The Cleveland Browns traded up to draft running back Trent Richardson, seemingly to help take pressure off quarterback Colt McCoy, but a different QB might be the beneficiary of that choice.
Browns general manager Tom Heckert said that the team is considering trading McCoy after drafting quarterback Brandon Weeden with its second first-round pick, No. 22 overall, from Oklahoma State.
COLTS: Stanford tight end Coby Fleener was reunited with QB Andrew Luck when Indianapolis picked Fleener with the second pick of the second round.
The Colts took another tight end in the third round – Clemson’s Dwayne Allen, the winner of the John Mackey Award as college football’s top tight end.
Fleener and Allen were generally considered the two best players at their position in the draft.
GIANTS: New York will be keeping Mathias Kiwanuka around for a few more years.
The linebacker/defensive end signed a three-year contract extension through 2015, the team announced on Friday.
Kiwanuka was entering the last year of a two-year deal he signed last summer as a free agent, coming off a neck injury that forced him to miss 13 games in 2010.
He had a career-high 84 tackles and 3½ sacks last season and showed he has fully recovered from a herniated disc in his neck. The contract extension is worth $21.75 million, according to reports.
