Vikings Might Top NFC North In 2017 | Ticket King

Vikings Draft
As we continue our mock draft tour, our next stop is the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings addressed their offensive line needs in free agency, and can now turn to other needs in the draft. Vikings fans thought that last season was “their year.” With a healthy quarterback, solid free agents, and a couple of key draft picks this season, they might go deep into the playoffs this year.  

Round 2: Dan Feeney/OG/Indiana- The Vikings addressed their tackle needs in free agency. They still need another guard. Feeney could start from day one.

Round 3A: Dalvin Tomlinson/DT/Alabama- Sharrif Floyd was a borderline bust and there is injury concern with Tom Johnson. One of the Vikings top priorities is defensive tackle in this draft. Tomlinson is a nice fit as a 4-3 defensive tackle.

Round 3B: JuJu Smith-Schuster/WR/USC- The Vikings need to continue to build their wide receiver unit. This is a little bit different of a package that speed demons out of USC in recent years. Smith-Schuster is tough, possession receiver and that is what he will be at the next level.

Round 4A: Brad Kaaya/QB/Miami- I have never been a fan of the Sam Bradford trade, and I do think that Brad Kaaya is the one potential gold mine in this weak quarterback class.

Round 4B:  Kareem Hunt/RB/Toledo- The Latavius Murray signing means the end of Adrian Peterson in Minnesota. Still, the Vikings need a running back out of this draft. At 5'10”, 216 pounds, Hunt is a tough between the tackles runner.

Round 5: Connor Harris/ILB/Lindenwood- The Vikings need some linebacker depth out of this draft. These late round small school kids always seem to play with an edge. Connor Harris, out of Lindenwood University in St. Louis, Missouri, seems to be a good fit in this 4-3 zone run defense.

Round 6: Jonnu Smith/TE/Florida International- The last two selections have been from small schools, so let's keep the theme going. Jonnu Smith could be a nice backup tight end of the Vikings.

Round 7: Zane Gonzalez/K/Arizona State- If Gonzalez doesn't end up in Minnesota, there is going to be a lot of experts who look really foolish.
