Even after tearing his Achilles tendon at Michigan Pro Day, David Ojabo has potentially found a great match for his talents.
A surefire first-round selection ahead of his Pro Day, the injury caused Ojabo to slip into the draft into the waiting arms of familiar faces within the Baltimore Ravens franchise. John Harbaugh and defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald are well aware of what Ojabo can bring to a defense, which is why the selection received high marks from pundits across the country.
According to Barry Werner of Yahoo Sports, the Ravens hit the home run with their selection of Ojabo in the second round of the draft. Giving the Ravens an “A” grade in his draft play.
“David Ojabo goes from Jim Harbaugh to John Harbaugh,” Werner wrote. “He blew his Achilles on Pro Day. The Ravens have enough talent on defense to wait for him to heal and become a force in the NFL. He had 11 sacks and 12 tackles for the loss in 2021. Lacks experience and you have to watch his recovery. When he’s healthy, it’s second-round stealing.”
