The Vikings close out the 2012 draft by taking Trevor Guyton, a defensive lineman from Cal. The report on Guyton is that he’s a run-stopping type with a strong lower body who can be an anchor. He played the nose in Cal’s 3-4 defense so even though he’s listed as a defensive end he can presumably play inside. If he has a role on this team this year it sounds like it will be as a short yardage guy. I don’t see him challenging Letroy Guion and Fred Evans for reps.
And that does it. Three days. 9 picks. Several trades. Lots of controversy. And a whole crapload of stuff to talk about for the next few months. And we haven’t even picked through the undrafted free agents yet! Could be some gems in there too. But for now, I’m gonna make me some buttered noodles and chill out. If I’m this tired imagine how tuckered the folks in the war room must be.
