  1. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    So, thoughts on this?: Trade pick 89 for G Joe Thuney Draft a LT Josh Jones Cut Riley Reiff Jones-Thuney-Bradbury-Samia-O’Neill
  2. Not really a fan of the Vikings draft. Fulton is fine, but Delpit only makes sense if Harris leaves. Then still better picks on the board. Same for Kindley in round 2.
  3. BayRaider 2020 Semi-Final Version Mock Draft

    While what you say of Aiyuk may be true, WR is not the best value in the conservative run-first Zimmer/Kubiak Offense (see reason why Diggs wanted out). With so many needs it feels a bit like a luxury pick that has the team trying to play catch up at OL and DL the rest of the draft. I do like taking a shot with Hurts. Do you envision Weaver as a plug and play?

    The Vikings draft is a disaster
  5. I’d say that’s an A grade for the Vikings
  6. Everson Griffin Voids Final 3 Years of Deal

    I agree. Also bumps up DE on the needs with CB, DT, OL, WR.

    I think you hit well on the first 7 picks. The only thing I would prefer is another OL in round 3 or 4.
  8. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    I look at the roster situation and see needs for starters or high end contributors at these positions: OL: Need at least 1 starter at G or T. DE: Need a starter or rotational player if Griffen is gone CB: Lots of uncertainty here both starting and depth WR: Need a 2/3 WR opposite Thielen DT: Interior pass rush help is needed. With that in mind, I think trading down with one of the first round picks is a good strategy to consider. There seems to be some positional depth and rankings in the early first through early fourth that might allow the team to address more needs.

    First, I would say any position that doesn't address need at OL, DL, CB, WR. I have seen a few mock with the Vikings taking a LB like Murray or Queen---Fine players, but not need/value. Second, my least favorite paring of those needs would be WR and CB assuming equally rated players. Based on mocks, my least favorite pairing might be Reagor and Diggs. I like Reagor, but not at 25. Not a fan of Diggs. My favorite might be Kinlaw (doubt he would fall that far) and Thomas (who does seem to be sliding a bit.)

    I have both Blacklock and Gallimore as late 1st-early 2nd. Madibuike and Davidison as mind-late 2nd.
  11. 2020 Draft Talk

    I haven't done that much research, but right now: Blacklock in round 1, preferable 25. Gallimore, Davidson, and Madubuike in round 2.

    As someone mentioned earlier, perhaps there is something with Kline's health. He has two concussions last season. Perhaps they see this as a medical concern, or the possibility of a personal choice to leave the game earlier. IDK, just throwing out a thought.
  13. Vikings Mock Drafts

    I like the first 4 picks. I would say another WR is needed unless the need is filled in FA.
  14. 2020 7 Round Mock Draft Updated 3/29/20

    For Minnesota I would have preferred DT and OL with the two firsts (although WR and CB certainly make sense), but getting Prince and Lemieux addresses OL well.
  15. Vikings trade WR Diggs to Bills

    It's not personal. It's business. It would have been nice to have a happy and content Diggs, but he wasn't. The team probably made the best of a less than ideal situation. Now they have the opportunity to make this team better.
