This is an interesting trade as the Chiefs had to do something as their lack of tackles cost them the Super Bowl. This is a win now move for them, and the Ravens weren't afraid to make this move even though the Chiefs are in their way (and everyone else in the AFC including us) to the Super Bowl.

Chiefs acquired OT Orlando Brown, the No. 58 pick in the 2021 draft, and a 2022 sixth-round selection from the Ravens in exchange for the No. 31 overall pick, a 2021 third- and fourth-round pick, and a fifth-round selection in the 2022 draft.https://www.nbcsports.com/edge/football ... ando-brown
Brown, a Pro Bowl player for Baltimore at both its left and right tackle spots, arrives as Kansas City's projected left tackle on the final year of his contract. It's another move that revamps and fortifies the team's offensive line ahead of the 2021 season, adding the 24-year-old alongside Joe Thuney, Kyle Long, and Austin Blythe. With Baltimore now holding the No. 27 and 31 picks on Thursday night, bettors should also expect an additional wide receiver to fall at the end of the first round. The Chiefs meanwhile will work towards extending Brown as he plays out the final year of his deal.
