2013 NFL Draft: Vikings Targeting WR And Defense With Their Two First-Round Picks

After trading away star wide receiver and return man extraordinaire Percy Harvin to the Seattle Seahawks earlier in March, the Minnesota Vikings are looking to re-stock the position through the draft. According to ESPN's Bob Holtzman (and relayed by Evan Silva), the Vikings will almost certainly use one of their two first-round draft picks on a wide receiver.

The Vikings added WR Greg Jennings early on in free agency, but with the likes of Jerome Simpson playing second fiddle to Jennings, they would clearly like an upgrade at the position at the number two spot. Holtzman also reports that the team is looking to use their second first-round pick on a defensive player. A likely option could be embattled linebacker Manti Te'o, who the Vikings are rumored to have a strong interest in.
