In the first big move of the night, the Browns gave up three late picks to the Vikings to move up just one spot in the draft in order to secure the rights to pick Trent Richardson.
Minnesota did an admirable job in creating a seemingly dead market for the third pick, convincing the Browns that another team would jump in front of them to land Richardson.
In terms of trade value, it works out about even according to the trade chart. Cleveland was able to not give up any early picks, which is key for a team that lacks impact players.
For Minnesota, moving back a spot had no impact on their draft plans; they were not in the market for Trent Richardson with Adrian Peterson on the roster.
Yes, it is a lot to give up for a running back, but Richardson is no ordinary back. He will be the star of the Browns' offense for the foreseeable future.
