NEW YORK (AP) - The Cleveland Browns have moved up one spot in the NFL draft, from fourth overall to third, in a trade with the Minnesota Vikings.

Minnesota also gets picks in the fourth, fifth and seventh rounds from the Browns.

The Vikings had said they were willing to move out of the third spot after Indianapolis said it would take Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck and Washington _ which moved up to second overall from sixth in a huge earlier trade with St. Louis _ said Baylor QB Robert Griffin III was its choice.

More trades could be coming Thursday night because the rookie wage scale has made the cost of first-round picks much lower.
