In preparation for the mock, I have to look at the moves made (or not) by the team and the recent excellent performance against the hated Packers. Ezra Cleveland played excellent and received a 81.1 grade from PFF. If he continues this level of play, and why wouldn’t they keep him at guard, then the right guard spot could be settled.

Riley Reiff graded out at 82.9 vs the Packers which was higher than Cleveland. Reiff is grading out at #38 amongst all tackles (right and left) and is rated 25th as a pass blocker and 59th as a run blocker. The Vikings could feel his level of play is sufficient though. The conundrum is his 13.95 mil cap hit next year. It is hard to see them leaving that as is. I expect them to ask him to take another cut which he may not be willing to accept if he continues his solid play. They may decide to extend him a couple of years. It’s a tough call especially if they believe Udoh will be ready. Maybe in that case they move O’Neill over to the left side (I wouldn’t)?

I could see the Vikings drafting a tackle early if they are moving on from Reiff and keeping Cleveland and right guard. That would push any guard drafted to the mid to late rounds. I hope they find a decent free agent but realize they could decide to stick with Dozier who will be a free agent and surely will want more than the $840,000 he is receiving this year.

You have to look at the safety position and come to the realization that either Harris or Smith will be gone next year. I expect the team to extend Smith a couple of years. Smith has a 73.3 grade from PFF which is 23rd. Harris has a 64.6 grade from PFF which is 34th which is going to hurt him some in contract negotiations. The Vikings do not have much depth behind them either. They currently have Josh Metellus and Curtis Riley on the active roster. They have Miles Dorn and Luther Kirk on the practice squad. They have George Iloka on IR too. Safety could be a position of moderate need in next year’s draft or in free agency.

I think the defensive tackle position will be in need of an addition or two. Shamar Stephen could be a cap casualty next year. He is playing better than Armon Watts & Jaleel JOhnson according to PFF. Johnson is a free agent as well. James Lynch has only played 32 snaps thus far but he very promising.

At defensive end, Hunter should return and Odenigbo will be a free agent. Jalyn Holmes has been playing at defensive end this year and it just doing OK. He could be a cap casualty next year but there would be very little cap savings due to the contract that the player replacing him will receive. DJ Wonnum is starting to play more snaps and maybe he will show that he is worthy of a starting spot. Also, they have Kenny Willekes on IR and Eddie Yarbrough on the practice squad.

At linebacker, they probably should draft one or two because Eric Wilson & Ben Gedeon will be free agents and Cameron Smith is on IR. They could look to trade Barr in order to save cap space and then use some of that to extend Wilson.

Sadly, the Vikings could be looking for another cornerback in this next draft too. Mike Hughes is having a very hard time staying healthy. He will be entering the 4th year of his contract and it is highly unlikely the team picks up his 5th year option. He could be a cap casualty. Holton Hill will be a free agent as well.

I think they could draft a tight end because Rudoph’s contract is another one to consider for adjustment or termination. If not in 2021 then definitely by 2022.

They need to draft a wide receiver as well because Thielen will be 31 next August. They need a 3rd receiver that is truly talented.

Lastly, and the biggest question of all is what will they do at QB. I am not convinced that they will draft a QB early and that they will do what they have to do to absorb that 45 mil cap hit in 2022. It is hard to see him accepting an extension beyond 2022 that does not have adequate compensation and includes voidable years. Maybe he will do it but should the Vikings want to do that? Ugh.

The draft could go many ways.

I will be the first to say that most of these players will probably go earlier. A lot earlier. I also am aware of the desire of many to see the team draft a QB in round 1. I like to mix it up though.

I am not sure of the tackles will stay at tackle or move to guard. You never know now.
