Vikings signed fourth-round TE Rhett Ellison to a four-year contract.

The 6'5", 251-pounder played tight end, fullback, and even the slot for USC. While he's not a long-term fantasy prospect, the Vikings drafted Ellison as the latest model in the Jim Kleinsasser H-back mold.

Vikings selected TE/FB Rhett Ellison with the No. 128 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

The son of former 49ers LB Riki Ellison, Rhett is a favorite of NFL Network's Mike Mayock among the H-back prospects. Ellison is a polished prospect with solid pass protection and fine hands, but he's more of a role player with limited speed, lacking in downfield ability. He'll help the Vikings more than fantasy leaguers.
