Just saw this...shouldn't effect us...I think Minny just will take Kalil at 4, and Cleveland will take Blackmon or Richardson at 3.

Confirmed, on ESPN radio at the moment.

They must've gotten scared someone was trying to swoop in and pick up Richardson. Smart move I wonder how much they gave up.

Shefter seems to think it is Richardson at 3.

They're trading up to take Trent Richardson since picks #1 and #2 are completely locked in.

It was a panic move by Cleveland.

Gave up 3 other picks. Not sure which rounds yet

I hope they do take tannehill. That would help us alot

Damn that's a lot of picks, they must really want the kid.

So stupid to take a tailback at #3. Vikes did great.

Danny
04-26-2012, 07:15 PM
how stupid can they be?.....they panicked big time.....unless they thought someone else would have moved in front of them of course but a RB at 3 in this day of age?

Ozzy rules!!

So scratch Tannehill off of the Brown's list. :brewskis:

What were the trade details?

BassFin

Shefter saying it's for Richardson. Browns had extra pick in each of the 4th, 5th & 7th rounds.

Didn't know that.... If that's the case that's a really really good move by the browns.

i think it's a 4th 5th & 7th rd picks

richardson will be the pick and he wil be a pro bowler. cleveland makes good move to get what they want and need.

This is good. We didnt need a rb anyway!

PJack

They haven't given details but it's for the 4th pick and at least one other (maybe 3rd rounder?). Trend Richardson is their guy.

According to Jason LaCanfora

MIN receives
#4 overall pick
4th round pick
5th round pick
7th round pick

CLE receives
#3 overall

Great move by Minny. Didn't want TR so got something for nothing.

Actually not a bad deal for the Browns either if they had extra picks in those rounds. They didn't have to give up their other 1st, 2nd, or 3rd round pick.

napsndreds
04-26-2012, 07:22 PM
They gave up a 4th 5th and 7th. not that bad for trich or tannehill. :)

Myles Fynch

Jim Brown is not amused.

:sidelol:

Spielman got a good deal. Sill get their guy without a doubt and get three extra pics.

Roman529
04-26-2012, 07:25 PM
Now I am scared Ireland will do the same and fork over a 4th, 5th and 6th to Jacksonville to move up one spot to get Tannehill. :rolleyes2:

Myles Fynch
04-26-2012, 07:26 PM
More afraid it would be for the next Cornlumbo.

Well hello Trent Richardson..I'm the Cleveland Browns

Wow, Rick Spielman did something intelligent? That's... unexpected.

how does this trade make sense for the browns?

they moved up 1 spot to take a running back, and the team they moved up 1 spot with was prob one of the least likely teams to take a running back in the draft with AP.( YES I KNOW HE TORE HIS ACL BUT HE IS EXPECTED TO BE READY FOR SEASON)

i dont know, makes little sense to me.

There were Tampa rumors out there, and I guess Cleveland started sweating.

Tampa might of traded with Vikings to get trent or any other team that was contacting the vikings so they secured trent

They were prob scared the Bucs were going to leapfrog them and pic up T. Rich.

I'd love for us to make a trade like the one the Vikings just made!

Let's move down a spot or two and pick up an additional 4th, 5th and 7th round picks.

I'm down with it!

LOL, ironic. Sorry if someone said this but the vikings fleeced us 1 draft spot in 2004 for Vernon Carey when Spielman was here. Now, Spielman is in Minnesota and they fleece the browns to move 1 spot

Trade or not, Tampa goes w/ a CB (Claiborne IMO).

I'd love to see the jest give away 2 or perhaps 3 yrs of decent picks to move up and get Richardson. But, we all know, Tannebaum will appease the meatball by drafting a Cornfed OL... will it be Rieff or Adams?
