The Vikings were fastest to the phone, which is why Theiren Cockran will be at their rookie camp this weekend.
In his tenure as general manager of the Minnesota Vikings, Rick Spielman has proved more than willing to make deals to move up and down the board when the situation arises. He did so again last Friday in a move that went largely unnoticed, but will have big ramifications on the 2017 draft.
One Vikings draft choice plays nine musical instruments and another apparently hates to be tickled. Here's some stuff about the Vikings picks that's more interesting than important.
The Vikings have officially exercised the fifth-year options for two of their 2013 first-round draft picks, defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd and cornerback Xavier Rhodes. But they will not pick up the option for fellow first-rounder Cordarrelle Patterson, a kick returner and seldom-used wide receiver.
Cordarrelle Patterson will be a free agent after this season because the Vikings declined Monday to pick up his fifth-year option.
Sixth-round pick Moritz Boehringer has signed his rookie contract, the Vikings announced Monday evening. The German wide receiver is so fast, he is the first of the NFL’s 2016 draft picks to sign, according to the team.
If we can throw out the best grade (A) and worst (C), we arrive at a consensus of B-minus. Much of it hinges on first-round pick Laquon Treadwell.

The Vikings did what most expected, picking up the fifth-year options for DT Sharrif Floyd and CB Xavier Rhodes on Monday’s deadline to do so.
The only thing more inexact than the NFL mock drafts that have populated the Internet in recent months might be the attempt to assign immediate grades for how each team fared in last weekend’s selection process.
After this weekend, the Vikings have just one roster spot open following the addition of eight draft picks and 10 undrafted free agents.
The Vikings put the finishing touch on the 90-man roster Monday with 10 undrafted free agent signings.
Two of the Vikings’ three 2013 first-round picks will be under contract for the 2017 season.
The Vikings keep wheeling and dealing after the draft. First they drafted eight players, then they signed eleven undrafted free agents, then today they picked up the fifth-year options on two players, leaving one out of the mix.
Following the end of the 2016 NFL Draft, the Vikings like the rest of the league, hit the wire to go grab the remaining Undrafted Free Agents. In fact they began work to round out their roster by signing six UDFAs in the first hour after the draft!
It’s not too often that national attention is being paid towards the Minnesota Vikings coming out of the NFL Draft. With big markets and early draft picks usually stealing the headlines, Minnesota drafting to fill needs usually falls into the “fly over states” mantra. But not this year, this year there are not only eyes on Minnesota’s picks, but a lot of them.

Final pick Jayron Kearse is a 6-foot-4 safety who is the nephew of former NFL defensive end Jevon Kearse. He was a first-team All-ACC selection in 2015.
