DOUBLE EDIT: I wanted to do a post about this draft, but once again, one of our fine readers has already gone ahead and done it for us. And, as we always say. . .duplication of effort is ridiculous. - Chris
(EDIT): Credit goes to Marksp18 for this draft. Nice work.
I found a very interesting Mock Draft done over at SB Nation's Mocking the Draft. Here is the link to it if you would like to read the entire mock.
After the jump I will post the Viking's draft picks. It is not bad at all in my opinion.
#12 Anthony Castonzo, OT Boston College
#43 Ryan Mallet, QB Arkansas
4th round Buster Skrine, DB Tenn-Chat
5th round Jordan Cameron, TE Southern Cal
5th round Niles Paul, WR Nebraska
6th round Chris Conte, S Cal
6th round Rob Housler, TE FAU
7th round Brandon Hogan, DB West Virginia
7th round Alex Linnenkohl, C Oregon State
The first four picks are pretty solid in my opinion. I know I haven't been the biggest Mallet fan, and I still wouldn't draft him in the 1st round, it would be hard to argue with drafting him at #43.
I would change the second pick in the 5th round from Niles Paul to Cecil Shorts III and then draft Joe Lefeged, SS Rutgers in the 6th.
