Dan Pompei sees the possibility of a Vikings trade down still being open if only a crack. Pompei says the Browns are the most likely partner, given their possible desire to block anyone else from stealing Ryan Tannehill, but also throws in the Dolphins who might want Tannehill themselves. A trade down with Cleveland, as Pompei notes, would enable the Vikings to still draft Morris Claiborne or Matt Kalil. Not so much a trade with the Dolphins to 8, although Greg Cosell might disagree at least on Kalil.
Swapping spots with Cleveland would likely not net the Vikings anything more than a second round pick. Not that a second round pick would be anything to sneeze at. Obviously an extra second rounder would be huge for the Vikings. They would then be able to take a pair of secondary players in the second round (assuming they took Kalil in the first), or a DB and a receiver (again assuming Kalil is the first pick), or maybe they could even use their bounty of picks to move up into the first and take, say, Dontari Poe?
We shall see.
