Vikings’ Mock Draft Roundup 3.0

Mock draft season is upon us which suggests our mock draft roundup is back!

What we do weekly is track the mainstream outlets mock drafts and aggregate the number of times a gamer gets picked. Last season, we tallied up 173 mock drafts and just 10 of them were on offense. This season might wind up being much of the exact same.

We will track them and attempt to figure out patterns and patterns, together with offering my own analysis on how they might fit with the Minnesota Vikings

Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

LSU WR Kayshon Boutte

Stephen Lew-U.S.A. TODAY Sports

Tyler’s Scouting Report

Who:

Vikings Wire’s Tyler Forness
Cowboys Wire’s Tim Lettiero

The last video game for the Vikings showed that they truly require a 2nd pass receiver reverse of Justin Jefferson. The LSU connection rules supreme here as they return to the bayou for Boutte who can do a bit of whatever and masters area.

Penn State CB Joey Porter Jr.

Joey Porter Jr. Hes Dr 102222 Whiteout

Tyler’s hunting report

Who:

SI’s NFL Draft Bible
Sporting News’ Vinnie Iyer

This cornerback class is showing to be truly deep and the addition of Porter Jr. in mock drafts for the Vikings is based upon their bad secondary play. If the Vikings wind up going to a guy heavy plan, Porter Jr. would be a best fit as he grows in press protection.

Alabama DB Brian Branch

Gary Cosby Jr.-U.S.A. TODAY Sports

Who:

CBS Sports’ Ryan Wilson
The 33rd Team’s Scouting Department
For The Win’s Christian D’Andrea

The Vikings took Lewis Cine in the preliminary in 2015, so investing into a non-premium position with 2 first-round choices in a row doesn’t make a lots of sense. The gamer is one who Nick Saban trusts to do a bit of every thing and he can play in the slot. The gamer would be an excellent contribute to the Vikings defense, however his choice is exceptionally not likely.

North Dakota State OL Cody Mauch

Who:

Pro Football Network’s Ian Cummings

The offending line had it’s problems this season, however is it worth preparing an interior lineman prior to day 3? Cummings believes it’s worth it. Mauch is a left take on that is a mauler in the running video game and his toothless smile makes him even more challenging.

Maryland CB Donte Banks

Tommy Gilligan-U.S.A. TODAY Sports

Who:

The Athletic’s Dane Brugler

Banks is a skilled gamer that hasn’t gotten a great deal of buzz however when Brugler puts somebody in a preliminary mock, you require to focus. Banks has the physicality and ball abilities to contend on the outdoors at a high level.

Ohio State WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba

2022-08-23-jaxon-smith-njigba

Tyler’s hunting report

Who:

Draft Wire’s Luke Easterling
CBS Sports’ Josh Edwards
Draft Wire’s Natalie Miller

Wide receiver continues to be a popular choice for the Vikings and it’s simple to see why. Smith-Njigba is a skilled gamer that focuses on getting open in the middle of the field with his amazing path running savvy. Speed and athleticism isn’t his strength and might prevent his draft stock.

Clemson EDGE Myles Murphy

Matt Cashore-U.S.A. TODAY Sports

Who:

CBS Sports’ Chris Trapasso

By the time draft day occurs, I don’t see Murphy being readily available previous choice 10 not to mentioned select 23. A freaky professional athlete, some have actually compared him in 2015’s very first total choice Travon Walker, other than Murphy has more production. Testing will be substantial for Murphy as he must explode at the integrate.

Illinois CB Devon Witherspoon

Matt Krohn-U.S.A. TODAY Sports

Tyler’s hunting report

Who:

Draft Wire’s Luke Easterling

Witherspoon isn’t rather a secret any longer. Some experts have actually had genuine discussions about him being the very best cornerback in the 2023 draft class. The physical nature of Witherspoon coupled with his athleticism and ball abilities make him an extremely appealing gamer for practically any plan.

Florida QB Anthony Richardson

Kim Klement-U.S.A. TODAY Sports

Who:

Bears Wire’s Jarrett Bailey

This one would be extremely amazing for Vikings fans, as they haven’t prepared an extremely toolsy quarterback given that Daunte Culpepper in 1999. Richardson has tools that resemble that of Josh Allen however requires some nurturing to establish them.

Utah CB Clark Phillips III

Rob Gray-U.S.A. TODAY Sports

Tyler’s Scouting Report

Who:

Touchdown Wire’s Doug Farrar

Phillips III is a smaller sized cornerback that plays larger than his stature and is a physical hazard. He enters the receiver’s faces and has the ball abilities to match that physicality. With his size comes adaptability, as Phillips III can play anywhere you line him up on the back end.

Miami FL CB Tyrique Stevenson

Brett Davis-U.S.A. TODAY Sports

Who:

NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah

This was the greatest surprise on the mock draft roundup, as Stevenson hadn’t appeared on a single mock draft prior to now. However, when Jeremiah does it, you need to take notification. Stevenson has the size and ball abilities that you desire in a cornerback.

Clemson DT Bryan Bresee

Jasen Vinlove-U.S.A. TODAY Sports

Who:

Pro Football Network’s Joe Broback

Like his colleague Murphy, Bresee is somebody that I don’t anticipate to fall out of the leading 10-15. He is an elite gamer on the interior that can control in both the running video game and hurrying the passer. Teams with a 4-3 love a gamer like this due to the fact that he can make an enormous distinction.

Kansas State EDGE Felix Anudike-Uzomah

Jerome Miron-U.S.A. TODAY Sports

Who:

CBS Sports’ Kyle Stackpole

If the Vikings select to proceed from Za’Darius Smith. preparing an edge rush early might be a feasible relocation. Anudike-Uzomah is an extremely athletic rush who understands how to navigate the edge and most likely is finest in a 3-4.

Clemson POUND Trenton Simpson

Clemson Tigers Football Vs North Carolina Tar Heels Acc Championship Charlotte Nc

Who:

Raiders Wire’s Marcus Mosher

Linebacker is something that the Vikings do require to update however I do question whether it will remain in the preliminary or not. If they do, Simpson is an athletic gamer that can do all of it on the 2nd level.

South Carolina CB Cam Smith

Jeff Blake-U.S.A. TODAY Sports

Who:

The Draft Network’s Damian Parson

This is the 2nd time that Smith has actually been buffooned to the Vikings and the fit makes good sense. He has a component of swagger and aggressiveness that the Vikings might utilize in their cornerback space.
