Breaking News: Cleveland Browns swap first round pick with Minnesota Vikings


 

In an announcement on NFL Network, the Cleveland Browns have moved up to the #3 pick in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft.  They have given a fourth, fifth, and seventh round pick to the Minnesota Vikings who will now have pick #4 in the first round.

The rumor is that the Browns want to draft Alabama running back Trent Richardson.  A wise move since they parted ways with running back Peyton Hillis.

Another rumor is that L.S.U. cornerback Morris Claiborne is #1 on the Vikings draft board and said that they are “interested” in him.  But this could be just speculation.
