Drafted in the 5th round by the Atlanta Falcons in 2006, Ojinnaka spent 4 years in Atlanta before moving on to play for the New EnglandPatriots in 2010. That year, he was part of the best offensive line in the NFL. Ojinnaka would go on to play for the Indianapolis Colts and St. Louis Rams, utilizing his speed and power to become one of the fiercest offensive guards in the league.After over 100 games and achieving his childhood dream of playing in the NFL, Ojinnaka now hopes to realize another lifelong dream: winning the Ring of Honor World Heavyweight Championship.
