DE Emmanuel Ogbah Made A Pre-Draft Visit To The Bills
Defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah made a pre-draft visit to the Bills. The Oklahoma State defensive end is 6’4″ and 273 pounds according to NFL.com. His visit to the Bills was reported by Rand Getlin from NFL Network earlier this month in the below tweet. Ogbah was born in Nigeria and moved to Houston when he was nine years old.
He’s a long-armed edge rusher who projects well as a 4-3 defensive end in the NFL. Buffalo plans on playing more 3-4 next season so if they drafted Ogbah it would be as an outside linebacker in their system.

He consistently put up numbers as he had more than one sack in all but two games according to the Sporting News. He not only out up consistent sack numbers in each game this season but he has also had more than 10 sacks in each of the past two seasons (10 in 2014 and 12.5 in 2015 according to Sports-Reference.com).
He could use some improvement against the run but he is one of the better edge pass rushers in the draft. He ran a 4.63 forty yard dash which was second-fastest amongst all defensive lineman to Charles Tapper who played for the University of Oklahoma.
Many have Ogbah projected to go in the first round but Lance Zierlein of NFL.com believes that one of the surprises of the draft could be that he falls to the second or third round.
Buffalo shouldn’t use their first round pick on him as there will be better talent available at #19 but he could be a possibility for them with the #49 pick and if Lance Zierlein is correct and he falls to the third they would be absolutely crazy to ignore him with their 80th overall pick in the third round.
