The Minnesota Vikings Now Have Six Of Their Draft Picks Under Contract

Well, rather than spacing the rookie signings out a bit more and giving poor, needy bloggers like us something to write about, Rick Spielman and the rest of the Minnesota Vikings organization apparently thought it would be best to just do a whole bunch of them at once.

Yes, after we reported the signings of defensive lineman Trevor Guyton and linebacker Audie Cole, the Vikings have just announced that they now have six of their ten draft picks under contract.

In addition to Guyton and Cole, the Vikings have signed two of their three fourth-round picks, Arkansas wide receivers Greg Childs and Jarius Wright, defensive back Robert Blanton, who the Vikings took in the fifth round out of Notre Dame, and their sixth-round selection, Georgia kicker Blair Walsh.

I'm assuming that all of the contracts signed thus far are four-year deals. If any of them aren't, we'll update this post to reflect that.

That means that the Vikings have four picks left to get signed. They still need to ink both of their first round picks, USC offensive tackle Matt Kalil and Notre Dame safety Harrison Smith. In addition, they still need to sign their third round pick, Central Florida cornerback Josh Robinson, and their other fourth-round pick, tight end Rhett Ellison out of USC.

Congratulations to all of the newest members of the Minnesota Vikings!
