In the last few days there have been a number rumors about teams that are considering moving down in the upcoming draft which would seem to make sense for specific teams. The latest team that could be looking to trade out of their current position is the Cleveland Browns.
“I think we’re open to it this year,” Holmgren said at the NFL owners meetings. “We have a couple of [needs] I’d like to deal with, specifically. We’d move down for the same reason you’d always trade back.”
Cleveland is in a decent position because they have the No. 6 pick which could be coveted by other teams that are interested in specific players which allow the Browns to trade down a few picks and receive and extra selection either in the upcoming draft or a future pick. Many draft experts have the Browns taking either a wide receiver like A.J. Green or a defensive lineman such as Nick Fairley but there should be options at both positions around pick No. 10.
Teams that could be looking to trade up would include: the San Francisco 49ers, Tennessee Titans, Minnesota Vikings and Washington Redskins.
