The Minnesota Vikings opted to build the offensive depth chart in the fifth round, selecting South Florida wide receiver Rodney Adams with the 170th-overall selection. Adams is a dual-threat option for the Vikings, both as a vertical wide receiver and potential kick returner.

At USF in 2016, he notched five reception touchdowns and five rushing touchdowns. Adams also averaged 29.1 yards per kick return last season, and that’s likely how he’ll make early contributions for the Vikings. Although he’s a relative unknown among fans in the live chat and on Twitter, he recently visited Winter Park and worked out with his new teammate, receiver Adam Thielen.
