Minnesota Vikings: Top 30 draft picks in franchise history

15. Carl Lee
I can think of another guy the Vikings drafted out of Marshall who also had a significant impact.
Long before Moss, the Vikings took cornerback Carl Lee out of Marshall with the 186th overall pick in the 1983 draft.
How’s this for a return on a 186th overall pick:
11 years. 29 interceptions. 771 tackles. Three Pro Bowls. One first-team All-Pro.
That’s what they nowadays call a value pick.
