The Vikings officially signed second round pick Brian O’Neill, the team announced. The tackle was selected with the No. 62 overall selection.
O’Neill is now the fifth member of the Vikings draft class to ink his deal, following the signings of kicker Daniel Carlson, guard Colby Gossett, defensive end Ade Aruna, and linebacker Devante Downs on Thursday. As of this writing, Minnesota has just three rookies to go before wrapping up the entire class: cornerback Mike Hughes, defensive tackle Jalyn Holmes, and tight end Tyler Conklin.
O’Neill impressed evaluators with his athleticism during the draft process and his long wingspan should help him adjust to the game at the pro level. However, there are some concerns about consistency in his technique.
