The Minnesota Vikings have been successful in the NFL draft of late. Since 2007, when the Vikings drafted Adrian Peterson with the seventh pick in the draft, they have had 26 of 46 selected players start at least one game, and 28 of those players are still with the team.
The Vikings have been equally successful in signing undrafted free agents. Pro Football Reference lists 10 undrafted players who appeared for the Vikings last season. Eight of them started their careers in Minnesota.
For the second straight year, the Vikings had multiple selections in the first round. Last year, they added starters left tackle Matt Kalil and safety Harrison Smith with their two first-round picks.
This year, the Vikings had three picks among the first 32, dealing their way back into the first round.
The expectations will be high for these three players to contribute in 2013.
Here's a breakdown of the Vikings' draft picks and undrafted rookies heading into training camp.
