2018 NFL Draft Thread - Day 2

Recommended Posts

Austin Corbett is who I’m predicting the Vikings will grab in the 2nd round. We may even see a slight trade up to secure the guy they want.

Will Hernandez - G - UTEP
Connor Williams - T - Texas
James Daniels - C - Iowa
Tyrell Crosby - T - Oregon
Austin Corbett - G - Nevada
Braden Smith - G - Auburn
Jamarco Jones - T - Ohio State

 

These are about the only o-linemen left that I would project as immediate starter quality linemen.

This is my list as well

Getting one of Hernandez, Williams, or Daniels would be ideal, but highly unlikely late 2nd.

I think the strategy of going OL in round 1 would pay off if we could get either Corbett or Crosby.

Smith and Jones are my bail out options.

I'm prepared for a trade down from our 2nd round pick to high-mid 3rd round.

Why?

The biggest issue with not taking an offensive lineman at 30 is that now they pretty much forced their hand into grabbing one in round two, and it’s likely going to cost them more than simply the 62nd overall pick.

Cause I think their will be an early run/mini run on OL ... and we won't want to part with resources to move up.

Once we're on the clock... the OL available we might be able to get 8 picks later for example.... so they decide to move down, and acquire another pick.

Last year Spielman put together one of his best drafts without a first round pick.  If day 2 is anywhere near last year's, I'll be happy.

I actually wouldn't mind that either.  I suspect that Williams and Hernandez will go early here in the 2nd rd, with Daniels maybe slipping to the middle of the round.  They may be able to trade back and pick up an extra pick and still get O'Neill, Crosby, Smith or Corbett.

I'll re-ask the question here ... what is the lowest you would accept in a trade for Waynes.

It's possible we may/may not [offset potential] get a 3rd round compensatory pick for Waynes two years from now

I wouldn't accept less than a 1st round pick.

I'd take a third. Not sure id move him for anything less. As a young CB on the open market, no way he sees less than $12 million per year.

26 Connor Williams - T - Texas
25 Will Hernandez - G - UTEP
13 Harold Landry - EDGE - Boston College
47 Austin Corbett - G - Nevada
29 Maurice Hurst - DT - Michigan
30 James Daniels - C - Iowa
38 Dallas Goedert - TE - South Dakota St
14 Derrius Guice - RB - LSU
39 Justin Reid - S - Stanford
61 Mason Rudolph - QB - OK State
