The Vikings do have some potential depth issues at safety behind Harrison Smith and Anthony Harris, and Metellus seems like someone that might be able to carve out a role for himself.
The Vikings drafted S Josh Metellus from Michigan with the No. 205 overall pick (sixth round). They had only two safeties on the roster.@dpbrugler is a big fan.

When you get to this point in the draft, you’re taking fliers on a lot of guys, and it seems like that’s what the Vikings are doing here. Metellus might be another one of those guys that works his way up from the practice squad or special teams to be a contributor in the future.
