For the second time in two years, the Minnesota Vikings have selected a UCLA linebacker, this time picking inside linebacker Eric Kendricks with the 45th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Kendricks joins fellow Bruin Anthony Barr in the Vikings' linebacker corps. Barr was a first round selection by the Vikings in the 2014 draft.

Kendricks was a three-year starter for UCLA under Jim Mora, and is UCLA's all-time leading tackler. He was the first Bruin selected in the 2015 draft, with both Owamagbe Odighizuwa and Brett Hundley still expected to be selected in the coming rounds.
