Okoronkwo was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He did not play in a game in 2018, however, as he spent the year on the Physically Unable to Perform list due to recovery from a foot surgery. He also missed six games in 2020 due to an elbow injury.
In 2021, he missed three games on injured reserve, but had two forced fumbles and two sacks. He also racked up 15 combined tackles, which was a career high. The 26-year-old will take his Super Bowl ring to join a young team.
