With the 2020 NFL Draft less than three weeks away, CBS Sports recently took a look at possible scenarios for teams looking to move up or down later this month.

Bryan DeArdo of CBS Sports included the Vikings in his list of 10 potential trades, as he had Minnesota and Baltimore agreeing to a deal.

DeArdo proposed a trade through which the Ravens would receive the 22nd overall pick by sending the Vikings the 28th and 92nd overall selections.

DeArdo wrote:

The Vikings, who are also expected to move around in the first round, would pick up an extra draft pick while also keeping [two] first-round picks. Minnesota needs both of those picks to address their needs at receiver and cornerback after [trading] Stefon Diggs and losing Trae Waynes earlier this offseason.

Minnesota currently has two first-round selections - Nos. 22 and 25 - and would still end up with two picks on Day 1 in DeArdo's scenario, which would give the Vikings a total of 13 picks with the addition of the 92nd pick. That also would make six selections in the first 105 spots.

The list of the Vikings current 12 draft picks can be found here.
