Tom Pelissero of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities echoes an NFL.com report that the Vikings are unlikely to garner a first-round pick for Percy Harvin.

Pelissero, the most reliable Vikings beat reporter of them all, says he's "consistently heard" Harvin would only net Minnesota a second- or third-round pick. It appears our initial guess of a "second-rounder and change" might even have been optimistic. If the Vikings can seriously only get a third-rounder for Harvin, they may as well deal with him in 2013, let him walk in 2014, and hope he gets paid big bucks so they can get back a 2015 compensatory pick.
