The Vikings head into this year's NFL draft with two first-round picks after trading Randy Moss to the Raiders for the No. 7 overall pick earlier this offseason. With significant needs at wide receiver and defensive end, Minnesota has a number of options.
There has been some speculation the team will use its second pick in the first round, No. 18 overall, as a bargaining chip in an effort to move into the top five and grab one of the draft's two elite receivers Michigan's Braylon Edwards and USC's Mike Williams.
However, I'm being told otherwise.
Our scout doesn't expect Minnesota to trade up to get a top receiver; plus, why Pac-Man might slide out of the top 10.
