    BREAKING NEWS

    MANKATO, Minn --- The Minnesota Vikings announced today that they have signed quarterback Kurt Warner to a one-year contract. Warner led the St. Louis Rams to a Super Bowl title in 1999 and also had Super Bowl appearances for the Rams in 2001 and the Arizona Cardinals in 2008, losing both. Warner has not competed since 2009 but the Vikings will look to him to lead their revamped team to their first ever Super Bowl title.

    This marks the third time in five year that the Vikings will look to an aging veteran quarterback to lead them to the Super Bowl. Brett Favre came out of retirement in 2009 to get the Vikings to within one game of their fifth Super Bowl appearance. In 2011 the Vikings looked to Donovan McNabb, who had been given up on by the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins. McNabb struggled with the Vikings and was bench for rookie Christian Ponder after six games. The Vikings hope Warner's tenure is more reminiscent of Favre's 2009 year and that he can do what he had previously done with both St. Louis and Arizona.

    The Draft - Four Months Later

    The preseason is over and the final roster cuts have been made. It is time to take a look back at the Vikings 2013 draft and see what the future holds for many of the 11 picks the Vikings made in April.

    2nd (10th) - QB Brett Ray (WVU) 6-3 239

    Ray was a reach pick in the 2nd round as he was projected to go late in the 4th. However, Minnesota saw a lot in the West Virginia QB and decided they did not want to risk missing him. So far Ray has looked good (although inconsistent) and the team is already grooming him to replace Kurt Warner when he retires (again). It appears as though the Christian Ponder era is over in Minnesota.

    2nd (20th) - MLB Christian Shepherd (MSU) 6-1 240

    Shepherd surprised a lot of people in the Vikings organization during the preseason. Minnesota acquired Colin McCarthy in the Jared Allen trade and he was expected to take over their middle linebacker duties. Shepherd played his way into starting consideration and could ultimately wind up as the team's MLB of the future.

    3rd (3rd) - OLB LaCraig Middlebrook (Syr) 6-2 237

    Middlebrook was another surprise during the preseason. He received a lot of playing time with Chad Greenway sitting and made the most of it. There are some around the Vikings camp that said they would be comfortable going into the season with Shepherd as a starter if needed. That says a lot about about the former Syracuse star.

    3rd (20th) - WR Reginald Thomas (Wisc) 5-11 190

    When Thomas was drafted it looked like the Vikings has acquired another Percy Harvin type player. However, after watching him in the preseason, it appears as though Thomas would be more Wes Welker than Harvin. Thomas doesn't have the breakaway speed and playmaking ability that Harvin possesses. What he does have is a solid grasp of the position and enough speed to separate from defenders when needed. Most teams would prefer two of their top receivers to be a little taller, but Thomas and Harvin could form a very deadly duo for the Vikings in the coming years, both on short passes and from the deep ball.

    3rd (31st) - CB Adonis Mack (Wyo) 6-1 187

    This is the first player the Vikings drafted who is not considered a starter (yet). Mack has above average coverage skills and good speed. He is very raw but he has the core skills that could land him significant playing time with some experience.

    4th (13th) - DE Kooper Cosbert (Idaho) 6-4 290

    Cosbert was another reach for the Vikings. NFL draft pundits doubted Cosbert would even be drafted and made very poignant cases for why he should not be. The Vikings weren't convinced though and took the former WWE star in the 4th round. It was a big gamble but one with a lot of upside should they be able to groom the former Idaho product.

    4th (22nd) - OLB Jimmy Brown (Lou) 6-3 235

    Brown nearly missed the cut in the final roster cutdown. However, the Vikings like his skill set and think he has the potential to develop into a productive player, especially on special teams. You would probably like a little more from your 4th rounders but if he develops quickly it could turn into a decent pick.

    6th (13th) - HB Darren Lyons (ECU) 6-1 197

    Lyons is a bit undersized which led to many teams ranking him very lowly on their draft boards. But the former East Carolina Pirate has tremendous speed, can catch the ball out of the backfield and has shown some ability as a return man. There is already talk around Vikings headquarters that Toby Gerhart could be on the way out to make room for the shifty speed back.

    6th (23rd) - DE Kileon Mitchell (Wisc) 6-5 279

    Mitchell could very well become the steal of the draft. While there were certainly a lot of great picks late in the draft, Mitchell could be among the best of the group. He led the Vikings with an astonishing 6 sacks in the preseason and seemed to dominate every time he was in. The forgotten man from Wisconsin is behind some quality ends in Brian Robison and Derrick Morgan. But he has all the skills to become a Justin Tuck type player (but with even better speed).
