Cleveland Trades Up; Acquires Minnesota Pick

April 26th, 2012

It appears Trent Richardson will not be a Buccaneers running back.

Cleveland just swapped first round picks with Minnesota and Cleveland now holds the No. 3 pick with Minnesota drafting No. 4.

This really means nothing to the Bucs, outside of not drafting Richardson, as the two teams drafting ahead of the Bucs are the same teams.

  4. bucs55 Says:

    We will trade down

  5. canadianbuc Says:

    If we pick Kalil i will be really disappointed if the Vikings pick Mo then I say we gotta go with Blackmon guy looks like a beast and will make our offense more explosive likE TR would of………But still i want Claiborn!!!

  6. @eric Says:

    Bring on LaMichael James to pair with Blount with our 2nd round pick

  7. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Oh well, not really a shocker, just disappointing.

  8. ClayBURN94 Says:

    Another great player the bucs will not be able to grab!! I.E. Calvin Johnson, Adrian Peterson. Unless we trade down with the Bills and get Keuckly I will be dissapointed.

  9. The Dutcher Journal (Pete Dutcher) Says:

    So the Vikings were trying to convince the Browns that the Bucs were going to trade, lol.

  10. bucs55 Says:

    I think we will trade with the bills and we will ether pick up barron or the lb from Boston college

  11. NJBucsFan Says:

    In glad this happened. Get Jacksonville and Buffalo on the phone. I like Barron oh Captn Luke.

  12. hamilton Says:

    draft blackmon

  13. The Dutcher Journal (Pete Dutcher) Says:

    “Told ya so!”

  14. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Where’s Captain Tim? He’s been saying all along he was going in the 20s. He said he’s always right. Go ahead little boy, take your whipping like a man. Admit you were an idiot.

  15. Joe Says:

    Interesting. Hearing Adrian Clayborn on the radio and he said Schiano has told the defense the No.1 priority is stopping the run. Luke Kuechly coming?

  16. DAN Says:

    mo or kuechly

  17. BucsfaninMi Says:

    Just take Kuechly now why trade down? I wouldn’t chance it! He’s worth it!

  18. st. louis Bucs fan Says:

    WOW!!! i wouldnt mind Blackmon and then trade Benn to St. Louis for Jackson. lol stupid idea i know but wut can we do. i just hope we dont take Kalil. we need an impact player and to quote the Vikings “LT arent impact players”.. another stud just outta our reach. BUC IT IM OUT!!!!!!!!!!11

  19. st. louis Bucs fan Says:

    has any1 seen wut the Browns gave up???

  20. Bobby Says:

    Yeah!!!!! Now we can have a sane draft.

  21. Thomas2.2 Says:

    This means a tremendous amount to the Bucs.

    Schiano trying to get to 3 for Richardson caused the Browns to move up to make sure that didn’t happen.

    Dom was under orders to get T Rich and got punked again.

    The Bucs nightmare could be beginning if Minn takes Mo and the Bucs can’t trade back.

    Only solution: Justin Blackmon.

  22. Joe Says:

    The Browns had to cough up four draft picks just to move up one spot.

    No wonder Dominik didn’t pull the trigger. That’s a crazy price.

  23. ClayBURN94 Says:

    You guys are morons!! We have 2 or 3 legit WR’s why the hell would we get Blackmon?!? Glad you guys aren’t the GM. This isn’t Madden, its real Football…

  24. Joe Says:


    Dom was under orders to get T Rich and got punked again.

    Put the bourbon down!

  25. Thomas2.2 Says:

    Anyone going to be excited with Kalil or Kuechly at 5?


  26. st. louis Bucs fan Says:

    WOW!!!!! 4 picks???? thats tooo rich for my blood, i fold!!!! take Blackmon if hes there or Kuechly.. but if we can get 3 picks for a team to move up it may b worth listening to. BUC IT IM OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Not me.

  30. DAN Says:

    imagine what they would have wanted to trade back to 5

  31. Brad Says:

    I’ll take Kuechly all day. He’s who I wanted after Richardson.


    Trade back with Bills for value.

    James/Miller for RB would be awesome.

    Looking forward to a CB/LB/S laden draft.

  33. raphael Says:

    smart move by the Rock star…wanted TR but not at that price. DAYUM !
    LETS GET MOMO !!!!!!!!!!

  34. Rrsrq Says:

    Hopefully the Vikings will let the clock run out again, lol

  35. D Says:

    Thomas? Blackmon?

    You’re an idiot.

  36. Marques Says:

    There is a reason the BROWNS Stink

    Hawaiin it looks like you and the Browns are on the same page. Good luck with that.

    See with a top 5 pick again next year.

    I agree with buc 55 trade down and collect picks. See if we can work out a deal with the bills.

    Personally I like Hightower the most but either Luke or Barron will do just fine as long as we get another 2nd rounder

  37. raphael Says:

    wonder if we will get 4 picks to move down….HMMM

  38. DAN Says:

    raphael, told you it wouldnt be ‘ a third next year and a late round this year’

  39. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Even though it is difficult to understand your writing with all your misspellings and grammatical errors, I think I am able to decipher what you are saying. What’s the reason? Because they drafted an elite back that is the #1 player in the draft (outside of the 2 QB’s)? Really?

  40. raphael Says:

    4 picks = insanity

  41. D Says:

    And now the Jags move to 4….

  42. Bobby Says:

    Thomas….LOL!!! You are such a moron!

  43. Thomas2.2 Says:

    Listen ladies:

    T Rich was the prize of this draft outside of the qbs – like Calvin Johnson in 07.

    Now that Dom got outbid, and I agree that the price was high bc the Browns had 13 picks, the preference is to trade down.

    The problem: if Claiborne goes 4, the entire draft knows you got caught with your pants down and wont offer you squat.

    I believe (and so does everyone else credible) that Blackmon is better value than Kuechly or Kalil. If you draft for need you tend to miss by overlooking red flags, Gerald anyone?

    I like Kuechly at 12-20, but at 5 that is way too little value.

  44. Terry Says:

    Trade down if there is a reasonable offer.

  45. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    In my opinion, the best case scenario for us now is to trade down and get Kuechly, then try to use those extra picks and whatever else to get back in the first round and get Doug Martin.

  46. kaput Says:

    Well, fart. I wanted TR.

  47. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I still think Minnesota is picking Kalil, but if they don’t, we are going to be panicking (I just don’t think we really want Kalil).

  48. Bobby Says:

    I’m actually hoping Vikings take Claiborne because the Bills do want Kalil. I would love a trade with more picks.

  49. Sensiblebuc Says:

    Claiborne or trade down to get Kuechly.

  50. raphael Says:

    claiborne or trade down ….

  51. DAN Says:

    only trade down i want to take is jaguars

  52. DAN Says:

    and only if mo isnt there

  53. Thomas2.2 Says:


    Kalil makes much more sense than Mo, I agree – but many of the “experts” have confirmed that the Vikes had Mo rated higher than Kalil.

  54. Rrsrq Says:

    Don’t be surprised if Bucs have Stephen Gilmore high on their board at 5, just saying. Browns could afford it, they still have 9 picks

  55. snookau Says:

    Now we’ll have 2 dummy cornerbacks. Awesome.

    And still no explosive RB.

  56. Buc fan south Tampa Says:

    Notice that Luck has his actual number on his jersey just like Peyton Manning.? irsay is real good at these signals

  57. BucNeckid Says:

    Griffin goes next (duh)
    Then TRich and then
    Good move for the Vikes
    They wanted out of three and got more picks.
    I still think they take Claiborne.
    The Bucs then will be looking to dance and move out of five to the Dolphins pick and still pick up Kuechly plus a two and a four.

  58. eric Says:

    Vikings trading but staying in front of us means they want mo.

  59. raphael Says:

    wonder what Jacksonville is offering us to get in front of St Louis for Blackmon…?

  60. Matthew Says:

    Claiborne or Trade down and I’m a very happy Buc’s fan! Trade down if we can take Kuechely or Barron

  61. BigLebowski Says:

    dang it!! Now the Bucs may still get ol’ what’s his name that Joe keeps mentioning. And his hard-on will keep growing.

    I’m SICK and TIRED of hearing about how awesome he is.

  62. Bobby Says:

    Vikings trading and staying in front of us means they traded with the team in front of us…nothing more.

  63. The Dutcher Journal (Pete Dutcher) Says:

    ROFLMAO!!!!!! Posers!

  64. The Dutcher Journal (Pete Dutcher) Says:

    BSPN reporting a possible trade, Bucs and Jags

  65. Bobby Says:

    Yessss!!!!! We traded with jax!

  66. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    we just traded down with jax. good move

  67. Matthew Says:

    We just traded Jacksonville

  68. eric Says:

    We must have made an offer to viikes and got outbid.

  69. T. Bass Says:

    Jacksonville is now picking 5th



  71. Brown Bag Says:

    Jax wants Blackmon. Does St Louis skip Morriss and we still get him?

  72. Bobby Says:

    I’m betting Gilmore or Kuechly.

  73. Matthew Says:

    Holy crap we still got a shot at Claiborne and we picked up an extra pick! Dominik doing work!

  74. buccin cane Says:

    how the hell does minnesota get all them picks and all we get is a 4th… must be keukely

  75. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    There were an awful lot of people on this board guaranteeing that we were going to draft this guy, or that guy, etc. Just goes to show that we don’t know anything.

  76. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I think Baron is a possible dark horse as well.

  77. Terry Says:

    You gave up Claiborne for a 4th. Seriously?

  78. Bobby Says:

    We probably take Gilmore.

  79. Matthew Says:

    St. Louis Signed finnegan to monster deal, there’s a shot they pass on Claiborne! If we get him unbelievable. If not Kuechely or Barron are great picks.

  80. Matthew Says:

    WE GET CLAIBORNE Cowboys move to 6. Unbelievable move by dominik we still land the CB and get an extra pick

  81. Matthew Says:

    Or I guess we are taking Barron!!!


    Never seen so many trades out of the gates
