The Browns traded Ogbah to the Chiefs on Monday in exchange for Eric Murray, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The 32nd overall pick from the 2016 NFL Draft started each of his 40 games in three seasons for the Browns, recording 122 tackles (70 solo), 12.5 sacks and 17 passes defensed. While his pass-rushing skill never progressed after a 5.5-sack rookie campaign, Ogbah at least proved to be a solid run defender with a propensity for batting down throws. He became expandable after the Browns traded for Olivier Vernon, while the Chiefs have an obvious need for an edge rusher after losing Dee Ford and Justin Houston earlier this offseason. Ogbah likely will handle one of the starting spots at defensive end as the Chiefs transition to a 4-3 scheme under new coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
As great as Myles Garrett appears, anyone who overlooks Ogbah does so at their own peril. He doesn't have the quickness or flexibility to bend around blockers, but Ogbah sets the edge well and boasts top-shelf explosiveness in a straight line, making him a candidate to collapse the pocket when he catches a split gap. With 4.6 speed and a big wingspan, Ogbah (6-4, 275) figures to enjoy at least a couple seasons with double-digit sacks, especially with Garrett crashing the pocket from the other side.
Ogbah nearly fell to the third round of the 2016 draft, but he's already looking worth the pick for Cleveland. His 2016 stats might not look like much, but it's fine work for a rookie playing 850 snaps. His prospect profile shows untapped upside -- he posted double-digit sacks his last two years in college, and he's an explosive athlete with 4.63 speed at 6-4, 275. With the chance to play something closer to 1,000 snaps in new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams' likely 4-3 defense, Ogbah should take the next step as an IDP.
