I wonder if they decline Wayne's option now

Can't see them doing that. Maybe they trade him. I thought Waynes was doing a good job this year. Now the team will either be playing him as their third CB or they just used their first pick on a guy that will be their third CB.

Is Hernandez even a fit? 

Given how much the nickel CB plays, he could be the third CB as a rookie.

Im glad the Vikes are looking at future needs on the defense rather than reaching for a need now (OL). 

So, when is Zimmer (the DB guru), going to start developing defensive backs that aren’t top 50 picks? 

When is this team going to actually starting putting a focus on improving the weak areas of the team, instead of bolstering the strong units?

How is it a reach to take a starter?

Taking a starter that doesn't fit (zone blocking) seems like a reach.

I like the idea of getting a CB a year before he is needed. If we can get a starter on the line tomorrow it'll be all good imo

we have to look at how out whole draft shakes out, not just the first player taken. if we get quality OL too, then it's all a win.

i'm not an O-Line expert but i don't think he fits the best. he's more of a mauler, while we've shifted to more athletic linemen for a zone scheme.

There are no staining IL available? Seems unlikely

Hernandez would not have been a reach.

For those of you not familiar with Hughes, one of my favorite youtubers actually mocked Hughes to us and broke him down (at around 59:40 if the link doesn't work)

As much as we need OL help....I LOVE defensive picks!

Seems like we're back at the BPA vs need argument when most argue to go BPA. I'm curious to see how the board looks but this might be a case of BPA over need. What OL is a clearly better pick? There was a run on interior OL.

Yet, both Williams and Daniels would have also been instant starters, and they do fit into a zone blocking scheme.

That's what has been said since I joined this site, that you can find late round OL. How has that worked?

For a supposed DB guru, Zimmer is really insecure in his DBs.

2nd round wouldn't be late round OL.

but i hear the concerns, they're valid.
