Now, he’ll head further up north to play for the Minnesota Vikings. Holmes was selected with pick No. 102 in the fourth round. At Ohio State, Holmes was a captain during his senior season, and was an Honorable Mention All-Big Ten selection.

Before his Buckeye days, Holmes led Lake Taylor to its first Class 4 state title in 2012.

Holmes was the second player drafted this year hailing from Hampton Roads. Derrick Nnadi was drafted in the second round by the Chiefs.
