The Cleveland Browns defensive line has some of the best young talent on the entire roster. With players like Myles Garrett, Larry Ogunjobi, and Genard Avery (ocassionally), the Browns have a lot of potential on the defensive line. One of the players that has shown spurts of his potential is defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah.
Ogbah was the 32nd overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft. Coming out of college, Ogbah showed great athleticism and pass rush ability. The 25-year-old has dealt with injuries the past two seasons, but he has still performed well when he was healthy.
Ogbah played 14 games in 2018, and he made 40 combined tackles, three tackles for loss, three sacks, and eight quarterback hits. He also excelled at swatting down passes at the line of scrimmage, as he registered eight passes defended this season.
The only year Ogbah played in all 16 games was during his rookie season, making 53 total tackles, eight tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, 16 quarterback hits, and three passes defended.
Ogbah has done well as the defensive end opposite of Garrett. The Browns have also used Ogbah as a three-technique during passing situations. Overall, Ogbah has great potential while having the versatility to play in different spots on the line.
