Vikings' Jack Tocho: Picked by Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings selected Tocho in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Drat, 245th overall.

Tocho (6-feet, 202 pounds) was a four-year contributor at North Carolina State who might lack the long speed to stick at corner in the NFL. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.54 seconds at the Combine, but perhaps he can move to safety if that's an issue.

Vikings' Elijah Lee: Headed to Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings selected Lee in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 232nd overall.

Lee led Kansas State in tackling each of the last two years, topping out at 110 total tackles this past season. At 6-foot-3, 228 pounds, he's on the lighter side for an NFL linebacker, but he could earn himself a role down the line if he's able to add bulk.

Vikings' Stacey Coley: Picked by Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings selected Coley in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 219th overall.

Coley is a talented player who showed considerable potential at multiple points at Miami, but injuries, work ethic, and character questions harmed his NFL projection. At 6-feet, 195 pounds, Coley ran a 4.45-second 40-yard dash at the Combine, which shows he has the speed necessary to stick at the NFL if he maximizes his potential. He finished his Miami career with 166 receptions for 2,218 yards and 20 touchdowns in 48 games.

Vikings' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Scooped up by Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings selected Odenigbo in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 220th overall.

Odenigbo is undersized for an end at just 258 points, and his lack of arm length will make it difficult for him to shed blocks. However, he is an impressive athlete with above-average metrics in nearly every Combine drill. Minnesota's depth up front means that Odenigbo has his work cut out for him if he wants to make the 53-man roster as a rookie.

Vikings' Bucky Hodges: Falls to sixth round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings selected Hodges in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 201st overall.

This is perhaps the most surprising faller in this year's draft. Hodges is a rare athlete at tight end and, despite a tendency for drops, proved productive as well. Even if the league doubts his skills as a tight end, it's surprising that a team wouldn't take him sooner for special teams play alone -- this is a 6-foot-6, 257-pounds player with a 4.57-second 40-yard dash, 39-inch vertical, and 134-inch broad jump. Unfortunately, even if he proves his doubters wrong, the Minnesota offense likely won't afford him many targets as long as Kyle Rudolph is around.
