The Cleveland Browns were a completely undisciplined team that looked unprepared and frantic for the majority of their games last year. However, a lot of that seemed to be on Freddie Kitchens who just seemed like he was in way over his head.
So, if the Browns can get on track and be the team that lives up to the sum of their talent then which would you rather have: a 3rd round pick or a very good right tackle?
The choice seems to be obvious and surprisingly the Browns have the cap space to easily afford a new contract for Conklin.
Like the Jets, the Browns have a chance to put real effort into rebuilding their offensive line this offseason and Conklin gives them the chance to immediately solve one offensive tackle position.
With a 1st round left tackle, Joel Bitonio and Jack Conklin the Browns would have their best offensive line since the Joe Thomas and Alex Mack days, but this time they would have Baker Mayfield and a start studded cast around them.
Make the call and stop messing around before your franchise quarterback is so beaten down that he can’t be saved.
Potential trade: 3rd round (74th and 90th)
