EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have two picks in the first round of this year's draft.
That puts them in position to benefit from the potential anxiety of other teams, if they're willing to wait again themselves.
Believe him or not, general manager Rick Spielman said this week the Vikings have been inundated by trade talk for the 23rd and 25th overall selections. The draft starts on Thursday night.
Last year, they parlayed Cleveland's interest in moving up into three extra picks by simply switching one spot with the Browns in the first round from third to fourth. This draft is deep at wide receiver, cornerback, linebacker and defensive tackle, so the Vikings can probably be patient about getting a player they need if they want to add more picks.
