Breshad Perriman wasn’t the only first-round pick who resserected his career with the Browns last season.

Greg Robinson signed with the Cleveland Browns as his third team after being drafted No. 2 overall by the Rams in 2015.

At the start of the season, the Browns were a mess at left tackle after Joe Thomas’ retirement.

The coaching staff though Shon Coleman could handle the gig, but it seems like two days into camp he was replaced.

Then coach Hue Jackson even experimented with rookie Austin Corbett and guard Joel Bitonio at the spot.

Fortunately, the Browns didn’t move either to the spot. Corbett probably would’ve been overwhelmed and Bitonio went on play in the Pro Bowl.

Jackson eventually went with rookie Desmond Harrison at the position. It was a stretch to think Harrison could hold down the position considering his past. He was a blue chip recruit coming out of high school, some twists and turns in his life had him finish his college career a tiny college named West Georgia.

Harrison did some good and some bad. He looked like what he was: A rookie with potential who was put into too important of a role too soon.

Welp, Hue Jackson got fired and Freddie Kitchens put Robinson in at starter.

After that decision, Baker Mayfield got sacked a whole lot less.

The Browns shouldn’t give up looking for their next franchise left tackle, but keep in mind, it’s hard to find Hall of Famers.

Robinson can hold down the position for the foreesable future until Harrison, or someone else, is ready to take over.
