Drafted out of the Ivy League as a safety, Foye Oluokun defied everyone's expectations. He converted to linebacker and year-by-year made an impression on the coaching staff.

After Deion Jones' rapid downfall, Oluokun became the Falcons' best linebacker. He led the NFL in tackles in 2021 which landed him a lucrative contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Foye led the league once again in tackle as a first-year Jaguar and continues to prove he is one of the best in the game.

The Falcons would have loved to have been the ones to sign him to a huge contract but they couldn't afford it at the time. Nonetheless, this was a sixth-round steal.
