Second Round Mock Draft Features Lots Of Good Players, But Will Vikings Move Up Again?

The Minnesota Vikings are already off to a pretty solid start in the 2012 NFL Draft after selecting Matt Kalil and Harrison Smith on Thursday night. The team still has a lot of work to do following last year's disastrous season, however, and could be in the market for more early draft picks when the second and third round get underway on Friday night.

The mock drafts indicate that there are quite a few talented players still available in the second round, but as it stands, Minnesota doesn't have any picks until the 66th overall selection -- a selection that won't take place until the third round gets underway. Our friends over at Mocking the Draft have their second round mock draft up anyway, though, and it's worth taking a look to see what the Vikings could potentially get if they decide to use some of their ten remaining picks to trade up again.

The NFC North picks for the second round, according to SB Nation's experts, will likely be a cornerback for the Detroit Lions, a wide receiver for the Chicago Bears and another defensive lineman for the Green Bay Packers.
