Vikings Daily Mock 4.2

Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

Another day. Another mock. I appreciate all the feedback including any I may feel are critical. Those are welcome too. Mocks should be mocked!

I use the http://fanspeak.com/ontheclock/ site to do the draft. They have a premium feature that allows for trades and they are more reasonable than the ones at first-pick.com. They have 3 big boards you can choose to use for the player rankings (fanspeak, walterfootball, & optimumscouting).

In this mock I used the fanspeak big board.

1.8  DE JADEVEON CLOWNEY  SOUTH CAROLINA
2.8  DT RA’SHEDE HAGEMAN  MINNESOTA
3.8  ILB CHRISTIAN JONES  FLORIDA STATE
3.32  RB CARLOS HYDE  OHIO STATE
4.8  QB A.J. MCCARRON  ALABAMA
5.8  WR BRUCE ELLINGTON  SOUTH CAROLINA
6.8  CB WALT AIKENS  LIBERTY
7.8  G RYAN GROY  WISCONSIN

I did not make any trades in this mock because I could not pass on the players that were there.

In the 1st round, if Clowney is there, then there is no way I pass.  I could have attempted to trade down and still get Manziel or trade up with future picks to get him or Carr later.  But the pattern in these mocks is Arizona taking a QB and the Browns taking one at 26 (when the Browns do not take one at #4).

Clowney is too good to pass up.  Robison turns 32 next April.  He can actually be traded this year and the Vikings would save 1 mil on the cap.  I do not know if any team would trade for him but they might.

In round 2, I had a choice between Hageman, Van Noy, Lee, or maybe Moses.  Marqise Lee would have been OK too but I wanted to go for the big boys.  Having Clowney and Hageman inserted into the defensive line group is AWESOME!  That is one heck of a front no?

I had to get a LB in round 3 and Christian Jones is still one of my favorites.  He is being downgraded for doing whatever was necessary for Florida State.  They had him rushing the passer as a DE last year quite often.  If he would have stayed as a LB then his stock would be higher IMHO.

I could have went with someone else besides Carlos Hyde at the end of round 3 but he is just too tempting to pass up.  Plus, I am worried about AP a little bit.  We do not know what could happen two years from now.  Having a back like Hyde would seem to be more assuring.  Of course, backs can be found later in the draft too or even in free agency.  I may decide to fore-go taking a back until later in the draft.

Obviously, I need to get a QB and McCarron in round 4 sounds about right to me (he probably will go higher).  I thought about waiting until round 5 and get Brettt Smith but felt he would not be there.

I rounded it out with a WR, CB prospect with nice length, and a guard.
