ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - The Vikings don't have all draft picks signed just yet, but they do have the most important two under contract.

Tuesday was a busy day for the Vikings as they agreed to five year contracts with LB Anthony Barr and QB Teddy Bridgewater. Barr, the linebacker from UCLA, was taken with the 9th pick in the draft, while Louisville Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was taken with the 32nd pick following a trade up with the Seattle Seahawks. 
 
Both rookies impressed during the rookie camp last weekend, with Head Coach Mike Zimmer complimenting both players to the media. 
 
The contracts are both for four years, with a team option for a fifth season. The Vikings start Organized Team Activities May 28th, with mini-camp in June.
