Here's a look at the Vikings 2010 draft class

2. (34) Chris Cook, CB, Virginia -- Has size to play safety (6-2, 212 pounds) but Vikings will keep him at corner. Likely will be a backup to start season. I'd expected Antoine Winfield and Lito Sheppard will start while Cedric Griffin recovers from his ACL injury.

2. (51) Toby Gerhart, RB, Stanford -- Likely will win role as Adrian Peterson's primary backup.

4. (100) Everson Griffen, DE, Southern Cal -- Gives Vikings depth on left side, especially if Ray Edwards leaves as free agent following the 2010 season. Griffen has the ability but most prove he has the maturity to play at the NFL level. 

5. (161) Chris DeGeare, OL, Wake Forest -- Most comfortable at guard but can play tackle and will vie for a top backup role. 

5. (167) Nate Triplett, LB, Minnesota -- Will compete for a special-teams role. Expects to begin training camp as a middle linebacker on the depth chart.

6. (199) Joe Webb, QB, UAB -- Nearly certain to move to wide receiver. He has experience at that position and could be a big-time threat in a Wildcat formation.

7. (214) Mickey Shuler, TE, Penn State -- Gives Vikings depth at this position and could be eventual replacement for veteran Jim Kleinsasser. First, however, he has to make the roster. Might spend year on practice squad. 

7. (237) Ryan D'Imperio,FB, Rutgers -- D'Imperio just said the Vikings drafted him as a fullback, although he played linebacker in college. He said he played fullback in high school.
