4. Promotion for Corbett
Coming off a zero-win season, it was frustrating the Browns didn’t find impact players this high in the draft.
Chubb changed that with several breakout performances. Following the firing of Hue Jackson, he really seemed to flourish when Freddie Kitchens, who was the running backs coach, became the offensive coordinator.
Corbett, however, remained on the sidelines. His inability to help was made frustrating because it seemed like the Browns didn’t know how to use him. He played tackle in college, but few thought his future would be there in the NFL.
The Browns were eventually saved by Greg Robinson at the position and Corbett became the line’s sixth man.
Not anymore. If the former second-round pick doesn’t become Cleveland’s starting right guard in 2019, then more than a few card carrying members of the Dawg Pound will be playing the best card.
Redshirting only annoys the impatient, though, and hopefully Corbett benefited form sitting most of the year. He’s had a year in the system now and plenty of time to add strength in the weight room.
