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
