Browns' recent moves make strong indication towards 1st overall pick in draft

Browns' recent moves make strong indication towards 1st overall pick in draft

The first big announcement was the Browns trade with the Miami Dolphins for recently franchised-tagged wide receiver Jarvis Landry.

After 16 straight losses on the field, victory.

Not long after that deal they sent a third-round pick (the 65th-overall selection in 2018) to the Buffalo Bills for quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who very well could be the team's starter in 2018. We also tend to overvalue draft picks, getting caught up in the hypothetical of what it might become.

The Packers are getting a 2016 second-round pick who was thought to be the No. 1 pick a year ago before the combine started.

The team informed Sherman early Friday he would be released, and he confirmed the decision in a text message to The Associated Press.

One thing's for sure though, Dorsey isn't done trying to make a splash. Here's to John Dorsey tonight! NFL Network's Ian Rapaport is reporting that the Packers will receive Browns starting quarterback Deshaun Kizer in the trade.

On Friday March 10, the Cleveland Browns made 3 trades, which was unexpected because the team had only made 4 trades from March 9, 2017 to March 8, 2018. He experienced much of those struggles in 2017 despite helping lead the Bills to their first playoff appearance in almost two decades.

Tampa Bay also re-signed backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who appeared in six games last season. Head coach Hue Jackson obviously likes Taylor enough to be able to let Cleveland's soon-to-be-drafted new quarterback learn from him. From what I hear, negotiations are progressing and there's a chance they could get something done. The deal could still fall through, as we saw past year, but a wide receiver corps of Landry, Gordon, and Coleman is a nice start. Adding him would do wonders to the Browns offense. In particular, it would allow Jabrill Peppers to play a more natural role at strong safety after spending his rookie season playing out of position out of necessity.

"Y'all better understand s- about to get SERIOUS. ON MY MAMA", Landry posted on Twitter shortly after news that he was Cleveland bound broke.

Who do you want to see the Cleveland Browns take at number one? That's second among National Football League receivers behind Antonio Brown's $17 million.

Randall was drafted as a safety out of Arizona State, though scouts projected he'd fit better at corner in the NFL. The Browns have had future Hall of Famer Joe Thomas for many years, but prior to last season, they spent a lot of money upgrading the unit as a whole, adding Kevin Zeitler and J.C. Tretter. He had some injuries issues - and a visible spat with the team - in 2017, but finished the year as Green Bay's best cover cornerback.
