Browns acquire #3 pick, presumably for Richardson

7:59 pm - Mike Klis says the Broncos have Doug Martin rated as the #2 RB behind Richardson

7:40 pm - Adam Schefter says the Jags are still trying to move up for Justin Blackmon

7:10 pm - Cleveland has moved up one spot to #3 overall, and they reportedly gave up a fourth-, fifth-, and seventh-rounder to do so. Speculation on NFLN is that they've done so with the intention of drafting Trent Richardson there.

Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! We're going to do our best to cover the day as we did the Peyton Manning developments, which is to say my eyeballs will be on the verge of falling out sometime around the time Andrew Luck goes off the board.

As we did throughout that insanity, we'll post new stuff above the break here, and then move it below Twitter feed-style as new entries push them lower, and as usual, we'll try to keep it to the most reputable of sources. Less newsworthy content (especially analysis, and Raiders news) will often go immediately below the break. I realize that can be annoying, but I just want to keep the important stuff up top. Enjoy the madness!

Non-DT possibilities: Georgia Tech WR Stephen Hill, Alabama CB Dre Kirkpatrick; Baylor WR Kendall Wright. But Broncos also like DTs Jerel Worthy and Kendall Reyes.

This contrasts just a wee bit with all the talk that Jacksonville was desperate to move back out of the #7 spot.
