Draft implications of Packers trading Damarious Randall to Browns

Report: Packers to trade Damarious Randall to Browns for QB DeShone Kizer

Packers reportedly add DeShone Kizer in Damarious Randall trade with Browns

The Cleveland Browns have been making trades like a auto dealership going out of business, acquiring Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills and Jarvis Landry from the Miami Dolphins.

In Green Bay, Kizer will have time to develop and the Packers can attempt to mold him into the player the Browns thought they were getting when they took him at No. 52 overall. But after that September dust-up, Randall played the rest of the season as Dom Capers' best cornerback in a secondary that was already razor-thin at the position.

Dorsey's remodeling of the Browns is far from finished.

The additions of Taylor and Landry certainly must have thrilled the new Browns offensive coordinator, Todd Haley, who was sacked in Pittsburgh following the Steelers' divisional-round playoff loss. But Kizer was considered by PFW to be a first-round QB prospect last spring before he slid in the draft amid questions about his maturity.

One would have to assume Green Bay wouldn't have made this move without the blessing of Pettine, who inherits a defense bereft of talent at corner.

The compensation for 2015 first-round pick Damarious Randall (hand) is a developmental quarterback, which is an apparent need after Brett Hundley was forced into action and more or less disappointed in 2017.

It ruled he should face an even more serious charge of espionage in a new trial and risk a longer prison term of up to 20 years. In a statement, Amnesty International said the ruling offered a "glimmer of hope" in a country where media has been hard hit.

Both teams are rebuilding but the Browns are rebuilding at a rapid pace.

Why did the Browns trade Kizer?

He completed 53.6 percent of his passes for 2,894 yards, 11 touchdowns and 22 interceptions on an offense ranked as the worst scoring unit in the league.

The 0-16 Browns have pulled off a freakish trio of deals within hours of one another, that has fans and pundits alike wondering what 2018 is going to look like for the perennial National Football League strugglers. Given how well the Browns' front office knows Randall, its desire for a player it scouted and watched in person also makes sense. Add a free agent or two and a draft pick or two and the Packers will be fine at cornerback. Swapping picks in the fourth and fifth rounds with the Browns is a very positive development, as it will give the Packers the first pick of those rounds.

And the makeover came as the team awaits word from Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Thomas on his future.
