After not trading down for the first two rounds, the Minnesota Vikings have now traded down twice in a row, this time making a deal with a division rival.
This time, the Vikings have made a deal with the Detroit Lions, as they have moved down once again in an effort to collect more picks, grabbing another fifth rounder in the process.
The Vikings are now up to nine picks in this year's draft. . .the two picks they've already made, their third round pick (which is now at #88. . .presumably), a fourth-rounder (#110), two fifth-rounders (#137 and #143), a sixth-rounder (#193) and two seventh-rounders (#228 and #232).
So, we'll be back with the Vikings' next pick at #88.
