Thirty-two picks down, 221 to go.
Rick Spielman and the Minnesota Vikings began the 2017 NFL draft with eight selections — Nos. 48, 79, 86, 121, 129, 160, 199 and 232. Whether by choice or as a result of a failed trade attempt, the Vikings general manager will open the second round with the same eight-pick collection.
Draft selections are no ordinary resource, however. Each pick is assigned a numeric value (chart below) based on how close it is to the top of the list and the round in which it falls. While these figures establish a base point for trade negotiations, they do not account for situational influence.
