NFL Draft 2018: Daniel Carlson Drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the 5th Round

NCAA Football: Arkansas State at Auburn John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

With the 30th pick in the 5th round of the NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings select Daniel Carlson!

Daniel Carlson was a continuation of a long, great tradition of Auburn kickers from 2014-2017. As we all know, he set numerous records for Auburn (and even the SEC), and he held a beloved place in our heart during his time here. Good ole #Legatron is going to make the ___ very happy with an elite combination of power and accuracy from the place-kicking position, and he even can fill in as a punter in a pinch, too.

Daniel has a chance to make a long and successful NFL career as a kicker. We certainly will be rooting him on here at College and Mag. Be sure to check out his Draft profile here.

War Eagle, Daniel, and best of luck!
