The Vikings had two first round picks in the 2012 NFL draft, and they have finally inked the later of the two to a contract.

Harrison Smith, the Safety out of Notre Dame, was a player the Vikings staff and organization fell in love with at the Senior Bowl. The deal is a four-year deal with an option for a fifth. It’s rumoured that his deal will be slightly larger than last year’s 29th (Harrison’s same spot in the draft) pick Gabe Carimi (4 years, $7.06 million).

It’s pretty likely that Harrison will be a day one starter, and he could start opposite former teammate Robert Blanton (a fifth rounder in the 2012 draft). This leaves the Vikings just needing to sign 4th overall Matt Kalil and CB Josh Robinson.
