Kinda disappointed that they havent shown our shiny new draft room.

One of the best corners on the board. He's fast and physical, I really like the pick. He could buck the Zimmer trend and get meaningful playing time on special teams as a rookie.

Love the pick

Hughes was a pick for the Future we just gave Rhodes a huge contract and Waynes is playing himself into a contract range we aren't going to pay with rhodes already getting huge money.

If he doesn’t take a starting job as a rookie it’s a stupid decision.

Not in love with the pick (yet!), but willing to give a chance. Should help immediately in return game.

Feel like I felt with the Barr pick in 2014. I had no clue we would go Hughes in the first. I don’t know a lot about him either. I do however, have a lot of faith in the Vikings draft process. It may take awhile, but I’m sure I will embrace Hughes much like I embrace Barr.

I like a CB pick, much preferred over OL at this point. Alexander hasn't impressed and I don't see how you pay Waynes $9m next year with all the FAs.

Don't hate Hughes as a player at all but really dislike the pick. I fell in love with Hernandez and heard others that studied Williams talk him up a lot. Both were there. We picked a player at a position that will be hard for him to crack the top two.

It's hard to doubt the Vikings picking defensive players....

Remember when we were bummed we took Waynes? Now he's a solid #2 CB.

If Spielman and ZImmer are taking this guy, they must see something in him.
