The Minnesota Vikings have done fairly well picking in the fourth round in the last decade. However, they have had a handful of bad choices. Who are the worst ones?

Over the last decade, the Minnesota Vikings have fared pretty well when it comes to the NFL Draft.

During the last 10 years, the Vikings have been able to find contributors throughout all seven rounds and they have even been able to land a star every now and then. Minnesota has had about as much success in the draft since 2010 as any team in the league.

But it isn’t all roses and sunshine. The Vikings do occasionally land themselves quite the disappointment in the NFL Draft.

We’ve been looking at Minnesota’s best picks from each round of the last decade. Now as we hit the fourth round range, we can start looking at the bad ones as misses in the fifth round and lower get a pass.

These are the selections that Vikings general manager Rick Spielman wishes he could have back. Unfortunately for him, there are no take-backs in the NFL Draft and he’ll have to live with the shame of these choices for the rest of his life.

So which selections are deserving enough of being Minnesota’s worst fourth-round draft picks from the last decade?
