The NFL Draft is underway.  The Vikings didn't have a first round pick, trading it away for Sam Bradford last off-season.  Despite falling off multiple big boards after a diluted urine sample at the NFL Combine, the Cleveland Browns took University of Michigan safety, Jabrill Peppers with the No. 25 pick.

Leading up to Thursday’s draft, some thought he could land with the Vikings.  The picks for the NFC North rivals were:

Chicago - QB Mitchell Trubisky (North Carolina)
Detroit - LB Jarrad Davis (Florida)

Green Bay traded out of the first round, get the Browns picks at 33rd and 108th in exchange for their 29th pick.  Round two and three are today.  Rounds four through seven are tomorrow.
