The Minnesota Vikings found themselves walking away with multiple players in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft, marking the third straight year that general manager Rick Spielman has traded back up into the Day 1 festivities.
In 2012, the Vikings moved back into the first round for safety Harrison Smith at pick No. 29, and last year, the team maneuvered up to the same position for wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson.
This year's excitement involved Teddy Bridgewater, one of the top prospects in a highly contentious quarterback class. Minnesota was able to round out the evening with the Louisville junior at pick No. 32, after drafting defensive end Anthony Barr out of UCLA with the ninth overall selection.
Those two players will drastically impact any analyst's evaluation, but the value the Vikings were able to get in later rounds also plays into the overall equation.
We've rounded up the final grades from experts across the Web to see how well Minnesota fared in the three-day event. To be clear, these marks are an indication of perceived value for each player and the needs addressed.
