Biography

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 in his rookie campaign after enjoying a productive college career north of the border at the University of Manitoba, as the first member of the Bisons program to be drafted. Onyemata showed significant improvement in 2018, appearing in all 16 games with four starts posting 36 tackles (23 solo), adding a career-high 4.5 sacks, one forced fumble and one pass defensed. In 2019, he looks to flourish with the formidable Saints defensive front that ranked second in the NFL in run defense.
