The Minnesota Vikings: The Best Drafts in Franchise History

The Minnesota Vikings have made a name for themselves in the past five years by building simultaneously through the draft as well as through free agency.

The Vikings have seen some of their best drafts in just the past few years, as they have landed the likes of Kevin Williams, Adrian Peterson, Sidney Rice, Percy Harvin, and Cedric Griffin.

After evaluating all of the Vikings drafts, it becomes clear that the best drafts in franchise history were in the early years and the most recent years. The Vikings seemed to hit the draft doldrums in their middle years with many ineffective draft picks.

Notable draft picks that are left out of this list include: Randall McDaniel, Ron Yary, and Chris Doleman. These Vikings greats were left out because the rest of their respective draft classes were far too poor.

Two of the best Vikings drafts came in the very early years while four of them have come in just the last twelve years. The drafts are listed in chronological order.
