Former Northwestern defensive end Ifeadi Odenigbo is now a Minnesota Viking.

Odenigbo — who was second in the Big Ten with 10 sacks last season — was selected by the Vikings with the No. 220 pick in the seventh round of the NFL Draft Saturday afternoon.

He joins Anthony Walker Jr. — who went in the fifth round to the Indianapolis Colts — as the second Wildcat taken in the Draft.

A Centerville, Ohio native, Odenigbo finished his college career with 23.5 sacks, good for second in program history. He will likely play primarily on passing downs for the Vikings.
