Report: Cleveland Browns unwilling to give up 1st rounder in 2016
With the NFL Draft hours away trade talks are heating up, especially for the number two overall selection, currently held by the Titans. The Cleveland Browns are reportedly pushing hard to trade-up either in an attempt to grab Marcus Mariota, or to do some type of miracle made-for-Hollywood movie trade with the Eagles to get Sam Bradford and reunite Kelly with his QB prodigy.
Whatever scenarios are playing out behind closed doors, reports from Mary Kat Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer the Browns are unwilling to give up next year’s first round pick. The Browns have the 12th and 19th selection and are smart not to give up next year’s first as well. That mortgages a team’s future too much in one player. Sammy Watkins is that player in Buffalo.
I would stand pat if I were in GM Ray Farmer’s shoes, build talent around that team that managed to win seven games as a member of the in the difficult AFC North. Yes, you have the Manziel issues, but they can’t move up for a quarterback with questions.
Stay tuned tonight to find out….What will the Browns do? Comment below…
