NFL Draft Rumors: Vikings May Trade Back In Second, Third Rounds

The Minnesota Vikings likely aren't going to be trading the third overall pick this week or, if they do, it won't come cheap to the interested party. That doesn't mean that the Vikings aren't going to be interested in trading some of their other picks in the 2012 NFL Draft, however.

General manager Chris Spielman spoke to the media over the weekend about multiple things. One of the topics he touched on, according to 1500 ESPN, was the likelihood of moving back in the second and third rounds.

"The other thing you've got to look at," Spielman said, "is knowing the needs of the teams behind you, because there's a lot of potential for us in the second round and even in the third round to potentially move back if we feel that strong about the depth in those rounds where we can still get a good player and continue to add draft picks. I think that would be something we would be definitely interested in doing."

It'll be interesting to see exactly what happens as things progress closer to Thursday night.
