Vikings guard Yankey will search for strength in offseason

David Yankey was a big name, relative to his position, heading into the 2014 NFL Draft and a big man, literally. When the Minnesota Vikings finally secured the Stanford guard with a fifth-round pick, some wondered why Yankey had slid to the fifth round.
