Too good to pass up.

The Minnesota Vikings selected Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd with the 23rd-overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Floyd had been projected as high as third overall in many mock drafts.

Florida was the No. 4 run defense in the country and Floyd was a big part of it. He often commanded double-teams but still had 13 tackles for loss.

Floyd may start right away and play next to Kevin Williams this season
