The Cleveland Browns have traded with the Minnesota Vikings to acquire the No. 3 overall pick of the 2012 NFL Draft.
Sources say the Browns, who held the fourth overall pick, are targeting running back Trent Richardson. Cleveland was worried the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would try and engineer a deal with the Vikings to snag the former Alabama star.
In the addition to handing Minnesota their fourth pick, the Browns also added their picks in the fourth, fifth and seventh rounds.
It’s likely that the Vikings are still in the market to trade back and acquire additional picks.
