As per my usual, I will provide a mock which always gets the most attention. The YOUTS nowadays! I tell ya.

The Vikings picked up an extra 3rd round pick with the Ngakoue trade. It could push defensive end up the draft needs list. I think they will extend Odenigbo and could do it before the season is over. They also have Wonnum, Holmes, and Willekes.

I still think QB has to be high on the list. If they wait until late then that all but signals they truly “have not lost faith” in Cousins.

Trade

Browns receive 1.8 & 4.8

Vikings receive 1.19, 2.19, & 3.18

Cowboys receive 1.19

Vikings receive 1.21 & 4.34

Jaguars receive 3.38

Vikings receive 4.3 & 7.3

49ers receive 4.24 & 7.3

Vikings receive 4.17

Broncos receive 6.8

Vikings receive 7.4 & 7.10
