I'm sorry but if the Browns trade up the owner needs to fire then shoot the GM. Then shoot himself for hiring him in the first place.
The Browns have needs all over the place, they can get a "Great Player" w/o trading away other picks (high picks) that need to be used to fill MORE needs.
They can either get Calvin Johnson, Adrian Peterson (too soon for him IMO), or Brady Quinn... they don't have to trade up to get one of those players.
Edit: Just reread your post. Sorry, I had it basackwards. In that case, I agree. Smart move for Detroit, but an incredibly DUMB move for Cleveland (if true).
