Projected first-round draft choose David Ojabo suffered a torn Achilles throughout his Michigan professional day exercise, based on ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Ojabo, 21, is taken into account one of many high pass-rushing prospects within the draft class after breaking out within the 2021 season for the Michigan Wolverines with 11 sacks and 12 tackles for loss. Ojabo was born in Nigeria and moved to Scotland when he was younger. It wasn’t till he moved to New Jersey at age 17 that he began enjoying soccer and shortly took to the game.
In the newest mock draft from ESPN’s Mel Kiper, Ojabo is projected to be picked by the Philadelphia Eagles with the 16th total choose. Kiper calls Ojabo “a pure pass-rusher who remains to be growing as a run defender.”
