The Cleveland Browns signed left tackle Greg Robinson to a one-year deal recently, but that didn’t stop them from meeting with Andre Dillard at the combine
Just before the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine got started, the Cleveland Browns made a move to re-sign left tackle Greg Robinson. The starter for the final eight games of the 2018 season, Robinson seems to be set to cover the blind side for at least one more year.
It seems, however, that this signing hasn’t stopped the Browns from looking for a long-term solution. Now at the combine, they’re reportedly looking at players to add to their offensive line.
According to Jordan Reid from Cover 1, Washington State offensive tackle Andre Dillard had a meeting with the Browns front office.
Dillard is a name that has been connected to the Browns before. He was mocked to them by NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah, who sees Cleveland selecting him at No. 17. At first, this seemed a little surprising given the lack of buzz around Dillard.
However, he started getting more press once he showed up at the Senior Bowl and had some great practices and played well in the game.
As for the Browns, the one-year deal given to Robinson suggests they want him to prove himself again this year. Adding some depth couldn’t hurt as it would push Robinson, but could help in other ways.
Right tackle Chris Hubbard’s play was up and down during his first season with the Browns, so adding more offensive tackles could end up helping on that side as well.
The Browns finally have their franchise quarterback in Baker Mayfield and it seems they want to do all they can to keep him comfortable in the pocket.
