Vikings’ 2nd Pick Is Florida State CB Xavier Rhodes

For the second time tonight, the Minnesota Vikings have added a defensive player who should start from Week One.

First Minnesota drafted defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd with the 23rd overall pick, and now the Vikings have drafted Xavier Rhodes, a cornerback from Florida State, with the 25th overall pick.

After saying goodbye to veteran cornerback Antoine Winfield, the Vikings wanted to add a youngster at the position. Rhodes is a solid choice who should be able to start as a rookie.
