These Are The 5 Teams Interested In Trading Up With The Browns (And What It Would Cost)

The NFL Draft is just over a week away, and the rumor mill surrounding a possible trade at the No. 2 overall spot is starting to heat up. The Cleveland Browns are reportedly actively shopping the No. 2 overall pick, and several teams have already looked into the cost of moving up in the draft. 

Below, we have those five teams listed, who they could be targeting and what it would cost in any trade. The original report says that the teams have only looked into moving up, not that they are close to any trade. While a deal might not happen, the teams are at least interested in moving up. The teams are ranked in order of their draft position and they'd all be moving up to take either Carson Wentz or Jared Goff. With that in mind, here are the 5 teams interested in trading up with the Browns in the 2016 NFL Draft. 

Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys are just two spots behind the Browns at No. 4 overall. A move up would be a clear sign that the Cowboys are trying to land whichever QB the Rams don't pick, with Carson Wentz reportedly high on their draft board. According to the NFL Trade Value Chart, the difference between the Browns' and Cowboys' pick is worth roughly the Cowboys' second and third round picks this year. That's a steep price to move up just two spots and the Cowboys would likely not pull the trigger at that price. But if the Cowboys could get the Browns down to a fourth rounder, they might be willing to do it. 

San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers were linked heavily to Jared Goff before the Rams moved up, but they might be willing to move up for Wentz if he falls to No. 2. Although Trent Baalke has a reputation for trading down, he's actually moved up in the first round more than he's moved down. The price is even steeper for the 49ers and moving up would have to cost them their second, third and possibly even more.  

Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles have been linked to Wentz heavily and seem like the most willing of the teams in the Top 10 to make a move up. While the Eagles would likely love to land Wentz, they might have issues actually landing him. They don't have a second round pick this year, which means they'd have to part with a first rounder next year, or move someone like Fletcher Cox, in a trade. That might be more than the Eagles are willing to give up, especially since they sunk so much money into Sam Bradford and Chase Daniel this offseason. 

Buffalo Bills
The Bills are the surprise on this list, as they have Tyrod Taylor at QB. However, Taylor is set to be a free agent and the Bills might not be sold on him just yet. It would take a massive move up by the Bills to get the Browns' pick and it might cost them as much as it did for the Rams to move up. Plus, if the Bills drafted Wentz/Goff, they'd likely trade away Taylor. A three-team deal involving another team like the Broncos could be an option, although that's unlikely. 

New York Jets
This is not the first time the Jets have been linked to moving up. Much like Buffalo, this would require the Jets to sacrifice this year's draft and like much of next year's. However, the Jets could include someone like Muhammad Wilkerson to help lessen the draft picks heading to the Browns. Of course, with the Browns rebuilding, there's no guarantee they'd even want Wilkerson.
