Ryan Mathews off the board; trades aplenty

Most mock drafts had the Texans taking Fresno State running back Ryan Mathews at No. 20. That's no longer a possibility, as the San Diego Chargers just took Mathews with the 12th pick of the draft after moving up in a trade with the Miami Dolphins.

The Broncos then traded back for the second time tonight, swapping picks with the Philadelphia Eagles at No. 24 and picking up more picks in the process. The Eagles used the pick on Michigan defensive end Brandon Graham.

There have now been trades at three consecutive picks. The Seahawks are on the clock at No. 14. The Texans' pick is coming up fast.
