All in all, they drafted eleven players this year, and only made one trade throughout the course of their entire weekend. That was the trade they made on the first night of the draft with the New York Jets to move down and acquire two more third-round selections. It certainly wasn’t the typical “Trader Rick” draft for the purple this year.
With that, here are all of the members of this year’s draft class for the Vikings along with pictures of all of them in action. . .well, almost all of them.

Round 3, Pick #66 - Kellen Mond, QB, Texas A&M University
Round 3, Pick #78 - Chazz Surratt, LB, University of North Carolina

We’ll have plenty more on this year’s Minnesota Vikings’ draft class, as well as the post-draft Undrafted Free Agent signing frenzy. It should be an interesting one for the Vikings because they’ve got some open spots that can be filled with those kinds of players.
