Cedric Ogbuehi // (listen) (born April 25, 1992) is an American football offensive tackle for the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Texas A&M, and was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He has played in the NFL for the Bengals, Jacksonville Jaguars, Seattle Seahawks, Baltimore Ravens, and New York Jets.
Ogbuehi attended Allen High School in Allen, Texas, where he was a two-time all-state selection for the football team. In his junior year, Ogbuehi was the best blocker for an offense that averaged 36.1 points and 225 rushing yards per game, finishing the season 15–1 with a UIL state championship. As a senior, Ogbuehi helped lead the way for an Allen offense that averaged over 466 yards per game, allowing just one sack. He was an Associated Press second-team all-state pick and unanimous first-team all-district honoree. He played in the 2010 U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
Regarded as a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, Ogbuehi was ranked as the No. 13 offensive tackle recruit in his class. He chose Texas A&M over offers from Nebraska, Kansas, Texas Tech, and Oklahoma State.
Ogbuehi was redshirted in 2010. As a freshman in 2011, he started six of 10 games at guard. As a sophomore in 2012, he started all 13 games at guard. As a junior in 2013, he was moved to the offensive tackle position.
As a senior in 2014, he received first-team All-America honors from the Walter Camp Football Foundation.
As early as May 2014, Ogbuehi was projected as a high first-round selection in the 2015 NFL Draft by various mock drafts. After the NFL Combine, most analysts had projected Ogbuehi to be a first or second-round selection. Although he was invited and attended the combine, he was unable to participate in the workouts due to his ACL injury. He was ranked the seventh-best offensive tackle out of the 88 available by NFLDraftScout.com.
