NFL Draft Day 3: Browns trade pick No. 111 to Steelers for 3rd-rounder next year

BEREA – The Browns traded out of the fourth round, and they sent the pick to the rival Pittsburgh Steelers.

With the Browns on the clock at No. 111 – the 14th pick of the fourth round – they sent the selection to the Steelers in exchange for a third-round pick in 2014.

The Browns’ next scheduled pick is at 139 in the fifth round.

The trade is surprising for a couple of reasons.

The Browns entered the draft with only seven picks, and numerous holes on the roster.

And they hadn’t made a trade with the Steelers since 1968, when Cleveland got quarterback Bill Nelsen.
