Biggest Needs

Cornerback

Middle Linebacker

Defensive Tackle

Wide Receiver

 

Thanks to the trade that sent disgruntled receiver Percy Harvin to Seattle, the Vikings will be making two selections in the first round, and with plenty of impact players still on the board, a solid first-round could help the Vikings not only make a repeat trip to the playoffs, but also challenge the Green Bay Packers for the division title.

Though they did sign Greg Jennings this offseason, the Vikings could still use another receiver to help Christian Ponder maximize his abilities while also taking some pressure off of Adrian Peterson. Adding a cornerback will be priority at some point in the first-round after the team cut longtime stalwart CB Antoine Winfield this offseason.

 

Who should the 49ers select with the #31 pick in the 2013 draft?
