The Baltimore Ravens made edge rusher Odafe Oweh their second first-round pick of the 2021 NFL draft. Baltimore is high on Oweh’s ability to develop into an all-around player at the next level, as he was able to put together an amazing performance at Penn State’s Pro Day.
Oweh has been on the field at the Ravens’ rookie minicamp as he gets his first taste of life in the NFL. When speaking to the Baltimore media, he said that he can feel himself getting better and that he loves the way that things are going right now.
In college, Oweh displayed his great physical traits but never had a ton of production to show for it. While he did a good job defending against the run and being an all-around player, he only accumulated seven sacks in three years with the Nittany Lions, including zero in his final collegiate season in 2020.
Oweh will be relied upon in a big way by the Ravens in 2021. The team lost three edge rushers in free agency, so he’ll be one of many players asked to make up that production. He has plenty of room to grow, and hopefully he’s able to do a lot of developing during his rookie season.
