There are two versions here. This probably will be the last mock until after the first day of the draft tomorrow.

I still believe the best move would be to trade for Trent Williams. I am not sure if they will or can trade Anthony Harris but I would do it if they cannot agree on a contract extension.

I think when you look at the first draft, getting Justin Jefferson and Jaylon Johnson with the first two picks is taking care of business.

I know there are folks who think you can find a receiver later but they will come off the board fast. The Vikings are sitting in prime position to grab one of the best.

Johnson had surgery on his shoulder to repair a torn labrum that he played through after suffering the injury in September. That is toughness and he should be fine. Although, if the Vikings do not trust that issue then AJ Terrell would have been fine here too.

Delpit at 58 would be a huge steal IMHO. The dude is the best safety in this draft on my big board (I do not have one).

Madubuike is someone that may folks like and he would be a fine prospect. I like Raekwon Davis better but I am often wrong.

Getting Tyler Johnson after taking Jefferson, both of whom primarily played out of the slot last year would seem to be overkill. But Jefferson played mainly on the outside in 2017. I just think you take the best talent you can and figure it out after.

Dotson is a bit underrated and was probably overshadowed by Robert Hunt. But he is a mauler.

Troy Pride Jr is a polarizing prospect but he has all the tools and speed galore. He just needs more work finding the ball which is something he should get from Zimmer and the reason he is available in the 5th.

Stenberg is a player I have watched a little this year and he is another lineman that plays with a nasty attitude like Samia. His high school coach said this about him ...

“The best ones are always wired like him,” Waldrop said. “You’ll pick up a couple of 15-yard penalties in a bad spot, but you’re also gonna know the other side is getting dented every play, and by the end is going to submit to what’s going on right there. Every team I’ve ever been a part of, that’s what I’ve wanted. …

“For the offensive line, 71 is the standard. That’s what we try to be about.”

Bradley brings speed to the linebacker group and should be pretty good on special teams to start.

Wallace in the 6th is ridiculous and I probably would have to take him in the 4th. He is going to be a slot corner in the NFL.

The Morgan, Tuszka, Gilman, and Cleveland all will have a shot at making the team with Gilman probably having the best shot.


The second draft would work too and may be better. But it leaves Reiff as the starting left tackle. One thing is for sure though.

It’s gonna be a fun ride!
