Former Oklahoma State defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah wrote an open letter to the NFL via the Players' Tribune.

Ogbah's draft position has long been discussed since his graduation. Most current mock drafts have Ogbah going in the late-first to early-second rounds. A recent CBS scouting report had him going at No. 31 to the Carolina Panthers but a full mock draft from the same site had him dropping to No. 45 to the Los Angeles Rams.

Ogbah's open letter talks about his humble upbringings from Lagos, Nigeria. The prospect also says that his father is the one who installed Ogbah's work ethic through example.

"If you draft me, you will get a productive player who works hard at everything he does, like he learned to from his father. You will also get a humble player. It is not about the sack numbers for me. It is not about the attention."

Ogbah is clearly ready for the challenge that the NFL will bring. The humble, soft-spoken defensive end knows what it takes, and he not only wants to excel in the league but also to lead his team to a Super Bowl. To read the full article click here.
