Draft: Trading Back

Alright gentlemen, I have been posting about the off-season since I joined up in December. I have talked about trading for Brandon Marshall, signing some key people, and now I am bring up a radical idea. I talked about trading with many teams from the Patriots to the Chiefs to move back in the draft. If you don't remember, It would take the Patriots their entire first three rounds to move up to our spot and it would take the Chiefs almost all of their first two rounds. Now, I will be talking about the Browns.

Watching the television tonight, I stumbled across SportsCenter. They were doing Cold Hard Facts and John Clayton was talking. He mentioned the Browns might be wanting to move ahead of the 'Skins to pick up Claussen and would pay greatly for it. At first, I didn't like the idea but I started to think. How much would it cost, using the Point Value Chart that everyone hates, for the Browns to move up?

For the people who are still reading this, It would be a lot. It would take their first three picks in the draft(#7,#38, and #71). That means, we move back four picks to pick up a second and third. Because the draft is filled with talent, I like the idea. Though some people are getting their guns ready to shoot me, I think we could still have a shot to pick up one of the DT's. This is how I see the Draft going if this were to happen. Bradford, Okung, Claussen, Bulaga, Berry, and Suh/McCoy. That leaves us with a choice. Should we trade back up to 5th and select a DT or hope that Suh or McCoy drop to us. We would have to trade the (#7, #71, 7th rounder for #5 and #140(roughly)) That would assure us a DT to stop the run, we would still have #38 to use in the second round, and about #140 in the 5th round.

I know most of you are foaming at the mouth but please give me your insight.
