Vikings Sign 2nd-Round Pick Brian O'Neill to Contract

EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings signed second-round draft pick Brian O'Neill to a contract Friday morning.

The offensive tackle out of the University of Pittsburgh was the 62nd overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-7, 297-pound lineman started all 12 games at left tackle for the Panthers as a junior in 2017.

O'Neill was a First-Team All-ACC selection by conference coaches and the Associated Press and a Third-Team All-ACC selection by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. He also had one carry for 10 rushing yards.

A former tight end, O'Neill had three career carries for 39 yards and two touchdowns in his collegiate career.

He was one of the top performers at his position group at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, where he topped all offensive linemen in the 40-yard dash, clocking in at 4.82 seconds.

He also came in first among offensive linemen after running the 3-cone drill in 7.14 seconds. His 4.5-second time in the 20-yard shuttle was good enough for fourth among linemen.

Minnesota has now signed five members of its eight-man draft class.
