Currently in possession of 10 picks in this month's upcoming draft, the Minnesota Vikings are in position to add at least two new starters and several key backups. The team has at least one pick in each round, including three in the fourth round and two in the seventh round.
Often times when teams have such a high number of picks, they will package together mid-round picks to move up and take a player they really love. This could be exactly what the Vikings do, but for now we must project based on what we know.
The Vikings have quietly addressed several needs through free agency, including signing OL Geoff Schwartz, CB Zackary Bowman, TE John Carlson and re-signing players like DTs Letroy Guion and Fred Evans, LB Erin Henderson and WR Devin Aromashodu.
However, the team still has plenty of holes to fill, most prominently at LT, WR, CB and S. The Vikings' 2012 draft class will be the key to how quickly the team can rebound from two straight seasons of missing the playoffs.
