Compensatory picks


According to this fanpost over on Mocking the draft, the Vikings would stand to earn conditional picks in the 3rd round (due to losing Sidney Rice), 4th round (due to losing Ray Edwards and Ben Leber) and in the 7th round. Now I know we won't know for sure for a few weeks, but this certainly is some good news. The Vikings can use all the early-mid round picks that they can get their hands on. Many of us also expect that the team will listen to offers for our #3 pick especially if USC left tackle Matt Kalil is off the board, but more importantly if the price is right.

Let's hope that GM Rick Spielman can turn these extra picks into viable football players that help this team move forward. I personally am hoping that the Vikings find at least 3 starters in this draft, one in the secondary and at least one on the offensive line, and perhaps the 3rd starter being a WR or LB.
