Ogbah loves pressure of being a high pick

Browns linebacker Emmanuel Ogbah said he loves the pressure of being a second-round draft choice.

BEREA, Ohio--Browns second-round draft pick Emmanuel Ogbah said he knows a lot is expected of him but said he relishes the pressure.

Taken with the 32nd overall pick at the top of the second-round, Ogbah knows he's being counted on to revive the Browns non-existent pass rush from 2015.

"I love the pressure," Ogbah said. "You got drafted high for a reason. They expect you to come out there and contribute and I want to do the best I can to be that person."

Ogbah doesn't view the pressure as being a negative, but rather a positive.

"That's a great thing," he said. "I love the pressure. I love  competition, too. I want to be the best and I just thrive on competition."
