Edit: Bortles was just taken. I've updated the poll, but I have to pick soon because I'm on the clock. Thank you guys so much for your help with this.
Hey guys, sorry to pollute your fanpost section with this worthless garbage (I'll take it down soon). I'm an Eagles fan living in Wisconsin, so naturally I am also a Vikings fan. I strategically gained the rights to choose the Vikings pick in Bleeding Green Nations community mock draft. I have a decent understanding of the team's needs, but would like to get the your opinion.
Teddy Bridgewater, Sammy Watkins, Jadeveon Clowney, Johnny Manziel, Khalil Mack, and Greg Robinson have all already been taken. We're still waiting on the Buccaneers pick to come in.
In particular, I would like to know your opinion on
Blake Bortles, Mike Evans, Anthony Barr, C.J. Mosley, Derek Carr, Jake Matthews...
I understand that OG and CB are big needs, but I don't consider anybody in this draft worth taking in the top 10 from either of those positions. I like C.J. Mosley and my other friends who are Vikings fans like him as well, but since I can't trade back in this mock, I feel like I would be reaching if I took him at 8.
I've heard mixed things on both Bortles and Carr, and I haven't done much research myself on the QB position this year. I think Bortles seems like the best value pick at this point in the mock, but I need some reassurance. I do not want to draft Christian Ponder 2.0. I love Mike Evans, but with Patterson and Jennings, he would be more of a luxury pick. Picking Anthony Barr would be a good balance of value and need. The only problem is that I think he would be more useful in a 3-4, and it currently very raw.
So what do you guys think? Right now my list goes: 1)
Bortles 2) Barr 3) Evans.
I remade the poll so that the people who voted for Bortles before can vote again.
