The Vikings are on many pundits' radar as having a potential to move up because the Vikings have two first round picks, and the Vikings have moved before. Other than that, it is just speculation.
If the Vikings waste high picks to move up or reach with a first or second round pick instead of going for BPA, they will be rolling some bad dice.
Please don not trade up! Too costly for what we could get.
Down, on the other hand, I would be happy with. Use the 23, trade down with the 25 into the second round and pick up an extra pick or two. Value is there.
BTW the reason I say trade the 25 rather than the 23 is on the off chance that that stud WR does drop to us... the Colts would definitely take him at 24.
We will take Teo and Patterson.
Well, no Teo but to get Floyd,Rhodes and Patterson.
So we *did* end up trading up... INTO the first round for our third pick.
And we got three first round talents, immediate starters at positions of need.
Can't do much better than that. Assuming they all work out, of course.
Can't believe Floyd dropped so far. Wonder why that was.
Great move taking him.
