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.
The #Browns have spoken with teams about moving back in the 1st round… and moving up into the 1st round from the 2nd. For a QB?— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 28, 2016
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.
If the #Browns move back from No. 8, the thinking is they take a top WR. #OleMiss WR Laquon Treadwell is a player they'll look hard at.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 28, 2016
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.
