2016 NFL Draft: Minnesota Vikings Trade With Miami Dolphins

New, comments
Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

It took until the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, but the Minnesota Vikings have made their first trade of draft weekend, pulling off a deal with the Miami Dolphins

You can see the particulars of the trade in the right-hand sidebar.

The Vikings pick up two mid-round picks in the 2017 NFL Draft in order to make this trade with the Dolphins. Miami used the 86th overall pick they got from Minnesota to select Rutgers wide receiver Leontee Carroo.

UPDATE: The "conditions" surrounding the fourth-round pick is that it will be Miami's lowest fourth rounder. If the Dolphins have a compensatory pick in the fourth round in 2017, it will be that selection. Otherwise, it will be their regularly allotted fourth-round selection.

This also means that the Vikings have traded out of the third round entirely and, barring a trade up, out of the remainder of Day 2 of the 2016 NFL Draft.

At this point, here are the picks the Vikings have remaining:

Round Pick Overall How Acquired
4 23 121 Own selection
5 23 160 Own selection
6 5 180 Acquired from San Francisco 49ers (Gerald Hodges trade)
6 11 186 Acquired from Miami Dolphins (draft day deal)
7 19 240 Acquired from Buffalo Bills (Matt Cassel trade)
7 23 244 Own selection

This also means that the Vikings already have nine selections in the 2017 NFL Draft.

What do you think about this deal, ladies and gentlemen?
