Amik Robertson – CB (Louisiana Tech)

Is it in the realm of possibility that the Vikings take a third cornerback in this year’s NFL Draft? Looking at their current depth chart, the answer should be yes.

Minnesota did well in adding both Jeff Gladney and Cameron Dantzler so far in this draft. But with Mike Hughes being injury prone and Holton Hill being a bad decision away from another lengthy suspension, the Vikings could go to the well one more time.

If Minnesota does this, they’d have to consider this undersized playmaker from Lousiana Tech. Amik Robertson is a wee little fellow standing just 5-foot-8, but he’s an extremely aggressive corner who plays much bigger than his small stature.

Robertson is like that little dog who is always looking for a fight. He is an aggressive tackler and he has excellent ball skills. He was extremely productive during his days at Louisiana Tech as he racked up 184 tackles, 34 pass breakups, 14 interceptions, and four sacks.

The kid is a big play waiting to happen and he can change the outcome of games. Roberston’s height is likely the primary reason why he’s still on the board. But the Vikings should look at his production in addition to his high energy on the field and make him the third cornerback they add to their roster in this year’s draft.
