After a flurry of activity at the 2016 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings have drafted a small school tight end for the second year in a row.

With the 188th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings have drafted David Morgan, a tight end from the University of Texas-San Antonio.

Since I know very little about this particular player, let me allow the folks from NFL.com to tell you a little bit about him.

Lunch­-pail tight end whose versatility, consistency and production landed him a second-team All-American nod. Morgan's lack of quickness will hurt his ability to get open as a receiver, but his willingness to block and potential to become a move tight end who can handle fullback responsibilities should help his cause on the third day of the draft.

Sounds like a relatively solid pick to me. He'll be competing for responsibilities as a blocking tight end with the Vikings.

We'll get you updated on all of the activity that led to the Vikings making this pick after dropping down two spots.

Welcome to Minnesota, David Morgan!
