Talk about Adrian Peterson's future has dominated the headlines for the last few months.

Ever since Peterson was indicted for child abuse and his future at the Vikings thrown into doubt, the star running back has been subjected to trade rumors.

Traded during draft?

And today it was revealed that any projected trade for Adrian Peterson would ultimately be very complex.

Respected NFL insider and ProFootballTalk boss Mike Florio speculated on Monday that Peterson could be traded during the 2015 NFL Draft, with the decision giving the Vikings the best chance to replenish their running back stocks without another team usurping them by knowing their plans in advance.

"If the Vikings decide to trade running backAdrian Peterson, the best time to pull off the swap would arrive when the highest pick Minnesota would be receiving is on the clock," Florio explained on PFT on Monday.

 
"Getting that spot in exchange for Peterson before the draft would operate as a “Hey, everybody, here’s where we may take a running back with that pick!” message to anyone inclined to jump the line."

Interested trade partners 

These are certainly some interesting thoughts from Florio, and should this happen it would make the draft even more entertaining than it already is.

It is well known that the Dallas Cowboys are interested for Adrian Peterson, and the NFC East team could well be the team who deal for the star running back at that point in the draft.

But there are also reportedly other parties interested in a trade for Peterson, with Arizona Cardinals potentially in the mix. Peterson's 'dream scenario' though is supposed to be Dallas, according to a recent report, so we will see what happens with that.

In the meantime, should the Vikings trade away Peterson? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
