The Texans finally will be taking a pass rusher on the second day of the 2022 NFL Draft and his name is David Ojabo from the University of Michigan.
This could be the spot where the Texans land a defensive end to rush the quarterback and if so Ojabo might still be left on the board with this choice.
The 6’5″ Ojabo weighs in at 250 pounds and had a 4.55 40-yard dash, so there is speed which we all know is helpful when pursuing the opposing quarterback. Ojabo in 13 games last season finished with 11 sacks, 12 tackles for loss and 24 solo tackles.
Natalie Miller of USA Today DraftWire had a positive outlook on Ojabo with the following projection on the pass rusher:
"“While the upside is limitless, and the pass rush skills are off the charts, teams may struggle jumping on Ojabo early, given his recent injury and his need to develop more especially in the run game.”"
Like every player, there is development to be had, but Ojabo could land right in line for the Texans to draft, meaning they could potentially have three future stars at cornerback, wide receiver and EDGE in their first three choices of the ’22 NFL Draft.
