Grading the Vikings 3rd Round Pick | Pat Elflein

Initial Reaction: Getting Elflein AND Cook without even having a 1st round pick??? Not too ….. shabby. Elflein was highly connected to the Vikings throughout the draft process and after the Cook pick I figured it was a long shot they would get him in round 3. The Ohio St. big man joins an offensive line in desperate need of both a guard and center, which … hold on to your hats … he plays both. While it isn’t 100% yet where he will play as a rookie, all that matters is he will play somewhere and big a big ole upgrade. Smart player who will be a good locker room guy who could start in the NFL for next 8+ years.

Disclaimer: I agree you can’t grade a player before they even put a jersey on, but what fun would that be?

Grade for this pick?
