Troup Set To Visit

According to Gil Brandt of NFL.com, Central Florida defensive tackle Torrell Troup is among the players who wil visit the Vikings next week.

Troup is 6 foot 3 inches and 315 lbs.  If selected, the Vikings would surely have hopes that he could adequately fill the shoes (and pants) of Pat Williams.  At the Combine he ran a 5.1 forty and had 34 reps on the bench press.  After such a solid Combine showing, Troupe opted not owrk out at his Pro Day.

After slowly rising up draft boards all year long, it is expected that he gets drafted somewhere around the 3rd round.  However, he could sneak into the second round given his abilities and the importance placed on the nose tackle position in the current NFL. 

The Vikings would probably target him in the second round, and would be considered a gigantic steal if they somehow saw him fall to their third round position.
