Mike Holmgren of the Browns has made it clear he wants to deal. At least one team is listening.

We donít know how serious talks between the Patriots and Browns are, but Greg A. Bedard of the Boston Globe reports New England has talked with Cleveland regarding interest in the No. 6 overall pick. ESPN has also reported that the Patriots want to move.

Bedard figures the Patriots want to move up for UNC pass rusher Robert Quinn, who would convert to outside linebacker in New England. Bedard believes Julio Jones or Patrick Peterson could also be targets.

this reminds me of the Pats/Jets with Gholston for some reason. maybe its the mention of Quinn

I would love to get a 2nd round pick move down and take a guy like JJ Watt.

Would Belichick really allow some info like this to get out if he intended on doing this?

Trade half your draft to move up for a guy that didn't play last year AND you'll have to teach him to drop back in coverage in a 3-4?

No thanks

only one i'd do it for would be peterson. we need to dump meriweather and supposedly he is the most nfl ready

Silly if this happens. Quinn isn't even the best D-lineman from NC in the draft. Can't see the hoodie giving up 2 first round picks for this guy.

I'd be cool with Peterson and Julion Jones. Too much risk for hybrid type player though.

I'd say the chances of this happening have to be less than 10% though.
