Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Running back Toby Gerhart -- The Vikings are confident Gerhart will be able to help fill the role that Chester Taylor played as Adrian Peterson's backup and also provide a bruising presence out of the backfield.
A closer look at the Vikings' picks: Round 2/51 -- Toby Gerhart, RB, 6-0, 231, Stanford: The Vikings thought enough of Gerhart that they traded their second- (No. 62) and third-round picks (No. 93) to Houston to move up 11 spots to grab him. Gerhart was the Heisman trophy runner-up last year as he rushed for 1,871 yards and 28 touchdowns. - by The Sports Xchange

11/12/15 - RB Toby Gerhart practiced in full with a groin injury but may not play because he was inactive last Sunday.
11/09/15 - RB Toby Gerhart was on the inactive list Sunday after he failed to score in four cracks from the 1-yard line in London against Buffalo. Coach Gus Bradley indicated Gerhart may have a few nicks that make it difficult for him on special teams.
11/08/15 - RB Toby Gerhart continued to tumble down the depth chart Sunday, when he was a healthy inactive for the Jaguars' 28-23 loss to the Jets. Gerhart was signed to be the Jaguars' featured back prior to last season but lost that job during the season to RB Denard Robinson. He was expected to serve as the short-yardage back in 2015 behind rookie RB T.J. Yeldon, but Gerhart was stuffed on four straight carries from the Buffalo Bills' 1-yard-line in the Jaguars' prior game, a 34-31 win in London on Oct. 25. This is the first time Gerhart has been a healthy inactive while with the Jaguars. Gerhart has 20 carries for 44 yards and three catches for 2 yards this season.
