EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman kept dealing on the NFL Draft's final day, sending picks to Detroit and Tennesee in exchange for two mid-round picks in next year's draft.

First, the Vikings traded their fifth-round pick (138th overall) to the Lions in exchange for a fourth-round pick in 2013.

The Vikings and Lions also flopped seventh-round picks in this year's draft, with the Vikings moving up to No. 219 -- where they selected Cal end Trevor Guyton -- and the Lions dropping to No. 223.

Later, the Vikings traded one of their three seventh-round picks (211th overall) to the Titans for a sixth-round pick in 2013.

The Vikings had been due to have back-to-back selections in the seventh round but made the deal after taking North Carolina State linebacker Audie Cole 210th overall.

The Titans then selected defensive end Scott Solomon from Rice with the pick they got from the Vikings.
