Baltimore Ravens: 6 trade destinations and scenarios for Orlando Brown Jr.
Similarly to the Giants, the Vikings have longed for good tackle play for quite some time. Brian O’Neil is a stud at right tackle, but left tackle remains a need. For an offense that is as explosive as any other in the league, it would be nice to have that bookend guy opposite O’Neil.
Trading for Orlando Brown Jr. allows Minnesota to go BPA in round one rather than worry about taking an offensive tackle who doesn’t match the value of the pick. The downside is both Brown Jr. and O’Neil face Free Agency following the 2021 season, but the duo would be worth extending if it can find the cap space.
Without a second-round pick, the Vikings will need to get creative in a trade package for Orlando Brown Jr.’s services. A package of picks makes the most sense, with its third-round pick being the prize of the deal. A fourth and a future seventh could make this deal a little better.
Minnesota will be happy to get Brown Jr., obviously, but in this scenario, Baltimore is kind enough to return to the Vikings a pick as well. This ends up being an exchange of future day three picks and a third and fourth-round pick for a two-time Pro Bowler.
