Unlikely, But Anything Can Happen

From ESPN Insider:

Despite the apparent interest, however, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter doesn't think the Browns have the will or the way to trade up to the No. 1 overall pick, where Bradford is likely to be taken:

Trade with Rams seems unlikely

"The cost of going up is going to be prohibitive, and while Cleveland would love a chance to get Bradford, it's going to be awfully hard to pull it off. It would probably take next year's No. 1 pick as well as this year's No. 1 pick -- and maybe some other goodies -- to be able to trade up to get Bradford."

With all of the needs the Rams have, with Sam Bradford's shoulder, with Jimmy Clausen's foot, and with the problem of not wanting to give a DT first pick money, I am all in favor of trading the first pick. We have seen many teams trade up on draft day to get their franchise QB and hopefully the same thing happens this year. The Seahawks could be a nice trade partner with 2 first round picks and the Browns are always an option with new management. The 1st Overall pick would just be too much money for the Rams to handle. With a the 6th or the 7th pick, I would hope that Russell Okung would drop to us. With the Seahawks first 2 picks and later picks, I would take either an OT (Okung) and then either a DE or Spiller. Spiller would add another dimension to the Rams. Jackson and Spiller together would be by far the best tandem in the league. Then in 2011, our Franchise QB. With the Browns picks (read below). This year LT (Okung) and next year our QB and with the Browns pick a WR (AJ Green, Michael Floyd, Julio Jones). Okung at RT or LT, Jason Brown at C, and Jason Smith at RT or LT would become a great young offensive line. Hopefully this year Gresham falls to us in the second round. If not Sergio Kindle sounds like a great pick. I think that for a trade to happen we would also get the teams 3rd round pick. I would use this on a d lineman.
