3. Austin Corbett, Interior Offensive Line
Nick Chubb ended up being well worth the 35th pick that John Dorsey and the Cleveland Browns spent on acquiring him, but he wasn’t their first pick in the second round. Cleveland also owned the No. 33 selection, which kicked off Round 2.
Dorsey had his sights set on improving the offensive line with this pick and with Joe Thomas retiring that offseason, it made plenty of sense to do so. But then when their pick was announced, plenty of heads were scratched because Dorsey took Austin Corbett — who was a left tackle at Nevada but expected to kick inside in the NFL.
That meant he wasn’t the player to take over for future Hall of Famer Joe Thomas, but he still could have been a solid piece of the Browns O-line. After a season on the bench, he got his shot in 2019 when Dorsey traded away Kevin Zeitler for Olivier Vernon.
Corbett was one of the players fighting to replace Zeitler but he never had a chance. After losing to Eric Kush, he was traded to the Los Angeles Rams for a fifth-round pick in 2021.
Since heading to L.A., Corbett has found his groove. He started seven of eight games in 2019 and then started all 16 for them in 2020. He’s become a solid player for them and that makes it even more difficult for Browns fans who wish he would have worked out.
