The Vikings play more of a zone-based defensive scheme, but Rhodes and 6-2 veteran Chris Cook could give them more man, press options in the future. QUOTE TO NOTE: "I believe anywhere above Florida is cold." -- Florida State cornerback Xavier Rhodes, the Vikings' pick at No. 25 and a person who has never lived north of Tallahassee. - The Sports Xchange
