The 2014 "mid-round pick" the Vikings are acquiring as part of the Percy Harvin trade is expected to be a third-rounder.
It means the Vikings are coming away with a first-, second- and third-day pick in exchange for their No. 1 receiver. It's still not equal value for a player of Harvin's caliber, but far exceeds what the Dolphins received for Brandon Marshall. It also betters the package Randy Moss fetched in 2005. It's a small price to pay for an elite receiver still two months shy of his 25th birthday.
