Week 5 is here and some games have already been played. There are some games today that should be good to watch.

I want to see CeeDee Lamb, Charlie Heck vs Clemson, Benito Jones vs Alambama’s interior OL, Bryce Hall vs Chase Claypool, Khalil Davis vs Ohio State’s interior OL, Leki Fotu and Bradley Annae of Utah, and USC of course.

Why 3 offensive linemen? Well, Hill, Dozier, and Jones all could/should be gone. Plus, they only have Collins on the PS and he is unfortunately oft injured.

Why 2 WRs? The Vikings only have Beebe and Johnson to back up Thielen and Diggs. Next year’s WR class is very good especially at the top. I think it would be a good idea to grab one early and one late.

Adeniji and Niang may not fit the athletic profile totally but I think they can move good enough.

Fotu is a beast! If you get a chance check him out. The Vikings need someone to groom to take over for Joseph.

I think Weaver could go earlier as well as Hurts.

Here is an alternate mock ...

23: R1P23 OT WALKER LITTLE STANFORD

55: R2P23 G BEN BREDESON MICHIGAN

87: R3P23 CB TREVON DIGGS ALABAMA

106: R3P42 WR CHASE CLAYPOOL NOTRE DAME

129: R4P23 DL LEKI FOTU UTAH

201: R6P23 S TANNER MUSE CLEMSON

215: R6P37 EDGE BRADLEE ANAE UTAH

216: R7P1 WR KALIJA LIPSCOMB VANDERBILT

238: R7P23 QB JALEN HURTS OKLAHOMA

251: R7P36 EDGE ALTON ROBINSON SYRACUSE

254: R7P39 LB CALEB KELLY

I like this second one better as usual.

Enjoy the games!
