NFL Draft Rumors: Vikings Looking To Possibly Trade Down Again, According To Report

The Minnesota Vikings have already shaken things up by making a huge trade less than an hour before the 2012 NFL Draft is set to begin. They traded their third overall pick to the Cleveland Browns for the fourth overall pick along with three other lower round selections.

They might not be done, though. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports on Twitter that the Vikings might be looking for yet another trade down, this time with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Minnesota still open to trade down again. One of the possible suitors Jacksonville. Owner Shad Kahn covets Justin Blackmon. They will not overpay though.

The Jaguars currently hold the seventh overall selection. The strategy seems to be to stockpile a bunch of draft picks for the Vikings, and a trade up to fourth from seventh would cost a pretty good amount including more higher round picks than Cleveland gave up.
