in a pass-first league, he's the kind of tackle teams are looking for."

    This guy looks like a Hudson Houck type of lineman. It wouldn't surprise me if the Cowboys show a lot of interest in this guy next spring

    Okay, a Cowboys type of lineman. He seems to fit their profile in terms of size and ability to play multiple positions.
