Ngata apparently not what Browns wanted

The Browns had a chance to draft run-stuffer Haloti Ngata with the 12th pick in this year’s draft. They didn’t, and allowed the Baltimore Ravens to take him after a trade. While Kamerion Wimbley may be a good player in the future, Ngata is already paying dividends for the brick wall that is the Ravens defense. The rookie out of Oregon is doing for the Ravens what Ted Washington should be doing for the Browns – stopping the run. On draft day, the Browns felt their need for a pass-rusher was greater than their desire for a nose tackle who could clog up the middle and stop the run. So far, unfortunately, neither aspect has shown any improvement for the Browns defense.
