1. Teller excels at right guard
Perhaps one of the biggest surprises in the NFL is the performance of right guard Wyatt Teller. Remember folks, before the season many thought (me included) that Drew Forbes would win this job before opting out of the season. Under the leadership of Callahan, Teller has been nothing short of stellar.
In 2019, past general manager, John Dorsey traded the Buffalo Bills a fifth and sixth-round pick for Teller and a seventh-rounder. Teller took over mid-season and ended up starting the last nine games of the season. While he was a decent starter in 2019, one offseason and a new offensive scheme have turned him into an All-Pro.
Teller’s athleticism and mean streak is perfect for the Stefanski system, and he has shown the strength to withstand the bull rush during pass protection as well. Having a guy like Teller is perfect when you must face Cam Hayward twice a year in the division.
I mentioned it before, but it must be said again. Coming into the season many thought right guard would be the biggest weakness on the offensive line. While the entire squad has been tremendous, you can’t name a guy who has performed better.
The Browns have a ton of young talent, but new general manager Andrew Berry may consider locking up Teller before his market value goes through the roof. Expect this tremendous performance to continue as the offensive line will make Baker Mayfield look like a new quarterback for the rest of the season.
