Complete Guide To The Vikings Draft

2009-draft-300

 

I’ve made strong efforts over the past four weeks to gradually roll out a position-by-position analysis of the upcoming draft as it relates to the Vikings.  Now, in the days approaching the draft, I’ve compiled all the links into this one post.  Click around and see who I think the Vikings should target, who I think the will target, who I think they’ll avoid, and who’s a viable first round option.  Also, towards the bottom, click the links to see my top 22 players in round one as well as a list of players who have visited Winter Park over the last few weeks.
