When the Minnesota Vikings lost a number of starting members of their secondary in free agency this offseason, they knew heading into the NFL Draft, it was an area that was of top concern.

The Vikings took care of that when they selected TCU's Jeff Gladney with the No. 31 overall pick in the first round.

There is plenty for Vikings fans to be excited about when it comes to Gladney, and his college highlights prove it, especially this one particular hit.

Gladney has the coverage ability, but he also proves in this clip he can make an open-field tackle, and a decisive one at that. For a team that struggled to defend the pass last season, Gladney could provide a major pop the secondary in Minnesota has been missing.
