Fisher said that the Browns are a “potential trade partner” next month, not ruling out a swap between the No. 4 and No. 6 picks.
It’s speculated that the Rams are high on wide receiver Justin Blackmon, while the Browns have not shown a particularly strong interest in anyone, meaning the team is considering a number of players with their first pick. It’s also worth mentioning that the Browns are inviting quarterback Ryan Tannehill to Cleveland for a workout before the draft, along with 29 other prospects.
A trade down for the Browns could be a wise move, especially if it only drops them down a few spots. With 13 picks already acquired, trading down, remaining in the top ten picks, and adding even more draft picks to the arsenal is not bad for a team that’s rebuilding.
What will be hard, though, for Browns fans is to see a player like Blackmon selected by the Rams and play well. It’s no secret that the Browns have major problems at wide receiver, and it will be a tough pill to swallow to watch the Browns pass on a productive one for the second year in a row.
