EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have selected Central Florida cornerback Josh Robinson in the third round of the NFL draft.
The Vikings took Robinson Friday with the 66th overall pick.
The 5-foot-10, 199-pound Robinson ran a 4.35-second 40-yard dash at the scouting combine.
The Vikings gave up their second-rounder in the trade with Baltimore to move into the latter part of the first round Thursday, sending the 35th overall selection to the Ravens. So they had a longer wait than usual. But Robinson fit another need on their roster.
Three players who might've enticed the Vikings went with the 3 of the four picks before No. 66, Vanderbilt cornerback Casey Hayward to Green Bay, LSU wide receiver Rueben Randle to the New York Giants and Montana cornerback Trumaine Johnson to St. Louis.
