Patriots acquired DT Danny Shelton and a 2018 fifth-round pick from the Browns in exchange for the Patriots' third-round pick in 2019.
Shelton was the Browns 1st-round pick in 2015 out of Washington. He was a contributor to their elite run defense in 2017 and graded as a top-20 interior defender against the run according to Pro Football Focus. Despite his success, this seems to be a beneficial trade for both teams. The Browns will likely rely more on former third-round pick Larry Ogunjobi who excelled in his 2017 rookie campaign. It also fills a big hole for the Patriots after not exercising DT Alan Branch's 2018 team option. Shelton will likely be used as a role player against teams that frequently use heavy packages and especially in run-stuffing situations, something the Patriots struggled with in 2017.
