The Cleveland Browns have had quite the upheaval on the offensive line. Everyone expected two new starters at the tackle positions, but the center spot was JC Tretter’s domain. Alas, a minor procedure on his knee has already knocked out the veteran pivot for at least a couple of weeks.

Enter rookie Nick Harris. The fifth-round pick from Washington has stepped right into Tretter’s role and impressed everyone. It’s been a very good first three days of camp for Harris.

The most important eyes on Harris are those of coach Kevin Stefanski. When asked about Harris having the right mentality for the job, Stefanski had kind things to say about his rookie center.

“Yeah, I would hope so,” Stefanski responded. “Unfortunately, injuries are part of this game. It is the oldest cliché in the book, but next man up, and I think Nick is ready to roll.”

Harris himself believes it too. In his Zoom conference with reporters, Harris noted,

“I’m just trying to optimize whatever role I have and whatever that may be. I’m just trying to be a role player for this team and whenever my opportunity comes, I’m ready for it.”
