Okoronkwo, 23, was taken with the No. 160 overall pick in the fifth-round of this year’s draft by the Rams. Los Angeles actually traded up with the Broncos and sent two sixth-round picks to Denver as part of the deal to select Okoronkwo.
Okoronkwo underwent foot surgery a few weeks after the draft.
During his four-year college career at Oklahoma, Okoronkwo recorded 162 tackles, 33 tackles for a loss, 20 sacks, five forced fumbles, two recoveries and five pass defenses over the course of 35 games.
