Vikings GM says expect the team to do some bouncing around in the draft
Minnesota Vikings were not afraid to do some trading last year, and it landed them Cordarrelle Patterson. Well this year GM, Rick Spielman said anything can happen on draft day.
Vikings GM Rick Spielman said Saturday that “everything is a possibility” for the Vikings in the draft and you’d expect such vagueness from a team before the draft. The closest that Spielman came to setting anything in stone were his comments about whether or not the Vikings will be standing pat with the eight picks they currently have in their possession.
“We have eight right now, and a lot of that doesn’t happen until you’re on the clock,” Spielman said, via the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “Heck, last year they pulled me out of a press conference to go get Patterson because you never know. But I really, really think we’re going to do a lot of movement in the draft.”
That is pretty impressive, and it should make the Vikings fans happy. Last year the Vikings did quite a bit and it worked out for them. With a few more great drafts, the Vikings could be hard to stop.
