The Vikings will have 10 picks to use during next month's NFL Draft, valuable currency for a team in rebuilding mode. This afternoon at the owners meetings in West Palm Beach, Fla., the organization learned it would receive a pair of compensatory fourth-round draft picks after losing receiver Sidney Rice and defensive end Ray Edwards to free agency last year.
The Vikings have reported that the two compensatory picks they'll receive will be the 33rd and 39th picks of the fourth round.
The Vikings now have three picks in the fourth-round plus an additional seventh-round pick as well, bringing their pick total to 10.
