NFL CAREER – A versatile player who has the ability to rush the passer, set the edge on run plays or drop into pass coverage, Alex Okafor came to New Orleans after spending the first four seasons of his NFL career with the Arizona Cardinals, who originally picked him in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft (103rd overall) out of the University of Texas. In his first season in New Orleans Okafor had his best season as a pro, in only 10 games, he posted 43 tackles (27 solo), 4.5 sacks, four passes defensed and 2 forced fumbles before an Achilles injury caused him to miss the rest of the season. Overall in 52 career appearances with 35 starts he has posted 143 tackles (80 solo), 18 sacks for a loss of 126.5 yards, one interception, nine passes defensed, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, three special teams tackles and one fumble recovery on coverage units.
