    is TE our weakest

    A lot to take in there... enough to deserve it's own thread Looking Ahead to the 2019 Browns' D... Vikes are an odd-ish choice. A couple parallels ring true, but are they enough when others fall flat? Our best Barr parallel walked months ago... secondaries have opposite strengths. On plus side a Schobert-Kendricks comparison isn't a bad one... Would Wilks' 2017 Panthers' D make more sense? Personnel seem further apart, but the DC impact has to be revealing. Step removed from DC, but his 2018 AZ D has more player parallels.

    Maybe, but that's not what was being said by "players" calling foul.

    Player v. Player

    With Duke the first to utter this... Bottom line for me in this whole non-event was that I did not see Baker getting anywhere near Duke's "wallet" with his comments. Duke's wallet was already set thru 2021... when he'll be 28. His use in 2019 will have no negative impact on his 2022 contract... when he'll be 29. In fact it's an easier argument to make that saving miles in the short term will help him in the long run. Another argument that's easier to make? That Duke's lil hissy messed with the wallets of 52 teammates...

    In a related story "several Browns" were just added to Dorsey's trade list...

    lol... I know that the older I get the more brain farts I am permitted. If you need my agent's number, let me know...

    is TE our weakest

    Nope... and I still don't. DL shooting gaps to make tackles while leaving OL free to flatten the back 7 is about as far from that as can be. DL set up LBs by "occupying OL", e.g., a single DT tying up two OL. Put another way te DL "block" for the LB(s).

    Why would any of them comment on Duke?

    is TE our weakest

    While LB is a weak room for us.... weaker than TE... like TE it's going to be a deemphasized position in 2019. I see a lot of Spread Offense coming in 2019 and with our WR room only Njoku is going to see the field in that set. We've got a helluva DL payroll for them to free up LBs.... We've assembled a disruptive DL... vs. run as well as pass... and disruptive DLs penetrate and make plays. They don't set up LBs. Garrett and Vernon cut off everything wide for Richardson, Ogun and LBs to stuff 4-on-3 in between.

    Baker is the face of the franchise. That face essentially said, "Lead, follow or get out of the way." I have no issue with that.

    Desmond Harrison Released

    Yup...and Joe favors fluid movers... which Harrison was. Problem was Harrison could not run block and that is the OL's "Job 1" these days. ... but at the wrong position...

    Browns Depth Chart 2019

    Z, your total is 52... 24 O + 25 D +3 ST... so you have room to keep Kalis, which since he is currently a #1 might be wise. FIFY

    Cut Browns Find New Home Thread

    Terelle Pryor signed 1-year deal with JAX today. Something like his 6th team...

    Right Guard - it’s not just deodorant

    Looks more OT-ish to me... plays too high to handle NFL-grade DTs. Coach Flugs would be all over him about standing up at the snap and hopping into any movement (wasted motion). What I do like is that even with the wasted motion early he gets to smaller, quicker 2nd-level defenders consistently and eliminates them from the play without having to reach for them. That takes some quick feet.

    Gerald McCoy signs with Panthers

    Read a musing today that McCoy just might drag out signing past the upcoming mandatory mini-camps. Agree.... $13mm was not a barrier... at least not if we really thought McCoy was a key piece to add to our 2019 puzzle.

    Then why did you go there?

    Right Guard - it’s not just deodorant

    Agree that there's still time, but... OTAs are about more than playbook. Lotta tech work goes on with the OL and reports are that this is where Corbett's issues lie. As for being drafted to replace Joe.... no. Remember it was Bito that got the look there. While both are 6'4 at 81" Bito's wingspan is nearly 3" greater than Corb's...

    Gerald McCoy signs with Panthers

    Which is the definition of "a position of strength". It usually takes you more than consecutive posts for you to contradict yourself

    Not even the league's best RG vs. its worst Edge rusher??? C'mon man....

    Gerald McCoy signs with Panthers

    Yet that is exactly what JD did when he swapped Zeitler for Vernon. You have to give value to get value.

    Gerald McCoy signs with Panthers

    I get the above Ogun love... I really do.... but as I wrote in the Depth Chart thread, so far Corbett ain't cutting it in OTAs. So if Ogun's departure results in an upgrade of our OL in return, then it's a move which may need to be made. If we can't run effectively, then we goes nowhere in 2019. If we go nowhere in 2019, then this locker room could disintegrate and the window that could have been may never be. Still plenty of time... Austin or another OG still might emerge and be "adequate", but this kind of thinking has to start now.

    Browns Depth Chart 2019

    Actually nothing in Austin's Combine screamed "punch" which comes from hip snap as much as it does arm thrust. His 1.76 10-yd split and 28" vert are both pedestrian results, but even more disappointing was his 3-cone at 7.87 sec. PFF found 3-cone to be the most highly correlated predictor of OG success.

    Gerald McCoy signs with Panthers

    Should we sign McCoy, then I wonder if Ogun becomes trade bait for OL help...

    Browns Depth Chart 2019

    Depth is cheap... quality depth is not. We have quality depth in a few areas, but OL is not one of them.
