Personal Life

Thayer Academy coach Jeff Toussaint calls his offensive lineman Samson Okunlola a five-star on and off the field. On the field, Toussaint raves about Okunlola’s athletic skill set and size. “I certainly think if he stays healthy and wherever he goes and plays in college, he’ll have a chance to play in the NFL,” the coach said. Ever since he was a child, Okunlola has been bigger than his competition -- so much so that in his youth, he couldn’t play Pop Warner at times due to his size. Instead, he suited up for the Brockton Raiders of American Youth Football, which doesn't have any weight limits. Okunlola has a brother, Samuel Okunlola, who signed with Pittsburgh in the Class of 2022. Okunlola says his hobby is pottery, and he plans on majoring in business. His parents are Monica and Jomel Okunlol. He has two other siblings.

2019 Draft: Rnd 2 Pick 6
Samson Okunlola reminds us of Cody Ford due to his frame, length and ability as a run blocker at the same stage. Both showed the ability to move defenders as drive blockers and have the skill set to play multiple spots along the offensive line at the next level.
