  1. New 7 Rounder With Comp Picks - Updated 22nd Feb

    Positional need and flexibility (G/T) make Ford and Risner better fits in Minnesota than Bradbury. I like hitting the DL and OL trenches in rounds 2-3.
  2. 2019 Draft Talk

    You have been in a good spot to hit on needs/value with Ford and Risner going back to back and again with Fant and Smith. Both ending what I would say was that tier of OL and TE. You are going to have to change draft strategy for round 2.

    I thought you might have been targeting a Clemson DT, but as you said there is a lot of DL talent and value left. The second best TE and a difference maker in the passing game is a solid choice. Looking forward to round 2.
  4. Vikings209 Offseason

    It is always fun to look at a mock offseason. I like most of the moves with the current team--letting go of Sendejo, Remmers, getting a pick for Griffen, and probably saying so long to Rudolph. I would rather take a chance on Easton than have Compton back. Draft rounds 1-4 all look like solid hits. I would prefer to trade Rhodes over Waynes. With our current DB situation I would like to keep the more consistent player. With Hughes returning from injury, Hill a second year player, and an improving Alexander, I would rather pair them with a guy I can count on to be in the line-up almost every week over the more talent player who does have some injury/decline questions. I wouldn't be surprised to see Barr stay, but am not really of fan of what he produces at the price point. I do like Hodges as a part of the LB corp if Barr were to leave. Iupati doesn't seem like a fit to me. Thanks for putting this together.

    As you said there are still a few picks to go, but there are certainly players available at multiple positions. I see a few I would hope would be available. Keep up the good work.
  6. 2019 Draft Talk

    I like the Rhodes trade. I am also wondering who is available for pick 29?
  7. 2019 Draft Talk

    If you are talking pick 18, I see most of the likely candidates as guys who could play both G and T--Taylor, Ford, Risner, and even Little.
  8. 2019 Draft Talk

    For both the sake of some consistency for the upcoming season and for development, I'd prefer Reiff at LT. Give O'Neill another year in the NFL before a possible move to the left side. It seems the OL candidates at 18 have experience at G and T and most project more as G and RTs. To me that seems the most plausible way to stabilize the OL.
  9. 2019 Draft Talk

    IMO this team isn't in the position to play mad scientist with the OL for 2019-20. Ideally I would like to see Reiff hold down the LT position for one more year. Same for O'Neil at RT. I think most of the OL available at 18 have G/T flexibility, so are starting G candidates. My goal for next season would be to get players comfortable and settled along the OL, especially Elflein at C, O'Neil at T, and the rookies/FAs.

    Take the best OL available and go from there. I would make the decision on where to play guys once they got to camp.
  11. 2019 Sign, Draft or Promote: Starting RG

    What is the deal with Brett Jones? I thought he was a potential low-end stater or at least a decent back up. Not that I want him to start, just wondering what the situation is since he was acquired
  12. 2019 Draft Talk

    I am not automatically assuming Elflein can play guard (although it is a possibility). If he can't, the team may have upgraded one position, but will still have a big hole at another. I am also considering that taking a Guard like Lindstrom and leaving Elfleiin at Center is more effective that Bradbury and Elflein.
  13. 2019 Draft Talk

    I like how you are thinking. The only concern I would have with this is the Bradbury pick. I just don't know how he would fit with Elflein.
  14. Seven Rounds, Mr Fluffles V1

    I think you did a very good job of addressing needs for the Vikings, especially in a 7 round mock. Both Tillery and Isabella were good fits. Picking Bradbury in round one hit the biggest need, but I question whether he is a good fit on the IOL with current center Pat Elflein. I think both Risnor and Taylor would offer better position flexibility. Taking a LB in round 3 makes sense with Barr likely leaving, but I still think another OL (Hyatt, Herbig) would be a bigger need.
  15. 2019 Draft Talk

    As of right now I think all 5 would be solid value for pick 18. A number of mocks have two or 3 available around pick 18. Of course a lot will change between now and April.
