Vikings draft NC State LB, Cal DE in 7th round
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Vikings wrapped up their 2012 draft by selecting California defensive end Trevor Guyton in the seventh round.
Guyton was taken with the 219th overall pick, nine selections after the Vikings grabbed North Carolina State Audie Cole at No. 210. He had five sacks last season for the Golden Bears.
They traded No. 211 to Tennessee for a sixth-round pick next year.
It's been a busy day for the Vikings, who started things off with taking Arkansas receiver Jarius Wright in the fourth round. They also took USC tight end/fullback Rhett Ellison and Arkansas receiver Greg Childs in the fourth round, then grabbed Notre Dame defensive back Robert Blanton Jr. in the fifth round.
The Vikings took Georgia kicker Blair Walsh in the sixth round.
