Friday Pick Lands Vikings Some Cornerback Help

After a Thursday that was all about the trades, Rick Spielman and the Vikings stayed patient with their lone second day pick.

At 66th overall, the Vikings decided to select Central Florida cornerback Josh Robinson who weighs in at 5’ 10” and 199 pounds.

Robinson figures to fit in well as a zone coverage corner, with great speed and consistent tackling abilities.  He has matched up real good against solid receivers in college, most notably A.J. Green.

He was the fastest of all players at the Scouting Combine and looked quite fluid in the other drills, too.

We will have more coming soon on this pick.
