According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Minnesota Vikings have traded the 3rd overall pick of tonight’s NFL draft to the Cleveland Browns for the 4th overall pick. Once we get the additional compensation we’ll update this post.
The Browns now make sure they’ll be able to draft Alabama running back Trent Richardson by locking up the 3rd pick. This keeps the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from being able to come in and grab Richardson.
Update: The Browns gave up picks 4, 118, 139 and 211 to move up to the 3rd pick.Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
