The Cleveland Browns were on the clock at No. 4 overall, but they traded with the Buffalo Bills to move down to No. 9 overall. The Bills selected WR Sammy Watkins. It seemed like a somewhat deflating mood in Cleveland, until we found out what Cleveland got in return:
Bills on the clock now, incredible ... Lots of action. Browns get Bills' ninth pick, their 2015 first-rounder and 2015 fourth-rounder.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) May 9, 2014
Browns grade on that trade: A++ .. they still own a top-10 pick this year. No 26 this year. And two 1st rd picks next year. Wow...— Ryan McCrystal (@Ryan_McCrystal) May 9, 2014
YES! The Browns will now have two first-rounders in 2015, and already an extra fourth-rounder in 2015. On top of that, they only had to move down five spots in this year's draft, where they can still get a very high quality player. And they still have No. 26 overall.
