A complete list of Minnesota Vikings picks in the 2022 NFL Draft can be found below.

Round 1

PICK #32

Minnesota Vikings

Lewis Cine

S, Georgia

It’s fitting that the first round began and ended with national champion Georgia defensive players (five in all). The Vikings get an intimidating cleanup man next to venerable Harrison Smith who also showed he had the athleticism to make a lot more plays in coverage in the NFL. For the team moving down 20 spots, Kwesi Adofo-Mensah did well with his first pick as GM with a fine talent that fits a need and matches the value.

Grade: A

Round 2

PICK #10

Minnesota Vikings

Andrew Booth Jr.

CB, Clemson

The Vikings brought back fading Patrick Peterson because of hurting depth but they still need to address corner to get the ideal complement to well-rounded Cameron Dantzler. Booth's size, strength and aggressiveness that add up to big plays on the ball make him an ideal protegé for Peterson.

Grade A+

(from IND)

Round 2

PICK #27

Minnesota Vikings

Ed Ingram


Ingram is a solid inside pass protector who still has room to grow as a run blocker, but he has the athletic profile the Vikings like. Although he was a Day 3 prospect on some boards, the situation gives him a good chance to start at guard for them as a rookie.

Grade: B+

(from GB)

Round 3


Minnesota Vikings

Brian Asamoah II

LB, Oklahoma

Asamoah was attractive because of his flashy speed and quickness that allow him to make plays, but he still could round out his game to be more than a rotational player at first. He should work behind Eric Kendricks and Jordan Hicks at first.

Grade: B-

(from DET)

Round 4

PICK #13

Minnesota Vikings

Akayleb Evans

CB, Missouri

(from CLE)

Round 5
