23rd selection

SHARRIF FLOYD

Defensive tackle, Florida 6-3, 297

Pluses: A third team All-America, he is versatile enough to play all along the defensive line in college. Will add youth to the Vikings defensive line.

Minuses: NFL.com reports his long legs are a disadvantage at the position, and his speed outside the box is questionable.

Last season: First-team All-SEC as a junior. Led the Gators with 13 tackles for loss. Finished three-year career with 4½ sacks. At the NFL Combine, ran a 4.92 40-yard dash.

25th selection

XAVIER RHODES

Cornerback, Florida State

6-2, 217

Pluses: A strong cover cornerback who likes to be physical and has good size.

Minuses: Not a strong tackler. Despite strong man-to-man skills, is not as effective in zone coverage.

Last season: As a junior, was first-team All-ACC and was a semifinalist for the Thorpe Award. Finished career with eight interceptions, three forced fumbles and 140 tackles, of which 112 were solo.

29th selection

CORDARRELLE

PATTERSON

Wide receiver, Tennessee

6-3, 205

Pluses: Big, fast and physical, he has all the tools to be an elite NFL receiver. Can return kicks, and set a Vols record for most all-purpose yards in a season.
