Jason La Canfora of NFL Network is reporting that the Browns do have interest in QB Brandon Weeden, with some thinking Cleveland is going to snag him with the 22nd pick.
Teams and agents are trying to figure out where QB Brandon Weeden will go. Specifically, what do the Browns do at No. 22? Cleveland really likes Weeden, according to numerous sources with knowledge of the situation, but ideally, they’d love him at No. 37, in the second round.
I suspect if the Browns don’t take him 22nd, and at this point I don’t think they will, then a trade up into the late first round isn’t out of the question. If the Browns want to get a jump on anyone thinking about leaping to the top of the second round Friday, they could go ahead and do business with Bill Belichick, who is always looking to deal, at No. 31 and get their quarterback. The Browns’ dream scenario would allow them to take a WR, RB and QB with their top three picks. A year ago GM Tom Heckert did some excellent wheeling and dealing. Maybe he can do it again.
