Cleveland Browns Scribbles about how Browns resist being tricky and draft Emmanuel Ogbah — Terry Pluto (photos)

BEREA, Ohio — Scribbles in my Cleveland Browns notebook as they finally make a pick in the second round:

1. By resisting the temptation to trade down from the No. 32 pick, the new Browns front office sent a different message Friday night. They had a middle first-round grade on Oklahoma State defensive lineman Emmanuel Ogbah, according to VP Sashi Brown. So they opened the second round by taking him.

2. Sometimes, a team in the same draft spot as the Browns decides they will trade down a few spots and hope to get their guy. It’s the “smartest guy in the room” syndrome. They didn’t fall into that trap. “He was just too good to pass up,” said Brown.

3. Ogbah was a 6-foot-4, 275-pound defensive end in Oklahoma State’s 4-3 system. The Browns believe he can be an edge rusher from an outside linebacker spot. He had 13 sacks in 2015 and 24 over the last two years. Speed is his greatest asset, with a 4.56 time in the 40-yard dash.

4. In Ourlads Draft guide, Dan Shonka wrote: “Ogbah has a 10-yard time (1.56) that a running back would kill to have.” Ogbah had the fastest 40-yard and 10-yard times of any defensive linemen at the NFL combine.

5. So in their first two picks — Baylor receiver Corey Coleman and Ogbah
