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.

Vikings' Danny Isidora: Going to Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings selected Isidora in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 180th overall.

Isidora (6-foot-3, 306 pounds) turned heads at the Combine with his 5.03-second 40-yard dash, establishing himself as one of the most athletic linemen in the draft. The Vikings will hope he sticks at guard.

Vikings' Rodney Adams: Headed to Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The VIkings selected Adams in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 170th overall.

Adams (6-foot-1, 189 pounds) is a lean wideout with standout running skills for the position. In addition to 67 catches for 822 yards and five touchdowns on 98 targets, he finished the 2016 season with 23 carries for 231 yards and five touchdowns. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.44 seconds at the Combine, so the explosiveness he showed in college should translate at the NFL level. He'll compete for a backup role at receiver.

Vikings' Ben Gedeon: Drafted by Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings selected Gedeon in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 120th overall.

Gedeon is a classic hard-nosed middle linebacker who racked up 94 tackles for Michigan in his lone season as a starter in 2016. He also showed an ability to cause havoc in the backfield with 15.0 tackles for loss. Athletically, he checks all the boxes with above average scores relative to his position in all of his combine tests. Gedeon will likely start out as a depth option at middle or weakside linebacker.

Vikings' Jaleel Johnson: Lands in Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings selected Johnson in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 109th overall.

Johnson adds another big body inside for the Vikings front, checking in at 6-3, 316. His sub par combine, including a mere 19 reps on the bench that ranked in just the fifth percentile among defensive linemen, made him a Day 3 pick. That said, he has impressive tape and was able to rush the passer from the interior with 7.5 sacks as a senior. Johnson figures to add depth at the right defensive tackle spot behind Sharrif Floyd, whose future is a bit cloudy due to nerve damage in his knee.
