Abiamiri was one of the truly elite recruits coming out of high school 2003. He struggled to live up to the expectations as a freshman and sophomore though, totaling just 37 tackles, 10 for loss, and three sacks in his first two seasons combined. As a junior he beat those two season totals, as he finally began to show he deserved the hype. Abiamiri had 48 tackles, 15 for loss, and eight sacks on the year. He proved that his junior seas was not a fluke, as he finished his senior year with 42 tackles, 14.5 for loss, and 10 sacks on the year.
Physically, Abiamiri has it all. He is a great athlete, showing great agility, quickness, and speed on the football field. He has a very lean frame, and is strong for a player his size. He brings a lot of talent and potential as a playmaker off the edge. Abiamiri gets a great jump off the line, and combined with his ability to get upfield and change direction, makes him a real threat on every snap as a pass rusher. While he is an end, he may possess the athleticism and skill to play in space and adjust to a 3-4 OLB spot at the next level.
If he wants to remain at end, Abiamiri will have to bulk up. Even though he is in the 270 range, he still has a lean frame. The biggest issue that he will need to deal with is his consistency. He only has one year where he made the plays he is expected to make, and he can disappear at times during games.
Everyone is looking for the next standout edge rusher, and Abiamiri has all the talent to become one. With his success and pass rush potential, Abiamiri could land in the second round come draft day.
