I agree, we need an OT with one of them (assuming one of the top 6 are available). But we can’t double down with the holes we have. The other pick must be a CB and we can get a WR in round 2. This draft has a ton of day 2 guard talent
I would take Ruggs if he were there at 22 but I doubt it. And I’d take McKinney if he were there next pick. I realize your secondary was just thinned out by free agency but you’d sure up the second level with this kid from Bama. Smith and McKinney would be great back there
I don’t think there is a guard at 22 or 25 worth taking. If there’s a tackle there go for it, get a guard in the second or third round. If their first 3 picks aren’t CB, OL, DT, or Wr I’m going to be upset
Brady and Rogers are not as good as most think. Give any QB 6 seconds and he can find a break in coverage. They just have amazing protection.
Can't build a winner without a solid foundation - OL!
I prefer 2 players on the O side (my preference OL and WR). If Vikes go 1 D and 1 O (preferably the O on OL) I could live with it. Zimmer is a great D mind so why do we need to sink so much equity in D? Give me O blue chips and allow Zimmer to do his thing with coachable and under performing but fixable talent on D.
They'll find a way to screw it up. Got no faith in speilman or zimmer to draft what we need.
OL is the biggest problem we had for years.... when you invest that much money on QB, you need to protect. OL is must this year specially with all these picks
I dont pretend to be a draft expert, but from I've read about depth of draft I think it makes sense to grab an OT and CB in first round and then maybe trade up in 2nd and tgrab WR. As long as there is an OT worth a 1st round grade. All depends on how draft falls ahead of 22nd pick.
Makes sense...Cousins doesn’t extend plays, the only choice is to protect him. The problem is good defenses know Cousins can’t move and it fires them up to get sacks against a helpless QB.
Receivers are a complimentary especially when you have a stud like Adam
Corners all get beat if you cant pressure the QB
THERE GREAT DOMINATING TEAMS ARE BUILT ACROSS BOTH LINES
Why aren't I a highly paid GM ???
CB - AJ Terrell , then any top OL available
2nd round we can still get a great WR. I personally like Chase Claypool or Brandon Aiyuk whom both I think will be available in round 2
Round 3 should be another CB and a DE
The rest should all be for depth and maybe we find another hidden gem in those later rounds.
I think the Vikings should grab CB and Edge or OL with the first round picks. They should go after Chase Claypool wr from Notre Dame in the 2nd round. You heard it here, who ever grabs this kid in the 2nd round is going to make out huge. He is a big dude that will come down with everything. The games I saw this past season, he was a beast. Cousins would love him.
OL, CB, WR, CB, OL in that order for the first three rounds.
CB is a HUGE need, and OL has depth but still needs better starters.
Alex Szulczewski Ben Cody 100% agree with this take...Cousins is a franchise QB when he has time to throw...when he's gotta throw on the run it gets real dicey. Plus you solidify the running game even more. Worry about CB WR in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.
That would be a great move if they are going to stay the course with Cousins. They should be able to find a receiver in rnd 2. Then get a corner in the 3rd.
Any1 not seeing what MFlorio is saying is in serious denial. If Kirty Cous doesn't have protect of some type, then any play result beyond what was 1st called is going to crash & burn. If MN doesn't take two bohemoth OL w/those 2 1st round picks. It'll be more of the ssme.
All y’all crazy with any edge rushers, and doubling down on anything other than CB. Look at our CB depth chart.
ONE CB AND ONE OL IN ROUND ONE NOTHING ELSE.. unless Lamb, Jeudy, or Tua fall to us of course. 😊
Our biggest needs are OT, OG, CB, WR, DE, CB, OG. They need to get at least one more decent veteran free agent CB or through a trade get OT Trent Williams, by maybe giving up one of our 3rd round picks and maybe one 6th or 7th round pick. Even if we do both of those moves through free agency, our 1st 5 draft picks need to be, in no particular order, OT, CB, WR, OG, DE.
I had some kind of vision about this last night. It was like some spirit came down and said, "THE VIKINGS SHOULD INVEST IN O-LINE. THEY ARE GOING TO SUCK THIS YEAR ANYWAY." Obviously, I have been drinking ever since.
There won’t be two quality lineman at the end of round one. Most I could see is one of the two. CB and WR have to be a priority too.
Vikes will win 6 games max. Too bad they can’t win only one or two and get Trevor Lawrence next year!
It would be really nice to improve 13 spaces and just have the 15th best line in the league for our quarterback to play behind instead of the 28th!!
Think about that statement the next time someone complains about Cousins
The O Line is the straw that stirs the drink!! Doesn’t do any good to have some of the best running backs and wide receivers in the league, if the QB doesn’t have the protection to throw the ball and the backs can’t get pass the D Line!
They should try to trade diggs and Rhodes and try to get more picks. I love Joseph too, but see what you could get for him too.
