Larry Ogunjobi – Fourth year defensive tackle
A familiar face on this defensive line and potentially one of the fan favorites, Larry Ogunjobi has made more impact than many would have anticipated. He quickly was able to work his way up the depth chart and set himself up as the No. 1 defensive tackle on the roster. While he is still young, there are some things he needs to develop in order to become more effective as his career unfolds.
In the last two seasons, Ogunjobi has put up almost exact numbers in each year. While last season he did get suspended for a game, he still was able to slightly improve his stats. 2017 was more of a development year for him as he played in 28 percent of snaps with a sack and 32 tackles to show for it.
In 2018, he had 52 tackles, in which 33 were solo, whereas in 2019 he had 50 tackles, but 35 were solo. His sack totals in both years were 5.5, giving him 11 in two seasons. Ogunjobi also had 10 tackles for loss in both seasons and had a slight dip in quarterback hits in 2019 where he had 13, yet in 2018 he had 15. He also saw a lot of snaps on the field in these years as well, as he played in 76 percent of the Browns defensive snaps in the last two years.
Ogunjobi has seen to be effective in both clogging the lane and in his ability to rush the passer. He and Garrett have formed a nice tandem, as usually when one of the, forces pressure, the other benefits and gets a hit off on the quarterback, or better yet a sack. After Garrett’s suspension, his production did falter. However, if he continues to develop and consistently improves, he’ll find himself having a decent career in the NFL.
