Vikings select RB Alexander Mattison with the final pick in the 3rd round

Utah State v Boise State

The Minnesota Vikings were movers and shakers on the second day of the draft trading back FOUR TIMES in the third round to net four extra picks and ultimately land the final pick on day two of the NFL Draft.

With that 102nd pick in this year's draft, Spielman and the Vikings selected Boise State RB Alexander Mattison.

Mattison was the third offensive player picked in the first three picks of this year's draft for the Minnesota Vikings and figures to replace Latavius Murray as the Thunder in the team's "Thunder & Lightning" running attack beside Dalvin Cook.

As a junior for Boise State last season Mattison ran for 1,415 yards and 27 touchdowns.
