With the 5th pick of the 6th round and the 175th choice overall, the Vikings selected former Georgia K Blair Walsh.
Walsh was extremely accurate as a sophomore, hitting 40 of 46 tries during those two seasons. He was 15 of 23 as a freshman and 21 of 35 as a senior, with 14 of his misses coming from 40+ yards. He led the nation in FG tries last year, and converted a 56-yard try as well.
As of now, the Vikings have three selections remaining in the draft, all of them in the 7th round.
