Is Romeo Okwara the new Nigerian nightmare in the National Football League? Born of Nigerian parentage in Charlotte, NC, Okwara is the undrafted DE for the New York Giants, and with the 6 ft 5 inblocking of a punt last week, he is already being touted as a force to reckon with in the NFL. Okwara is only 21 years old (June 17, 1995) and graduated from Notre Dame. He is 6ft. 5in and weighs 265 lb. Let’s watch out for his exploits and see how he helps Giants this year.
