2017 NFL Draft: Browns trade No. 12 pick to the Texans for No. 25 and 2018 first rounder

The Cleveland Browns took the best player in the 2017 NFL Draft with the No. 1 overall pick, Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett. But, now with the team’s second first round pick, the Browns have traded the No. 12 pick to the Houston Texans for No. 25 and a 2018 first round pick. The Browns could have selected the likes of safety Malik Hooker of Ohio State, defensive lineman Johnathan Allen of Alabama or tight end O.J. Howard of Alabama. Instead, they chose to move down and continue to add draft capital.

The Browns will now have five picks in the first two rounds of the 2018 NFL Draft. They own their own first round pick and now the Texans’ first rounder. In the second round, the Browns have their pick, along with the second round picks of the Philadelphia Eagles and Texans. They got the Eagles pick in the Carson Wentz trade during the 2016 draft, while getting the Texans second rounder in the trade for Brock Osweiler this offseason.

Fans may not like the Browns passing on top-tier talent, but the chance to get another first round pick is a big opportunity Cleveland could not pass up, no matter who was still on the board. But, I think the Browns are not done on the trade front with all the top talent currently falling in the draft.

Cleveland has had their fair share of quarterback struggles since their return to the league in 1999, but signing (and overpaying) Osweiler has now essentially cost the Texans a first and second round pick in 2018.

    first off , i am freakin’ stoked with what transpired yesterday … i can’t believe we COULD”VE had Garrett AND Allen & we didn’t have to move up to do it. we’re sitting there at #12 with Allen , Howard , Hooker , Foster & others available & they trade down.

    essentially , with their first 3 picks , the Browns netted Garrett , Peppers , Njoku AND now have another 1st round pick next year … the HBT gets a high grade from me on their day 1 efforts … now finish it off.
