Azeez Ojulari

21-Year-Old LinebackerLB
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Taken with the 50th overall pick, Ojulari actually slipped a bit due to concerns about a high school knee injury he claimed is long behind him. At 6-3, 240 and with 4.63 speed, he only has average size for the position, but he's explosive and athletic. He should start immediately on the outside as the team's top edge rusher and provide pressure, along with the team's best defensive lineman, Leonard Williams. Read Past Outlooks

The Giants selected Ojulari in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft, 50th overall.
ANALYSIS
Ojulari (6-foot-2, 249 pounds) might have gone earlier if not for some lingering concern around a high school knee injury, because his production at Georgia was solid and his athletic testing was quite good. Ojulari already has a three-down build and brings reach (34.5-inch arms) and speed (4.63-second 40) to both anchor and pursue from the edge. He's a substantial firepower boost to a Giants defense that's quietly loaded with talent.
