NEW YORK — Georgia Southern star Jerick McKinnon is a Minnesota Viking.
Late Friday night, with the 32nd pick of the third round of the NFL Draft, McKinnon was selected 96th overall.
A versatile running back, McKinnon played quarterback, running back, wide receiver, cornerback and safety, as well as kick returner for a Georgia Southern team that made it to the semifinals of the Football Championship Subdivision three years in a row.
The Vikings addressed needs all over the roster in the first two days of the draft, including McKinnon, who could fill the void created when Adrian Peterson's backup, Toby Gerhart, went to Jacksonville in free agency. McKinnon rushed for 1,050 yards and 12 touchdowns last season.
In other picks Friday:
— Houston had 20 hours to think about the first pick of the second round, then went for a blocker. The Texans selected UCLA guard Xavier Su'a-Filo, who joins the first overall pick, defensive disrupter Jadeveon Clowney of South Carolina, in Houston. The two of them can have fun colliding against each other in minicamps and training camp. The 6-foot-4, 307-pound Su'a-Filo, who went on a Mormon mission while in college, also has played tackle.
— The Cowboys took Boise State defensive end Demarcus Lawrence, who they hope will emulate their departed sacks leader with the same first name, DeMarcus Ware, now with Denver. "I'm my own Demarcus," Lawrence said. "I don't like to try to be nobody else. I'm going to be me, and I'm going to do it well."
— Cleveland, more active than any team in the first round, added a protector for Johnny Manziel by grabbing guard Joel Bitonio of Nevada, who also can play tackle or center. The Browns caused the biggest stir on opening night when they traded up to No. 22 to get Johnny Football. "I think he's a heck of a quarterback," Bitonio said. "Hopefully, he comes in and he's ready to compete and just ready to work and do well for the Cleveland Browns."
Cleveland did not choose any receivers even though Josh Gordon is reportedly facing suspension.
by the NFL for violating the league's drug policy again. Gordon was suspended for the first two games of 2013, but still led the league with 1,646 yards receiving in 14 games. He had 87 catches and nine touchdowns.
— Eastern Illinois QB Jimmy Garoppolo, a star on the FCS level from the school that produced Tony Romo, went to New England near the end of the second round. Could he be the heir to Tom Brady, who Garoppolo says has been his favorite NFL player? "I feel good about it," Garoppolo said. "Whether I was coming in as the starter or as the backup, I'm going to go in and approach it the same way. I'm going to go out there and try to get better each and every day. That's what good football players do."
— After Washington selected Virginia tackle Morgan Moses, who was on hand at the draft, with the 66th pick, Moses joked: "I thought my phone was broken." Several mock drafts had Moses going in the first round.
The teams already were busy on the trade block, with five in the first 75 minutes of the second round. There were only five all through the opening round.
It took 54 selections, a draft record, for a running back to go. Bishop Sankey of Washington was chosen by the Titans, who cut Chris Johnson this spring. Two more went in the next three selections: Jeremy Hill of LSU to Cincinnati, and Carlos Hyde of Ohio State to San Francisco.
