2011 NFL Draft, Day Three - Open Thread

We're about 20 minutes away from the start of the third and final day of the 2011 National Football League Draft, and the Vikings still have some work to do, and plenty of picks with which to do it.

As it stands today, the Vikings have seven picks in the final four rounds of this year's selection meeting. Those picks are as follows:

Round 4, Pick 9 (#106 overall)
Round 5, Pick 8 (#139 overall)
Round 5, Pick 19 (#150 overall; acquired from New York Giants in Sage Rosenfels/Darius Reynaud trade)
Round 6, Pick 7 (#172 overall)
Round 6, Pick 35 (#200 overall; compensatory selection, can not be traded)
Round 7, Pick 12 (#215 overall)
Round 7, Pick 33 (#236 overall; compensatory selection, can not be traded)

I would look for the Vikings to address the secondary and the interior of the offensive line early on, with wide receiver and outside linebacker as other things that need to be addressed. It wouldn't surprise me to see the Vikings take a flier on another quarterback in the late, late going, either.

Some of the bigger names on the board as we move into the third day of the draft are Texas Christian guard Marcus Cannon (who was projected to go already, but was diagnosed with a treatable form of lymphoma a few days before the draft. . .I'd still love for him to be a Viking), North Carolina outside linebacker Quan Sturdivant, Florida safety Ahmad Black, receivers Edmond Gates out of Abilene Christian, Tandon Doss of Indiana, and Greg Salas of Hawai'i, among others.

Keep it tuned right here, folks, as we'll have the Vikings' picks as soon as they happen!
