Just a quick note. V. Jackson is rated as a 3rd round prospect on ESPN.

The Vikes may have less needs, I think they want DJ deep down, and not sure if anyone in the pick between us and them would take him.
I just don't see it happening. If I was Tampa or MN, and I really did want Gardner, and I knew the skins were asking for a 3rd rounder all this time, why wouldn't I just give my third rounder to the skins, get Gardner, and still get whoever I wanted in the draft? I just think putting myself in their shoes, I'd rather give up a third rounder than trade down from a spot where I'll probably be able to get whoever I want. I think this is consistent with most draft pick value charts I've seen. I don't think a third rounder plus #9 would get the skins up to #5 (bucs), so why would Gardner plus #9 work, if that's all Gardner would cost them? I guess Minnesota could be an outside shot because it's only 2 spots, but I don't know that we get Williams at #7 with what I've heard about how high some of the top teams are on him.

As for saving on cap and wanting to trade down to get who they want: Again, I'd rather use my third on Gardner and trade down indepently of that. That would allow them to get who they want later in round 1, acquire a second rounder for the #5 or #7 pick, and get Gardner for the third rounder. I just can't help but think that in any situation, they could do better than trading down for Gardner because #5 and #7 command a pretty high price.
