The chains of progress are moving.
The Minnesota Vikings now have their trio of first-round draft picks under contract, releasing a photo today of defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd signing his contract.
He was drafted 23rd overall out of the University of Florida.
Shortly after that Floyd's deal, cornerback Xavier Rhodes (25th overall) and wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson (29th overall) agreed to terms to cap an eventful round of negotiating for the Vikings.
The Vikings' training camp reporting date is Friday.
The Vikings have drawn solid reviews for their draft class.
