Eagles Acquire No. 2 Draft Pick From Cleveland Browns

Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles have completed a trade with the Cleveland Browns to get the No. 2 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

According to ESPN, the Eagles acquired the Browns’ pick Thursday in a blockbuster trade, in exchange for a number of future and upcoming picks. Philly sends five draft picks to the Browns: the No. 8 pick in the first round, a third-round pick (77th overall) and a fourth-round pick (100th overall) in this year’s draft, a first-round pick in 2017 and a second-round pick in 2018.

Cleveland also gives up a fourth-round pick in 2017.

Eagles executive VP Howie Roseman says that the team intends to take a quarterback with the No. 2 pick.

The Los Angeles Rams acquired the top overall pick from the Tennessee Titans, also for a slew of picks, and also want to draft a quarterback.

According to ESPN, the Eagles will likely take Cal’s Jared Goff or North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz, whichever is not taken by the Rams.
