Browns shopping veterans James Taylor, Randall Telfer
The Cleveland Browns will be the busiest team in the NFL on Thursday night with the team being armed with two of the first four picks in the NFL Draft. Cleveland owns the first and fourth picks in the first round with plenty of teams expressing interest in trading up for one of the top-tier quarterbacks in this draft class.
According to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal, the Browns may also be interested in trading two of their veteran players currently on the roster.
The Browns are also shopping cornerback Jamar Taylor and tight end Randall Telfer, a source said. On Wednesday, NFL Network reported Taylor could be dealt if Dorsey drafts a cornerback early. Taylor and Telfer were full-time starters for the Browns last season.
Cleveland seems to be open to a lot of different scenarios that come their way on Thursday night with no telling how the team’s roster may look once the dust settles. At this point, it appears Baker Mayfield out of Oklahoma may be their pick at No. 1, via Ulrich.
Two league sources said they sense Mayfield will become the top pick. Whether that comes to fruition remains to be seen.
As for No. 4, it seems Cleveland could go in a number of different directions from trading down to bringing in Bradley Chubb of NC State to pair with last year’s top pick, Myles Garrett. The prospect of trading Taylor and or Telfer may hint at their intentions as Ulrich suggests as they may have their eyes on a prospect at one or both positions.
