2012 NFL Draft Grades: SB Nation Gives Final Grade Of A- To Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings have been getting rave reviews from all over the place after what has looked to be a great 2012 NFL Draft. They added a bunch of important pieces, had a great trading strategy that saw them gain a bunch of picks and still get the guy they wanted in the first place -- it was a good one by most accounts.

SB Nation's video recap of the NFC North agreed with the solid reviews that the Vikings have been getting, giving Minnesota an A- for their work. In addition to Matt Kalil obviously, the SB Nation gang were impressed by the good load of wide receivers that were picked up with WR being a huge need for them going in. Dan in particular also seems to like the color purple in general.

Their A- was tied for the highest score given in the NFC North with the Green Bay Packers.
