    Round 4: Vikings select Iowa State RB Kene Nwangwu with the No. 119 overall pick

    KENE NWANGWU
    RB, MINNESOTA VIKINGS
    May 1, 2021, 12:51 PM ET

    Vikings selected Iowa State RB Kene Nwangwu with the No. 119 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

    Nwangwu (6’0/201) was a three-star recruit and four-year part-time player at Iowa State. Stuck behind three-down workhorses David Montgomery and Breece Hall, Nwangwu only had 150 career offensive touches (143 carries, 7 carries), but at least set the Cyclones’ kickoff return record (26.85 yards) on 92 career returns. His special teams success stems from his 98th percentile Adjusted SPARQ athleticism (4.31 forty), both of which give him increased odds of making a 53-man roster in the NFL. Nwangwu, a mechanical engineer major, is the definition of a deep sleeper despite the obvious production and age (23) red flags. Nwangwu will replace Mike Boone as the Vikings' No. 3 back behind Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison.

    Really looking forward to seeing what they find to do with this kid. He was considered by many to potentially be one of the best sleepers in the draft (whatever that actually means).

    Plus, we don't know what happens when Mattison's contract is up...and how much he'd expect.
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    I feel like they may be down on Mattison. Rookie year he was pretty damn good spelling Cook but almost seemed to regress and oft injured last season. Provided little to no production when Cook was out.

    I actually was hoping we would signed Brieda or Gio Bernard when they were available.
