They also took Arkansas offensive tackle DeMarcus Love and South Florida safety Mistral Raymond in the sixth round.
The Vikings took quarterback Christian Ponder in the first round on Thursday and Notre Dame tight end Kyle Rudolph in the second round on Friday. The Vikings also have two picks in the seventh round.
