NFL Draft 2015

INSTANT REACTION: Vikings select OT Austin Shepherd

With the 228th selection in the 2015 NFL Draft, their first of the seventh round, the Vikings selected another offensive lineman.

Alabama tackle Austin Shepherd out of Alabama joins T.J. Clemmings and Tyrus Thompson as an apparent effort to bolster the offensive line in the later hours of the 2015 NFL Draft.

At 6′ 4″ and 325 pounds, Shepherd was a two year starter in college, replacing D.J. Fluker. His somewhat limited athletic ability means he will likely slide inside and be a potential contributor at the guard position.
