With additional ammunition, I projected the Vikings to select two wide receivers in the first round of a post-Harvin mock draft, building onto a desperately bleak receiving corps.
Shortly after, the Vikings re-signed Jerome Simpson to a one-year, $1.35 million contract, with a $500,000 signing bonus and $250,000 workout bonus (via Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com).
Spielman then landed one of the biggest free-agent prizes by signing Greg Jennings to a five-year, $47.5 million contract ($18 million guaranteed), according to ESPN's Josina Anderson. Former teammate and Viking quarterback Brett Favre reportedly helped convince Jennings to come to Minnesota.
With some life pumped back into the Vikings offense, the team will most likely focus at least one—or both—of its first-round draft picks on defense, waiting for future rounds to add depth at receiver.
With our attention previously focused heavily on the early rounds of the draft, we take a look at potential receiver options at each stage of the seven-round event.
