Browns

Browns executive VP Sashi Brown mentioned that he’s received calls from teams inquiring about their No. 2 overall pick. Brown added that interest is likely to heat up over the next week.

“There has been some interest in the pick, but there always typically is toward the top of the draft, just teams feeling each other out,” Brown said Wednesday on SiriusXMNFL radio, via Cleveland.com. “I think in earnest as you get closer to the draft, probably in about a week’s time we’ll start getting real calls with more substantive traction to them.

Brown added that there should be enough interest in the quarterback prospects, as well as some others, for there to be an opportunity to move back if they feel that’s best.

Whenever you have quarterbacks in play that teams feel like can start for a long time for them or I think the top of the draft is reasonably heavy at pretty important positions whether it’s pass rusher with (Joey) Bosa, (Laremy) Tunsil at left tackle, DeForest Buckner inside who’s a rare talent and (linebacker) Myles Jack and others, (offensive tackle) Ronnie Stanley,” Brown said. “…There’s going to be some interest in those players and my anticipation is we along with Tennessee and the other teams in the top five or six will have a number of teams call just to inquire if nothing else what we might take for those teams that have an opportunity to pick one of those players.

  • In regards to a potential trade involving Pro Bowl LT Joe Thomas, Tony Grossi says there’s “nothing brewing” right now.

Jets

  • Tony Pauline of WalterFootball.com reports that there’s still a chance that the Jets could still draft an offensive tackle in round, even after they traded for Ryan Clady last week.
  • The Jets are hosting Indiana OT Jason Spriggs on Thursday, and is considered by some teams to be the second best offensive tackle behind Laremy Tunsil.
  • According to Pauline, the Jets are “very high” on tackle Brent Qvale, who could eventually replace RT Breno Giacomini down the road.

Titans

  • Tony Pauline confirms reports that the Titans would consider trading down from No. 1 overall and selecting either Notre Dame OT Ronnie Stanley Michigan State OT Jack Conklin.
