Ojabo tore his Achilles tendon during Michigan’s pre-draft Pro Day. He was drafted by the Ravens with the 45th overall pick in the second round in the 2022 NFL Draft. He had been on injured reserve since August 31st.
Ojabo is a force on the field when healthy. He recorded 12 tackles for loss, 11 sacks, and 5 fumble recoveries in his final season at Michigan. Ojabo was a First-team All-B1G selection in 2021 and Second-team All-American.
Ojabo paired with Aidan Hutchinson to form one of the best tandems in college football. Both players helped Michigan go 12-2 and win the B1G Championship Game over Iowa. The Wolverines would go on to the College Football Playoff before falling to eventual national champion Georgia.
So far, the signs are good for Ojabo. Let’s hope he can make an impact like he did in college with the Ravens soon.
