Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Vikings fans are still in a state of disbelief after last night's wheeling and dealing in the first round of the NFL Draft; when Rick Spielman traded 3 picks to New England to get back into the first round and take Cordarelle Patterson from Tennessee.

Patterson, along with Xavier Rhodes and Sharrif Floyd all were in Minneapolis today for their initial introductions.

Floyd was considered by many the 2nd or 3rd best player overall in the draft; but fell all the way to 23rd and provides the Vikings with some immediate help up the middle.

Sharrif Floyd- Vikings Defensive Tackle: “It wasn't making me mad or frustrated or anything. If anything it got a little hot back there. But other than that I was calm. I knew at the end of the day I was going to end up somewhere, weather that be the first or second round, either way as long as I could get the chance to show I can be the player that a lot people think I can be, I'm looking forward to.”

Coming up at 6; we'll hear from all the Vikings 1st round picks; today should be quiet for Minnesota no picks in the 2nd and 3rd round.
