(WDAY TV) -- The first round of the NFL draft is Thursday, and the Vikings have some decisions to make. They hold picks 23 and 25 in the opening round.
GM Rick Spielman has to be proud of his two top choices a year ago, when he selected Matt Kalil and Harrison Smith.
This weekend he's hoping to get similar results out of his 11 picks. You can expect the team to address Linebacker, cornerback, and wide receiver early.
Spielman says the good thing is that this draft is deep.
Spielman says, "This draft will be a lot different this year because you'll see teams saying, well, why don't they take that player and not that player because the talent pool is so close together. You're going to hone in on something specifically that this guy does that really fits what you're trying to accomplish on offense or defense."
Several experts are predicting the Vikings will choose Notre Dame inside linebacker Manti Te'o with one of their 2 first round picks. Thursday should be interesting.
