Former Michigan edge defender David Ojabo was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens with the No. 45 pick Friday night in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
Ojabo, born in Nigeria and raised in Scotland, has only been playing football for five years. After coming to America to play basketball and soccer, he took his talents to the gridiron. After a redshirt season in 2019 and a covid shortened season in 2020, Ojabo burst on the scene in 2021. Unfortunately, he tore his Achilles during his pro day, which caused a slide in his draft stock.
He finished his career with the Wolverines posting a stat line of 36 total tackles and 11 sacks.
Ojabo will need a redshirt year to rehab from the Achilles tear, but he’s a high upside prospect if he can get back to the pre-injury form. He’ll provide an immediate boost to the Raven defense when he returns.
He possesses length, athleticism, and speed off the edge, where he could be an instant gamechanger.
The 6-foot-5, 250-pound defensive end played his high school ball in Blairstown, New Jersey, and was rated as a 4-star prospect in the 2019 class.
