The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to trade WR Percy Harvin to the Seattle Seahawks, and the return package reportedly includes Seattle's 2013 first-round pick (No. 25 overall).

That means the Seahawks have picked up one of the most dynamic playmakers in the league, and the Vikings now have three picks among the top 52 overall.

Minnesota will surely be in the market for a receiver, and many are likely thinking West Virginia's Tavon Austin and California's Keenan Allen are enticing options. Problem is, there is a good chance both will be off the board by the time the Vikings go on the clock at No. 23 overall, and the Tennessee duo of Cordarrelle Patterson and Justin Hunter are reaches at that point.

However, there are plenty of other needs for Minnesota to fill, and there is enough depth in the receiver class to pick up a solid option in the later part of the second round. With that in mind, here's what the Vikings might do with their first three picks.
