By now, if you’ve followed the NFL around draft season, you know to take every rumor with a grain of salt. Normally, where there’s smoke there’s fire. However, an exception to the rule is the draft.
So, when you hear a rumor about who a particular team is planning to take, or that a club is looking to trade out of its pick, don’t read into it as gospel truth.
That said, this hardly means the rumors won’t be interesting. Take the Cleveland Browns for example. Sitting at No .2 overall, there have been a ton of whispers regarding what Cleveland is supposedly planning to do.
The funny thing is, each of the rumors seem to have convincing evidence behind them.
