EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Vikings have two picks in the first round of the NFL draft and one big hole in the middle of their defense.

The Vikings have vowed to find their starting middle linebacker in this year's draft, and Notre Dame's Manti Te'o could be available when they're on the clock with the 23rd and 25th selections Thursday night.

The Vikings have an extra first-rounder from Seattle for trading Percy Harvin. They have 11 selections in the seven-round draft, including six of the first 120 picks, with needs at wide receiver, cornerback and defensive tackle to address beyond middle linebacker.

Vikings general manager Rick Spielmanhas said he's not overly concerned about the girlfriend hoax that turned Te'o into a national controversy.
