Moneyball football is in full effect in Cleveland, or so it seems.

Holding the No. 2 overall selection, the Browns have their choice at franchise quarterback, or just about any player at any position after the Tennessee Titans (likely) snag an offensive lineman to protect Marcus Mariota.

Except according to reports from, the Browns are willing to deal their selection.

“There has been some interest in the pick, but there always typically is toward the top of the draft, just teams feeling each other out,” Browns Executive Vice President Sashi Brown said Wednesday on SiriusXMNFL radio. “I think in earnest as you get closer to the draft, probably in about a week’s time we’ll start getting real calls with more substantive traction to them.”

And if the Browns do move down, Cleveland could actually hold off until the second round to snag a quarterback:

Top prospects Carson Wentz and Jared Goff will likely be off the board in Round 1. Does that mean Cleveland would be happy settling for the likes of Paxton Lynch, Christian Hackenberg, Connor Cook, Dak Prescott or even Cardale Jones?
