Who would have figured the Giants would be 0-4Or the Bills and Rams at 3-1 and leading their respective divisionsOr the defending Super Bowl champion Patriots struggling at 3-2How about the Jets 2-2 with a chance on Sunday to tie for the AFC East lead?
It’s a little early to start mocking trades, but I really like the idea of the Giants moving up one spot to secure Josh Rosen if the Browns decide to let it leak that he’s their top option, despite his hesitance to play in Cleveland. The Browns already have plenty of draft ammunition thanks to the work of the deposed Sashi Brown, but there’s nothing wrong with scooping up some more, especially if they have the opportunity to land future picks by dropping just one spot.
Sam Darnold, QB, USC. I expect the Browns to scout this QB class thoroughly and take whichever guy they settle on at No. 1, but it wouldn’t be all that surprising if they brought in a bridge QB while their new franchise signal-caller develops. Give the Browns an Alex Smith/Sam Bradford type for 2018, plus Darnold and another blue-chipper at No. 4, and things start to get interesting for the perennial punching bag.

That’s tough love.
