The season's over. The dream is gone.
But there's always next season.
And one of the highlights that kick-starts next season is the NFL draft. More specifically, the first round, which is the portion that typically attracts the most attention.

But there are plenty of needs on this roster that could warrant a first-round pick.
This slideshow features 10 players Minnesota should consider taking with the 23rd overall pick, if they are available. The list includes players who could conceivably be available at No. 23.
The players are listed in order based upon their perceived value not only as individual talents, but also relative to what Minnesota needs.
