Minnesota Vikings draft picks 2022: Round-by-round selections


Here is a 2022 NFL draft pick-by-pick breakdown for the Minnesota Vikings:

Round 1 (No. 32 overall, from Rams through Lions) - Lewis Cine, S, Georgia: So a first round that began with a Bulldogs defender also ends with one. A 6-2, 200-pounder with sub-4.4 speed, Cine is an enforcer in the deep half. But he can also operate near the line or cover from the slot. He and Harrison Smith ought to be a formidable safety duo for a Minnesota team that's been betrayed by its defense in recent seasons. Draft tracker

Round 2 (No. 42 overall, from Commanders through Colts) - Andrew Booth, Jr., CB, Clemson: The Vikes, who took Georgia S Lewis Cine at the end of Round 1, continue refitting their secondary with a talented corner who gets to learn the ropes from veteran Patrick Peterson. Draft tracker

Round 2 (59, from Packers) - Ed Ingram, OG, LSU: A fixture at left guard for the Tigers, pass protection is his bread and butter. QB Kirk Cousins approves. Draft tracker

Round 3 (66, from Lions) - Brian Asamoah, LB, Oklahoma: Undersized, but moves well and could cover some ground alongside Eric Kendricks. Draft tracker
