Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Vikings' picks: Round 2/54 -- Phil Loadholt, OT, 6-8, 343, Oklahoma...The Vikings had targeted Loadholt but weren't sure he would be around when they selected in the second round. When he was they grabbed him. A left tackle in college, Loadholt will move to the right side and compete for the starting job. There is an excellent chance he will beat out Ryan Cook and Artis Hicks and start as a rookie. Loadholt gave up only two sacks and one quarterback pressure on 438 pass plays in 2008. - by The Sports Xchange
