The Browns just agreed to trade the No. 2 overall pick to the Eagles return for pick No. 8, 77, and 100 overall in this year’s draft, and a 2017 first-round pick and a second-round pick in 2018.
It was clear that the Browns were looking to move out of the No. 2 spot, given that they reportedly weren’t all that high on either of the top two quarterbacks — Jared Goff and Carson Wentz — in this year’s draft class.
However, it appears as though there’s a chance that the Browns could look to trade out of the No. 8 spot and continue to accumulate future draft picks.
Matt Miller of B/R was told by a rival GM after the trade was announced this afternoon that “Cleveland isn’t done trading.” The GM seems to think the Browns will try and package their picks for future selections.
Dane Brugler also mentions that the Browns could still trade out of the No. 8 spot and look to control more of the 2017 draft.
As of now, the Browns have 12 picks to work with in the 2016 draft, which is currently tied with the 49ers for the most selections. This includes six picks in the top 100 overall, so they could still put together a strong draft class in 2016, considering that it’s believed to be a fairly deep class.
