EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Vikings President Mark Wilf says the team headquarters was electrified on Friday afternoon when the team's three first-round draft choices entered the building.
The Vikings became the first team since the St. Louis Rams in 2001 to land three first-round picks. They chose Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, Florida State cornerback Xavier Rhodes and Tennessee receiver Cordarrelle Patterson on Thursday night.
The three players arrived in Minnesota on Friday and were introduced to team employees and the media. The only other time in Vikings history the team has had three players was in 1967.
The Vikings traded up to get Patterson at No. 29, leaving them with no scheduled picks in the second and third rounds, which were being held on Friday night.
