The Dallas Cowboys have selected Defensive Lineman Osa Odighizuwa with a 3rd-round pick, 75th overall, in the 2021 NFL Draft. He follows older brother Owa into the league after a five-year career at UCLA.
The Cowboys need help at both DE and DT and Odighizuwa has that position flexibility. He’s played tackle for the Bruins but has the athleticism to play on the ends in certain packages.

With pick 75 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, the #Cowboys are selecting DT Osa Odighizuwa.
Ironically, Osa will be hopefully filling the void left by the retirement of Tyrone Crawford. Having that same versatility on the defensive line, Crawford was also a 3rd-round pick for Dallas in 2012.
Welcome to the Cowboys, Osa Odighizuwa!
