I honestly don't think anyone besides the Browns' front office has any idea what the Browns' ideas for the draft are. Since Heckert seems to re-iterate that he wants to build through the draft, I'm thinking that with 2 first round pickes the Heckert will try to trade down off one of them to stock up on picks. Here are a few trade scenarios I was thinking could happen. If you would like to speculate feel free to post it in the comments. Maybe one of us will get lucky and get one right.
Denver trades 25, 57, 107 and 1st and 3rd next year for #4 and Ben Watson , to draft Trent Richardson
This gives Peyton a target at TE and an actual RB. Still leaves Denver with 6 total picks in this years draft.
Miami trades 8, 73, and next year 3rd or 4th for #4 to take Ryan Tannehill
Miami missed out on RG3, Peyton Manning, and Matt Flynn, plus have a new head coach. A lot of people seem high on Tannehill, but I don't think the Browns think any higher of him than Colt.
Seattle trades 12, 43, and 75 for #4 to take Justin Blackmon
Seattle might be looking for their #1 receiver to compliment the addition of Matt Flynn.
St. Louis trades 6 and 39 to for #4 to take Justin Blackmon
Same reason as Seattle, to find Bradford his #1 receiver.
St. Louis trades 33 and next years 1st rounder for #22 to take Stephen Hill
In this scenario, the Browns probably take Blackmon at #4 meaning the Rams missed out on him. Still looking for a big time receiver, the Rams trade up for the big fast target in Stephen Hill. Browns get the 1st pick of the second round and set themselves up for being able to get Barkley next year.
