Vikings agreed to terms with No. 120 overall pick LB Gerald Hodges on a four-year contract.
A pure outside 'backer, Hodges is currently penciled in on the weak side for Minnesota. Hodges is not an elite athlete (4.78 40-yard dash), but has adequate size (6-foot-1, 243 pounds) and is a strong tackler. He could develop into a multi-year starter. Tue, May 14, 2013 01:41:00 PM

Vikings selected Penn State OLB Gerald Hodges with the No. 120 overall pick.

Hodges (6-foot-1, 243) played outside 'backer in the Nittany Lions' 4-3 and registered 109 tackles -- 8.5 for loss -- seven pass breakups, two interceptions, and one forced fumble as a senior. He ran 4.78 at the Combine with a 1.67 ten-yard split and did 22 bench-press reps. Hodges can play both WILL and SAM and is a sure enough tackler to develop into a passable NFL starter. He was among the team leaders that impressively guided Penn State through the Jerry Sandusky scandal fallout.
