Great move by the Vikings.
I think it's their #4 overall pick, plus the 5th and 7th rounders.

Nice little earner for the Vikings.. basically picking up 2 free picks.

talk of another team trading up for the player they wanted, they must really want him to give up 3 picks.



Have no clue who the **** packers will draft

So the Bucs or whoever can trade for the 3rd and take Richardson off their hands. Im presume Vikings told the browns that somebody was trying to trade for the 3rd pick to take Richardson, so it force their hands

Vikings get the 1, 4, 5, 7 picks according to Schefter on twitter for no 3 pick...

where the Vikings ever considering Richardson??? most mocks I've seen them going for Kalil with Richardson ending up in Cleveland anyways....

suppose if they really want him better safe than sorry but still...

Great move by the Vikings.

They can still draft their man (either Kalil or Claiborne) at number 4 and they get an extra three picks for moving down only one slot.

Who knows they could still trade down again and acquire even more picks.

Yeah it seems they gave up the 4th rounder too.. fairly hefty price to pay!

Price is high but they have the 1st later on too and still have a pick in every round with two in the 6th and 7th.
