The Cleveland Browns have traded from 4 to 3 to get Trent Richardson. They made the jump to ensure that they were able to get Trent Richardson and eliminate the risk of The Tampa Bay Buccaneers leapfrogging them to get Richardson. NFL Network is reporting that the Browns gave up a 3rd rounder to make the trade, more updates as they come.


***UPDATE*** The Browns have traded their 1st (4th overall) 4th, 5th and 7th round picks in return for the Vikings 1st (3rd overall) round pick. That is a huge haul to trade up one spot for a runningback.
