Vikings Make Multiple Trades in 3rd Round

EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings made multiple moves in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft on Friday.

First, Minnesota traded its 81st overall pick to Detroit in exchange for the Lions 88th overall pick and the 204th overall pick, which will fall in the sixth round.

Detroit selected Boston College safety Will Harris at No. 81.

The Vikings then sent the 88th overall pick and the 209th (sixth round) to Seattle in exchange for the 92nd and 159th overall selections. The 159th will fall in the fifth round.

Seattle selected Utah LB Cody Barton at 88th.

Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman couldn't resist another trade, or another, however. He agreed to send the 92nd selection to the New York Jets to acquire the 93rd and 217th overall picks.

The Jets selected Southern Cal T Chuma Edoga 92nd.

Fourthly, Spielman dealt the 93rd pick to Baltimore for the 102nd (third round), 191st and 193rd (both in the sixth round)

The Ravens tabbed Notre Dame WR Miles Boykin.

The deals are the 27th, 28th, 29th and 30th draft-day trades the Vikings have made since Spielman became GM in 2012. That number does not include swaps involving players and picks that occurred before or after a draft.
