As a skilled cornerback for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League, Jeffrey Chidera Okudah has won numerous awards (NFL).

Biography of Jeff Okudah

At South Grand Prairie High School in Grand Prairie, Texas, where he excelled at football, Okudah was born on February 2, 1999. He committed to Ohio State University in January 2017 and became a five-star recruit there, where he was a standout athlete.

As a true freshman in 2017, Jeff Okudah started each of Ohio State’s 14 games and made 17 tackles. He was a sophomore in 2018 who played in 13 games and made 32 tackles as he continued to stand out. He recorded 34 tackles, 9 passes defended, and 3 interceptions after making his first career interception against the Miami Redhawks in his junior season. In addition to being named to the Jim Thorpe Trophy shortlist, his performance this year garnered him unanimous All-American recognition.

A top cornerback prospect in the 2020 NFL Draft, Okudah was rated as such because of his stellar collegiate performance. He was chosen by the Detroit Lions with the third overall pick, and on July 13, 2020, he committed to the organization by signing a four-year rookie contract. Including a $21.944 million signing bonus, the contract was worth $33.528 million in total.

Sadly, Okudah had a hamstring injury in training camp and was unable to play in the first game. On his comeback, he allowed six completions for 96 yards in Week 2’s game against the Green Bay Packers. On a pass thrown by Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray the next week, he recovered and made his first career interception. Okudah was placed on injured reserve after his rookie season was cut short by a core muscle injury.

During the Lions’ season opener against the San Francisco 49ers in 2021, Okudah tore his Achilles tendon, and he was once more placed on injured reserve. He was dealt by the Lions to the Atlanta Falcons on April 11, 2023, in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the upcoming 2023 NFL Draft. Okudah is still a very gifted player with an exciting NFL future despite his setbacks.
