And with their tenth and final pick in the 2014 NFL draft, the Minnesota Vikings once again went defense.
The Vikings select cornerback Jabari Price from the University of North Carolina.
An honorable mention All-ACC performer in 2013, the 6-foot, 200 pound Price clocked a 4.44 40 at the combine. He has a decent size-speed combination and projects as a potential man cover corner.
The Vikings’ defensive secondary gets a boost through this draft after the selections of Price, Antone Exum and Randall James.
The Vikings also added a piece to the defensive line late with the selection of Shamar Stephen.
Mike Zimmer will have multiple options from which to choose when training camp rolls around. The Vikings will of course also add the usual complement of undrafted free agents.
Will any of these late round picks and UDFAs turn into gold for Minnesota?
They’re certainly hoping so.
Lots and lots for Viking fans to discuss, argue about, love and hate after yet another intrigue-filled, sometimes crazy, sometimes incredibly tedious draft.
