The Cleveland Browns have been engaged in trade talks involving the No. 2 overall selection in the NFL draft but are uncertain whether they will ultimately trade away the coveted pick, a team source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

“There is interest in the pick,” the source told Schefter.

Although the Browns have been linked to each of the top two quarterbacks in this year’s draft — Jared Goff and Carson Wentz — Cleveland’s new-look, analytics-driven front office is seriously considering trading out of the No. 2 slot for multiple picks.

Sashi Brown, Cleveland’s new director of football operations, acknowledged last week that “there’s been some interest” from other teams in the No. 2 pick, although he noted that those inquiries were preliminary.

The Titans traded the No. 1 overall pick to the Rams on Thursday, acquiring Los Angeles’ first-round pick, two second-round picks and a third-round pick this season along with an additional first-round pick in 2017.

Multiple teams, including the Philadelphia Eagles, have been identified as potential trade partners with the Browns, who have been hosted both Goff and Wentz for visits despite the offseason signing of Robert Griffin III.

Brown said last week that Cleveland will take the player “who will give us the best chance to win over the long term.” He also said that he is confident Browns owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam will give the new regime the chance to prove itself.

“I absolutely think that Jimmy and Dee understand the importance of continuity,” Brown said. “There is a commitment from the top down to build something that is sustainable.”

The Haslams have fired three coaches, three general managers and one CEO in four years and hired three coaches and three GMs. None had more than two years in the job.

ESPN Browns reporter Pat McManamon contributed to this report.
