In huge pre-fake-draft news, the BESFs and Browns are aggressively rearranging the deck chairs on their respective Titanics.

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.
