This front office is not a "trade up" group of guys. This front office follows a formula and today that formula says trade down. When a football team has a lot of needs, they are better off using a shotgun approach. The team is more likely to find talent with a bunch of day three picks than they are with a single day 1 pick. Not only are they more likely to find talent, it will be cheaper to keep the talent that they find once they hit free agency. The only reason I think that there's better than a 50% chance that the team uses the #1 pick is because it is hard to get a premiere pass rusher in free agency and Myles Garrett lights up so many measurables. But you can bet that this team is going to listen to offers to trade down when they are on the clock. The formula could change some day if other teams stop over paying to trade up or if the Browns only need to fill a single position. That's not the case though. Today formula today is pretty clear. The Browns still need to find a dozen more talented guys before they start worrying about position. Doesn't make sense to get into a bidding war with other teams who are trying to trade buckshot shells for a single sniper round.
