Cleveland Browns – Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss
Ready or not, the Cleveland Browns offense looks…promising?
After a couple coaching moves and more faith in their rookie class, the Cleveland Browns look to be on their way to one of the better offenses in the AFC. Led by quarterback Baker Mayfield and running back Nick Chubb, the Cleveland is doing all the right things on offense to trend in the right direction for the long term.
As I’ve discussed before, the Browns will need to protect Mayfield at all costs and one of the ways to do that is by shoring up the offensive line. Desmond Harrison is more of a project-type player than long-term starter at left tackle, which is why Mississippi’s Greg Little would make for an excellent fit.
Little (6-foot-5, 325 pounds) was one of the most sought-after high school players in his class back in 2016 before signing with Mississippi. He became a starter early in his freshman season and has served as the team’s starting left tackle ever since.
In terms of athleticism, Little is one of the most impressive prospects at the position, especially for his size and length. There are still some issues to work out from a technique standpoint, particularly his footwork, but Little has all of the physical tools and experience starting at tackle in the SEC to believe he has yet to reach his true potential. If the Browns are patient with some early-career bumps, they very well may have landed their franchise quarterback, running back, and left tackle all in the span of two years.
