Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida Gators (6-3, 303)
The Vikings get solid value with the selection of Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd. He is quick and athletic and is able to consistently get gap penetration and disrupt plays in the backfield. Floyd is highly competitive as he makes many plays chasing down the ball carrier in pursuit. With long time defensive tackle Kevin Williams nearing the end of a great career, Floyd is the long-term replacement.
