NFL coaches and scouts are in Ann Arbor for Michigan’s Pro Day workout on Friday to check out a number of prospects, including edge rusher David Ojabo.

Ojabo’s day did not go as planned, however. Ojabo needed medical attention after going down during a pass rush drill.

Jeffri Chadiha of NFL Media reports that Ojabo was clutching his left leg before being helped off the field. There’s no official word on his status at the moment.

Ojabo is projected to be a first-round pick by many after posting 11 sacks during Michigan’s run to the college football playoffs in 2021. Any injury that impacts his availability for the 2022 season would likely impact that standing, so plenty of people will be waiting to find out exactly what happened on Friday.

  1. That’s terrible. This kid is the real deal and has worked hit butt off to get where he is today. Here’s hoping the injury is minor!!!!!!! He deserves a big contract on a good team!

  2. That’s awful. Chances are whatever he was going to do at his pro day wasn’t going to move him up the boards, he was already top 15. But now, he could definitely drop. Maybe someone gets a steal taking him at the end of the 1st.

  3. Dang. Love this kids potential.

    Was hoping he’d slide to 29 someway but wasn’t hoping it would be this way.

  4. Been saying for years the Combine has some value ( not as much as most think)and that is mostly interviews imo. Pro Days are useless. They are scribted plays with familiar players. A player getting hurt will lose millions. The best judge of a player is GAME FILM, interviews, and talking to coaches. Hopefully it’s not a serious injury. I still think he’ll have a very good career in the NFL..

  5. Wow – every prospect’s nightmare. I hope it’s not serious and doesn’t affect the kid’s draft.

  6. Hopefully it’s nothing serious! This is why I would not let my client workout if he was projected to be a first round talent.
