    Interesting nugget from one of my sportswriter friends. The worst kept secret in the league right now is the Browns trying to package #22 and #37 to move into the top ten. They've been actively calling everybody from JAX on down to the mid-teens just to gauge interest.

    Though the obvious target is Tannenhill, apparently the Browns covet Michael Floyd and think he's a better prospect Blackman.

    As for the #4 pick, nobody in the league wants it. Richardson is still a 90% possibility simply to put some weapons on offense.

    If I were the Cowboys and my prime target was gone at # 14, I would jump on the Browns # 22 and # 37.

    #14 and #81 are just about equal to #22 and #37.

    Trading down sounds good and all, but who would be the targets with #22, #37 and #45?

    I'm thinking out loud here. Here are a list of the targets between #22 and #45 that COULD be available:

    Cordy Glenn
    Courtney Upshaw
    Nick Perry
    Whitney Mercilus
    Coby Fleener
    Andre Branch
    Dre' Kirkpatrick
    Chandler Jones
    Shae McClellin
    Peter Konz
    Donte' Hightower
    Harrison Smith
    Vinny Curry
    Kendall Wright
    Doug Martin
    Kevin Zeitler

    If I felt comfortable that I could get a combination of 3 players from that list, I would make the trade.

    If we made that trade then I would want these 3 from the list provided by ND21 (in some order):

    * Jones, Branch or McClellin
    * Fleener
    * One of the guards: Glenn, Zeitler (or Silatolu, not listed)

    it would be like shooting fish in a barrell

    If I could get either Cordy Glenn, Zeitler or Koonz

    and either McClellin or Mercilus

    I would be very happy with my first two picks actually.

    Interior OL and pass rusher. Just what the doctor ordered

    #22, #37 and #45 would be tempting. I'm all for that if Barron or Decastro are not available at #14.

    I wouldn't trade our 3rd either. If you want to move up to 14 from 22, I want your 2nd. If not, then your 3rd and 4th and probably something else next year.

    Definitely.

    I would demand at least a 2nd rounder for us to move from 14 to 22.

    I hate those charts. I don't even know if what I said matches up to it or not, but that seems fair. Your 2nd for dropping from 14 to 22.

    Otherwise I wouldn't do it. Yeah, you'd have two 2nd rounders but at the price of a downgraded 1st round pick and no pick in the 3rd round.

    those " charts ".

    Basically it comes down to what both teams agree the price should be. There have been trades in recent years that make absolutely no sense on how cheap the price was. Mark Sanchez was one of those and he's a QB.

    I don't think you'll see many like that Sanchez trade again. With how cheap the top 5 picks are now, there is no reason to move out.
