Browns OL coach Bob Wylie explained that they aren’t concerned about second-round OL Austin Corbett, who had a quiet offseason, and their focus is simply on finding the best position fit for him.
“We’re not concerned about him the player. We’re just concerned about which one is his best spot,” Wylie said, via Dan Labbe of Cleveland.com.com. “Very few missed assignments early. We moved him all around, but where is he gonna be best? This is the time to take a look at it. I think his comfort level in his mind is at tackle.”
Corbett is in the running for the team’s starting left tackle job this summer along with Shon Coleman, who is expected to open camp as the starter.
“Shon is a true freak of a man,” G Kevin Zeitler said of Colemon. “He’s that type of guy that can pick up a D-lineman and take him ten yards and throw him. They always say O-linemen should be able to do that, but, there’s only a couple of guys who really can do that play after play.”

- Hickey’s list includes S T.J. Green, DE Margus Hunt, LB Antonio Morrison, OL Le’Raven Clark and DT Hassan Ridgeway.
- John Oesher of Jaguars.com believes the team’s offense will be “significantly better” in 2018 than they were last year.
- Oesher specifically notes that Blake Bortles appears poised to be more consistent and productive and the Jaguars’ offensive line unit should benefit from the addition of Andrew Norwell and another season in OC Nathaniel Hackett’s system.
- Some areas for concern, according to Oesher, include strong-side linebacker and left guard.
- Oesher guesses that rookie LB Leon Jacobs could start for Jacksonville at strong-side linebacker.
