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>

With the 6th overall selection, the Falcons took now-All Pro wide receiver <strong>Julio Jones</strong> from Alabama.<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.

2013 NFL Mock Draft: Pre-Combine Edition

<strong><strong>1. Kansas City Chiefs</strong> - Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M</strong><br>
The Chiefs' new coach, Andy Reid, will want to build an offense, but their front office will have a tough decision this summer. Both WR Dwayne Bowe and OT Branden Albert need a new contract, and the team can only franchise one of them. If they cannot pay Albert, replacing him with the top tackle in the draft makes sense.
It has been just over two weeks since our last mock draft, and there have been a number of developments that will impact the first round of the upcoming draft. For prospects, the news leading up to this week’s NFL Combine in Indianapolis has been mixed. Georgia’s inside linebacker Alec Ogletree, who I have had... Read more »
