3. Browns trade with Sehawks
Browns get pick No. 18
Seahawks get pick Nos. 33 and 64
With nine draft picks, the Browns don’t actually need nine players. The past two years have been spent collecting bodies through the draft.
Now, the emphasis needs to be on adding players who are going to be talked about as All-Pros for the next decade.
That means Cleveland needs to better its changes at getting a stud by moving up from the second round.
With the first and third picks of the second round at their disposal, the Browns could easily move back into the first round, just as Sashi Brown did last year.
After selecting Myles Garrett with the first overall pick, Brown ultimately traded up from the second round to end the first night of the draft with three selections.
This trade should be viewed as the most desirable scenario because in it, Cleveland would take players with the first and fourth selections.
Then, Dorsey wouldn’t just jump back into the first round, he’d launch the Browns into the low teens, where someone like Mike McGlinchey can help fortify the line.
