I saw this article over at espn.com today talking about Julio Jones and the AFC West. It appears as if both the Chargers, who pick at 18th, and the Chiefs, who pick 21st, could both be target Alabama's Julio Jones due to concerns with their WR cores. However, Julio Jones appears to be having an outstanding combine, putting up very impressive numbers that are cementing his position in the top half of the draft. If San Diego or KC want him, they'll have to go get him. It's believed that the most likely landing spot would be at #14 to St. Louis, who are desperate for a play maker for Sam Bradford. Also, San Diego has 2 picks in the 2nd and 3rd rounds (50, 61, 82, and 89 overall). These picks hold values of 400, 292, 180, and 145 respectively according to the trade value chart. The Vikings #12 overall pick hold a value of 1200. In order for them to swap from #18 to #12 would require a value of 300, which would be #61 overall and a low pick, or both their 3rd rounders and we'd give up another lower pick. This would allow us to recoup some of our draft picks and take a player lower in the draft if the players we are targeting at #12 are unavailable.
