Vikings Mock Drafts

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.

Justin Herbert is trash and taking a QB in the first round this year would be really dumb...  if you want a QB that badly trade back to get more picks and target Fromm or Eason.

Nicely done!!! Don't know who was available at each spot, but looks like you had to be thinking BPA. When teams lock in drafting a certain position is when mistakes are made, i.e. Ponder.

Don't think Epenesa will be a target for us, personally - project him more as a 4/5 tech end in an odd front.

Prioritized the trenches in this one and selected multiple WR's and DB's in the mid-late rounds

What crap simulator was this done with?  Yes it would be a freaking amazing draft, Wirfs and Ruiz and Nick Harris?  No way Harris drops that far or Ruiz for that matter.  Would be an amazing draft though no doubt but absolutely not realistic at all.

 

 

This is what I have them going for right now realistically, Simpson dropping to them in the 2nd which would be ideal.  


22. Minnesota (From Buffalo)  - AJ Epenesa Iowa JR DE
25. Minnesota  - Jeff Gladney TCU RS SR CB
58. Minnesota  - John Simpson Clemson SR OG
89. Minnesota - Antonio Gandy-Golden Liberty SR WR
*105. Minnesota - Damien Lewis LSU SR OG
132. Minnesota- Darnay Holmes UCLA RS JR CB
167. Minnesota (From Buffalo) - Robert Windsor Penn State RS SR DT
201. Minnesota (From Buffalo) - JR Reed Georgia RS SR S  
205. Minnesota- Collin Johnson Texas SR WR
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

Yeah this would be the absolute jackpot but not sure it is realistic at all.  Getting Andrew Thomas would be amazing, not to mention Epenesa, Arnette, and Biadasz.  Lawrence at DT would be ok but is not nearly as good as some others around, and with Pierce signing DT is not nearly as big of a need either until later in the draft.  That would be crazy good especially Thomas and Biadasz.  But I feel there are too many teams 2nd round in massive need of a center, Miami, Denver, Atlanta, interior OL in Baltimore, and possibly Houston as well.  No way Biadasz falls like some sites have him falling.  Gordon I think would be a wasted pick though but Proche is amazing and doubt he falls to the 7th round.  Muse would be fun to have a dude that athletic and versatile.

I think he could easily play with the Vikings and is not nearly as unathletic as he showed at the combine.  Kid has quickness off the ball and is a wildly productive pass rusher and uses his hands well.  I would love to get him but would not mind YGM either.

How do you post the Vikings logo with your post?

I am having issues posting images.

Please don't. In my opinion it is unnecessary.

Chad Rueter from NFL.com just put out a 4 round mock and has 3 guys that I really like, DL Raekwon Davis, OL Tyler Biadasz, and CB Cameron Dantzler, all falling to the 4th round.  I had them all 3rd or later on my mock, but Wasn’t sure if they’d be there.  It makes me feel a little more comfortable that they could go in that range now.
