Perhaps the Vikings’ 3rd round is built over an Indian Burial Ground.

We took a look at the carnage that has been the 3rd round of the NFL Draft the last 20 seasons for the Vikings.

Miss after miss after miss. And so many BAD cornerbacks.

You’ll see we never find us a Russell Wilson (2012), Jimmy Graham (2010), or a Jamaal Charles (2008) in Round Tres. But the picks we trade away… Other teams tend to do alright with.

So buckle up. You’re in for a very unfortunate ride. Full chart of our failures in the 3rd (past 20 years) below the vid.
