NFL Draft 2012: Browns Potential Trade Partners With Rams, According To Jeff Fisher

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher says the Cleveland Browns are “a potential trade partner” with them on draft night. There have been rumors floating around that the Browns would like to move down, and that they have a few players in mind that they’d like to select with their first round pick, but that they also would not move out of the top 10, in all likelihood.

That would make the Rams a sensible trade destination, since it looks like the Rams want Justin Blackmon bad enough to trade up for him, and the Browns are potentially confident enough to keep Blackmon out of their future plans. It would be interesting for the Rams to trade back up after moving down with the Washington Redskins, but it would make sense and would allow the Browns to get one of their preferred targets, which likely at this point includes Blackmon, LSU CB Morris Claiborne, Alabama RB Trent Richardson, and Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill.

There have been rumors that the Browns could be interested in taking Tannehill at the fourth overall pick, but perhaps they feel like they can get a couple of extra picks out of the deal, still get Tannehill (in front of the Dolphins), and continue to be flexible throughout the process with 13 picks come April.

As inactive as the Browns have been in the free agency process, they could be an interesting team to watch on draft weekend.
