My 2013 mock draft

to preface, this draft is without any Free Agency moves, and assuming we keep all of our players whose contracts are expiring this year.

That means that Percy Harvin, Toby Gerhart, Joe Webb, Everson Griffen, and Jared Allen are all staying in Minnesota. here are the picks I have the vikings making: (warning, trades involved)

#23 overall pick traded, along with both seventh round picks and #23 in 5th round for 34th overall, and 65th overall

#34 overall pick (2:2)used to select DeAndre Hopkins, Wide Receiver, Clemson University

#54 overall pick (2:22) used to select Kewann Short, Defensive Tackle, Purdue university

#65 overall pick (3:1) used to select Jelani Jenkins, Linebacker, University of Florida

#85 overall pick (3:21)used to select J.C. Tretter, Offensive Guard, Cornell University

#119 overall pick (4:23) used to select Sanders Commings, Cornerback, University of Georgia

#133 overall pick (5:5) traded for #176 overall and 2014 5th round pick

#176 overall pick (6:16) used to select Rodney Smith, Wide Receiver, Florida State University

I think this mock follows the needs of the team, while sticking to Rick Spielman's philosophy of trading around to take advantage of the most amount of talent, while supplying himself with picks next year. sorry if the formatting is weird. also, for a key (round:pick)
