The Vikings stayed put with their first two picks, selecting cornerbacks Trae Waynes and linebacker Eric Kendricks, but they slid back a few spots before moving backwards once again.

By dropping from pick #80 to pick #88, the Vikings were able to secure the #143 overall selection in the fifth round.

Rick Spielman, who openly admits to wanting 10 draft selections every year, seems content to move backwards in baby steps and let the board fall to him a little later on in the weekend.
