TwitterFacebookRedditPocketFlipboardEmailThe Browns have three picks in the fifth-round http://www.brownsfanshop.com/Sione-Takitaki-Jersey , and with their second selection at number 155 they may want to take a flyer on Trey Pipkins of Sioux Falls for much-needed offensive tackle depth. Currently, he is ranked as the 13th best OT prospect. You may have seen him at the scouting combine in March where he was only one of 17 small-school players invited. There aren’t any questions that he can handle an OT job in the NFL and would initially make a great backup at either tackle position. Pipkins has practiced and played at both LT and RT. He’s long and strong, and also shows no sign of excess body fat. He controls defenders with long arms, and shows very good functional strength. He also is a natural knee bender who can perform a solid job not getting too tall in his stance.Specifics: College: Sioux Falls (SD)Height: 6’7”Weight: 307 pounds 40-time: 5.12Career Games: 41 Positives: Great strength and pushCan play guard or tackleLong wingspanPut together well with size and strengthBlocks well off the edgeSelected for East-West Shrine GameGood size and athleticismNegatives: Division II playerSlow-footed at timesNeeds run blocking improvementImprove his conditioningHas not seen high-level defensive linemenImprove stopping inside rushesExpert Draft Site Analysis walterfootball.com<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="xsyHoQ">With the Browns needing depth on the offensive line, what are your thoughts about taking Pipkins? What if Baker Mayfield had to miss two games each year?" />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesDawgs EDTOver the years, we’ve heard plenty of talk about whether the NFL would consider shortening the preseason in favor of extending the regular season to 18 games. Today,some more traction was made on that, as according to the Wall Street Journal, the NFL has proposed an 18-game regular season schedule Greedy Williams Jersey , but capping the number of games per player to 16 games.Personally, I’m more than happy with sticking with the 16-game format, but let’s play devil’s advocate. On the surface, it is a bit intriguing because it gives teams more incentive to acquire depth, especially at the quarterback position. One could argue that the preseason becomes more important too, because you are preparing your backups to legitimately start games at some point during the season. There would be a whole new level of strategy for coaches to implement related to personnel. Do you start your backup quarterback at the beginning of the year? End of the year? Middle? Do you start him with the starters, or throw all the backups in for that day?Pro Football Talk brings up a great point, though (and funny enough, they use the Browns as their example):Whether you’re an Arizona fan or a Cleveland fan who flew out to Arizona to see the game https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Howard-Wilson-Jersey , wouldn’t you be pretty pissed to find out that Baker Mayfield was a healthy scratch? The whole 18/16 scenario seems like a way for the NFL to try to get around having to pay players for two extra games, while citing safety reasons for why players’ workloads shouldn’t increase by two games.If I had to vote on the idea, I think it deserves some thought, but I would need a lot more convincing before to ever say “yes.” What do you think, Browns fans? Would you be intrigued by an 18-game season, if players could only play a max of 16 games?
