Browns-Packers deal a swap of disappointing high picks

Jarvis Landry

They have two of the top four picks in the draft, after all, so they are bound to be able to get at least one of the top four quarterback prospects in a class that is generally considered to be above average for the position. Per a report from's Ian Rapoport, the Browns have traded the former Notre Dame standout to the Green Bay Packers for cornerback Damarious Randall.

With marquee cornerbacks on the market in free agency, a group that will soon include Richard Sherman, the Packers could be positioning themselves to be major players there.

The trade was the last in a flurry of moves made by Dorsey on Friday, coming shortly after he acquired quarterback Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills and franchise-tagged wide receiver Jarvis Landry from the Miami Dolphins.

The Packers needed to find a better backup after last season's debacle. That leaves Kizer without a long-term role with the Browns, thus making him an expendable asset.

The next day, according to multiple sources, several players expressed that they felt Randall should be released immediately for his actions. However, his 22 interceptions led the league. His comments did not sit well with head coach Mike McCarthy.

Both teams are rebuilding but the Browns are rebuilding at a rapid pace. Providing Rodgers remains healthy, it will be years before Kizer is expected to start in Green Bay. With a wealth of draft picks and salary cap at their disposal, they have spent this Friday afternoon acquiring players via trade, although the trades can not officially be completed until next week. Veteran Davon House will become an unrestricted free agent next week.

The final grades on the Green Bay Packers 2015 draft class will be handed out soon and they will not be good. It's a worthy risk for each side, but the upside for the Browns is much more obvious given where we stand today.

Conversely, Green Bay has a history of dominant signal-callers such as current starter Aaron Rodgers, from whom Kizer will receive proper tutelage.
