Vikings trade up for pick 141 with the Colts

The Minnesota Vikings traded up in the fifth round with the Indianapolis Colts. They gave up No. 158 and No. 211 to the Colts for No. 141. The move means the Vikings no longer have a sixth round pick, but that’s a fair price to move up 17 spots in round five.

This marks the third trade that the Vikings have made in this draft, having traded down from both No. 87 and No. 119. General manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah made multiple trades up and down the board to target players that he believed was a value.
