After slipping on the first day of the draft, former Oklahoma State defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah has been drafted by the Cleveland Browns with the first pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Ogbah is a terrorizing pass rusher, and will be a very solid addition to the Browns defensive front.

"It’s a well-deserved honor and we are extremely proud,” OSU coach Mike Gundy said in a press release sent by the University. “Emmanuel took care of his business here at Oklahoma State and did everything the right way. They are getting a big time player. He is a blue collar player who has worked extremely hard and will be a great addition to their organization. Look forward to watching him at the next level."

Ogbah racked up 133 tackles and 26.5 sacks in his three years at Oklahoma State, while earning All-American and AP Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year honors. Ogbah opted to forgo his final year of eligibility for the draft.
