11:56 AM ET 04.19 | It is officially a week until the draft and this is about when draft rumors and speculation start to ramp up. In this case, Rapoport up. The Minnesota Vikings are looking to move up in NFL Draft from either pick No. 23 or 25, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. Rapoport opines the Vikings could be looking to draft a wide receiver, possibly West Virginia's Tavon Austin or Tennessee's Cordarrelle Patterson. While the report of Minnesota wanting to move up may be true, it is doubtful they package both first-round picks with as many holes as they have. According to draft experts, this year's draft crop lacks elite prospects but has significant depth all the way through the mid rounds. Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com speculated last month that Minnesota may move up to snatch a receiver before the St. Louis Rams

Why trade up with so many wide outs available and so many holes to fill. One of the best receivers that no one is talking much about is ex Vol DaRick Rogers who played his junior season at Tennessee Tech.

Tavon was the best player in college last year and it wasn't even close. Whomever gets him has a future pro bowler.

This is the 3d time today this story has been told, and it still hasn't gotten any more interesting.

Bad move by the Vikings but if there's any team that know's how to screw up a draft...

The Vikings always find a way to goof up.

Hey! That's not nice! Tavon Austin's mom comes here and posts that her son is the best player in college and you rip on her! :)

In one word, whocares.

Tell us more about Tebow and Sanchez.

Listening to their show today they sure hinted at it a lot. They need a deep receiver. They will trade up, maybe with the Jets at 9.

Ya last year they had three pro bowl rookies. What a lousy draft for them.
