There has already been one big trade in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft after the Los Angeles Rams gave up six picks to the Tennessee Titans to move into the top spot of the draft. Now it looks like the Cleveland Browns could be working on another big pick at the top of the draft.
According to FOX Sports’ Alex Marvez, the Browns and Philadelphia Eagles have set the framework for a possible trade. This doesn’t mean that anything is in place as of right now, but if it were to happen, parameters of the trade include first and third round picks for 2016 and 2017.

It was already reported on Tuesday that the Browns were looking to trade their second pick in hopes of building up picks over the next few years. This could end up working in both teams’ favor as of right now.
The Philadelphia Eagles moved into the top ten of the first round just over a month ago when they traded Kiko Alonzo and Byron Maxwell to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for the eighth overall pick. This move mad everyone believe that they would take running back Ezekiel Elliott, however, a trade into the second spot would almost guarantee they would be taking quarterback that the Rams don’t.
The draft is still eight days away and anything can happen before the Browns go on the clock at No. 2. This is certainly going to be an interesting development to watch over the next few days.
