01:04 PM ET 04.19 | NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Thursday night on "NFL Total Access" that the Minnesota Vikings are looking to trade up in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft. They have the ammunition to do so with the No. 23 and No. 25 picks. Mr. RapSheet believes the Vikings would be targeting a wide receiver, likely West Virginia's Tavon Austin or Tennessee's Cordarrelle Patterson. The San Diego Chargers could be a potential trade fit; they want to move down from the No. 11 slot if they can't get the tackle they want. (That could be difficult.) If the Vikings were to trade up, Rapoport believes they would attempt to do so while still likely holding on to their No. 25 overall pick.

Hey, if you're going to give us the same lame story you posted a few hours back, how about at least re-wording it so it's not exactly the same lame story, huh?

Waddaya think?

Mr. RapSheet?



OK - I need to start thinking about a new career.

Why would anyone trade up for a wide receiver? There are plenty of good ones available with just about any pick you have in just about any round.

That's very true but remember, this is the Vikings we're talking about.

You would if that was your only real need. Fill that hole and your good to go. The rest of the draft is just a bonus then.
