Vikings Have the Number 22 in Mind This April

The Vikings now have in their possession the 22nd overall pick in the NFL Draft. They were expected to get the 23rd selection, but moved up a spot when Arizona and Philadelphia advanced to the NFC Championship game. The Vikings have seven picks in the draft, but won’t pick in the sixth round. That selection went to the Eagles to complete the deal that brought Kelly Holcomb to the Vikings in 2007.

The Vikings have two seventh-round selections, gaining the extra pick from Washington in the Erasmus James trade. James was released last month by the Redskins. The 2009 NFL Draft takes place April 25th and 26th at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The Vikings are expected to have a draft party for their fans at team headquarters in Eden Prairie.
