Vikings Sign Three Remaning Draft Picks

The Vikings signed their remaining three draft picks, including their top choice, safety Tyrell Johnson. Along with Johnson, a second-rounder, fifth-round selection quarterback John David Booty and sixth-round selection center John Sullivan also signed.

Out of Arkansas State, Johnson was named Sun Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Year last season while earning first-team All-Sun Belt honors in his final three seasons after a second-team selection his freshman year.

Booty, a Heisman candidate front-runner in the 2007-08 campaign until a midseason injury, left USC with 55 touchdown passes, fourth all-time at the school. He was a 2006 All-Pac-10 selection before earning offensive MVP honors at the 2007 Rose Bowl. He led the Trojans to two Rose Bowl victories and holds the record for career touchdown passes in the game.
