Trade Analysis: Former Oklahoma State defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah was reportedly the Dallas Cowboys target in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. But the Cleveland Browns snatched him up with the 32nd overall pick in the draft, two selections prior to the Cowboys pick. Dallas would go on to select Notre Dame linebacker Jaylon Smith instead.
If their interest in Ogbah is legit, then Dallas could try to trade for the talented young pass rusher. The main obstacle to any possible exchange though is the fact he plays for the Browns. Cleveland clearly has a need at the quarterback position, but it’s unlikely Romo would want to play for a franchise that just went 1-15. If Tony has any say about where he is traded, which I believe he does, than the Browns are an unlikely landing spot.
Still, Ogbah would be the kind of trade target Dallas likely covets. A young player whom they’ve apparently had a previous interest in, and someone who could bolster their defense.
