BEREA, Ohio —

The Cleveland Browns made three trades in the first round of the NFL draft before finally taking California center Alex Mack at No. 21.

Eric Mangini began his first draft as Cleveland's coach by making a deal with his old bosses, sending the No. 5 pick to the New York Jets, his former team who took USC quarterback Mark Sanchez. In return, Cleveland got the No. 17 pick, a second-rounder (No. 52) and three former Jets: defensive end Kenyon Coleman, safety Abram Elam and quarterback Brett Ratliff.

The Browns then dropped two spots in a trade with Tampa Bay, which also sent Cleveland a sixth-round pick (No. 191).

Mangini then swapped the No. 19 pick for Philadelphia's at No. 21 and took Mack, a 6-foot-4, 311-pounder who also can play guard.
