Cleveland Browns

Trade: Cooper for 2019 3rd round pick & 2020 3rd round pick

With draft picks to spare and cap space to keep Cooper long term, this would be a good move for the Browns as they look to build around rookie QB Baker Mayfield.

At the moment, Cleveland doesn’t have a receiver they can trust after Jarvis Landry. They hoped Antonio Callaway would be able to fill the Josh Gordon void, but that has not been the case. Cooper would be a definite upgrade and would allow Callaway to grow a little more

Their wideouts have been struggling with dropped passes which I’m not sure Cooper would actually help, but Cleveland saw first hand in week 4 what Cooper can do if you’re willing to keep him involved in the offense.

This obviously would not be ideal for the Raiders, but to get some solid third round picks which could later be used as a bargaining piece to move up in the draft is not a bad thing to have.
