NBC Sports: Ravens trade Orlando Brown Jr. to Chiefs, get 2021 first-rounder.
https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/04/23/ravens-trade-orlando-brown-jr-to-chiefs-get-2021-first-rounder/

 

Baltimore will get the Chiefs’ first-, third-, and fourth-round picks this year and a 2022 fifth-rounder while sending their 2021 second-round pick and a 2022 sixth-rounder to Kansas City. They now have the 27th and 31st picks of the draft and the Chiefs will pick 58th and 63rd next week

 

Not bad, basically moving up from round two to the 31st, getting an extra 3rd & 4th round pick. Not sure they could get much better in this climate

I like the trade...gives them 2 first rounders and they can use them to trade up or back along with the other ammo. Probably trade the 31st into the 2nd for a pick there and maybe get another 3rd. I wouldn't draft an OT in the first round.

I understand why this had to be done yet I will really miss Zeus Jr. The team will too. He was a lightning rod on that O line and played at a high level. He is Ravens family.

And to the Chiefs! The Ravens really helped them out and hurt themselves when they play KC. He stands a very good chance of getting a SB ring there.

The Ravens got great value for him. They turned a 3rd round pick into gold.

Chiefs still have to sign him.................

For this trade to work, the Chiefs need to sign Brown for the long term -- he's headed into the final year of his contract -- but if they were able to load a hefty long-term offer for Williams before he declined, they'll have the necessary money for Brown...Orlando Brown completes Kansas City Chiefs' transformation of offensive line since Super Bowl - Kansas City Chiefs- ESPN

They have to hit Cap Jail someday. Plus they lose a lot of drat capital.

While this trade fills a critical need for Kansas City, Brown is heading into the final year of his rookie contract and will be looking for an extension soon. With no deal currently struck at the time of the trade, the club does run the risk of losing the player after one season or needing to place the franchise tag on him next offseason. The price to acquire him combined with the lack of an extension leaving his future a bit murky at the moment....Orlando Brown trade grades: Chiefs bolster O-line for Patrick Mahomes while Ravens collect major draft assets - CBSSports.com

Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens rid themselves of a player who wanted out and got a strong return for him, so there's not a lot to complain about here. While Brown played well at left tackle in 2020, the club is getting Pro Bowl tackle Ronnie Stanley back healthy for next season so there shouldn't be much of a talent drop-off at that position. Meanwhile, veteran Alejandro Villanueva is expected to replace Brown at right tackle so the Ravens have all of their bases covered in his departure. That said, the club will likely need to look for a long-term solution at right tackle as Villanueva will be 33 this season. 

The Ravens now have two first-round assets (No. 27 and No. 31) to move around the board if they so choose and are just one of only four teams that currently own multiple first-round picks in this year's draft. The big need for the club is to add another talented receiver into the mix for Lamar Jackson. If one starts to fall into the mid-to-late teens, Baltimore now has plenty of ammo to move up the board to go get him. Of course, they could also simply elect to take players with each of their first-rounders and address more than one position of need (receiver and edge rusher). 

What this trade did for Baltimore is turn an expendable asset into draft flexibility, which is exactly what clubs want this time of year. The addition of that first along with multiple selections on Day 2 and Day 3 completely opens up the board for Baltimore...... Orlando Brown trade grades: Chiefs bolster O-line for Patrick Mahomes while Ravens collect major draft assets - CBSSports.com

Grade: A+

 Eric stayed true and won. No Cap jail for the Ravens so they can stay competitive. Lamar and Andrews are coming due.
