MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to terms on contracts with 12 college free agents.
That’s after the record haul of 15 draft picks they made over the weekend.
Texas A&M wide receiver Quartney Davis was one of the priorities, as one of the top-rated undrafted prospects.
The 6-foot-1, 201-pound Davis skipped his final season with Texas A&M to turn pro. He had 616 yards and four touchdowns in 11 games for the Aggies in 2019.
The Minnesota Vikings made the defensive line their first priority on the final day of the draft.
They took South Carolina defensive end D.J. Wonnum and Baylor defensive tackle James Lynch with their first two selections in the fourth round.
The Vikings wrapped up the draft with 15 picks, the most by any NFL team since the event was trimmed to seven rounds in 1994.
Wonnum was targeted by the Vikings for his potential, similar to what they saw in Danielle Hunter in 2015. Hunter last year became the youngest player in league history to reach 50 career sacks.
The Minnesota Vikings have chosen Boise State offensive tackle Ezra Cleveland with their second-round pick in the NFL draft.
Cleveland was the 58th overall selection.
Only one other offensive lineman came off the board in the first 25 slots of the second round. That gave the Vikings plenty of options for addressing a significant need.
The 6-foot-6, 311-pound Cleveland was a three-year starter at left tackle in college.
With the 89th overall selection, the Vikings used their first third-round pick on Mississippi State cornerback Cameron Dantzler.
The Minnesota Vikings have taken LSU wide receiver Justin Jefferson with the 22nd overall pick in the NFL draft.
They also traded down to select TCU cornerback Jeff Gladney with the 31st choice.
The slot for Jefferson came from Buffalo in the trade that sent wide receiver Stefon Diggs to the Bills. Jefferson set a school record and led all FBS players with 111 receptions in 2019 for the national champions.
The Vikings sent the 25th selection to San Francisco and moved down six spots for Gladney while gaining additional picks in the fourth and fifth round from the 49ers.
