Browns trade out of last pick of the draft, prepare for UDFAs

The Cleveland Browns decided to trade out of the 7th round of the 2014 NFL Draft.  Like they did last year with Joe Banner running the show with Ray Farmer there, they opted to trade a pick this year for a pick a round earlier next year, which is the standard rate.  The Browns did it in the fourth and fifth round last year for a third and fourth round pick.  Now, they do it with the seventh round pick.

The Baltimore Ravens made the deal to move in and took Michael Campanaro, a talented slot receiver from Wake Forest.  He is a terrific route runner with great hands in the mold of Wes Welker and Julian Edelman type receivers.

The Browns now have a 1st, 4th, and 6th in 2015 NFL Draft in addition to the standard 7 picks they will get to this point.  Now, the Browns focus all of their attention to trying to get undrafted free agents.  They have likely been on the phones most of the day talking to players about potential deals if they are not drafted.  Wide receivers may look at Cleveland as a popular spot because they have a chance to come in and win a roster spot.
