The NFL handed out compensatory draft picks on Monday at the annual Spring Owners’ Meetings, and the Vikings came away with a pair of 4th-round picks to add to their arsenal of selections in next month’s draft. The Vikings were awarded the 33rd and 39th picks in the 4th round, giving them 6 picks in the first 4 rounds and 10 selections overall.
The Vikings had 10 selections in last year’s draft as well, and 9 of those 10 picks remain on the roster. A similar effort in this year’s draft will go a long way toward Rick Spielman and Co.’s effort of rebuilding the roster.
Here’s a rundown of the Vikings 10 selections in this year’s draft…
1st round – 3rd pick – 3rd overall
2nd round – 3rd pick – 35th overall
3rd round – 3rd pick – 66th overall
4th round – 3rd pick – 98th overall
4th round – 33rd pick – 128th overall (compensatory)
4th round – 39th pick – 134th overall (compensatory)
5th round – 3rd pick – 138th overall
6th round – 5th pick – 175th overall (from Cleveland for Jayme Mitchell trade)
