So much for the Vikings drafting at the top of round two a potential successor to Brett Favre.
After being Rex-blocked for cornerback Kyle Wilson and having the Saints take cornerback Patrick Robinson after Minny traded down four spots to upgrade in round four, they selected Virginia cornerback Chris Cook.
Cook also can play safety, another area of need for the Vikings. Per Nolan Nawrocki of Pro Football Weekly, Cook has the size but not the physicality or aggressiveness to thrive at safety.
With a pick at the bottom of round two, the Vikings could still take Jimmy Clausen or Colt McCoy, if their slides continue.
