Oklahoma linebacker Ogbonnia Okoronkwo was one of the top performers on this year's team that won the Big 12 and reached the College Football Playoff.

Okoronkwo recorded 76 tackles, eight sacks, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and two pass breakups. For his efforts, he was named co-Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year, All-Big 12 First Team and Second Team All-American.

Okoronkwo is projected to go in the middle rounds of the 2018 NFL Draft, according to Walter Football.

His stock could rise however as the draft process rolls along.
