The Browns have acquired the No. 3 overall pick from the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for the No. 4 overall pick and three additional picks in this year's NFL Draft, according to FOXSports.com's Jay Glazer.

The Vikings reportedly will receive the Browns' fourth- (No. 118 overall), fifth- (139) and seventh-round (211) picks.

It is believed to be a preemptive move by Cleveland to prevent another team from trading into the No. 3 spot and selecting Alabama running back Trent Richardson.
