2013 NFL Mock Draft: Vikings add a wide receiver

Jed Jacobsohn

Minnesota needs a wide receiver, and it gets a nice value pick late in the first round.

The Minnesota Vikings made the playoffs on the back of Adrian Peterson's remarkable season, masking the fact that the roster still has some holes.

Dan Kadar updated his mock draft on Monday morning, and he has the Vikings drafting California wide receiver Keenan Allen with the No. 23 pick in the first round.

Allen was widely considered the top wide receiver in the draft before a subpar statistical season and a knee injury that ended his season. His talent is undeniable, though, and after the Vikings got rid of Percy Harvin, wide receiver becomes an even bigger need for the team.

This mock was updated before Minnesota acquired a second first-round pick, so stay tuned for SB Nation's next update to find out how the Vikings will make use of two prime picks in the 2013 NFL Draft.
