Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State Seminoles (6-2, 217)
The Vikings fill another need with the 25th pick by selecting Florida State CB Xavier Rhodes. He is a very big, imposing cornerback with excellent press coverage skills and a player who fills the hole left by the departure of Antoine Winfield. Rhodes has enough size to play against the bigger wide receivers in the NFC North and he also possesses the foot speed to stay with the slot types as well. Unlike many cornerbacks who don't like to hit, Rhodes will step up and deliver big hits while defending the run.
