Browns have an issue at right tackle

SB Nation


Article Summary:

Left tackle Jedrick Wills Jr. went down in Week 1 with an ankle injury that subsequently forced him to leave the game in Weeks 2 through 4, and sidelined him for Weeks 5 and 6.

The situation has been even more troublesome on the right side, as Jack Conklin went out with an injury in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Chargers, returned in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers only to suffer a dislocated elbow, and made it back for the Week 12 game against the Baltimore Ravens only to be lost for the year with a torn patellar tendon.

While Wills did play right tackle in college at Alabama, he has spent every second of his time with the Browns playing on the left side, so moving him to the opposite side of the line and then hoping that a player that has struggled at right tackle will suddenly be able to play left tackle not only weakens both positions, but could be grounds for someone on the coaching staff to be fired.

Forristall might not be much of a threat in the passing game, he has never played in a regular-season NFL game let alone catch a pass, but at 6-foot-5 and 245-pounds he could be a player that parks himself next to the right tackle and helps out with chipping and blocking whoever the Ravens line up across from them.
