Vikings select Oregon State DE in 3rd round

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. –The Minnesota Vikings selected defensive end Scott Crichton, of Oregon State, with pick No. 72 in the 2014 NFL Draft.

According to ESPN, he is known for a strong work ethic. He is a self-motivator and handles critiques well. He is above average against the run and in pass rush situations. He is an ideal fit for a 4-3 scheme, according to ESPN.

The pick was the Vikings first of two third-round selections. The second, No. 96, was part of the Percy Harvin trade with Seattle last year.
