Browns Called The Chiefs About Trading For Berry But Never Got A Call Back

One of the best parts of the draft is what happens weeks, months and even years later when we find out which team wanted which player.

Today we find out the Browns wanted Eric Berry.

How bad?

Enough to call the Chiefs on draft day about trading up from the 7th spot to the 5th spot. The likely compensation, reports Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, was a third round pick.

So what did the Chiefs say?

Nothing. They never called the Browns back.

Apparently a third round pick wasn't enough to dissuade the Chiefs from selecting Berry.

Chiefs GM Scott Pioli covets second and third round picks so that should tell you how highly they think of Berry.
