Cleveland Browns Trade Up One Spot ... to Draft Justin Gilbert 8th


Sorry folks, the Browns didn’t trade up one spot from 9th to 8th to take Johnny Manziel. Instead, the Browns gave up a 5th round pick to Minnesota to move up one spot to grab Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert.

That has to be something of a disappointment for Browns fans, who would have loved Manziel there.

Gilbert isn’t a bad pick – though it’s a deep cornerback draft – as he’ll pair with Joe Haden in the secondary.
