NFL CAREER – Possessing a unique combination of size and speed and the ability to play several positions on the defensive line, this Lagos, Nigeria native earned a spot on New Orleans' defensive line rotation his rookie campaign after enjoying a productive college career north of the border at the University of Manitoba. Onyemata was the first member of the Bisons program to be drafted. Onyemata continued to flourish in 2021 with a formidable Saints defensive front that ranked first in the NFL in red zone defense, starting all 11 games he played in, recording 34 tackles (12 solo), 2.0 sacks and his first career fumble recovery. He signed a three-year contract at the beginning of the 2020 offseason and has developed into a dominant force on New Orleans' defensive front.
