Browns complete blockbuster trade with Eagles

The Cleveland Browns have completed a blockbuster pre-draft trade with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Browns will trade the No. 2 pick in this year’s draft a conditional fourth-round pick in 2017 for Philadelphia’s first-round pick (No. 8), third-round selection (No. 77) and fourth-round pick (No. 100) this year, along with the Eagles’ 2017 first-round pick and a 2018 second-round pick.

Cleveland, and first-year coach Hue Jackson, now have 12 picks in the 2016 draft, including six of the top 100 picks.

The three-day NFL Draft begins April 28 in Chicago.

The Browns face the Eagles to open the season Sept. 11.
