The Minnesota Vikings added more talent to their receiver room in the seventh round of the draft while also adding a Mike Zimmer cornerback and a long snapper.
The Minnesota Vikings capped off a solid rookie class on Saturday afternoon with four picks in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
With their offensive line problem already addressed, the Vikings were in a position to look to other needs across the board and they added talent that will be interesting to watch leading into training camp this summer.
When the smoke cleared on the final round, Minnesota landed a pair of wide receivers in Oregon’s Dillon Mitchell and Colorado State’s Olabisi Johnson. The Vikings were also able to add a cornerback with several intangibles that Mike Zimmer craves in Texas’ Kris Boyd before finishing their draft by selecting long snapper Austin Cutting out of Air Force.
It’s rare for a seventh-round pick to make an impact, but Minnesota is hoping that several of this year’s crop can make a push to claim a roster spot in August.
