Browns trade up to 3rd spot to nab Alabama RB Trent Richardson

During the NFL off-season, Cleveland Browns fans had heard the name of QB Robert Griffin III as the player that the team coveted. But they were not going to beat the Washington Redskins out for his services at #2.

So, the Browns braintrust turned to trading their number-4 spot to the Minnesota Vikings to gain the third spot to get another need, a running back.

They drafted the best runner in the NFL Draft in Alabama’s Trent Richardson.

They weren’t going to let their next choice get away and traded three later round picks to the Vikings to get a playmaker for their anemic offensive attack. The Vikings received picks in the fourth round (# 118), fifth round (# 139) and the seventh round (#211).

Richardson is a dynamic and explosive running back who should help an offense who scored just four rushing touchdowns and 218 points in a 4-12 2011 season.

Eventhough Richardson is just 5-foot-9, 228-pounds, some media experts think that he could be the next Greg Pruitt in Cleveland at running back. He rushed for 1,679 yards last year at Alabama.

Some Browns fans were mad that the team did not address another need in the first round, wide receiver. The team passed up Julio Jones of Alabama and Justin Blackmon of Oklahoma State.
