The signings are coming fast, and quite possibly furious as well. Just a couple of hours after the announcement that one seventh-round pick had agreed to terms, the Minnesota Vikings signed their other seventh-round pick this afternoon, North Carolina State linebacker Audie Cole.

The deal that Trevor Guyton signed that we mentioned earlier was also a four-year contract.
Cole was the 210th overall selection in this past year's draft, and the only player the Vikings took at the linebacker position, which is one that was thought to need significant help this off-season.
The Vikings now have two draft picks down and eight to go. I'm not sure how long it will take them to get the other eight players under contract, but I'm guessing that it isn't going to take all that long.
Congratulations to Audie Cole on officially becoming a member of the Minnesota Vikings!
