Cleveland Browns Trade Down From No. 6 With Atlanta Falcons

Wow, this could be highway robbery if the Cleveland Browns are able to take advantage of the trade they just made with the Atlanta Falcons. The Browns held the No. 6 overall pick, but when they were on the clock, DT Marcell Dareus, CB Patrick Peterson, and WR A.J. Green were off the board. The Falcons wanted WR Julio Jones, so they caved in and gave up a lot of draft picks to the Browns. Here are the details of the trade:

Atlanta Falcons Acquire:

  • First Round: No. 6 overall pick in 2011

Cleveland Browns Acquire:

  • First Round: No. 27 overall pick in 2011
  • Second Round: No. 59 overall pick in 2011
  • Fourth Round: No. 124 overall pick in 2011
  • First Round: Falcons' first round pick in 2012
  • Fourth Round: Falcons' fourth round pick in 2012

The Browns now have a lot of ammunition to either trade back up into the first round, move closer up in the second or third rounds, or stay put and just draft the best players available with the picks they currently have.
