    Look, standing pat isn’t going to do it this year. Every team knows we are desperate for a qb. If Lamar Is still on the board at 14, some team will trade up to get him. So what would it take to trade up to the 4? If Mayfield goes number one then that could leave either Rosen or Darnold left. I prefer Rosen personally. How many picks will it take?

    Honestly, probably at least three first rounders, if not more than that, like this or next year's 2nd.

    Assuming Cousins goes to the Vikings, it leaves both the Broncos and Jets in situations nearly as desperate as ours. We'll need to make the trade back so sweet for Cleveland (or the Colts) that moving back a few picks to 5 or 6 just isn't worth it to pick up another 2nd or third. And that's assuming Miami isn't offering a similar kind of package.

    If the Browns take Barkley #1 overall, there probably isn't even a way to move up into the 4 spot.

    Damn and both those teams, Broncos and Jets, have better first round picks then we do. I think it would take next years number one and two plus this years first, third, and a stud to get it done.

    I dont think 4 is available. If we want to trade up like that we have to target 1, 2, or 3

    why..

    cleveland has already said they would entertain trades for...#1,..they didnt say for 4, for #1.

    Trading for 4 only allows the Giants and the Colts to get more for 2 and 3...and it also leaves two spots in front of us for teams to trade into...everyone knows we need a QB...so if we were to go get 4.... Denver and the Jets would both be looking to get 2 and 3


    if we get to 2 and the Browns select Barkley we have our pick of the QB's...ideal.... at 3 there is still the possibility of two QB's being off the board... not likely but possible

    the tough spot is, once the Browns select Barkley at 1...the price for pick 2 goes way up...so if Keim were interested in trading up he might consider making the deal before the draft... but with the Giants also interested in Barkley they may not trade until they know clevelands pick.....
    so many unknowns this time of year... what is known...is that the Browns will in fact trade the #1 overall pick.... so they should just go for that

    Too high a cost for too little return.

    Is there a QB in this draft that is worth that much in draft capital? If there was a guy who is far and away a top QB candidate the trade would still be a gamble.

    We got average to slightly above average QBs coming out and we are going to give away the next several #1 picks?

    Even the 'consensus' #1 Darnold has flaws in his delivery that will not be easy to correct---see Tebow's struggle to correct his flaw. At the pro-level, Darnold is going to be a turnover waiting to happen.

    Keep the picks. Sign a young vet---for $30 mil you can sign two. Keep building the roster and become a dominant D, solid run game, competent QB.

    If that fails and the team tanks, we will get our #1 pick in the draft the old fashioned way---we will have earned it.

    I think both Rosen and Mayfield are worth it. I see them as being Carson Palmer and Drew Brees respectively

    I was thinking about this last night. Browns are stocked with picks this year, but what if they use #4 to stock up next year.

    Say they take a QB first and then Barkley and Chubb go 2 and 3. At 4, Browns are likely left with someone like Fitzpatrick, but say Jets are desperate to get in front of Denver and give up 6 and next year's 1 to get their guy. Say then at 6 the Cards or someone else come calling and offer their first this year and next year's first and second to go up and get the last of the top 4 QBs. Browns would get their franchise QB at #1 and flip #4 for a lower first rounder plus 2 extra ones and an extra two next year.. would really set them up to keep stockpiling and overhauling the roster.

    They won't take Barkley. They'll take a quarterback first and fleece the team that tries to move up.

    I agree with you, but there's an entire other thread on here insisting otherwise, haha. Just continuing the overall chatter.

    A 2-14 record at end of this coming season should get us to the 4th pick.

    Swap picks and give them Pat P. The Giants may even do this.

    Well the deal would not be consummated until draft day. No way is anybody going to make that trade up with Cleveland until they know for sure who is on the board. So the real thing then is you are negotiating a deal with Cleveland who is negotiating with other teams, so basically the are auctioning off the pick, and that is why I think you're looking a either 3-1s or at least 2-1s and 2-2s.

    You really want to give up a possibly HOF corner for the 3rd or 4th QB off the board, who has never thrown an NFL pass?
