Don't know much about him but seems like there could have been better value at 117

Overview

Wonnum has experience playing standing or with a hand down but is best suited as a rush linebacker in a 3-4. He's not a premium pass rusher but possesses desirable length and slippery body turn to create pressure with secondary rush effort or when activated in a twisting front. He carries decent core strength but might always struggle as a run defender due to below-average bend. His lack of speed and suddenness could work against him and his ceiling might be as a good backup with rotational potential off the edge.

If he’s BPA for Spielman, hows there better value?

know nothing about him to be honest, but besides his agility scores is a good athlete which fits the Vikings' mold.

 

definitely willing to give the vikings the benefit of the doubt when it comes to EDGE guys.

Just throw him in the weight room with Hunter and the film room with Patterson and he'll be a good player for us.

I don't know anything about him.

So that means Andre Patterson will turn him into a 10 year starter.

Explosive and long. 

After Robison, Griffen and Hunter, I'm all about 4th round DE's with traits.

Patterson and Zimmer should be able to turn him into a player.

This is one of those “do what you do” picks. They’ve done such a good job drafting these types of defensive ends that there’s really no reason to question the pick.

2 time team captain, ridiculous arm length, and hand size

When the highlight tape shows him playing in a 3-point, 2-point, off ball linebacker, blocking kicks, sacking the QB, chasing down a ball carrier from the backside, and intercepting the ball... yeah, we can work with that.
