    Vikings own #23 and #25, lets say they're interest in player unknown at #10.. the two who stand out are Tavon Austin & Xavier Rhodes. Vikings could use Austin to replace Percy, Austin is flying up the boards and Vikings don't have any receivers besides Jennings (who isn't young by any means). Vikings also don't have any CBs that are noteworthy, perhaps Rhodes stands out for them and they move up for him.

    My question is, Vikings call and offer #23 & #25 for our #10 - do you accept?
    According to most draft trade charts, we'd be getting better value. So, we may need to throw in our 4th, which wouldn't bother me.

    I would do this deal, depending who's on the board. I could very well see Star, Ansah, Milliner, and Warmack all off the board. We'd have so many options with #23, #25, and #40. We could go something like Desmond Trufant (#23), Tank Carradine (#25), & Larry Warford (#40).

    What do you all think?

    There are a lot of players that I really like, but I don't like at the 10 spot. I would absolutely make that trade.

    Of course I trade 1 1st rd pick for 2 1st rd picks ... there is some magically allure surrounding top draft picks, like a high pick will be a superstar. That's just not true. Most high picks don't pan out either (at least not in the franchise changing way people seem to expect).

    Its really a roll of the dice in the draft, whether you pick at #1 or 32. The higher draft picks are only worth more because you have more options to choose from, not because the talent us really that much better.

    So having 2 picks increases your chances of hitting it big. So I'd take the 2.

    If Milliner slips to us somehow, the Vikings might go for that trade.

    I still don't see any team giving up that much though. But yes, I'd take that trade in a heartbeat.

    If Milliner falls to us, would the Titans still pull the trigger? Or even Ansah?

    Also I wouldn't be surprised if Cooper or Warmack fell to us, remember DeCastro last year and all of his pre draft hype?

    I could see them moving up for X as well. It's unlikely Rhodes will get past #11 SD (lost Jammer and Cason), #12 Dolphins (lost Sean Smith), #13 Bucs (no CBs).
