Just hours before the 2015 BRB Mock Draft officially gets underway, the Tennessee Titans (helmed by a self-loathing Huggy the Bear) and the Cleveland Browns (Caprock High Football) have made a trade that will inexorably alter the geographical location of multiple players' feelings of hopelessness.
The terms of the swap:
Browns receive BESFs 2015 1st-round pick (2nd overall).
BESFs receive both of the Browns' 2015 1st-round picks (12th and 19th overall), Cleveland's 2015 3rd-round pick (77th overall), and Cleveland's 2016 2nd-round pick.
A high price to pay for the 2nd overall pick? Perhaps. But this is the Browns. Assuming this move is made to allow them to take a quarterback, you might be able to justify the price simply but pointing out that the franchise's list of QBs over the past 15 years could make a Texans fan feel somewhat better about himself.
For the Titans, this trade makes total sense. As Grantland pointed out the other day, Tennessee is a team more or less devoid of talent. With the 12th and 19th pick, they gets two cracks at finding some starting-quality players.
