    Vikings Draft Trivia - Question #3

    The NFL draft used to be 20 rounds long.
    Over the years, it has been cut down to the current seven rounds.

    Two Minnesota Vikings have made the Pro Bowl after having been drafted in the 10th round or higher.

    Name them and their Pro Bowl years.

    (Off to lunch - answer when I come back)

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Gary Larsen '69
    Joe Kapp '69

    (Kapp was drafted by the Redskins though, Larsen by the Rams. Don't think that counts.)


    EDIT: Add Grady Alderman '67 to that list.

    lol.

    Yeah, neither Gary Larsen or Joe Kapp were drafted by the Vikings... although, that's not really what the question was asking.

    Yours is probably the right answer.
