Trent Richardson Traded: The Evolution of Cleveland's Hot Mess

The Browns held the 6th overall selection in the 2011 NFL Draft, but they didn’t use the pick. In a swing-for-the-fences move by the Atlanta Falcons, the Browns received picks number 26 (first round), 59 (second round), and 124 (fourth round) in the 2011 Draft plus the Falcons’ first and fourth round picks in the 2012 Draft for the 6th overall selection.<br><br>

Cleveland did not keep the 26th overall pick they received from the Falcons, though. They traded the pick - receiver <strong>Jon Baldwin</strong> from Pitt - and a third round pick (#70 overall) to Kansas City for the 21st overall pick, DT <strong>Phil Taylor</strong> from Baylor.<br><br>

In the first 22 games of his NFL career, Jones has 2,415 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns.
