The 2011 NFL Draft is officially in the books and the Vikings came away with a total of 10 players. We’ve had tons of draft coverage over the past few days and we’ve got even more coming your way soon.
Click here to go to our “Picks Page” to get all the details of whom the Vikings selected and when they selected them.
Here are a few notes to chew on for now…
– The 10 selections this year are the most since 2000, when the Vikings also chose 10 players in that draft.
— The Vikings selected 5 offensive players and 5 defensive players, with all 5 of the defensive players being selected on Saturday.
— The Vikings consummated a trade with the Cleveland Browns in the 5th round, netting the Purple a pair of 6th round picks this year. In exchange for the 5th-round pick (#150), the Vikings got the 3rd selection of the 6th round (#168 overall) and the 5th selection of the 6th round (#170).
— With the extra 6th-rounders, the Vikings picked up OT DeMarcus Love from Arkansas and S Mistral Raymond from South Florida. Love has great position flexibility and can play on either the left side or the right side and Raymond can play either CB or S.
