Chiefs, Seahawks, Vikings Trade Partners?

This is just speculation on my part but the Seahawks are looking to trade down and out of the first round. Obviously, the Vikings would really like to be able pick up a QB and a  OL/DL that could help them sooner than later. Many people seem to think that the Minnesota Vikings will try to trade down from the #12 spot to acquire a 3rd rounder. VP of Player Personnel, Rick Spielman, has a history of trading down and acquiring more picks.

So what would it take to get the Seahawks' #25 draft pick? There are a lot of variables in this situation.

The 2011 NFL Draft QB Prospects:

Cam Newton, Auburn


Newton is a physical freak, for sure but only one season playing in a BCS conference. Throwing accuracy could be an issue. Also is probably the least accustomed to NFL verbiage and offenses of any of the top QB prospects in the draft (See ESPN's piece with Newton and Gruden). Also has little experience in a pro offense since he worked mostly out of the shotgun in college.

Timberwolves Off Season Update #1

2010 NBA Draft:


Wolves, as expected, took Wesley Johnson of Syracuse.  It's my opinion that Johnson was the right pick. Many people seemed to like Cousins at this slot and I think he'd have been a fine choice as well. However, the Wolves had several areas of need, PF not being one of them, and Johnson was clearly as good if not better overall value as Cousins. Beyond value, Johnson is exactly what the team needed.
