Vikings sit out 1st round, prepare for busy day on Friday

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) Minnesota Vikings GM Rick Spielman is preparing for a busy second day of the NFL draft after staying quiet in the first round.

The Vikings did not have a first-round choice on Thursday night after trading it to the Eagles last August to acquire quarterback Sam Bradford. Even though Spielman has a history of trading up aggressively, he held tight this time around.

It turns out that he wasn't blowing smoke when he said on Tuesday that a trade up into the first round was unlikely. The Vikings have three picks in the second and third rounds on Friday night, including No. 48 overall in the second round and Nos. 79 and 86 in the third round.
