With the NFL Draft just around the corner, the Cleveland Browns are narrowing their shopping list of prospects and are likely to consider Joey Bosa and Emmanuel Ogbah for their first pick.

The Browns called both Bosa and Ogbah to interviews and drills and have so far impressed the team that is set to select second come NFL Draft which will be from April 28 to 30 at the Auditorium Theater in Chicago Illinois.

As reported by NFL network through Cleveland.com the Browns might take a second look at Bosa who ran a 4.86 in the 40 yard line with a board jump of 10’0” while Ogbah overwhelmed others with his 4.63 with a vertical jump of 35.5 and a broad jump of 10’1”. Although the number are not in his favor, Bosa still thinks he is the right man for the Browns.

“You’re pretty blown out by the time you get to the workout. Rough, long day, but happy I got to do the things I did pretty well, move on to Pro Day,” Bosa said.

He disclosed that he got tired from the workout since he had to get up at 5:30 a.m. and got up the other day at 3 a.m. for a routine drug test set at 4:30 a.m. He hopes that his credentials will prove his worth the no. 1 pick for the Browns.

Bosa is a junior, who played as defensive end for the Ohio Buckeyes. At age 20, he was already named to the College All-American, CFP Champion, Sugar Bowl Champion and Big Ten Champion. He was also a two time First Team All-Big Ten and two time Smith-Brown Defensive Lineman of the Year.

On the other hand, Ogbah had impressive runs on the drills and surely left an impression among the scouts on the field. He is considered as one of the top five rush passers that will make headlines come Draft Day.

A junior and playing for the Oklahoma State Cowboys, Ogbah played in all 13 games during his 2013 season and he finished with 20 tackles and four sacks. In 2014, Ogbah was named to the Big-12 Defensive Lineman of the Year with a record of 49 tackles and 11 sacks.
