The Minnesota Vikings pulled some great picks at the 2012 NFL Draft. Here is how the draft played out for the Vikings:

Minnesota vikings Seventh-Round Picks

The Minnesota Vikings are seen as a team in transition trying to keep in stride with teams like the Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears. The NFC North is dubbed one of the toughest divisions in the game. The Vikings hope their 2012 Draft Class will prepare them for the gridiron of the North.
If the Vikings maintain good health, they are likely to boast a much better team on the field this year relative to the 2011 Vikings team. With Christian Ponder, Adrian Peterson and Percy Harvin, the Vikings will bring a very dynamic offense to the field.
