2021 NFL Draft Grades: What do you think of the Minnesota Vikings’ selection of Kene Nwangwu?

Let us know your thoughts

NCAA Football: Iowa State at Kansas Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

With the 119th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings made a pick that likely surprised a lot of people by taking Iowa State running back Kene Nwangwu.

This pick does not appear to be so much about the offense for the Vikings as it does about special teams, as Nwangwu’s calling card is the kick return game. He holds pretty much every Iowa State record for kick returns and is among the Big 12’s all-time leaders in those categories as well. The Vikings have been searching for help in the return game for what seems like forever, and hopefully Nwangwu can do something to fix that.

The Vikings, as things stand now, still have two more picks in the fourth round, so we’ll see what they do with them. For now, however, we’d like to know what you think about the selection of Kene Nwangwu. Have at it, folks!
