Not sure why...maybe they thought someone was going to try and move up and steal Richardson in the #3 spot

The rumor was New England was going to move up and pick Richardson, that could have been the reason the Browns moved up.

Not sure why?  They got the player they wanted along with 4th, 5th, and 7th round picks which they used to trade back up into the first round. 

Pretty shrewd move IMO (which is something the Vikings are NOT known for).  They made Cleveland pay a price to make sure no one else took that spot and grabbed Richardson.
