Saluki senior defensive end Eze Obiora didn’t think very much of football when he was growing up in Manchester, England. He had played rugby since the age of nine and didn’t watch his first football game on TV until he was a junior in high school. During his freshman year at Dupage, Obiora played middle linebacker before moving to defensive end as a sophomore-- He recorded a whopping 14 sacks and was named All-Conference. His raw ability caught the eye of Southern Illinois' coaching staff, which offered him a scholarship. In 2012 Obiora was second in the MFVC with 8.0 sacks and second on the team in both quarterback hurries (6) and forced fumbles (2). He joins host Ric Serritella in this edition of the NFL Draft Bible Player Spotlight Show.
