Rick Spielman continued his tradition of being very aggressive in making trades, executing two swaps on day one of the draft.
As a result of Spielman’s two trades, the Vikings have no second round selection. As of now. Spielman could still make another move to get back into the second.
As of right now, here are the picks the Vikings have remaining in the draft.
3rd Round (No. 72)
3rd Round from Seahawks (No. 96)
5th Round from Browns (No. 145)
5th Round (No. 148)
6th Round (No. 184)
7th Round (No. 223)
The Vikings gave up a fourth to move back into the first and take Teddy Bridgewater. They acquired an extra fifth by trading one spot with the Browns.
With two picks in the third and two in the fifth, the Vikings can get back into the second if they want. I have a feeling Rick Spielman will look to trade down more than up from here on out though.
But you never know. There could be someone the Vikings like in the second who they would be willing to move up for.
