The common belief is that the Cleveland Browns will select either Carson Wentz or Jared Goff with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft next. However, that may not be the case.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Browns actually may have never been in the market for a quarterback with the pick.
Schefter appeared on the Ross Tucker Football Podcast to share his belief that the new Browns leadership “plans to construct its supporting-cast players before taking the dive on a potential franchise quarterback.”
So could the Browns actually trade out of the No. 2 spot?
Schefter went on to add the Philadelphia Eagles, San Francisco 49ers and New York Jets as potential trade partners for the Browns. Considering how much hype has been building around the top two quarterbacks leading up to the draft, trading with a desperate team in exchange for a stockpile of picks could be the move Cleveland finally needs to begin their path back to prominence.
