Greg Powers Signing Day Evaluation: Ornelas has a good frame at 6-3+, he'll simply need to add good muscle weight in the weight room and continue to fill out and keep his agility. He has good, not great quickness, but makes good reads and arrives a step ahead of a player that might be a step faster. As he gets stronger, he should be more confident in keeping his head up and wrapping up ball carriers.
