Cleveland Browns: Saquon Barkley is a No-Brainer with No. 1 Pick


Shortly after acquiring Landry and Taylor from Miami and Buffalo, Cleveland shipped 2017 second-round pick and former Toledo Catholic and Notre Dame standout DeShone Kizer to the Green Bay Packers for Damarious Randall. The Browns are expected to attempt to work out a long-term deal with Landry. Assuming they let Joe Webb III walk in the spring, Buffalo will be left with just one quarterback on their roster entering the free agency period. Were the Bills smart to move Taylor?

Even before the three moves on Friday, Barkley's dynamic display of his athleticism at the Combine had scouts explaining why the Browns couldn't pass on drafting him even.

The simple answer is yes.

If the Los Angeles Rams' defense is as relentless in the upcoming season as the team's front office has been in reassembling it, the future could be bright.

Miami finished sixth-worst in scoring last season and went 6-10.

The Jets have targets in mind, and they hope to find players who can stick with their team for several years.

However, even with Taylor around, the Browns are still expected to select a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft and Dorsey and his staff are in the process of deciding if that's Southern Cal's Sam Darnold, UCLA's Josh Rosen, Wyoming's Josh Allen or Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, the Heisman Trophy victor who scares some Cleveland fans because of his Johnny Manziel-like showmanship. Yes, the back to back first rounders are nice but there are reservations about trading that far down.

This is actually a pretty solid return for Taylor, especially given his contract situation. Sherman was due $13 million for the 2018 season and his release gives Seattle a salary cap savings of about $11 million.

It remains to be seen if Randall can succeed in the National Football League above and beyond his current resume at a new position.

Shelton was selected with the No. 12 overall pick in 2015. I actually thought that the Browns would get it right this year and believed that they would take Darnold with the number one pick in the draft and Minkah Fitzpatrick with the 4th, but now they will not take Darnold and will choose Saquon Barkley instead.

If Mike Maccagnan was hoping to start free agency with a financial leg up on all other bidders, yesterday was a good day for the GM.

The Bills are no longer fooling anybody. No doubt, they will try to use it to trade up for a quarterback. They did bring back head coach Marvin Lewis for an additional two seasons even after rumors of him being out of a job seemed nearly certain.

So in three trades, Cleveland added one of the NFL's best young wideouts, a savvy. mobile and talented quarterback and one of the best young corners. They freed up a ton of a cap space and received a solid draft pick in the process.
