Another collosal bust from the 2007 draft. Okwo was selected with the Bears’ own third-round draft pick that year. The team was in the thick of Lance Briggs’ (first) contract dispute, and Angelo projected Okwo to have a similar skillset to Briggs. Okwo was placed on injured reserve prior to his rookie season, then released before the 2008 campaign. Nothing more to say about the player other than Angelo threw away a high draft pick for nothing in the end.
