Oregon cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu tore his ACL in December, and that injury dropped the former Duck from the first round to almost undrafted. The Browns selected him Ekpre-Olomu in the seventh round, and they think they got a steal. General Manager Ray Farmer said the Browns’ medical staff believes Ekpre-Olomu’s injury, while severe, is one that he can fully recover from.
“We felt like we were getting the right kind of guy that we knew had talent,” Farmer said. “He suffered an unfortunate injury. We are confident he will get healthy.”
The Browns may elect to use 2015 as a red-shirt year, and place Ifo on the I/R for the entire season.
