NFL Draft 2012: Best Available Players For Second And Third Rounds Likely Interest Vikings

The 2012 NFL Draft's best available players went early in the first round on Thursday night, but there are still plenty of solid players remaining. That's especially important for the Minnesota Vikings, a team that entered the offseason with needs all over their roster following last season's disastrous year.

The good news is that there are plenty of talented players available to selected in the second and third rounds on Friday night. The bad news is that the Vikings don't have a pick again until the third round, despite having 10 picks remaining for the final six rounds.

Anyway, according to our friends over at Mocking the Draft, there are still quite a few players with first round grades available. Whether Minnesota trades back into the second round to get them or stands pat with hopes that one of the players drops quite far again remains to be seen.
