Who did the  Minnesota Vikings select in the 2017 NFL Draft? Here is the full list of draft picks including their weight and expert analysis.

The 2017 NFL Draft has come to an end. All the college players who will be joining their team through being selected in the annual event have been revealed and fans of the Minnesota Vikings now know which ones will be joining their favorite team.

However, the Vikings had a huge draft class with numerous picks in the late rounds of the draft despite not having a first round selection during the draft. But who are these guys? What position do they play? What is their size? And what does NFL.com say?

Here is a list of all the players selected including their draft spot, height, weight and analysis from an expert starting with the second round pick of the Minnesota Vikings at the 2017 NFL Draft:

Dalvin Cook, Running Back – Florida St.

  • Round 2 Pick 9 (#41 overall)
  • 5′ 10 / 210 pounds
  • “Rick Spielman and Mike Zimmer did their homework and vetted all of these running backs. Dalvin Cook is a first-round talent who slipped into the second round solely because of the off-the-field issues. … When you put his tape on, he’s special. He’ll make a difference in Minnesota.” – Mike Mayock

Pat Elfein, Center – Ohio State

  • Round 3 Pick 6 (#70 overall)
  • 6’3″ / 303 pounds
  • “One of the most technically advanced offensive lineman in this draft. He’s not the best athlete in the world, but he’s technically proficient. He’s one of those guys that will play 10 years in the NFL. I love the fact that he can play center and both guards. Really solid pick by the Vikings.” – Mike Mayock

Jaleel Johnson, Defensive Tackle – Iowa

  • Round 4 Pick 2 (#109 overall)
  • 6’3″ / 316 pounds
  • “Vikings draft some insurance for Shariff Floyd. Johnson brings some versatility to the Vikings’ DL but he’s a run-stuffer first with some penetrating ability on pass downs.” –Mark Dulgerian

Ben Gedeon, Middle Linebacker – Michigan

  • Round 4 Pick 14 (#120 overall)
  • 6’2″ / 244 pounds
  • “Gedeon is a depth addition to a linebacker crew that needed it. He’ll start out on special teams coverage units, but he has the opportunity to work himself into the rotation as early as next season.” –Mark Dulgerian

Rodney Adams, Wide Receiver – South Florida

  • Round 5 Pick 27 (#170 overall)
  • 6’1″ / 189 pounds
  • “Adams adds speed to a receiver unit that struggled to stretch the field when Stefon Diggs was hurt. The 28th ranked offense needs all the weapons it can get. –Mark Dulgerian”

Danny Isidora, Guard – Miami

  • Round 5 Pick 37 (#180 overall)
  • 6’3″ / 306 pounds
  • “The Vikings fielded arguably the worst offensive line unit in the NFL last season. Isidora should at least provide some competition in camp entering the season.” –Mark Dulgerian

Bucky Hodges, Tight End – Virginia Tech

  • Round 6 Pick 17 (#201 overall)
  • 6’6″ / 257 pounds
  • “Hodges can be a red zone matchup weapon for a offense that struggled to put the ball in the paint last year.” –Mark Dulgerian

Stacy Coley, Wide Receiver – Miami

  • Round 7 Pick 1 (#219 overall)
  • 6’0″ / 195 pounds
  • “Coley is another field-stretcher for the Vikings offense. The talent is there to earn a rotational role but he’ll need to show coaches he wants to compete early on if he’s going to stick around.” –Mark Dulgerian

Ifeadi Odenigbo, Defensive Line – Northwestern

  • Round 7, Pick 2 (#220 overall)
  • 6’3″ / 258 pounds
  • “Odenigbo is a depth addition to a defensive line unit with plenty of questions relating the future of its current members.” –Mark Dulgerian

More from The Viking Age

Elijah Lee, Linebacker – Kansas State

  • Round 7 Pick 14 (#232 overall)
  • 6’3″ / 228 pounds
  • “Lee will get camp looks as a special teams contributor, but the Vikings could really use his speed and overall athleticism at the 2nd level of their defense.” –Mark Dulgerian

Jack Tohco, CB N.C. State

  • Round 7 Pick 27 (#245 overall)
  • 6’0″ / 202 pounds
