The Vikings picked Darrisaw with the 23rd overall pick Thursday night. They moved down nine spots with a familiar draft-night trade to stockpile more picks. Darrisaw is a late-blooming, athletic blocker at 6-foot-5 and 322 pounds. He was a second team All-American in 2020 who can fill a significant need at left tackle after Riley Reiff was released.

Darrisaw started Tech’s 2018 season-opener against Florida State at left tackle and went on to make 35 career starts — he missed only two games from injury over three years.
