The 2013 NFL schedule release has been a lot of fun. Now it's time to return to our regularly scheduled draft rumor programming.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Thursday night on "NFL Total Access" that the Minnesota Vikings are looking to trade up in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft. They have the ammunition to do so with the No. 23 and No. 25 picks.

Mr. RapSheet believes the Vikings would be targeting a wide receiver, likely West Virginia's Tavon Austin or Tennessee's Cordarrelle Patterson. The San Diego Chargers could be a potential trade fit; they want to move down from the No. 11 slot if they can't get the tackle they want. (That could be difficult.)

If the Vikings were to trade up, Rapoport believes they would attempt to do so while still likely holding on to their No. 25 overall pick.

No it wouldn't. Those 2 first are low end of the draft. Why would a team take 2 of them for a Top 5 pick....

because the top end talent isnt that great this year. the real value in this draft is in the 20s

You're wrong.. those 2 low end firsts would get you to 13 where the Buccaneers sit, if they wanted to get to the top 5, they are talking those, a 2nd this year AND next years first.

i think youre overvaluing a top 5 pick. its not worth near as much as what it used to be. i also dont believe they will look to move that far up. the report says they want to hold onto pick 25 so theyre probably looking to swap some picks and move up into the teens

Why wouldn't they just sign Victor Cruz? Oh that's right because there's collusion.

Your wrong. A top 5 pick is more valuable now than what it used to be. The fact you can sign a top 5 pick now for far less guaranteed money , 5 year contracts and theyvcan't renegotiate till after the third year  or hold out, has put a premium on those picks.

Haha...a head-scratcher indeed.

Those two picks can get them to nbr 8 (probably have to add a throwaway pick to it.)

Old chart has value at 760 and 720.   8 is worth 1400.

Go get Bridgewater.   Do what it takes.

This should be stickied.

There\'s a very real chance the Bucs waive [Revis] before next season. At the very least, it will be a discussion worth having.

ehh forgot about the no renegotiating and no holding out clauses. dont all 1st rounders get the 5year guarantee anyway? or is the first 20

Agree. But the Vikes would have to be very desperate to make that deal. It's just a routine smokescreen story becaruse they have the extra pick.
