2022 NFL Draft: Best Players Available, Potential Vikings Targets in Rounds 2 and 3

If you thought the Vikings were busy on Day 1 of the 2022 NFL Draft, just wait until you see the action Day 2 brings.

Minnesota closed out Thursday night's first round by selecting Georgia safety Lewis Cine at No. 32 overall, a pick they made two hours after they were originally on the clock. 

The Vikings traded down from 12 to 32 in a deal with the Lions, also sending the 46th pick to Detroit and receiving picks 34 and 66. 

That means they'll be awfully busy on Friday night, with three of the next 45 selections in the draft and plenty of ammo to move up or down the board if they want to.

"I really felt like the value that could present itself in that kind of 30-ish to 70-something type of picks, we've got a lot of guys on our board stacked there that can help us win a lot of football games," 

"That's what we'll go through tonight and tomorrow and make sure we've got a great plan for how we want to go about things."

The Vikings will be on the clock not long after 6:00 p.m. central time tonight with the 34th pick. In addition to the 66th pick, they also have their original third-rounder at No. 77 overall.
