  1. 2019 Draft Talk

    By pick 18, there just doesn't seem to be an excuse to not come away with a quality OL. One of Dillard, Williams, Lindstrom, Bradbury or Ford should be there. That would be unbelievable to see all gone by 18 and each player has a legit case as a top 20 selection.
  2. 2019 Draft Talk

    Might be unlikely but I think it's a near necessity given the current state of the OL.
  3. My last 2019 Mock (three-rounder)

    I'd rather have Bradbury. The Vikes don't need a Left Tackle. Riley Reiff is more than competent and I don't think Little is good enough value to need to take a Tackle at that spot. The Vikes need interior OL help right now. Sure Reiff could move inside if a tackle is drafted, but if we're talking best OL available, I'd think Bradbury or Lindstrom or Risner would be higher than Little. DT is s good pick in round two and I'm fine with a WR in round 3. I'd prefer to see another OL in rounds two or three but I won't argue against the Tillery pick.

    I think it works for any guard potentially taken at 18 though, so this doesn't have to be exclusive to Lindstrom. You want your best one at RG, typically. I'd rather go with the better player at RG than the more experienced player. What good is experience if you're ranked just as bad as Mike Remmers.

    I don't think Kline should dictate anything. Kline's upside at RG is what, a slightly below average starter? If Lindstrom is potentially a top 10 RG (based on college position and top 20 pick potential) why risk it by moving him? How much better or worse would Kline be at LG vs RG? He's a below average starter at best at RG and that is his supposed better position. Maybe Kline at LG is better for the Vikes and Kline because RG is generally valued higher and a more difficult position.
  6. Cypher's One (And Only) Mock of the Year

    I think it's highly unlikely MN looks at TEs in round one. Lots of talent still at OL to pick from. If you're looking for a non OL option for MN, Christian Wilkins would be a good pick. McCoy in round two helps.
  7. The If Pete Prisco is Right mock w/ Explanations

    Good spot for the Vikes to be in, Bradbury vs Dillard. I'd prefer the interior help so I like the Bradbury selection.
  8. Let's Delve Into Dalvin Cook

    Need to get him some help up front first.
  9. 2019 7 Round Mock draft

    I'd rather have McCoy in round two. An interior line of Elflein, McCoy, Ford would be solid. I get the DE pick in round two, but MN is three deep at the position for 2019, so I'd need to see really good value to pull the trigger this early. Smith is a nice value pick in round 3 and fills a long term need. Id probably grab a WR or DT in round 4.

    I think the decision to keep Rudolph kind of cements TE as a non draft need. I don't think they draft one unless they're getting great value. Conklin seems just as viable as most of the mid round options. I was all for releasing Rudolph and trying to do more along the OL but that never happened, so I think we're stuck with the current TE group one more year.
  11. Official 2019 Vikings Schedule

    You have to remember, they've been going at it since camp in August too. I've never paid too much attention to the timing of the bye, but I always prefer sometime after week 6.
  12. 2019 Draft Talk

    I like it too but I'd rather use the 2nd or 3rd on the RG of the present. I'm struggling to have confidence in Kline.
  13. 2019 Draft Talk

    I don't think much seperates the OL you listed. Some will get pushed higher than others due to team preference, but at the end of the day there doesn't seem to be a a standout blue chipper. I guess if you like any of the players you listed as a day one starter, what's the harm in taking that player at 18 (versus trading down). Maximizing number of draft picks is certainly a viable strategy, but you're not going to get high picks moving down a few spots in round one. You're talking maybe late fourth and fifth round picks. Moving down to 28-32 is way too big of a jump for me.
  14. 2019 Draft Talk

    Unless they feel he's a starter and have him on their board for pick 18. I'd imagine one of the top 5 OL should be available at 18. Value wise, most of them are extremely close anyway. It's hard to say it's a reach and even so, we might be talking a few picks, at which point, who cares.
  15. Draft Lead-up Question 4: Position Of RAGE

    I went with WR. Just doesn't make sense when you have two top 10 WRs on the roster already. I could see RB as a more valid option than WR at this point given that Cook hasn't exactly lived up to his selection (granted due to injuries) but I see a fairly average talent in Cook. But I know next to nothing of this RB class so it's not likely, I don't see any RBs mocked high to be part of the conversation as a value pick. Sadly, I'd be more on board with CB over these two spots.
