During John Abraham's absence from the first half of the preseason, Okafor logged time as the starting weakside linebacker, which could extend into the regular season if Abraham is suspended for a June DUI arrest. Okafor himself has made just one appearance as a professional after sustaining a torn biceps in Week 3 last year, but during his final two collegiate campaigns at Texas, he displayed superior pass-rushing skills, totaling 19.5 sacks across 24 games.
