When the Cleveland Browns traded with the Minnesota Vikings to acquire the third overall pick, the 2012 NFL draft was given its first surprise, giving everyone the indication that much more was in store for the evening.
Soon thereafter, another surprise came courtesy of the Dallas Cowboys trading with the St. Louis Rams for the No. 6 pick in order to draft Morris Claiborne from LSU.
