2022 Draft Talk

Recommended Posts

I waited until Cinco de Mayo again, but as we did last year, let's begin the discussion on the 2022 draft prospects here, so we can follow them when the 2021 college football season gets underway...We probably won't have to suck for Sam or reek for Rattler because of the addition of Mond in the 2021 Draft, but based on how it looks right now, we might have to stink for Stingley or pine for Pickens...  Discuss away!

Is this going to be the first draft in ages where we don’t have to talk about drafting OL early?

I wouldn't rule it out yet because of Bradbury!  🤣

Seriously though, I hope so...I hope we don't have to discuss it for the next few years, because I'm exhausted over that discussion.  We'll likely have to go back to discussing about CBs again and probably WRs (with the age of Thielen).  Or will we have to talk about more pass rushers again...or a LB to replace Barr...

I’d guess edge will be the big discussion next year. But even that conversation will be a challenge with Wonnum, Jones, Robinson, Willekes all being young players with a ton to prove.

If MN is picking near the top 10 again, I’d expect QB to be the main topic because I doubt Cousins will be viewed anymore positively and Mond will be viewed as just a third rounder.

PP, Alexander, and Hughes not signed into 2022 with Gladney in potential legal trouble?  I'll give ya one guess where we're going. 

In all seriousness, S, CB, LB, QB, amd WR could all be on the board with the 1st

I’d have to agree with this.

Sure would be nice, but I wouldn't hold your breath. The team still only has 1 out of 5 offensive line positions filled with a player that has proven he can do it in the league at an above average level.

Here’s my hope: Surratt shows enough to let us let Barr walk with no worry, our OL gels and eliminates talk of using early draft picks, and Xavier Woods excels in our scheme and resigns long-term with the team. 
 

Then we focus on a CB or a young stud DE.

Well in 2022 the Vikings have some big time free agents.

Harrison Smith who I would hate to see go, Anthony Barr is more likely done.  O'Neill is up for a new contract, so is obviously Peterson, Alexander, Hughes and Woods but depends on how they play.  But to whom it may concern here is my introductory list of players available.  Would hate to go DB again early but if Peterson, Alexander and Woods are all gone they would have some huge holes because those three all start arguably next year in a base nickel package.
