California receiver, Keenan Allen
Percy Harvin's explosiveness and play-making ability will not be replaced, but trading him was a brilliant business move. Harvin made it clear that he was unhappy in Minnesota and would not be re-signing with the Vikes when his contract expired at the end of the 2013 season. Vikings ownership recognized this and squeezed a first round pick out of Seattle. They then got the next best thing in free agency: Greg Jennings.
Even with the addition of Greg Jennings, Minnesota still needs help on the outside for developing quarterback Christian Ponder and to draw attention away from the reigning MVP, Adrian Peterson.
Michael Jenkins was lost in free agency. Jerome Simpson re-signed for another year but questions about his production, concentration and hands will still loom over his head until he plays up to his potential.
A nice surprise will be second-year slot receiver Jarius Wright, who actually played well as a rookie last year after Harvin suffered a season-ending ankle injury. In his only start of the season, Wright recorded three catches, 90 yards and one touchdown against Green Bay in week 17.
Wright has the versatality to be a poor man's Percy Harvin and line up all over the field in 2013. Still, the Vikings are in desperate need of a No. 2 receiver to line up opposite of Jennings. They might choose to address this need in round two, but if they do decide to take a receiver in round one, look for Cal's Keenan Allen to be the guy.
