2016 NFL Draft Rumor: Cleveland Browns trading up and trading down

Something is happening in Ohio

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Rumors are swirling about AFC North rival, the Cleveland Browns. From trading down in the draft, to trading back up near the end of the first, the Browns are attempting to make moves.

It's tough to judge what is happening, as the draft is full of great talent this year in many areas. A big rumor circling has been the Browns seeking out top draft receiver Laquon Treadwell out of Ole Miss.

A wide receiver for the Browns isn't a bad idea. Trading down, acquiring picks, selecting Treadwell, then trading back up for a QB is a very good move for Cleveland. This could be a big start to the true re-build Cleveland has started. A wide receiver becoming prominent is necessary with Josh Gordon and Travis Benjamin gone.
