Waiting For Next Year:
A rumor sourced to Tony Grossi all over Twitter indicates that the trade winds are blowing as we move closer to the draft. The meat of the rumor has the Eagles looking to move up to #4 presumably to take Ryan Tannehill. The Eagles have the 15th pick in the draft and also numbers 46 and 51 in the second round.
For the Browns, it takes them out of the running for guys like Richardson, Blackmon and of course, Tannehill. If it happens the Browns will have five picks in the top 51 which could allow them to fill more spots. It also gives them the bullets to trade back into the first round if they choose to go that route.
The trade being rumored does work out on the cliche, but presumably antiquated “NFL Draft Pick Value Chart.” Hopefully if the Browns do trade down they will pit the Eagles and a team like maybe the Dolphins against each other to really maximize the haul.

LET'S MAKE A DEAL
The Browns have the No. 4 overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft, but could they deal it? It looks like they have several suitors.
Yesterday when talking draft, a friend of mine made a pretty good simple statement with regards to Justin Blackmon. It doesn’t really matter what a guy is “worth” on the draft value chart. Either you want him or you don’t. The draft value scale is only there to tell you what you probably have to do to get him. It also speaks to Pat McManamon’s mock draft from yesterday...
Our signature 60 Max Power O Videostat Profile segment covers select players from around the country for the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft starting on April 26th. We aim to cram as much as these in before the picks start rolling in. Up to bat is Alabama's Trent Richardson:
Hey! Come to our draft party!
We are getting closer and closer to the NFL draft and it is officially time to believe everything and nothing. The Browns will draft Ryan Tannehill. The Browns will draft Matt Kalil. The Browns will trade the pick to Miami or Philadelphia. The Browns have to draft an offensive player. Well, on second thought they could draft Morris Claiborne. The fact...
Braylon Edwards once again finds himself on the free agent market, but this time, he is not thinking he’s entitled to a big-money contract, instead, he’s likely hoping to find a team for the 2012 NFL season. And if he is healthy, do you want him to come back to Cleveland?
Braylon Edwards was a 1st round draft pick (3rd overall) by the Cleveland Browns in the 2005 NFL draft...
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead
The most important draft in Browns history; the most important draft party in Browns history. It’s the peak of the Cleveland sports season and there’s no better way to seize the momentum than at the Cleveland...
Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur caught a lot of heat last season from sports writers and armchair quarterbacks. Aside from the typical criticism that any coach would receive for his teams lack-luster performance in a 4-12 season he was also criticized for what could be considered questionable play-calling.
Stepping away from the constant chatter about the up-coming...
As the draft rapidly approaches the Cleveland Browns must decide what to do with their #4 pick. The options available to the Browns are numerous, as numerous as the opinions expressed by sports writers and draft analysts on an ever changing and daily basis. There are many opinions flooding the Internet from sports sites, bloggers and of course the on-going and constantly changing...
We all know that the air is filled with lies this time of year as teams posture and pose to try and create scenarios for draft day. If a Philly report is true, the thoughts of trading the Browns fourth pick to the Eagles is just another in a long line of misinformed nuggets.
Citing a high-level Eagles source, CSN Philly’s Reuben Frank reports that the report of Philly’s interest...
In the 1978 NFL draft the Cleveland Browns had two first round picks like they do in 2012. The first of those two picks was Clay Matthews from the University of Southern California who should be in hall of fame...but that is for another conversation. The second selection for the Cleveland Browns in the 1978 draft was Ozzie (Wizard of Oz) Newsome from the University of Alabama. Those...
It is not in my nature to comment on a story by another writer. Nor am I known to actively defend a player who chooses to acknowledge or “attack” a writer. But in this case I simply could not resist as Cleveland Browns TE Evan Moore refuted an article by Robert D. Cobb.
Cobb, who is a writer for Rant Sports wrote an article entitled “2012 NFL Draft : Why The Possibility...

Proceeds will benefit Karen Foundation for MS, as Browns cornerback Joe Haden is expected to attend.
According to Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com, the Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns have been talking all the time and they’ve discussed a trade for the fourth overall pick.
Right now though, the chances of the Eagles trading up from the 15th pick to the 4th pick are very slim.
At the end of the day, I really don’t believe that the Eagles are very serious about trading up...
