On the heels of their final preseason game, Cleveland Browns GM John Dorsey executed a trade with the Buffalo Bills, acquiring OG Wyatt Teller and their 7th round pick in 2021. In exchange, the Browns are trading a 5th and 6th round pick in 2020 to Buffalo.

Teller was a 5th round pick by the Bills in 2018 and started 7 games as a rookie, although that was at left guard. Although it is early to tell, for Cleveland to make this move, it doesn’t seem to be about depth — this is a trade you make if you’re trying to salvage something on the starting offensive line after not being able to successfully replace Kevin Zeitler. Therefore, one might project Teller to be either the opening day starter, or the starter within the first few weeks, if he needs time to get acclimated to the system.

Here’s some limited tape on Teller from last year (follow the thread here, where there are three clips):

Here is some information from Pro Football Focus, based on Teller’s preseason play:
