2012 NFL Draft: As Many As Four Teams Interested In A Trade With The Cleveland Browns

After missing out on a deal with the St. Louis Rams for the second pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns may yet make a deal with the Rams, or the Eagles, to move down from their fourth-overall spot in the first round.

According to the Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, league sources say the Rams, Eagles and other teams picking in the top 20 have signaled an interest in the Browns' fourth pick. Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill is one player of interest to teams in need of a quarterback, including the Eagles who have talked about Tannehill as a player to groom behind Michael Vick. Other teams are interested in LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne, USC offensive tackle Matt Kalil and Alabama running back Trent Richardson, the group of players widely considered among the top tier of talent in the draft.

St. Louis and Philadelphia have the purse to make it happen with each team sitting on two second-round picks. Just how much it would take to move up depends entirely on where the other teams are picking and what they are willing to offer.

A trade is unlikely to happen until the April 26, the first day of the 2012 NFL Draft.
