5 Best Cleveland Browns third round draft picks since 1999
3. Larry Ogunjobi, DT
This is the first current Brown to make the list and he has been a pleasant surprise through his first three years in the league. He was the 65th overall pick out of Charlotte University so not many fans knew much about him.
He dressed for 14 games as a rookie and had only one sack but he made enough of an impression that he earned the starting role the year after in 2018. Once he became a starter there was no looking back.
As a defensive tackle he doesn’t put up flashy numbers but he is a force in the middle of the defense and he is consistent. He has only missed one game the past two seasons and that was for his role in the brawl versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.
His numbers are almost identical the past two years with five and a half sacks each and just over 50 tackles and ten tackles for loss. He’s not the biggest at his position but he more than holds his own.
There isn’t a lot to his career yet because he is young but he makes impact plays and has shown durability which is both important. If he continues this level of play Cleveland will eventually have to give him a contract extension. He could be a contributor on this team for years to come.
