The Minnesota Vikings have signed three more draft picks, including punter Jeff Locke of UCLA.

The Vikings announced the signings on Wednesday. Locke was taken in the fifth round to replace longtime punter Chris Kluwe, who was released last week.

The team also signed sixth-round draft choice Jeff Baca, a guard from UCLA, and seventh-rounder Travis Bond, a guard from North Carolina.

The Vikings have signed six draft picks in the last two days, but the biggest deals are still to come. The last three players to sign from this year's class are all first-round picks.

They drafted Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, Florida State cornerback Xavier Rhodes and Tennesee receiver Cordarrelle Patterson.
