It's official, the Minnesota Vikings have selected Percy Harvin as their first-round pick. Percy was the 22nd overall pick in the draft.

Minnesota had Michael Oher, Eben Britton, Percy Harvin, and Hakeem Nicks to choose from. They decided that Harvin was the guy for the Vikes.

The question is whether or not Percy can be a legit threat and if he can stay out of trouble.

The risk means this may not be the greatest selection, but it will be a major factor toward building the Vikings offense.

I will have the second-round selection when it comes in a couple hours.

To sum it up, Percy Harvin is officially a Minnesota Viking.
