Cleveland Browns News: Where Austin Corbett excels
The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including a look at one area where offensive lineman Austin Corbett excels
The Cleveland Browns right guard position is wide open, even though they didn’t want it to be. When they traded Kevin Zeitler away, the hope was that Austin Corbett would step in and be the starter.
Unfortunately, he hasn’t been able to take advantage of that open spot to this point as he’s been playing behind Kyle Kalis. Even with that being the case, there’s a part of his game where he excels which could help him as he aims to become a starter in his second season.
That story and more can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.

Austin Corbett: One area where he excels could help him become the Cleveland Browns’ right guard — Jake Burns, Cleveland.com
"“Corbett has a long way to go with his pass block anchor and his ability to win in the run game, but his ability to pull for some success is one way the Browns will use him.The Freddie Kitchens offense used the play-action scheme with pulling guards for pass protection often the last half of 2018, and the Browns will want to return to this scheme this year.”"
The right guard position is wide open for the Browns at this point and for Corbett, his ability to pull could help him as he aims for that job. Still, he has a long way to go if he wants to be the starter.
Odell Beckham Jr. leads way for Browns in Madden NFL 20 ratings release — Nick Shook, ClevelandBrowns.com
"“Beckham owns an overall mark of 96, powered by a maximum spectacular catch rating of 99, 96 for short and medium route running, 94 for speed and acceleration and an eye-popping 98 for agility. If you’ve ever seen Beckham’s footwork in person, you’d agree with that last mark.”"
Some of the other ratings were a bit confusing but OBJ seemed to be rated correctly.
Making the Leap: 24 reasons why Browns’ Nick Chubb will shine — Gregg Rosenthal, NFL.com
"“The scouting report on Chubb was all wrong. Chubb was supposed to be a grinder. The pre-draft chatter on the Georgia product stated that he’d get 4 yards if 4 yards were blocked for him. But the combination of his vaunted power and ability to make people miss allowed him to lead all running backs in Pro Football Focus’ “elusiveness” rating in 2018. Free defenders struggled to take him down in the open field and his sharp cuts created space to run. The Browns’ run-blocking last season was decidedly average, so Chubb’s success was independent of that.”"
Honestly, it made little sense when hearing the people who were down on Chubb. He was a star at Georgia and should continue to be in the NFL.
‘First Take’ bashes Odell Beckham, Jr.’s character
In what might possibly be the worst take of all-time, former NBA player Ryan Hollins said on ESPN’s ‘First Take’ that Odell Beckham, Jr. is not a model citizen. When asked why, he said because he hadn’t won anything. Seriously.
Colin Cowherd says Cleveland Browns will ‘crash hard’ in playoffs
Once again, Colin Cowherd is back at it and bashing the Browns. This time, he started out by making fun of David Njoku for being excited about the addition of OBJ. From there he jabbed at the coach and the quarterback before saying they will ‘crash hard’ in the playoffs. Basically, just a typical day on ‘The Herd’.
