Eagles trade with Browns for the No. 2 pick

Apr 20, 2016 at 11:19 AM--


It was't even a week ago that the Los Angeles Rams acquired the top pick in the NFL Draft from the Tennessee Titans. Now, another blockbuster trade has occurred at the top. The Philadelphia Eagles have moved up to the number two spot behind the Rams in a trade with the Cleveland Browns.

The Eagles get pick number two and a 2017 fourth-round selection. The Browns acquire the Eagles' number 8, number 77 (third round), and number 100 (fourth round) selections in this year's draft, along with next year's first-round pick and a second-round pick in 2018.

The move puts the Eagles in good position to select a quarterback of the future. Cal QB Jared Goff and North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz are expected to be the first quarterbacks selected.

It was reported earlier this week that the Browns were looking to trade down and were said to be calling all the teams, presumably including the San Francisco 49ers, with top 10 selections in the first round. A trade to number two would have assured the 49ers one of the top two quarterbacks in the draft, but now, those options are certainly gone.

NFL exec predicts 49ers trade Jimmy Garoppolo to Washington

By David Bonilla

Jimmy Garoppolo isn't thinking about the offseason right now. He is focused on the San Francisco 49ers' next playoff opponent—the Green Bay Packers. However, most predict that San Francisco will transition to 21-year-old Trey Lance this offseason, no matter how far Garoppolo takes the team in the playoffs. Could a Super Bowl win change the plan in Santa Clara? Possibly. It may at least cause some rethinking among the 49ers brain trust. Still, there are significant benefits to moving on from Garoppolo, especially if coaches feel Lance has benefited enough from an entire season of studying behind the veteran quarterback. The most obvious benefit is the salary-cap savings. Garoppolo is set to count $27 million against the cap in 2022. On his rookie deal, Trey Lance will
