2010 NFL Draft: Minnesota Vikings Select Minnesota LB Nate Triplett With the 167th Overall Pick

The Vikings got pick #167 as a compensatory pick, which means they couldn't deal it away.  They used the pick to select a hometown guy in Minnesota linebacker Nate Triplett.

Triplett stands 6'3" and weighs around 250 pounds.  He projects to be an inside linebacker, and had 105 tackles, 5 pass breakups, and 2 interceptions last year for a Gopher defense that. . .well, let's not sugar-coat this.  They were pretty bad.

I was really, really hoping to hear the name "Myron Rolle" with this pick, but we did not.

As of now, the Vikings have three picks remaining. . .a sixth-round selection at #199 overall, and two seventh-round picks, #214 (received from Detroit) and #237.  Stay tuned to see what they do with those picks!
