    8th position will give us a great player

    Since it's a great draft to trade back, then there is less demand to move up, so it will be cheaper. Just saying a team that knows it's a great draft to trade back in will take less in return than a team any other year.

    If Khalil Mack is there at 8, take him. If he's taken before we pick,then I wouldn't be against trading down.

    trading back wont be that easy .with a deep draft why would a team give up picks to jump up to 8th pick ? you can get an o lineman anywhere in the 1st 2nd or 3rd round .if mack, barr are there maybe you find a taker....i think we will not find ant taker...its a deep draft ...
    why would we give up getting the top olb or cb ......i just dont get it

    There will actually be a few teams willing totrade up to 8. There will still be at least 1 if not 2 of the QBs still on the board,and we do not want to reach for these QBs..if Mack and Gilbert are off the board then trade down to at least 11 and get an extra 2nd and 3rd round pick...that gives you 10 picks plus you still get a shot at a top 15 player.... best case scenerio

    y would Browons jump 1 spot 2 year's ago for guy they can have get at 4?

    Seriously, who cares about the value chart? If a team values a player enough to trade up for him, and seriously believe the team they're attempting to trade with will take him, they'll be willing to give up more than what the chart says. How do teams value their picks when they have an abundance of them? They're probably more willing to ignore the chart when they have picks to spare.

    I stand by what I said earlier; the 2 top offensive tackles are very valuable to many of the teams picking in the teens to twenties, but those teams might not want (nor have the ability TO) trade up to get them. If they are still there at #8, it is a whole new ballgame for both the Vikings AND those teams.

    There will be multiple teams interested in securing "there" guy, and it will provide us a lot of options.

    even with a team that has 800 piont value ..they will need to find 600 pionts to use ...only way to get that would be give up their 3rd and2nd pick unless they have muliply picks not many teams do ..unless they give future picks ..in other words teams would be given up alot ...we will see

    2014 NFL Draft Trade Value Chart

    Obviously, these values are not set in stone, but do still provide a guideline for what to expect.

    The Giants were terrible last year because their OL was terrible and injured. They may be willing to make that move for Mathews or Robinson, but moving from 12 to 8 is only a difference of 200 points, roughly, their 3rd round pick. Definitely NOT a 2nd and 3rd.

    If you want to land a 2nd, you need to find a trade partner around 350 to 550 points behind us...the Jets at 18 are 500 points back, that would be one 2nd round pick.

    What do you guys think of this scenario? Is this TOO far back? I'm saying the 49ers have more picks than needs, and could really use a playmaker on offense to push them over the top. They have tried to add a weapon many times and failed. IF Watkins is there, they might be tempted to make the big move, from their #30 all the way to #8 to get in front of BUF and DET who are both thought to be looking WR. That is nearly 800 points, or enough to ask for both of their 2nds and one of their 3rds, giving us 3 picks in the 2nd AND 3rd rounds!!!
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!
