4.130 - MIN: James Lynch DT/Baylor

Recommended Posts

Also if he grows out his beard he might, he would look so legit in a Vikes uni with a red beard. Like Tormund.

This is going to be one of the gems I think

Yes he will be. He simply has a knack for getting to the QB. He also is good on FG block unit - 2 blocked kicks.

any specific reason why he dropped to mid 4th Round despite having really good numbers?

I think low ceiling and a question of where he specifically fits? Might not ever be a 10+ sack guy but a consistent 6-7 once he gets his role?

Biased obviously but I would have taken him in the 3rd and not felt bad at all.

 

Where do you guys see him fitting in Zimmer’s system? He’s going to pressure the QB.


Not sure if this adds any extra excitement but he was committed to USC and then TCU before we finally flipped him, so other bigger programs loved him too. Though apparently Patterson wanted him to play OL.

Kinda wish 99 was available...could really follow in Hovan's footsteps as the Vikings redhead.

Interior pass rusher

One thing we suffered from last year was our interior DL getting push but no sacks. QB's had all the time in the world against us more times than not. If not for Hunter, they would have had ALL day every time they dropped back. Lynch is a guy who has an extreme nack for getting to the QB from the DT position. Something that is HIGHLY valuable and can't always be coached 100%. This pick makes all the sense in the world. Love it.

Replaces Odinigbo if Odinigbo replaces Griffen.

Awesome.

There's been talk of us possible adding more under front and odd front looks with adding Dom Capers to our staff as a consultant, so possible some 5-technique odd/closed looks too.

Would have loved both, different style players - Taylor is a true edge player (we got Wonnum which is nice)

Lynch is someone you can move around from base end to a pass rushing 1T

I just thought it was interesting that Jeremiah had them back to back
