Cleveland Browns: 7-Round Mock Draft

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that another one has jumped on the "trade up for RG3 bandwagon".

If you're thinking that, you couldn't possibly be more wrong.

However, it is likely that Robert Griffin the third will shape the way this years draft will turn out.

I am not one who thinks the Browns should or will trade up to pick him though. But I am pretty sure the Browns will be involved in a first round trade.

The Browns are in somewhat of an awkward drafting position, but if they play their cards right they may be able to capitalize on the situation.

It is likely that there will be couple of teams looking to trade up and draft Griffin,. The Browns are the first team picking that would have any interest in him, so it stands to reason that any team trying to trade up would be looking to draft ahead of the Browns.

The Browns could put it out there that they would take Griffin with the number four pick, but would also be willing to trade down if the price is right.

In that circumstance, it would make more sense for any team looking to trade up to deal with the Browns instead, as it would cost them less in return than it would to deal with St. Louis or Minnesota.

Miami and Washington are the two main teams that would be interested in trading up to take Griffin.

I think it is likely that one of them will try to acquire Matt Flynn in free agency, leaving only one team still in the hunt, and giving the Browns a good opportunity to make a deal.

I think that Washington is very likely the team that will be looking to sign Matt Flynn, leaving the Miami Dolphins as a trade partner for the Browns.
