Best Minnesota Viking Draft Picks of All Time, by Round

The 2010 Draft will be the 50th go-around for the Minnesota Vikings. In that time, there have been several Hall of Fame picks, and some historic embarrassments as well.

Let's turn back the clock and acknowledge the very best picks of every round of the past 49 years.

Before we jump in, though, let's not forget the guys who nobody wanted—the undrafted free agents.

At 6'1" and 240 pounds, John Randle was considered too small to play DT even in D-I. He bulked up as a Viking, gaining almost 50 pounds over his career.

After 114 sacks and seven Pro Bowl selections as a Viking, he became a member of this year's Hall of Fame class. Not bad at all for an undersized defensive lineman out of D-II Texas A&I.

Center Mick Tingelhoff (Nebraska) was selected to six Pro Bowls, started four Super Bowls, and started every regular season (240) and postseason game the Vikings played during his 17-year career. He's clearly deserving of Hall of Fame recognition, and hopefully will be enshrined soon.
