Vikings select C/G Pat Elflein, Ohio St.

Great pick. Wanted him or Feeney. Pretty sure I did say I was confident Spielman and Zim would assess the OL in the offseason. Reiff, Remmers and now Elflein....just sayin :tongue:

Seems like he has great work ethic and leadership. Wouldn't mind a Matt Birk 2.0.

I like this pick. I was equally happy with Elflein or Feeny. I think Rick is moving up on Cook and Elfrein cause he knew teams close to our picks wanted the same guys. Cinci would have loved Cook too, so Rick didnt want to have to make the choice of taking Mixon.

With Ellfein, they figured he was worth the move because his potential is slightly better then Feeney. I cant believe I like the way Rick played this draft so far, LOVE the players were got, think they were BPA at the times, and it wouldnt surprise me if rick makes a few more good picks. Probably mostly D players now.

Don't know much about him but hopefully he can come in and help this line. Seems solid if not spectacular. Pretty much what you could expect from this year's crop of oline men.

Glad we got a starting type offensive lineman. Not so sure about passing on Dan Feeney however. Time will tell, but I don't hate this pick.

Elflein was a center at OSU.

Wonder if he'll play center or RG for the Vikings.

He played G and C there. I bet they start with the veteran at C and Elflein at G, if he wins the job.
