Cleveland Browns News: Trading up in 2019 NFL Draft is on the table
The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news stories you need to know, including the idea about them trading up in the 2019 NFL Draft
With no NFL games being played right now, but free agency and the draft still not here, we have officially entered speculation season. Right now, the only thing to do is guess what the Cleveland Browns and the rest of the league will do once they’re able to start making moves.
Most speculation centers around what the Browns will do with the No. 17 overall pick. But what if they didn’t pick there? What if the Browns decided to go ahead and make a move up in the draft to add an impact player?
That idea was floated to Mary Kay Cabot from Cleveland.com who says that general manager John Dorsey would be open to moving up — or even down — in the upcoming draft.
That story and more can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.

Will the Browns trade up into the top 10 in the NFL draft? Hey, Mary Kay! — Mary Kay Cabot, cleveland.com
"“I asked John Dorsey about that at the Senior Bowl last month and he said he would be open to trading up or down with that No. 17 pick, depending on how the draft shakes out. The Browns aren’t hard-pressed to draft any particular position, so they can let the draft fall to them. They have 11 picks, so they can package some if there’s a great player in the top 10 they really want.”"
I absolutely love the idea of trading up. John Dorsey has overhauled the roster and the results were felt in just one offseason. Making a big move to get another top-10 talent in the coming draft would only speed along the turnaround that he has begun.
Would trading for Donald Penn be wise?
One position of need for Cleveland is offensive tackle and going for a veteran like Donald Penn could be a decent bridge option. Dan Justik looks at that idea and gives his thoughts on the idea.
Mentoring Baker Mayfield: Do the Cleveland Browns need a QB Mentor?
Drew Stanton spent 2018 in a mentor role and served more as a quarterback coach for Baker Mayfield than a backup QB. Looking ahead to 2019, Elliot Kennel wonders if that’s really a need any longer.
Cleveland Browns: 3 Moves team needs to make in 2019 offseason — Caleb Pierson, NFL Spin Zone
"“With a new head coach, a franchise quarterback, and momentum from this past season, the Browns could be a team that no one wants to face in 2019. Here are three moves the Cleveland Browns need to make this offseason to get back to the top of the AFC North.”"
Pierson looks at the usual spots for the Browns with wide receiver, defensive tackle topping the list. He does also dive into the need for another cornerback, but I believe people are sleeping on Terrance Mitchell who can be the starter opposite Denzel Ward.
