Cleveland Browns NFL Draft Rumors: NFL.com's Steve Wyche Thinks Browns Could Trade Up

Well, it would go against the expected conservative approach, but there are many out there who feel like the Cleveland Browns are going to make a run at former Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, and that could include using some of their assets to trade up.

Currently, the Browns hold the fourth pick, but in this mock draft on NFL.com, Steve Wyche thinks the Browns could trade up to acquire the Heisman Trophy winner with the 2nd overall pick:

PROJECTED TRADE: Several teams are going to try and move up to get Griffin but the Browns have the most ammo — the fourth overall pick and a late first-rounder or high picks in later rounds. Cleveland needs Griffin — and wants him, according to league sources — and the Rams will still get their man.

Wyche also has the Browns taking Illinois defensive end Whitney Mercilus in this mock draft, an All American who finished the year with the most sacks in FBS for the Fighting Illini.
