The Vikings' Seventh Round
Three picks and the Vikings passed on Minnesota native Seantrel Henderson at OT?
The 7th is when you take a chance on high risk / high return players.
The guys selected ... not so much. Shamar Stephen may do well, but Henderson has much more upside than either Watts or Price.
Watts may have been drafted to move him to safety.
I doubt Price even gets drafted had the Vikings not selected him.

We are aweful in the late rounds. I have no faith in us finding players after the 3rd.

Last pro bowler we had from a late round pick minus a kicker and center ( who is on his 6th or so season).

No Christian Jones... And he signs to the bears.
Amazing athlete at OLB, who can cover and rush the QB.
Worth more than the bums we picked.

Jones also failed his combine drug test.

We have a very solid center who was taken in the sixth. We have a Pro Bowl kicker who was taken in the sixth. We have a starting DE who was taken in the fourth. We have a contributing WR that was taken in the fourth. A starting safety who was taken in the seventh. That is a pretty decent track record honestly.
