The Cleveland Browns have now signed half of their 2017 draft picks after agreeing to a deal with third-round pick Larry Ogunjobi this afternoon.
The Cleveland Browns have now signed five of the team’s 10 2017 draft picks after inking Larry Ogunjobi to a deal this afternoon.
Ogunjobi was a third-round selection out of UNC-Charlotte and comes to the Browns looking to contribute to what is a great defensive line, at least on paper.

The signing of Ogunjobi is nice, but it does highlight the fact the Browns have not yet signed Garrett, Jabrill Peppers, David Njoku or DeShone Kizer.
There haven’t been any rumblings about any looming holdouts, but one never knows when it comes to the business side of the NFL.
But for now fans can be excited that the Browns are signing their picks at a steady pace. It makes sense that the higher picks may go through some more negotiations before signing, based on the amount of money and specific language being agreed upon in the contract.
Ogunjobi signing doesn’t guarantee him a spot on the final roster, but it would be hard to imagine him not making it. The current rebuild the Browns are in values youth and potential over other veterans who have not been stars, so expect Ogunjobi to be suiting up in Week 1.
It is now a waiting game to see when the other picks sign, but it is still May so there is no need to worry. June is a different story, but we will wait patiently until then.
