Setting Career Expectations for Each Member of the Vikings 2013 Draft Class

The 2013 NFL draft is in the books and the Minnesota Vikings have to be thrilled with how things played out for them, making three first-round selections for the first time since 1967.

With the lack of superstars available at the skill positions, the 2013 draft was expected to be unpredictable, and it certainly played out that way. 

The Vikings brass was giddy on Friday morning after getting three players that most draft experts figured would be gone by the time Minnesota made its first pick.

In the avalanche of draft analysis that always arrives in the days following the draft, the consensus has been that the Vikings had anywhere from an A- to a B draft. Those grading the Vikings on the lower end didn't like the idea of trading four picks to New England to move back into the first round. 

Only time will tell if the Vikings got enough value in return, but most every Vikings fan is ecstatic about a draft that should provide not only just three starters at a minimum, but three players who have a chance to be high-impact starters.

A good rule of thumb is not to critique any NFL draft for three years, but who wants to wait that long? Let's take a look at what the Vikings might be able to expect from each of their nine selections in the 2013 draft.
