Life as a Ram
Oshiomogho Atogwe was the Rams' third round draft selection in the 2005 NFL Draft, 66th overall. Atogwe wasn't a starter right away. Late in the 2005 season, the Rams chance a a playoff birth was eliminated and Atogwe got some playing time. He used it to his advantage and impressed the coaching staff. In the little time he played during his rookie year, Atogwe totaled only 12 tackles, one and a half of which were sacks, and 1 interception, which he returned for 42 yards. The interception, the first of his young career, came in the 4th quarter of the week 17 win at Dallas. Atogwe impressed the coaches enough to earn a starting role for the start of the 2006 season.
During the 2006 season, Atogwe totaled 75 tackles, 1 sack, and 3 interceptions. His three interceptions came during weeks 4, 5, and 12 against Detroit, Arizona, and San Francisco.
Atogwe will go into the 2007 season as the starter at the free safety position.
The College Years
Atogwe attended Stanford University. Coming from Canada in 2000, he was an unknown. He became one of the top players on the squad. In his first year of starting back in 2002, Atogwe led the Cardinals in tackles while playing the strong safety position. For the 2003 season, he made the transition to free safety and repeated as the team's leading tackler. He also led the Pac-10 in forced fumbles with six during that year. After his junior year, Atogwe passed up on the decision to go pro. He elected to stay back in college for his 5th year. Again, during his senior year at Stanford, Atogwe lead the team in tackles. In his entire college career, Atogwe totaled 241 tackles in 44 games. He recorded one sack and nine interceptions. He majored in Science.
One thing many people didn't know about Atogwe is he was also a member of the Cardinals track team in 2001 and 2002. He competed in sprints and jumps. In 2002, he posted a 22-foot-10 inch in the long jump and 43-foot-4 inch in the triple jump.
Back in High School
Atogwe was one of Canada's premiere prospects. he attended W.F. Herman Secondary School. A two year starter at running back and cornerback, he was named the league's defensive MVP in 1999 and was all-city running back. Also he was an All-Canadian team. He competed in Ontario Varsity Football League during the summers. He competed in four different sports during his high school years; football, basketball, soccer, and track.

Personal Info
Born Oshiomogho Isaac Atogwe in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. His name is pronounced OH-shim-ago uh-TOG-way. His parents are of Nigerian descent. He currently lives in St. Charles, Mo.
The Bottom Line
Atogwe is a young, talented player. He has hardly even begun to show his potential. In the upcoming years, he will only improve. He will become a play maker and one of the most valuable members to the Ram's defensive squad. Ever since the Rams didn't resign Adam Archuleta, Atogwe has become my favorite Ram.
