Eden Prairie, MN (Sports Network) - The Minnesota Vikings have signed each of their three first-round draft picks -- defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, cornerback Xavier Rhodes and wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson.

Terms of the deals were undisclosed.

Floyd, selected with the 23rd overall pick in April, recorded 115 tackles, including 26 tackles for loss, and 4 1/2 sacks in three seasons at Florida. He was an All-SEC selection in 2012 after leading the Gators with 13 tackles for loss.

Rhodes, the 25th pick of the first round, was an All-ACC pick at Florida State last year. He finished his career with 140 tackles and eight interceptions.

Patterson, chosen 29th overall, played just one season at Tennessee after transferring from junior college and caught 46 passes for 778 yards with five touchdowns for the Volunteers. He added a kickoff return and a punt return for scores, leading the SEC with an average of 158.43 all-purpose yards per game.
