With the speculation that the Minnesota Vikings would benefit from trading down in the NFL Draft from the No. 8 spot, fans are wondering who the possible dance partners would be for the team.
In this week’s mailbag, Vikings.com writer Mike Wobschall lists a couple different scenarios that could see the Vikings swap picks with the St. Louis Rams or the Tennessee Titans.
“In addition to holding the No. 2 overall selection, the Rams also have No. 13. They could decide to get splashy by trading up to No. 8 from No. 13 to take home two top 10 picks, with receiver Mike Evans a possible fit at No. 8. This scenario becomes even more likely if the Rams are able to trade back from No. 2.
“The Tennessee Titans lost starting cornerback Alterraun Verner in free agency this offseason. They sit at No. 11 and might feel more comfortable with trading up ahead of Buffalo (No. 9) and Detroit (No. 10) to grab their corner of choice to replace Verner.”
Wobschall admits that these thoughts are pure speculation, but each scenario could benefit both teams.
