The Minnesota Vikings have done a great job thus far in the draft at addressing the positions of biggest need, by selecting a left tackle, safety and cornerback.

The next step should be to take the best wide receiver available in order to give second-year quarterback Christian Ponder much needed weapons.

The Vikings currently hold nine picks on Day 3. They include three picks in the fourth round (No. 118, No. 128 and No. 134), plus back-to-back fifth-round picks (No. 138 and No. 139) and four picks in the sixth and seventh rounds combined (No. 175, No. 210, No. 211, No. 223).

With so many picks, trading up is nearly inevitable. I would not be surprised to see the Vikings move up early in the fourth round to take a guy they feel really strong about.

The following are seven guys the Vikings should be looking at to help them on Day 3.
