In today’s Monday Morning Mailbag I said it might take until June for us to see draft picks signing contracts. As it turns out, one Vikings draft pick signed his contract today.
Converted FB Ryan D’Imperio (he played LB in college) has signed with the Vikings. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
D’Imperio played LB at Rutgers but the Vikings worked him out as a FB before the draft and liked what they saw. So they selected him with the 30th pick of the 7th round – #237 overall – and will see what he can do on the offensive side of the ball.
