Okoronkwo is an interesting possibility because he profiles well as a “tweener”, which means a guy who isn’t really fit to be a 4-3 DE due to his smaller stature, but makes him almost a perfect fit as a 3-4 OLB. Okoronkwo measured in at 6015 (6’1 5/8”) though he has extremely long arms which helps him distance tackles as they try to punch his chest plate.
Okoronkwo is a versatile Edge player who offers a high motor, ability to bend the corner, and more than one way to win as a pass rusher. Okoronkwo often used inside moves on OT’s who over-set finding an easy route to pressuring QB’s.
As PFF notes, Okoronkwo was very productive last season registering nine sacks on the season:

The Rams are going to continue filling out their defense ensuring Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips has all the tools he needs to be successful. OLB is a large question mark moving forward, and Okoronkwo offers an option for the Rams to plug-and-play.
