He’s been projected as high as #2 pick in the draft. He’ll be a day one pick, regardless of how the order plays out. Ekwonu is that dude and some team is going to be VERY happy to have him.
Name an award, he’s won it or been a finalist. He’ll go down as one of the best ever at State, and that’s ALL-TIME not just by position.
- 2021 First-Team All-American (Unanimous, for only the third time in school history)
- 2021 First-Team All-ACC
- 2021 Jacobs Blocking Trophy (Best blocker in ACC)
- Finalist for the Outland Trophy (Best lineman in country)
- The Athletic ranked him the most feard lineman in the ACC
- 2020 & 2019 Second-Team All-ACC
- Multiple O-Lineman of the week awards, team awards, and academic awards
He was the best, plain and simple.
Do your thing young man, take over the NFL. #GoPack
