NFL Draft 2011: Cleveland Browns Score King's Ransom in Trade-Down

This is terrible news for Steelers fans. The Cleveland Browns appear to be doing smart things. Very smart things.

The Brownies traded down from the sixth overall pick 27th overall pick—a big jump to be sure. The Browns got paid handsomely for their willingness to add value, as Cleveland acquired the Falcons’ 2nd round pick (59th overall) and fourth round pick (124th overall) this year, as well as their first and fourth round pick for next year.

This is a huge move for a team with a ton of needs. The Browns take one quality pick and turn it into five of them. Hopefully, they will take Brady Quinn with all of the picks they acquired.
