According to SB Nation’s Justin Melo, the Cleveland Browns have scheduled a pre-draft visit with Nebraska running back Devine Ozigbo.

Ozigbo is a bigger-sized running back (6-0, 230 lbs), and Pro Football Focus touted the percentage of his carries that led to a first down or a touchdown. Our Titans affiliate, Music City Miracles, conducted an interview with Ozigbo back in February. He was snubbed at the NFL Combine by not being invited, but several analysts have listed him at the tail end of their Top-100 prospects.
This season, 34.0 percent of Devine Ozigbo's carries resulted in a first down or touchdown, leading qualified B1G running backs. That is a REALLY good mark. pic.twitter.com/0hCmyHQEAC— PFF Draft (@PFF_College) February 19, 2019
Projections for what round Ozigbo will go in are all over the place, although most seem to be leaning toward the fifth round or later. Here is a recent analysis on him.
Cleveland doesn’t seem to have a particular need at running back with Nick Chubb, Duke Johnson, and Kareem Hunt. But the team could still use Johnson as a trade chip at some point, so starting younger again with Ozigbo is an option.
