Everyone (myself included), seems to think that the Browns should trade up for Robert Griffin III, and I think that that's what they'll do when all is said and done.
However, their front office is apparently looking at Trent Richardson with their fourth overall pick, according to CBS Sports. I see that and think "That means they're going for Manning."
The Browns have the fourth and 22nd overall picks in the draft this year, and they won't be able to use those to get both Griffin and Richardson.
They'd need to trade up to get either one of them.
That means, if the report is to be believed, that they're considering drafting Trent Richardson fourth overall. They're unlikely to keep using Colt McCoy, so that means they'll be going after Peyton Manning in free agency.
It wouldn't be a terrible fit. Peyton would, for the first time in his career, have a workhorse running back to hand the ball off to, and not a terrible group of receivers for him to spread the ball out. I don't think it'd be his first choice, but it could work.
