Heading into the draft, we will give the recent history at each of the Vikings’ seven draft slots. We continue this series by taking a look at the Vikings’ 110th overall selection in this year’s draft.

The Vikings have the first pick in the fifth round, acquiring the 137th overall selection from the Bills via Tampa Bay in a trade that shipped quarterback Matt Cassel to Buffalo. There’s a good cornerback that was recently drafted at this spot, and there’s one quarterback Vikings fans will remember fairly well for all the wrong reasons Here’s the list of the last 10 players to go 137th overall: 2014: Dakota Dozier, OL, Jets 2013: Jesse Williams, DT, Seahawks 2012: Malik Jackson, DT,...

Charley Walters: All signs point to Vikings drafting Trae Waynes

Charley Walters: All signs point to Vikings drafting Trae Waynes

The near-consensus as to who will be the Minnesota Vikings' choice with their No. 11 pick in Thursday's NFL draft is cornerback Trae Waynes from Michigan State.

NFL Draft Truth or Hype: Michigan State CB Trae Waynes

We’ll take a daily look at some of the most talked about prospects in the 2015 NFL Draft and tell you whether they’re worth the hype or not. I’ve been so obsessed with the edge rushers in the draft that I haven’t analyzed a single cornerback in this series yet. Well, that changes now starting with Michigan State cornerback Trae Waynes. It seems as if 90 percent of the mock drafts (rough estimate) pairs Waynes and the Vikings with the 11th overall pick. He’s viewed as the top rated cornerback in the draft by many people at six feet and 186 pounds. Could he fill the need for the...

Herschel Walker: Time for Vikings to trade Adrian Peterson

The guy the Vikings got in the most infamous trade in Minnesota sports history says it's time for the team to trade the best running back in team history.

Herschel Walker says Vikings should trade disgruntled Adrian Peterson

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pioneerpress.com Herschel Walker, the former running back involved in the most famous deal in Minnesota history, said Thursday the time has come for the Vikings to trade Adrian Peterson. Peterson, the running back who was reinstated from an NFL suspension last week, is disgruntled because he doesn’t believe Vikings officials did enough to get him back on the field last season, when he missed 15 games because of a child-abuse incident. “They should trade him because I think Adrian has lost his love for the Vikings with everything that went on last year,’’...

History of the Vikings' pick: No. 232 overall

Heading into the draft, we will give the recent history at each of the Vikings’ seven draft slots. We will begin this series with pick No. 232, the last of the Vikings’ seven selections. The pickings will be slim midway through the seventh round, but recent history shows that it is possible to find a standout. If you watched this year’s Super Bowl, you watched one 232nd pick deliver in a big way. Before we look at the good, bad and ugly, here is a list of the last 10 players to go 232nd overall: 2014: Ulrick John, OT, Colts 2013: Sam Barrington, LB, Packers 2012: Greg Scruggs, DE,...

Vikings draft positional primer: the defensive line

In Mike Zimmer’s first season in Minnesota, the Vikings’ front four became formidable once again. Led by a first-time starter in right defensive end Everson Griffen, the Vikings — who had three new starters along their defensive line — recorded 41 sacks. And the pressure they generated on enemy quarterbacks was one of the primary reasons the Vikings were able to climb all the way to seventh in pass defense in 2014. But it wasn’t all pretty. The Vikings got gouged for 121.4 rushing yards per game, which was worst in the division and ranked 25th in the NFL. That’s not all on the...
