We've not been connected to any D-Line guys, like Hankins, Poe, or Logan. Allen must have passed his team physicals, because he's got second interviews with us AND Jax too. Coincidence?
Defensive line could be where our first pick is dedicated to. Either Allen or Solomon Thomas. I wouldn't be against either. Although I think I'd prefer Thomas, to be honest.
What would you take to swap spots with Jax to give them their choice? The famous draft chart says #4 + 2nd = #3 + 4th + 5th, but I can't see that happening. The other "Browns" chart shows the difference in value to be less than any draft pick. I'd think a 4th, maybe a 3rd at most.
I hate saying it, but I just don't think we're going to have lots of leverage. I keep trying to think of scenarios where we CAN trade back......
Maybe the Jets want to pass the Jags to get Fournette? Maybe the Panthers at 8(even if its not their MO), want to pass them up for Fournette too?
Maybe Cleveland thinks they need to move from 12 to 3 to grab Trubisky? Maybe the Cardinals think the same at 13?
At any rate, trading with Cleveland would be awesome. Even if the chart prices are a bit high foir THIS draft.(think it'll be depressed with lots of talent in same value range)
Options with Cleveland, moving down to 12....33, 52, 65, 108, 142, their own picks next year, Eagles and Texans 2nds, Panthers and Patriots 4ths. That's their group of picks in the top 4 rounds over the next 2 years.
If you take a bit off full value, due to lack of interest in teams moving up....
Would you trade 3 for 12, 33, and 65? Or for 12, 52, 108, and the Browns 2nd and 3rd next year? Lots of other ways to get into the right range using their picks too. How about not even getting 12 lol? The Browns could send 33, 52, their 1st and 2nd next year, and one of the Texans or Eagles 2nds....
