The Browns intend to draft Alabama running back Trent Richardson rather than Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon, sources told Fox Sports insider and NFL Network contributor Jay Glazer.

The Browns gave up their fourth-, fifth- and seventh-round picks (Nos. 118, 139, 211) in this year's draft.

The fourth-round pick going from the Browns to the Vikings was obtained from the Atlanta Falcons in last year's draft-day trade.

The Vikings might try to engineer another first-round trade, Glazer wrote on Twitter.
