The details of the trade have yet to be released, but NFL Insider Jay Glazer is reporting that the Vikings will be getting a total of three picks in return. We can only speculate that the Browns are moving up to No. 3 to assure that they will be able to draft Alabama running back Trent Richardson—I can only assume that they were worried about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers trading up ahead of them to snag Richardson as they currently hold pick No. 5.
Either way, we now know how the top three picks will go:
- Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck
- Washington Redskins: Robert Griffin III
- Cleveland Browns: Trent Richardson
This is a smart move by both teams as the Browns are now guaranteed to land Richardson while the Vikings are piling up the draft picks.
