AFC Notes: Browns, Texans, Titans



An NFL executive tells Terry Pluto of that he finds it hard to believe the Browns will open the 2018 season with Shon Coleman as their starting left tackle.

I haven’t heard anything, but I do know John well enough to find it hard to believe he’ll go with Coleman,” the executive tells Pluto.

The executive added that he could see the Browns trading out of the No. 4 overall pick and taking a left tackle prospect later on in round one.

Pluto lists Notre Dame’s Mike McGlinchey, UCLA’s Kolton Miller, Oregon’s Tyrell Crosby, Texas’ Connor Williams and Oklahoma’s Orlando Brown as the top offensive tackle prospects in this year’s draft worth considering.



  • Jim Wyatt of the Titans’ official site writes that while new Titans DC Dan Peas has traditionally run a 3-4 defensive scheme, HC Mike Vrabel mentioned earlier this offseason that the defense will have “front multiplicity and coverage consistency.”
  • According to Wyatt, it sounds like Titans RT Jack Conklin could return from his knee injury “at some point” during training camp, but it remains to be seen when he’ll be ready to return to the starting lineup.
  • Wyatt does not think the Titans will draft a backup quarterback during the 2018 NFL Draft, considering that they just signed veteran QB Blaine Gabbert to a two-year contract.
