Harrison Smith becomes the eight member of a 10-member 2012 draft class to sign with the Minnesota Vikings.
Mike Max sat down with the Minnesota Vikings’ draft picks.
The Vikings second first round pick, Harrison Smith out of Notre Dame, has quite a connection to his childhood team in Tennessee. Former Viking Tim Irwin was Smith’s childhood coach, and currently coaches Smith’s younger brother.
The Minnesota Vikings have drafted Notre Dame cornerback Robert Blanton with the 139th overall selection in the fifth round.
The Minnesota Vikings have experienced a significant talent decline in two seasons since reaching the NFC championship game, and with that turnover has also come a loss of leadership.
