3. Re-sign Greg Robinson

How Greg Robinson didn’t start the season as the Browns’ left tackle is one of the great mysteries of the season.

Instead, Cleveland coach Hue Jackson went with Desmond Harrison. The rookie from West Georgia was decent enough that you’d like to see more, but he was clearly overmatched by his sixth week.

Harrison, who is 6-6 and listed at 295 pounds, needs to bulk up and add strength to be in consideration for the starting the job.

The offensive line looked a heck-of-a-lot better when Robinson took over and the problem of Baker Mayfield taking a bunch of sacks disappeared.

Robinson was the former No.2 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft and the Browns are already his third team. Fortunately, his career has been salvaged.

His emergence also means Cleveland doesn’t have to use the 17th overall pick in this year’s draft on a left tackle.

That doesn’t mean Dorsey should ignore the position completely, but it does afford him the opportunity to fill some other needs, knowing that a Robinson-Harrison combination will likely be able to fortify the spot for at least the 2019 season and perhaps a little beyond.
