The Baltimore Ravens selected outside linebacker Odafe Oweh with the No. 31 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft. He had a solid rookie season, coming out of the gate strong and playing well, but he ended up suffering an injury that caused him to miss the final two games of the 2021 season.

Oweh was one of the Baltimore players to speak to the media following the team’s second day of voluntary organized team activities. The former Penn State University star was asked about how he’s feeling entering his second season as opposed to his rookie year, and he talked about how he feels that he’s farther along now.

“I feel like just the knowledge of things that I didn’t know my rookie year. Things I didn’t even know I didn’t know in the classroom,"  he said of the differences. "In terms of my body, being more prepared. You know I had the shoulder thing. I feel like everything else … I’m farther ahead of where I was rookie camp, [and] all that stuff. I just feel better as an athlete. And then, obviously, being a good outside linebacker, I feel good as well.”
