4. Azeez Ojulari, Defensive End, Georgia

One of the best college football players in 2020 was Georgia’s defensive end, Azeez Ojulari. In 10 games in 2020, Ojulari has 31 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss, 8.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, and two pass deflections. The only question for the Browns would be if he is suited to play in the 4-3 defense.

At 6-foot-3, 240 pounds, many believe the perfect home for Ojulari would be in the 3-4 defense. However, others have speculated for the best NFL career he may be better off putting on 25 pounds and playing defensive end in the 4-3 scheme.

Ojulari wouldn’t be a day one starter for the Browns, but after a year of studying and putting on weight and muscle, he could end up being a dominant pass rusher. The question is, will the Browns want to groom and wait on a first-round pick?

The NFL has turned into a pass-rushing league, and this draft is somewhat limited on elite pass rushers. While there will likely be five or six ends taken in the first round, none of these prospects are top-10 talents. However, with such an emphasis in the league, you could see teams stretch their draft boards and reach for a defensive end which makes the idea of getting Ojulari a little less likely.

While the Browns have needs at other positions, I’m not sure Berry could pass on Ojulari if he makes it to pick No. 26. His athleticism and motor is much to be desired, so if he would happen to slide, fans should be excited if he ends up in Brown and orange.
