2011 NFL Draft Grades: Report Card for the Cleveland Browns First Round

Somebody give Tom Heckert a raise. A big raise. 

In trading the No. 6 pick to the Atlanta Falcons, Heckert pulled off what was undoubtedly the steal of the draft, getting the Falcons' first, second, and fourth round picks this year, and their first and fourth round picks in 2012. 

It feels like Christmas in April. 

But even that wasn't the end of the madness. The Browns then traded the 27th pick (which they acquired from Atlanta) to the Chiefs along with their third round pick for Kansas City's No. 21 pick. 

With the 21st pick, the Browns selected Baylor DT Phil Taylor. Suffice it to say that all of our mock drafts turned out to be very wrong. Not that we should be complaining about that, considering how things turned out.
