Previous Selection: Manti Te’o, LB, Notre Dame
Thanks to the trade that sent disgruntled receiver Percy Harvin to Seattle, this will be the second time the Vikings will be drafting in the first round.
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.
Having already addressed linebacker earlier, the Vikings will likely go with the best available corner or defensive tackle on the board here.
Previous Pick: Colts- Alec Ogletree, OLB/MLB, Georgia
