2. Browns trade with Denver
Browns give up fourth pick, get Denver’s pick at No. 5; plus additional later round pick
Broncos get: Browns’ fourth pick
With the Browns likely taking a quarterback at No. 1, there’s some social media group think claiming all Denver has to do is wait until No. 5 for John Elway to draft their future franchise quarterback.
Dorsey needs to make Elway sweat.
How does he do that?
By making Elway believe he’s going to trade the pick to someone else.
If Dorsey convinces he’s talking with Buffalo about a possible trade, that will put the pressure on Denver to act.
Moving down from the fourth to fifth position is more ideal than moving all the way down to No. 12 because an impact player can he bad in the top five. However, Cleveland won’t get Denver’s first-round pick next year in return, unless John Dorsey plays some sort of Jedi-Mind trick on Elway.
What Denver decides to also depend on their draft board.
Watch this situation though, because Cleveland may have more leverage than you think.
