The Vikings have had a top-10 draft pick 16 times in their history:
Hall of Famers (2): DE Carl Eller (left) and OT Ron Yary.
Pro Bowlers (2): RB Tommy Mason, WR Gene Washington.
Others (3): T Jim Dunaway, No. 3 pick in 1963, chose to play for the Bills of the AFL. WR Jack Snow, No. 8 pick 1965, was traded to the Rams immediately. DT Gary Larsen, considered a throw-in bit part of the deal, became an unsung but Pro Bowl member of the Purple People Eaters front four. DT Jerry Shay, the seventh pick in 1966, played only 15 games.
Pro Bowlers (1): LB Jeff Siemon, picked 10th overall in 1972 after the choice was acquired from the Patriots.
Hall of Famers (1): DE Chris Doleman *
Pro Bowlers (1): DT Doug Martin.
Others (1): RB-KR Darrin Nelson played 11 seasons, eight with Vikings.
Pro Bowlers (3): OT Bryant Mc- Kinnie, DT Kevin Williams, RB Adrian Peterson.
Others (1): WR Troy Williamson, seventh overall in 2005. After the Vikings took DL Erasmus James 18th, the Packers took Aaron Rodgers 24th. At that point, the Vikings had Daunte Culpepper, who was 27, healthy and coming off a season in which he would have won league MVP if not for Peyton Manning’s great year. Culpepper, however, would never play another game for the Vikings after blowing out a knee seven months later.
Pro Bowlers (1): OT Matt Kalil.
