If two of the top three backs are gone, what do you guys think the chances are of the Vikings trading #7 to Arizona for #8 and another pick. It sounds like Arizona really wants one of the top three, assuming they don't trade for a back before the draft, and the Vikings could easily take one of them. Do you guys think that this is plausible?

But the threat might be enough to make them want to trade up with us. Like we did with Miami last year.

i DO think some deal will go down between us and the cards though. bennett for boldin, picks for picks, something.

dennt greene has no background i nthe nfl except for his history with the vikes. that's where he'll cut his deal, with his old assistant tice.

Green coached with the niners, and his cousin or brother or somethings is a higher up with cleveland(Hence all the trades with cleveland while he was w/vikes).....so he does have some connections, not to mention billick and dungy.

Denny's son was with Cleveland, but he has since been fired, so I don't think Denny still has that Cleveland connection.
I can see the Vikes trading up or down depending on what happens. I just hope they don't give up the #18 to go up.

I beleive that as well ... bennett + a pick for boldin seems like the idea
I'm good with that ... and I'm starting to wonder if we trade O.Smith too , that we might take a RB with the #7 if the top prospects DJ & Merriman are gone

I'm thinking we would take a runningback at number 7 is we trade Bennett for Boldin. I'd definitely be in favor of that. Possibly trade Onterrio and a fourth rounder for a second rounder which would give us more flexibility in getting Nugent.
