Scouts Inc.'s Steve Muench takes a look today at the Minnesota Vikings' options for the upcoming NFL draft, Insider and a pair of ACC players could be in the picture in Rounds 2 and 3.

The Vikings' second pick is No. 35, and with injury concerns with Percy Harvin and Michael Jenkins, Georgia Tech's Stephen Hill could be in play.
There should be good value at receiver at the top of the second round, and NFL combine standout Stephen Hill (89) from Georgia Tech could slide to the Vikings. Hill (6-4, 215) has the frame and top-end speed (4.36 in the 40-yard dash) to develop into a vertical playmaker who can open up the short-to-intermediate routes for Harvin, who is at his best after the catch.

In the third round, at the No. 66 spot, Muench thinks the Vikings will look to help their poor pass defense.
Virginia Tech's Jayron Hosley (78) is a name to keep an eye on. Hosley (5-10, 178) needs to get stronger and a hamstring injury that slowed him in 2011 raises concerns about his durability, but he has the instincts, burst and ball skills to push for early playing time and quickly develop into a playmaker.
