Minnesota Vikings Announce Signings Of Six Draft Picks

The Minnesota Vikings might have gotten into the draft pick signing game a bit late compared to their NFC North rivals. . .they did have a couple of other things going on, after all. . .but now that they've gotten started, they've wasted no time getting their 2012 Draft Class under contract.

The Vikings have signed six of their ten draft picks, according to the folks at the Minnesota Vikings' official website. The team has inked the following players:

↵

-Arkansas wide receiver Jarius Wright (4th round)
-Arkansas wide receiver Greg Childs (4th round)
-Notre Dame defensive back Robert Blanton (5th round)
-Georgia kicker Blair Walsh (6th round)
-North Carolina State linebacker Audie Cole (7th round)
-California defensive lineman Trevor Guyton (7th round)

The signings of Guyton and Cole, which were announced earlier in the day, were four-year signings, and it's believed that the other four signings from today are also four-year deals.

↵

That means the Vikings still have four picks remaining to get under contract. Both of their first round picks, USC offensive tackle Matt Kalil and Notre Dame safety Harrison Smith, need to be signed. The Vikings also need to agree to deals with Central Florida cornerback Josh Robinson, their third-round pick, and another of their fourth-round picks, USC tight end Rhett Ellison.
