The first round of the 2012 NFL Draft had plenty of drama as several teams made trades. In fact every pick from No. 2 to No. 7 overall moved from their original team at some point.

The biggest trade of the night was Minnesota dropping one spot from No. 3 to No. 4 in a trade with Cleveland that netted the Vikings three other Browns choices in the fourth, fifth and seventh rounds. The Browns took Alabama RB Trent Richardson with the No. 3 pick, while the Vikings were still able to get Southern California T Matt Kalil at No. 4.

Dallas made a net move of eight spots from No. 14 to No. 6 in a deal with St. Louis to get LSU defensive back Morris Claiborne.

In total, there were eight trades consummated during the first round. Here is the list of those eight deals (the NFL numbers trades starting with the new league year, so trades 1-9 involve other deals, including the Philadelphia-Atlanta deal that sent DB Asante Samuel to the Falcons for Atlanta’s seventh-round pick that was previously announced but not finalized until Thursday).
