First round

Ninth overall

Anthony Barr, UCLA • LB 6-5 255

Stats: Played two years at linebacker, made 149 tackles and forced nine fumbles. Had 40.5 tackles for loss and had 23.5 sacks. Consensus All-America last year and two-time All-Pac 12 first team selection.

Skinny: Used his athleticism to dominate in his first year at linebacker but became smarter his senior season. Still a raw linebacker that Mike Zimmer will need to develop, but Barr has a lot of upside.

First round

32nd overall

Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville • QB 6-2 214

Stats: Threw for 9,817 yards with 72 touchdowns in 39 games. Completed 68.4 percent of his passes. Named Big East Offensive Player of the Year in 2012.

Skinny: Fell in the draft because of a poor Pro Day. Was considered one of the top prospects leading up to that point. Will need to work deep ball accuracy. Only 21 years old, but he has the ability to compete for a starting job immediately.

 

Third round

72nd overall

Scott Crichton, Oregon State • DE 6-3 273

Stats: Started 36 of 38 games in three seasons and finished with 22.5 sacks and 51 tackles for loss and record 165 tackles (100 solo).

Skinny: He was the best player on their board at the time of the pick. He has a great motor and versatile on the defensive line. He gives Zimmer more depth on the defensive line.

 

Third round

96th overall

Jerick McKinnon, Ga. Southern • RB 5-9 209

Stats: He recorded 3,899 rushing yards with 42 touchdowns in 47 games as a quarterback and running back. Gained 100 rushing yards in 11 games and averaged 88.04 all-purpose yards a game

Skinny: Had an impressive combine performance and considered by some as the best non-BCS athlete. Will give the Vikings a change-of-pace running back.

Fifth round

148th overall

David Yankey, Stanford • OL 6-6 315

Stats: Started 40 games — 26 at left guard and 14 at left tackle. Averaged 8.45 knockdowns and 1.3 touchdown-resulting blocks as a starter. Eighth unanimous All-America selection in school history.

Skinny: Stanford has knack of producing offensive linemen. Projected to be a guard, Yankey will help add depth and create competition in training camp.

 

Sixth round

182th overall

Antone Exum, Virginia Tech • CB-S 6-0 213

Stats: Started just three games last season recovering from off-season ACL injury and had just four tackles. Finished with 186 tackles (110 solo), six interceptions and five forced fumbles. 2012 second-team All-ACC

Skinny: Experienced at safety and cornerback, he would’ve gone higher if not for the ACL injury. Hard hitter and can be used on special teams.

 

Sixth round

184th overall

Kendall James, Maine • CB 5-10 180

Stats: Finished with 36 tackles, 2.5 for loss, two interceptions and nine pass breakups. Associated Press FCS All-America second team and first team All-Colonial Athletic Association selection.

Skinny: Can make an immediate impact on special teams. Gives Vikings more depth at cornerback.

 

Seventh round

220th overall

Shamar Stephen, Connecticut • DT 6-5 309

Stats: Started 12 games last season and finished third on the team with 60 tackles; led the team with 10 tackles for loss and second with three sacks.

Skinny: Big defensive tackle who could serve as a backup. Looked at as a run stopper. Very raw.

 

Seventh round

223th overall

Brandon Watts, Georgia Tech • LB 6-0 225

Stats: Had 66 tackles (42 solo) with 3.5 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks and one interception last season.

Skinny: Very speedy linebacker with good range. Could have an impact on special teams immediately. Still developing as a linebacker, but a good athlete.

 

Seventh round

225th overall

Jabari Price, North Carolina • CB 5-10 200

Stats: Started 12 games as a senior and finished with 74 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss and a forced fumble.

Skinny: Shows the aggressiveness you’d expect from a Zimmer defender. Someone that could add depth at cornerback. Ran 4.45 40-yard dash.
