Eagles trade with Browns for second pick in NFL Draft


The Philadelphia Eagles have traded with the Cleveland Browns to acquire the second pick in next week's NFL Draft, giving up five selections over the next three years to make the move.

Philadelphia gave up their eighth-overall pick, a third-rounder and a fourth-rounder in this year's draft, plus a first-rounder in 2017 and a second-round selection in 2018.

As well as the second pick, the Eagles also receive a 2017 fourth-rounder from the Browns in return.

The expectation is Philadelphia will select whichever of the two quarterbacks regarded as the best in the draft - California's Jared Goff and North Dakota State's Carson Wentz - the Los Angeles Rams do not take with the first overall selection. Los Angeles traded with the Tennessee Titans last week to acquire the top pick.

Cleveland, meanwhile, appear more focused on accumulating picks than taking one of the top quarterbacks, though their situation at the position remains uncertain. New acquisition Robert Griffin III and Josh McCown sit atop the depth chart for Hue Jackson's men.
