Neville Gallimore – DT (Oklahoma)
Neville Gallimore opened a lot of eyes when he weighed in at 304 pounds, which is about 20 pounds heavier than his listed college playing weight. It didn’t slow him down one bit though, as the big man got rolling and ran a very impressive 40-yard dash in 4.79 seconds. That’s a crazy good time for a man so large.
Gallimore was also extremely impressive in the linemen drills showing violent hands and great lateral movement and explosion. He has been nailing the pre-draft process so far, following up a solid Senior Bowl with his stellar showing at this year’s Combine.
Gallimore has been on the Vikings’ radar as they are in need of another defensive tackle and one who can create interior pressure. While that wasn’t the bread and butter of Gallimore’s game, with his explosion and overall speed, he is definitely someone who could excel in the role as the three-technique penetrating defensive tackle for Minnesota.
Gallimore was once seen as a reach at pick No. 25. But after the Senior Bowl and now his performance at the Combine, the Vikings will be hoping he lasts until they are on the clock near the end of the first round.
