After trading down five spots and then up one in the top 10, the Browns nearly jumped by 15, from No. 26 to No. 11.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that the Browns nearly did a deal with the Titans for the eleventh overall pick, but that it fell apart at the last minute.

Per a league source, the thinking is that the Browns were trying — and are still trying — to move up for Johnny Manziel.

If they’re going to do it, they need to do it soon.  He’s three picks away from landing in Dallas, potentially.
