The Vikings have dire needs and high expectations for only the third defensive back they have taken in the first round.

The vikings continue to tell all us purple homers that they are adding talent to the defensive backfield and yet they continue to get worse year after year on the defensive side of the ball. This year will be no different, shuffling free agent washed up veteran bums around every year and inserting rookies into the starting line up is not the answer!!!

Great pick. He possibly could have fallen to us in the second round, but we needed a safety badly, so why risk it? We still have three 4th round picks anyway.

About time. I've watched a terrible secondary for 20 years wondering when we would do something about it. Miss Joey Browner...

Good story, Chip. Watched the presser yesterday and Harrison is a guy one can root for. Vikings fans are going to love this guy. He's a 3H Player: Hard-nosed, Hustles, Hits.

He could be another Paul Krause. Glad Vikings moved up to get him.
