Browns may trade down with teams seeking Ezekiel Elliott

The Cleveland Browns "have been having discussions with teams behind them" who want to trade up for Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott at eighth overall, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

What It Means:

The Dallas Cowboys are becoming increasingly unlikely to take Elliott at fourth overall, leaving the sweet spot for Elliott in the 8th to 13th range. If the Browns can move back another three to five spots and pick up another second- or third-round pick in the process, it'd probably be a smart move.

The Browns wouldn't probably mind Elliott as he is an incredible talent. However, they tied for 15th in the NFL in Adjusted Offensive Rushing Net Expected Points (NEP) per attempt in 2015, so he would be a luxury. They are much more in need of stability at the quarterback position, finishing 20th in Adjusted Offensive Passing NEP per drop back last year.
