In a blockbuster trade that takes a standout left tackle from Baltimore to Kansas City, we break down what the Ravens gave up in Orlando Brown and what they might get in return!

NFL Draft 2021: UPDATED order of picks after Chiefs-Ravens Orlando Brown  trade - nj.com

We saw the Kansas City Chiefs blow up their offensive line and they have all but done an entire makeover of the unit that was their downfall in the Super Bowl. They signed Joe Thuney from New England to slide in at left guard, signed recently unretired Kyle Long to step in at right guard and will be slotting in Austin Blythe at centre. With the recent trade for Orlando Brown who will be coming in as a potential all-pro left tackle, they have just Mike Remmers coming back from last year to man the right tackle spot.

Orlando Brown started last season as the Baltimore Ravens right tackle before their all-pro left tackle Ronnie Stanley was out for the season due to injury. It’s not often you see a standout tackle like Orlando Brown traded during his rookie contract but the fact that the Ravens have Stanley coming back and Brown didn’t want to go back to right side created a unique opportunity for someone to steal him away. But what did it cost the Chiefs to acquire him? Their 2021 first-round pick (No. 31 overall), a third-rounder (94), fourth-round pick (136) and a 2022 fifth-round selection in exchange for Brown and a 2021 second-round pick (No. 58) and a 2022 sixth-round pick

All in all, the Chiefs essentially traded away the equivalent value of second-round pick, given what they got back in return and that sounds about fair. In a years time the Chiefs will either have to franchise tag Brown or give him a monster deal, likely valued at over $20 million per year which will be a tall task given KC have just given Joe Thuney a top of the market contract.

With the Ravens acquiring a second first-round pick, it gives them a chance to address some needs earlier on. They will undoubtedly pick up a receiver with one of these picks and then they could restock their offensive line or beef up their defensive front with the other. They have been one of the better drafting teams over the last 20 years so you’d have to think one of them turns out to be solid starter to make up for the loss of a premier offensive lineman in Orlando Brown.
