American football guard Michael Onwenu plays for the National Football League’s New England Patriots. He is 1.91 m tall and 159 kg in weight. His high school was Cass Technical. He chose Michigan over other schools like Alabama and Ohio State despite being the top recruit in his class in the state of Michigan.

Prior to spending the final three years of his career at right guard, starting the final two, he participated in both offensive and defensive line play during his freshman year. His junior and senior years saw him earn third-team all-Big Ten Conference honors.

The 2020 NFL Draft’s sixth round saw the New England Patriots select him. He participated in the offensive line’s early stages of his first season. He played the right tackle position, both guard positions, and the sixth offensive lineman/jumbo tight end. He began the first two games of the season as the sixth offensive lineman, but against the Las Vegas Raiders, he started at left guard for the first time in his career.
