7th Round Pick- Devante Downs- LB, California

Post by Pondering Her Percy » Sat Apr 28, 2018 5:46 pm

Vikings selected California ILB Devante Downs with the No. 225 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.
One of the more notable Combine snubs, Downs (6'3/245) garnered PFF's highest pass-rushing grade among Pac 12 inside linebackers last season. He totaled 211 tackles over 39 career appearances for the Bruins including 65 as a senior in 2017. Downs will probably have to settle for special teams work in year one.

Wish we would have taken Bo Scarborugh RB Alabama running back in the 7th.
