Scotland’s David Ojabo has been selected by the ボルチモア・レイヴンズ in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft in Las Vegas.

The 21-year-old linebacker, who was raised in アバディーン after moving from ナイジェリア aged seven, had been projected as a first-round pick before tearing an Achilles tendon in March.

Ojabo had not played the sport when he moved to アメリカ to go to a New Jersey high school, where he played basketball before being encouraged to give American football a go aged 17.

He learned quickly and a year later was playing for the University of Michigan’s team, the Wolverines.

Last year he starred, 作る 11 sacks and helping his side win the Big 10 チャンピオンシップ.

His team-mate and fellow defensive end Aidan Hutchinson was selected by the Detroit Lions with the second overall pick on Thursday.

Ojabo had his parents with him for the draft, after they were flown out from Aberdeen to surprise him.
