Vikings general manager Rick Spielman held his pre-NFL Draft press conference yesterday and said that there is no one position that he considers off limits.
The comment comes a day after reports that the team is one of a few that is looking to trade up if a top offensive tackle prospect starts to fall. Minnesota holds the 14th overall selection tomorrow evening, but many rumors suggest that pick could be up for sale to either move the Vikings up into better position for an offensive lineman or back for a late first defensive talent and then maybe a later pick to grab a developmental o-lineman. In the past nine drafts, the Vikings have used their first round pick on an offensive lineman twice.
Don’t forget to join us tomorrow evening live from Buffalo Wild Wings in Onalaska for our 2021 NFL Draft Show. I’m looking forward to working with both Jordy and John breaking down another year of high first round drama.
