Vikings select Clemson cornerback Andrew Booth in 2nd round

Just like night one of the NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings opened up the second round by trading down.

On Friday night, the Vikings traded the 34th overall pick (2nd round) to Green Bay for two 2nd round picks – No. 53, No. 59 overall.

The Packers used the 34th pick to select North Dakota State wide receiver Christian Watson.

Then the Vikings traded up from 53rd to 42nd with the Indianapolis Colts. Minnesota used the 42nd pick to select Clemson cornerback Andrew Booth. Booth was First-Team All-ACC for the Tigers as a junior in 2021. He collected 37 tackles, five passes defended, and three interceptions in his final college season.

With the 59th overall pick in the second round, Minnesota then drafted LSU guard Ed Ingram and followed with Oklahoma linebacker Brian Asamoah in the third round.
