I'm not arguing over who the Browns should take. I'm saying you're a fool if you think NYG or Denver are giving up the haul of picks you mentioned, PLUS their 1st Round picks from last year. You say "teams will give up players" to move up, sure they could but generally that's not true. They trade players for additional picks and to shed cap space. They trade picks (current and future) to move up in the draft.
