With the 18th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft the Vikings selected North Carolina State C Garrett Bradbury.
Bradbury came to Raleigh as a tight end in 2014, redshirting at that position after excelling there in high school. He missed the following year's spring workouts with an injury, moved to guard before the 2015 season, and then played in 11 games as a reserve that year. Bradbury started all 13 games at left guard in 2016, and then earned honorable mention All-ACC honors as a junior as a 13-game starter in the pivot. He won the team's 2017 award for vital contribution in an unsung role. Bradbury was no longer unsung as a senior, as the full-time starter won the Rimington Trophy as the nation's top center and received first-team All-ACC and Associated Press All-American honors.
