ESPN’s Adam Schefter mentioned during an interview with 97.5 ESPN that Eagles are trying to close the deal with the Browns for the No. 2 overall pick.
In fact, Schefter says that the Eagles would like to have a deal completed today, but the Browns apparently have other plans.
“If it were up the Eagles, the deal would be done today,” Schefter said, via the Newark Star-Ledger. “but Cleveland is taking their time and being methodical, maybe another team ponies up”
Last night, Alex Marvez reports that if the Browns and Eagles reach an agreement on a trade that would send the No. 2 overall pick to Philadelphia, it would include the two teams swapping first-round picks in 2016 with the Eagles sending the Browns two third-round picks this year, their first-rounder in 2017 and their 2017 third-round selection.
However, Schefter mentioned during the interview that he believes the price to move up to No. 2 would be less than that.
As of now, the consensus is that Jared Goff is likely headed to the Rams at No. 1 overall, which means the Eagles could come away with Carson Wentz at the No. 2 spot.
Reports have said that the Browns were “actively shopping” their No. 2 pick overall pick around the league, so there’s still a chance another team could get involved such as the 49ers.
