    That's it in a nutshell. If a "must have player isn't there at #7, I'm expecting them to trade down. Especially if Quinn is availablw at #7.
    I foresee something like that happening also. If we can find someone that is willing to give up something valuable, I expect them to try and get more day 1 picks.

    Don't disregard either that there could be trades involving players. And that is all the way through the draft. Remember they did it last year when they gave away a pick for A. Hicks

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Re: Draft Trade a reality?

    Trading down has always been the best option.
    Haven't said that since about a day after the '06 regular season.
    This is the first time I've seen mention of another team that may be willing to actually do it.

    Vikings | Team could trade No. 7 overall draft pick

    Don Seeholzer, of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, reports Minnesota Vikings president of player personnel Rick Spielman said that he has talked to teams that are interested in trading up to acquire the Vikings' No. 7 overall draft pick and one team that is interested in trading down to it. Spielman said, "If anything happens, more than likely it wouldn't happen until draft day, and probably not until we're on the clock."

    If im not mistaken, this means that he doubts we'll be trading up. But i love the sound of us being able to trade down. Ideally (and maybe fantasy land) we can trade dwon to 9, pick up an extra 2nd/3rd rounder, then down again to 15, pick up another 2nd/3rd rounder and select robert meachem. Then use those picks acquired through trading to select another high rated WR and address the other needs...ill be happy with that!!

    I think there are several players that the Pats would like. Landry for one. Also I would not hold it against them wanting AP. Rememeber that Dillon is gone and they liked having a 1-2 punch at RB. Also A DEOR even a WR that they covet. They are OK at WR bit not great.

    Trade up and get a true franchise player in WR or RB . . . OR . . . trade down and pick up great value players!!

    Re: Draft Trade a reality?

    This is the first draft in a long time where I am completely OK with damn near any scenario that will come out of our first round draft pick.

    1) Trade up.
    There are only two players that I think we would trade up for.
    CJ or Thomas.
    I doubt we get either, but if we do I will be thrilled!

    2) Stay put.
    There are a decent number of high impact players in the top seven picks.
    If we stay put at least one of them will be guaranteed to be there.
    Heck, it may even be AP.

    3) Trade down.
    There are some pretty deep positions in this year's draft, including our biggest need of WR.
    Trading down would give us one if not two more quality players.

    The only thing that would upset me is a reach in the top 10.
    If we want someone who doesn't warrant a top ten pick, trade out.
    Otherwise, I think whoever we pick up this year will be a positive addition to the Vikings.

    Agreed, their are a lot of scenarios that could play out very well for us (unfortunately this somewhat speaks to our needs).
    I have no clue where the Vikes are going to go with this thing, the least likely does seem to trade up.
    Unless Calvin slips a couple spots and becomes "reachable"... or maybe Thomas as you say.
    I don't seem them trading up for a QB or RB.

    It should be a very interesting day tomorrow and give us some more insight as to where the front office thinks are program is at.

    Exactly how I feel. I'm a big fan of Thomas and of coarse CJ. I can see giving up a lot more to get CJ than Thomas but would be thrilled to get either one.

    I think we will probably end up picking at 7 and should get a very good player who will make a difference for years to come. If that is Landry,so be it. He's a beast.

    The Vikings are fortunate to have a lot of flexibility in this draft. I am pumped and stoked. I expect the Vikings to have a good draft. I expect a few surprises. I hope they are pleasant.
