Vikings Sign 3 Draft Picks: Hodges, Mauti, Dawkins

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have signed three of their nine draft picks: linebackers Gerald Hodges and Michael Mauti and defensive tackle Everett Dawkins.

The team announced the deals on Tuesday.

Hodges, who will play one of the outside spots, was picked in the fourth round out of Penn State. Mauti, whose position is in the middle, was a seventh-round selection, also from Penn State. Dawkins was taken in the seventh round out of Florida State. They’ll all get rookie-standard four-year contracts, slotted by draft position.

Last season, the Vikings signed eight of their 10 draft picks by June 1.
