It wasn’t a huge surprise that Vikings General Manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah traded out of the 12th overall pick in order to gather more selections over the course of the draft, but the team he traded with was a bit unexpected.
The Lions moved up from No. 32 and sent that pick, No. 34 and No. 66 to the Vikings so they could grab wide receiver Jameson Williams. There’s an adage about not trading within the division, but Adofo-Mensah told Peter King in this week’s Football Morning in America that he doesn’t fully subscribe to it.
