And then, BOOM, it was over, just like that.

Rounding out a pretty nice morning for the Minnesota Vikings, they agreed to terms with cornerback Xavier Rhodes, the second of their three first round selections from the 2013 NFL Draft. Rhodes was taken with the 25th overall selection in Round One with one of the picks the Vikings acquired from trading wide receiver Percy Harvin to the Seattle Seahawks. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately available.

Rhodes was considered one of the top cornerbacks in this year's class, and gives the Vikings another bigger corner to pair with incumbent starter Chris Cook. With the kinds of receivers that the Vikings see all year in the NFC North, a pair of corners like Rhodes and Cook could turn out to be huge assets for the Vikings.

This means that all of Minnesota's draft picks are under contract, and the team will have their full complement of players heading to Mankato tomorrow.

Congratulations, Xavier, and welcome to Minnesota!
