Per Rapaport, the [url="https://twitter.com/RapSheet/status/325024027636797441"]Vikings are targeting help[/url] at wide receiver and cornerback in the draft after two of their best moved on to Seattle in [url="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/5197/percy-harvin"]Percy Harvin[/url] and [url="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/1165/antoine-winfield"]Antoine Winfield[/url]. A move up in the draft would likely be to target a wide receiver. West Virginia’s [url="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/8402/tavon-austin"]Tavon Austin[/url] could be a suitable replacement for Harvin if the Vikings can find a trade partner to deal with. Austin likely won’t be available by the time Minnesota drafts in the 20′s.
However, Rapaport suggested the Vikings [url="https://twitter.com/RapSheet/status/325025226914140160"]may not be willing to part[/url] with their second first round pick to make the move. With needs at corner and linebacker, losing both first round picks to move up may prove too great a cost. Notre Dame linebacker [url="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/8442/manti-teo"]Manti Te’o[/url], Washington cornerback [url="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/8447/desmond-trufant"]Desmond Trufant[/url] or Boise State cornerback [url="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/8493/jamar-taylor"]Jamar Taylor[/url] could be possible fits for the Vikings at No. 25 overall.

I'd probably be happy to take their #23 and 2nd round pick for our #14 if Star isn't there.

Minny wants a WR and us and Stl Louis are massive threats. Makes you wonder if all the convenient rumors about all the WR prospects swirling around can indeed be pinned on them.

That would be about the perfect draft. I don't know if I see Hunter falling to 44, but this would be nice.

Hunter is graded as a second round prospect, but he's going late first in my opinion. Kid has too many physical gifts to not go in the first. If he didn't have seemingly mental lapses during games where he gives up on routes, doesn't get past the sticks on third down, and drops incredibly easy balls he would be without a doubt the first Wide Receiver off the board. These lapses don't happen that often, but it happens enough to make you ask why. Still love Hunter as a prospect though, and if he somehow was there at 44 and we hadn't addressed WR in the first I feel like you HAVE to take him....

I'll take a damn 3rd.
But realistically could get their 1st and 2nd: Cyprien, Hunter, Brandon Williams

Would love it, and moving down only a few spots would probably be fine with Gettleman so we're not exchanging a dollar for 3 dimes as he said.

reminds me of the trade with the jets a few years back.

philly moves up from #25 and takes our #14 and 6th round pick and we pick up the #25, their 2nd rounder and a 5th rounder.

they got revis, we got beason and kalil in that trade. not too shabby, imo. also came out with CJ in the 3rd (of course jarrett with our original 2nd, but oh well).

i think we could do just as well with this draft, only we'd have a WR that was worth a crap.

By the trade value chart

1.14 = $1,100

1.23 ($760) + 2.22 ($360) = $1,120


About as close to exactly even as you can possibly get but from what Gettleman said I doubt we're going to move off the 14 spot, either up or down.
