Give Rick Spielman credit. He’s proved worth his weight in gold already tonight. Per Fox Sports Jay Glazer the Cleveland Browns have swapped picks with the Minnesota Vikings (moving from 3 to 4) in addition to throwing in a 4th round pick, a 5th round pick and a 7th round pick.
So much of the predraft process was will Spielman be able to trade the 3rd overall pick away and he’s accomplished just get that. He’s fibbed the media creating an artificial market for the pick, only God knows who else was calling but earlier today the vibe was that Trent Richardson would go 3rd overall and now the Browns are blocking every other team from taking him. Do the Vikings now take Morris Claiborne or Matt Kalil? Stay tuned.
