Los Angeles Chargers select UCLA DL Otito Ogbonnia in 5th round of NFL Draft

One Bruin doesn’t have to go very far to start his professional career.

The Los Angeles Chargers selected UCLA football defensive lineman Otito Ogbonnia with the No. 160 overall pick in the 5th round of the 2022 NFL Draft on Saturday. Ogbonnia is the third Bruin to leave the board, following in the footsteps of Denver Broncos tight end Greg Dulcich and Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Sean Rhyan.

Ogbonnia is the second UCLA defensive lineman to be selected in the last two drafts, with Osa Odighizuwa going to the Dallas Cowboys in the third round in 2021.
