The Vikings have 10 draft picks in the upcoming NFL Draft.
One of those picks, however, is not a second-round pick.
The Vikings have a first-round pick, two third-round picks and four(!) fourth-round picks. It seems realistic that they could use those picks as possible ammo to gain a second-round pick.
Whether that means trading back from No. 14 (something we know Rick Spielman isn’t afraid to do), or package a chunk of middle-round picks to gain a team’s second-round pick, if there is a player that the Vikings like in the second round, they have the resources to trade up (or back).
The last time the Vikings didn’t have a second-round pick was in the 2014 NFL Draft. However, the team did move up to the last pick in the first round in order to take quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. The same goes for the 2013 draft when the team didn’t make a second-round pick, but had three first-round picks.
We don’t know much going into this weekend’s draft, but we do know that Spielman will be trying to wheel and deal every minute he can.
