This is the 34th installment of a series of articles covering each player on the Cleveland Browns roster. A new player will be previewed every day from now until the Browns preseason begins. If you enjoy (tolerate) this article, I encourage you to check back each day to read each one. I try to keep these articles short and sweet.

#63- Austin Corbett– G- Nevada

I call him Austin “Powers” Corbett because when it comes to his position on the Browns offensive line he is an “International Man of Mystery”. He sat the bench most of his rookie season, then John Dorsey traded the man in front of him on the depth chart. Personally, I’m just hoping he can be Joel Bitonio’s “Mini Me.” If he’s able to do that, he can walk into his next contract negotiation and demand a hefty pay check.

Corbett didn’t play as many snaps as fans would have liked. He saw action in 11 games (mostly in field goal protection), but only made one start for the Browns last year.

When Dorsey shipped Zeitler out of town this offseason, it was assumed that Corbett would slide right into the starting role. That could still happen, but the coaching staff has been rotating through multiple players at the guard spot opposite of Bitonio. Both Corbett and Kyle Kalis saw time with the first team offensive line during mini camp and rookie, Drew Forbes, could challenge for the starting job as well. The right guard position could be the most contested position battle in Cleveland this summer.

Lol Tyson literally lost every single time he ever fought an elite boxer, and a few times against non elite boxers. But he’s gonna destroy Ali? Not even close? Not a chance. This dude literally asked “who did Ali ever beat?” Lol who the hell did Tyson ever beat??? Tyson fights were wildly entertaining, but he’s super overrated.

Joe Frazier beat Ali and Tyson is the same prototype fighter with more power

people riding Ali act like he never got touched up, he never fought anyone with KO power like Mike.
