No. 29 Minnesota Vikings: FS Harrison Smith, Notre Dame -- Smith, who has good size for his position at 6-foot-3 and 213 pounds, is a versatile defender expected to see plenty of action in zone coverage. His only weakness is covering man to man, but most scouts believe he's ready to play now at the NFL level, particulary in a zone scheme.

Comment: – Minnesota’s secondary was a mess last season, so the Vikings felt compelled to trade back into the round and take the No. 2 safety.
