Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said multiple teams were after the pick, even hours before the draft. Holmgren also stressed that he urged general manager Tom Heckert and head coach Pat Shurmur not to let Richardson slip away. "You don't want to be up there, really," Holmgren said. "But we were up there so it was very, very important who we chose there. That's why we targeted Trent. We didn't want to lose him."

Now, if you have two guys that are (really close), then we'd have a discussion on which one to take."
