Vikings Mock Drafts

Recommended Posts

Would be pretty stoked with this partial draft:

1.22 K'Lavon Chaisson, DE, LSU: Dynamic edge player was too good to pass up

1.25 Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia: Hopefully becomes a bookend tackle with O'Neill

2.58 Marlon Davidson, 3T, Auburn: Could provide the disruption we're looking for from a pass-rushing perspective. I'm unsure how his run defense is.

3.89 Van Jefferson, WR, Florida: Heard he's a great route-runner. We add a "burner" I think it would be a great start.

3.105 Michael Ojemudia, CB, Iowa: Good size and apparently thrives in zone coverage. 

4.132 Solomon Kindley, LG, Georgia: Was the OG next to Thomas at UGA. May not be as mobile as we'd like but it sound like he wouldn't get bullied back into Cousins.

-Round 1, #22 overall (acquired from Buffalo) CJ Henderson CB Florida (Pro Comp:  Antoine Winfield)

-Round 1, #25 overall Austin Jackson OT USC (Pro Comp:  Brian O’Neill)

-Round 2, #58 overall Denzel Mims WR Baylor (Pro Comp:  Michael Thomas) or Tee Higgins WR Clemson (Pro Comp: Sidney Rice) (Other WRs jumped him in several rankings, but is still a good player)

-(If Anthony Harris is traded for a 2nd round pick) Antoine Winfield Jr. S Minnesota (Pro Comp:  Tyrann Mathieu)

-Round 3, #89 overall Tyler Biadasz OG Wisconsin (Pro Comp:  Stefen Wisniewski) (Projected to fall to bottom of 2nd or top of 3rd so might need to move to get him)

-Round 3, #105 overall (Compensatory for loss of Sheldon Richardson) Raekwon Davis DT Alabama (Pro Comp:  Kevin Williams with Danielle Hunters college pass rushing skills) (CBS.com’s 103 overall prospect)

-Round 4, #132 overall Cameron Dantzler CB Mississippi State (Pro Comp:  Darius Slay) (should go higher, but ran a slow 40)

 

With this scenario we may have to trade some of our later picks to move around a little bit to get some of these players.

Here is the way I would go:

 

1st pick 22- Austin Jackson OT - starts at LT day one. Reiff gets kicked back into guard where he has experience.

 

1st pick 25- Yetur Gross-Matos DE- replaces Griffin 

 

TRADE- our 2nd ( 58 ), 6th ( 205 ), 7th ( 239), to Atlanta for pick 47..

 

2nd pick 47 - Justin Madubuike DT- Justin is upgrades our D-line even more.

 

3rd ( 89 ) - Saahdiq Charles OT/OG - replaces Kline on the right side.

 

3rd ( 105 ) - Josiah Scott CB - will compete for a starting CB job right away.

 

TRADE - our 4th ( 132 ) and 5th ( 155 ) to Arizona for pick 114.

 

4th ( 114 ) - Tyler Johnson WR - We found our next WR opposite Thelien.

 

6th ( pick 207 ) - Cole McDonald QB - Man, I have a really good feeling about Cole. Let him sit and learn for a year ( maybe 2 ) and I  believe He could become a very good QB in this league.

 

7th ( 249 ) - Tyler Clark DT - Adding depth

 

7th ( 253 ) - John Reid CB - more depth at CB

 

Like I said multiple times, we need to fix both lines on this team. I believe this draft could turn us in the right direction. I see us walking away with 5 potential starts in this draft..

Given how the board fell up to #23, I made a trade back with Detroit for picks #35 & #67 (Detroit moving up for Love)

#25 - Yetur Gross-Matos (EDGE - Penn State)
#35 - Jalen Reagor (WR - TCU)
#58 - Austin Jackson (T - USC)
#67 - Damon Arnette (CB - Ohio State)
#89 - Ben Bartch (G/T - St Johns)

Trade up with Denver for #95 in return for #105 & #132

#95 - Larrell Murchison (DT - NC State)
#155 - Tyler Johnson (WR - Minnesota)
#201 - Tanner Muse (S - Clemson)
#205 - AJ Green (CB - Oklahoma State)
#219 - Mykal Walker (LB - Fresno State)
#249 - Stephen Sullivan (TE - LSU)
#253 - James Smith-Williams (EDGE - NC State)

Not sure Josh Jones at OT is a fit but hard to argue I guess, they would have to cut Reiff or move him to guard for this to work and not sure either one of those happen.  With Pierce I am far less interesting in a DT high in the draft, and give me Gallimore over Blacklock.  Johnson I like at CB but there are better ones out there, and based on the position it is almost a must to get two CBs in this draft.  Moss at TE would be awesome but probably not going to happen, same with Johnson at WR.  Dugger is not a need at safety since Smith and Harris are signed for next year, but would be a nice get if Harris is traded or something.  Jennings gets injured a ton and not sure he is a fit for a 4/3, same with Hill.  

 

 

This is the current Vikings draft I have as of today, changes a lot.  Would love Epenesa 1st round but YGM would work as well.  I think CB is a massive need to hopefully they go after it.  WR was a little after thought but Gabriel Davis has star potential and Jennings is a big strong dude.  Cleveland I think could play OG or OT and Lewis is a fine OG as well and could be a good value.  


22. Minnesota (From Buffalo)  - AJ Epenesa Iowa JR DE
25. Minnesota  - Jeff Gladney TCU RS SR CB
58. Minnesota  - Bryce Hall Virginia SR CB
89. Minnesota -Ezra Cleveland Boise State RS JR OT
*105. Minnesota - Damien Lewis LSU SR OG
132. Minnesota- Gabriel Davis UCF JR WR
167. Minnesota (From Buffalo) - Robert Windsor Penn State RS SR DT
201. Minnesota (From Buffalo) - Jauan Jennings Tennessee RS SR WR  
205. Minnesota- Josh Metellus Michigan SR S
219. Minnesota (From Miami) -Tyler Clark Georgia SR DT
*249. Minnesota - Michael Pinckney Miami FL SR OLB
*253. Minnesota - Ahmad Wagner Kentucky SR TE/WR

 

See if the Vikings address the WR or CB position in free agency but not sure they have any money left to be honest.  If Jefferson falls to them in the 1st round though 22nd pick it would be very very hard not to take him.  Hopefully they trade back to collect more value at OG, WR or CB in the 2nd round and get rid of one of those 1st round picks.  

 

 

Will be curious to see how much they like Bisi Johnson, Chad Beebe, Alexander Hollins and Bralon Addison.   Hollins I think they like a lot if he puts on some weight and Bisi impressed no doubt that 1st year.  So as long as they maybe get a burner WR at some point they will be fine with just one in the draft.  I hope they take two OL and two CB but two WRs is an options no doubt.

#249 - Stephen Sullivan (TE - LSU)
#253 - James Smith-Williams (EDGE - NC State)

I do not know much about Bartch but to get a local college guy would be cool no doubt.  Arnette I would like at CB but not totally sold on him as a starting CB.  YGM I love and he would be great combo with Hunter.  Reagor I like a ton also because of his return ability on special teams.  Jackson I like but not sure he falls out of the 1st round.  Murchison I am not a giant fan of but would be ok with.  Tanner Muse I feel is a LB in the NFL but has some athletic ability that makes him interesting.  AJ Green I like a lot and he could possible convert to safety also, long kid who is very underrated I feel.  Johnson would be great to get him but not sure that will happen.  Stephen Sullivan no thank you, he sucked on LSU honestly and is not thick enough to be a TE I feel.  Smith-Williams is highly overrated and is getting talk just based on combine numbers, on the field one barely notices him I feel and I would not want him even late.

Sullivan and Smith-Williams are athletic upside/character guys who their coaches rave about in terms of work ethic and willingness to do what is needed for their teams. 
 

for deep 7th round picks that’s typically what we’ve gone with and a reason I have their names pencilled in as potential fits for us.

I did a 3 round Mock on TDN and couldn't believe what happen. I ask you fellow Viking fans, If one of the top QB's fall to us at 22 do we pull the trigger?

I did a 1 rounder a month ago and Tua was there but I figured it must have been some kind of weird glitch, I tonight just did a 3 round and Justin Herbert was sitting there at 22.

My draft ended up looking like this.

22. J. Herbert

25 A. Winfield jr

58 D. Arnette

89. P. Tega Wanogho

105. S. Lemieux

(I know we need to address WR at some point in this draft but overall I wouldn't be to bummed if the draft play out something like this

I don't love Jefferson but overall I would be pretty stoked on these picks as well

If J. Herbert is somehow available at #22, its a no brainer to take him, and let him learn behind Cousins for 1-2 years. This could also extend Rick\Zim window with the team.
