Former Oklahoma linebacker Curtis Bolton signed with the Green Bay Packers after going undrafted in the 2019 NFL Draft.
The Murietta, California native only got brief playing time in his first three years in Norman, but he earned the starting position before the 2018 season began. He went on to start in all 14 games for the Sooners in 2018.
It didn't take long for Bolton to prove why he earned the starting job. In the first game of the year against Florida Atlantic, Bolton racked up six tackles and scored a touchdown off of a blocked punt. Bolton was named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week after the performance.
Bolton continued to be one of the few bright spots on a historically bad defense. He racked up 139 total tackles, which ranked ninth in the country. Along with this, he had 4.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries and scored two touchdowns on blocked punts.
