Minnesota Vikings Select Arkansas Offensive Lineman DeMarcus Love

New, comments

The Vikings turned their attention to the offensive line with the first of their four sixth round picks, as they selected offensive lineman DeMarcus Love out of the University of Arkansas.

Love can generously be described as a "big ol' boy," standing 6'4.5" and weighing in at around 320 pounds, and projects out to be a guard at the NFL level after playing tackle for the Razorbacks.

Love was a three-year starter for the Razorbacks, and has lined up at both tackle positions as well as guard. He was also all-SEC as a senior, which is nice when you consider that the SEC is generally considered to be the toughest conference in college football.

The Vikings now have two of the next four picks, as they select at #170 overall and #172 overall. They will also pick down at #200 for their compensatory selection in the sixth round.

Welcome to Minnesota, DeMarcus Love!
