We’re 76 days away from the 2013 NFL Draft and the Minnesota Vikings own the 23rd pick in the first round. Who will they take?

Let’s speculate. The player we’re interested in today is LSU linebacker Kevin Minter.

WalterFootball.com ranks Minter as the third best inside linebacker in the draft, behind Manti Te'o and Alex Ogletree. He finished last season with 130 tackles and was arguably LSU's most consistent defensive player.

Even if Minter isn't an option in the first-round, the Vikings might want to keep him on their radar.
