Browns making a huge statement in order to land a potential pass rusher.
According to reports, the Cleveland Browns are interested in moving from their current sixth spot in the draft to move to number three, in an attempt to draft an elite pass rusher, presumably Dion Jordan.
NFL.com’s Albert Breer tweeted the news earlier, as yet more trade rumours circualte teh league on draft day.
The rumor out there that Browns could reverse field and deal up to third overall? Would likely be to jump Eagles/Lions for a pass rusher.

The Browns are on the verge of building a hard nosed defence that is looking to compete in a very tough and competitive AFC North division, that is certainly there for the taking if the young players on this Browns roster can develop in the way that the coaching staff has hoped for.
Despite Dion Jordan setting himself apart as the top pass-rusher in this draft class, there would still be significant talent for Cleveland to pick from at number six, including Barkevious Mingo and Ziggy Ansah.
This could very well be a lot of hot smoke from the team, which is sometimes a tactic used in order to force other teams into a trade, with the hope that certain players will fall down the draft to their current position.
