The Browns are climbing.

A huge win over the Falcons, 28-16, this past Sunday in Cleveland shows the amount of progress this team has made since the beginning of the year. Quarterback Baker Mayfield was absolutely fantastic going 17/20 for 216 yards and three touchdowns. Running back Nick Chubb rushed for 176 yards including a 92-yard touchdown.

See, Browns fans are conditioned to cling to the draft picks that we have because they represent hope for the future. Most of the time, it is to get the quarterback this franchise typically needs. The difference is that now we already have the QB of the future and a GM capable of finding talent in the later rounds of the draft.

Let me list a few names for you. Corey Coleman, Danny Shelton, Justin Gilbert, Johnny Manziel, Brandon Weeden & Trent Richardson. Shall I go on?

Now, I know what you’ll say. Well, GM John Dorsey did not make those picks. My point is that simply because a team has a high first-round selection does not mean that player is guaranteed to be a stud. There are a lot of busts in the NFL.

I am willing to trade the 2019 & 2020 Browns first-round picks to the New York Giants for star wide receiver, Odell Beckham Jr.

This is why.

 

Two first round picks is a high price for any player but besides an injury-plagued 2014, please look at those numbers. Take Odell and add him into the mix with a capable QB in Baker, WR’s Jarvis Landry, Hollywood Higgins, RB Duke Johnson (pass catcher), TE David Njoku and then Nick Chubb in the backfield and this could possibly be the best offense in the NFL or right up there.

Let’s give the Browns two more wins to finish this year as a fair number. 5-10-1 on the year and likely a pick in the 8-12 range. Then, next year we say that because of the Odell addition their first-round pick in 2020 ends up being a late first rounder in the 20’s. Predicting the Browns to be a good team is bold, but that is what makes this work.

It’s NOT like the Browns would be giving the Giants say the 2019 #3 overall and 2020 #5 overall selections. That is a much higher price than the aforementioned places in the first round.

After this past draft with Baker, CB Denzel Ward and RB Nick Chubb, of course, I trust GM John Dorsey as much as the next fan. And many will say that this is a reason we should supply him with these first-round picks I am saying to trade away.

 

Dorsey is so good in my estimation that what he will end up doing is taking our later picks in the next two years, finding talented players that drop and draft those guys to fill in the holes of this team.

We know we are getting a star in Odell Beckham Jr. and that we do not need a quarterback anymore. Finally! I am willing to give up a mid-first-rounder and hopefully a late-first-rounder for a star that is locked up contractually for the next four seasons.

Another very important point – this is not a rental.

Odell makes our offense DANGEROUS! Everyone will be better, more open and the field will be spread out for Baker to fire the ball all over the place. Jarvis will have better games, Higgins will get more open and Duke, Njoku and anyone else will find the game is a lot easier simply with the threat of Odell on the field. Plus, his play in it of itself.

This is a risk, no doubt.

The downside is that Odell could get injured or have problems here in Cleveland and two great players end up going to other teams instead of Cleveland. Here’s the thing. I want to actually win and I am tired of playing games. The Browns need to make a splash, take a huge chance and make this move.

When Odell is kissing that Lombardi trophy in a few years. Remember this article.
