Browns, Eagles agree to trade of 1st-round draft picks, other selections

The Browns and Eagles agreed Wednesday to a trade of first-round picks and other selections in the 2016, 2017 and 2018 drafts.

Cleveland will trade Philadelphia its 2016 first-round selection (No. 2 overall) and a conditional 2017 fourth-round selection for Philadelphia's 2016 first-round selection (No. 8), third-round selection (No. 77), fourth-round selection (No. 100) along with the Eagles' 2017 first-round pick and a 2018 second-round pick.

"We are excited about owning 12 picks heading into this year's draft and acquiring the high future picks in 2017 and 2018," said Browns Executive Vice President of Football Operations Sashi Brown. "These picks will play a major role in building our team for long-term sustained success. We want to assemble a young nucleus of talented players and this trade positions us really well. There is a good depth of talent in the first round and we felt we could make a larger impact to our roster by adding more draft picks and that's why we made the decision to trade down."

The Browns now have 12 selections in the 2016 NFL Draft, tied for most of any team, including six of the top 100 picks.

The Browns and Eagles square off Week 1 in Philadelphia.

The Browns also own Philadelphia's 2017 first-round pick, Indianapolis' 2017 seventh-round pick and Philadelphia's 2018 second-round pick.

Cleveland has conditionally surrendered its 2017 fourth-round pick to Philadelphia and its 2017 sixth- or seventh-round pick to San Francisco.
