NFL Draft: Cleveland Browns On The Clock

#3. Trent Richardson - RB - Alabama.

#22. Brandon Weeden - QB - Oklahoma State.

The Browns made sure that they picked the guy that they wanted by switching spots with the Vikings to draft RB Trent Richardson. The reason why they made this trade was because other teams were threatening to jump the Browns at three to take Richardson. To be proactive in that situation was impressive.

The Browns were also probably tipped off that some other team was going to take Weeden before their second round pick at 37. The Browns believe that he will contend for the starting spot, so they picked Weeden up at 22. They better hope that he can start since he is 28 years of age.
