The city of Cleveland may burn down if this occurs.
For the past few seasons, the Browns have been the laughing stock of the NFL. They've had a top-10 selection in five of the past six drafts, and have found themselves inside the top two picks for three years in a row.
However, the team has developed a fascination of trading out of those picks in recent history, infamously trading the No. 2 pick away in 2016 for the Eagles to pick Carson Wentz.
They stayed pat last year and got Myles Garrett, but it may not be the same in 2018.
As crazy as this sounds, John Dorsey says he will field calls for the number one pick. Says he doesn't have to take QB, could trade pick. If he trades the first pick the city will explode! #Browns— P.J. ZIEGLER (@PJFOX8) March 1, 2018
According to GM John Dorsey, the Browns would be open to trading the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft, and will be fielding calls for interested teams.
Like any trade down in the NFL, this could be catastrophic, or the best deal ever. There's a huge amount of QB talent in the draft this season, meaning if the Browns traded back a few slots they likely could still get a viable option under center.
However, the Browns have been burned enough to know that maybe this isn't the best idea in the world.
