Picks 23 and 25 aren't high first-round picks, but the Vikings have done well picking in the 20's in the past.

In the last 20 years the Vikings have made 10 picks in the 20's. The Star Tribune has the full list, but here are a few notable selections.

2012: Harrison Smith - No. 29 overall
2009: Percy Harvin - No. 22 overall
2000: Chris Hovan - No. 26 overall
1998: Randy Moss - No. 21 overall
1993: Robert Smith - No. 23 overall

This is the sixth time in franchise history the Vikings have owned two first-round picks. In 2005 they wound up with Troy Williamson and Erasmus James. Both turned out to be busts.

The NFL Draft begins Thursday at 7:00 p.m. Central Time.
