Browns Make Deal with Minnesota for 3rd Overall Pick

The first big trade of the NFL Draft has taken place about 60 minutes before the event, as the Vikings have agreed to trade the No. 3 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft to the Browns.

Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com reports that the Browns will send three picks to the Vikings, including the No. 4 overall pick. The other picks are reportedly a 4th, 5th and 7th round pick.

With the third pick, the Browns are expected to use that pick on Alabama running back Trent Richardson.

The Vikings had settled on three players for that No. 3 pick — USC left tackle Matt Kalil, Claiborne and Blackmon — but trading down has been something the Vikings have been willing to do for month.

Update:
Picks given up are #118 (4th from Atlanta) 139 (5th) & 211 (7th) to Minn for #3

    Browns get suckered again! Way to go in overpaying for someone that more than likely would have been there anyway. The Vikes played us to the t. “We are getting alot of calls about the third pick”, funny noone else reported that fact, not even Adam “Nostradamus” Schefter. Just another example of how we still do not have a competant front office. We made a good deal last year only to take two steps backward in this deal. We should have waited it out and taken the best player if someone else overpaid to get the third pick.

    Dude, what they gave up was security to sure themselves the best running back since Peterson and this guy “Richardson” is better then him yes i said that lol the Browns just got a guy who by himself adds 3 wins to the schedule next year. Great fantasy pick also for next season.
