Vikings sign 3 draft picks: Hodges, Mauti, Dawkins


EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have signed 3 of their nine draft picks: linebackers Gerald Hodges and Michael Mauti and defensive tackle Everett Dawkins.

The team announced the deals on Tuesday.

Hodges, who will play 1 of the outside spots, was picked in the fourth round out of Penn State. Mauti, whose position is in the middle, was a seventh-round selection, also from Penn State. Dawkins was taken in the seventh round out of Florida State. They'll all get rookie-standard 4-year contracts, slotted by draft position.

Last season, the Vikings signed 8 of their 10 draft picks by June 1.
