If the New York Jets really are interested in moving up from the 16th overall selection in the 2012 NFL Draft to get Alabama running back Trent Richardson -- which has been rumored -- maybe their chances are getting a little better.
Consider this latest news, which has been buzzing across the Twitter-verse:
Just heard the Cleveland Browns could be coming off Trent Richardson even if he's available and looking hard at Justin Blackmon @4..— Tony Pauline (@TonyPauline) April 26, 2012
What Cleveland would do with the fourth overall selection has been a subject of debate. If they keep the pick it has been widely expected that they would grab Richardson, easily the best running back in the draft.
Some are wondering why the Browns would jump on Blackmon, the receiver from Oklahoma State, after passing on Alabama's Julio Jones a year ago. If it helps the Jets, fans of Gang Green won't care.
