2012 NFL Draft Results: Vikings Select USC FB Rhett Ellison With 4th Round Pick

The fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft is nearing its end. Saturday's selections are flying fast and furious, with the teams beginning to look toward the truly under-the-radar selections. The Minnesota Vikings, for example, have selected USC fullback Rhett Ellison, a massive player who they're hoping will beef up their backfield.

126. Houston Texans: Nebraska Cornhuskers defensive tackle Jared Crick, 6'4, 279 pounds

Mocking The Draft on Crick:

Strengths: Has optimum length for a defensive lineman and knows how to use it. A college tackle who may be best playing left defensive end in the NFL. His speed and quickness would be considered exemplary for a 3-4 end or 4-3 tackle. Give good effort.

Weaknesses: Crick has trouble anchoring in the run game and will get overpowered by bigger guards. Doesn't have great shedding ability. Solely a three-technique under tackle in a 4-3 system. Best season came when he lined up next to Ndamukong Suh. Injuries issues. Missed most of senior season with a torn pectoral muscle and spring practice in 2011 with a knee injury.

127. New York Giants: Cincinnati Bearcats tight end Adrien Robinson, 6'4, 264 pounds

128. Minnesota Vikings: USC Trojans fullback Rhett Ellison, 6'5, 251 pounds

129. Oakland Raiders: San Diego St. Aztecs outside linebacker Miles Burris, 6'2, 246 pounds

130. Baltimore Ravens: South Carolina St. FS Christian Thompson, 6'0, 211 pounds
