The Minnesota Vikings have gotten back into the draft pick signings today, inking one of their two first-round picks.

It was announced earlier today that the Vikings have agreed to terms with Notre Dame safety Harrison Smith. The deal is a four-year deal, just like the contracts the team's other draft picks have agreed to thus far.

Smith was the 29th pick in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft, a pick the Vikings made when they traded back into the first round on the first night of the selection meeting. They jumped from their second round pick at #35 to the Baltimore Ravens' spot at 29 to pick Smith, who many regarded as the second-best safety in this year's draft.

That means the Vikings only have to members of their rookie class unsigned. Offensive tackle Matt Kalil has yet to be signed, and third-round cornerback Josh Robinson has not signed a deal yet, either.
