2013 Minnesota Vikings Draft Details:
It's all Minnesota sports fans have been talking about. The Vikings draft, the new Vikings Nike Jersey's and the MN Wild making it to the playoffs (shh). Experts have even given the Vikings High grades on the NFL Draft. We couldn't be more thrilled! We watched Minnesota go bold and pick three players in the first round, with the moves made by analysts and Vikings general manager Rick Spielman.
All of these three players were considered first-round talents. The Minnesota Vikings were so excited to get this! Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd and Tennessee wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson were top choices.
