Browns trade up to get Justin Gilbert at No. 8


After previously trading down to the N0. 9 spot the Cleveland Browns moved up to No. 8 by pulling off a trade with the Minnesota Vikings.

In addition to swapping picks, the Vikings will also get the Browns fifth round pick.

The Browns selected cornerback Justin Gilbert. While playing at Oklahoma State Gilbert was a 2014 1st team Big-12 selection.

Given the history of Mike Pettine being a defensive coordinator the move is understandable but by selecting Gilbert they can combine him with Joey Hayden in their secondary.

The move left Johnny Manziel on the board.
