3 very good WR's with a 4th that's better than a 4th. Cook running out of 3 WR sets. Yes please.

I hope Rick trades down about 10 times and Vikings have 20 picks in the 7th round. Load up on kickers and punters.

Cut Ham and add another WR, somewhere in the draft.

No more fullbacks.

And tackles from small schools that we'll convert to G.

We really don’t need a WR..

ISM will get better and he is fast as f..

We don’t need running backs..

Shipping Cook off for a third rounder still leaves us with decent talent..

Defensively.. we need to rebuild the interior line, which was a sieve, and cornerback is definitely a need, because what we have is hot garbage, unless it’s all on scheme and coaching..

Kendrick’s could use a really good LB to free him up a bit.

HS needs to be gone, so a safety is a possibility..

But, FFS get some offensive line anchors inside, not these fn rag dolls that get pushed straight back, or tossed aside like body pillows during a panty raid..

We don't need a WR, anymore than the Vikings the year before Moss, or Cincy before Chase.

I would strongly consider 1st round WR considering Theilen's age, and JJ could want out like Digg's.

But 1st round CB probably makes more sense, depends what is there.

Fuq Thielen and his contract..

Roll with Jefferson, ISM, KJ, and get a decent #4/3 in the later rounds..

You know god damn well cousins won’t throw to a rookie unless he has to..

We have way more important needs than a WR who can’t break the starting lineup..

Resign Conklin to give you an outstanding TE duo next year ...

Draft a blocking TE FB type later in the draft. Roll.

Consensus of 10 Big Boards (by ADP)
1.6 Kayvon Thibodeaux DE Oregon
4.2 Aidan Hutchinson DE Michigan
4.9 Evan Neal OT Alabama
5.3 Derek Stingley, Jr. CB LSU
6.8 George Karlaftis DE Purdue
7.3 Kyle Hamilton FS Notre Dame
12.9 Garrett Wilson WR Ohio St.
14.0 Tyler Linderbaum OC Iowa
16.4 Drake London WR USC
17.1 Chris Olave WR Ohio St.
18.4 Jordan Davis DT Georgia
20.8 Ahmad Gardner CB Cincinnati
21.1 Charles Cross OT Miss. St.

21.1 DeMarvin Leal DT Texas A&M
23.0 Ikem Ekwonu OT NC State
23.4 David Ojabo DE Michigan

The first 6 will likely be gone.
I don't see us taking a WR after the development of Osborn and ISM, plus the depth of WR in this draft.
So, that means, if we stay at #12, we'll probably end up with one of the guys in purple.

We do NOT NEED a first round WR..

We have guys open all over the field..

We need a quarterback willing to risk a throw past the sticks or see past his first read..

JJ, Thielen ( if he stays), KJ, ISM Irv, conk…
FFS we have an embarrassing amount of talent at Wr and/ or TE..

Cousins doesn’t need targets, he needs cajones…and wide angle lenses in his contacts..

Getting some Thicc boys on the OL that don’t look like squeak toys to a pit bull in pass blocking would help a lot..

Anything but Oline, DL or DB/S in the first 5 rounds is a waste of picks..

Since it seems Barr might be packing it in…

An agile tackling LB might be nice..

No. 99 on Georgia is the guy I'd pick (Jordan Davis). That's a beast right there.

I'd also be okay with Kenny Pickett from Pitt.

Andrew Booth from Clemson.

Ikem Ekwonu from NC State

As I see it, we still need 1-2 offensive linemen, one quarterback, one DT, one corner and a linebacker.

Our defense was abysmal this season. No. 30 in rush defense. Davis would go a long ways towards solving that problem. The rest of the worst run defenses in the league are all picking behind us (Steelers, Chiefs, Packers, Chargers and Cardinals).

Linderbaum is only 290 pounds. We need some large, angry guys in the interior. I still want to see what we have with Davis. Our future starting rg might be sitting at the end of Zim's rookie bench.

I'm with you on Pickett. He impressed me a couple times when I saw him play this season.

Could the Vikings trade Theilen for a 1st rounder, and strike gold again, like they did with Jefferson ? (Either with the 12th pick, or the pick acquired)

Is there a Charlie Joiner Jr., Wes Chandler Jr., or James Lofton Jr. available in this draft ?

No.

No team is going to trade anything near a 1st round pick for a 32 year-old WR coming off an injury and 3 years left of a 4 year 64M contract.

If a top QB falls, take him.

If not, draft defensive BPA outside of MLB. Prefer the O and D get closer to being balanced. Plus, on O our needs are really just C and G. As mentioned, give Davis a shot at G and maybe sign a C.

D needs are all over the place, hence BPA.

Jordan Davis looks the part. But is he a two-down player? Plus, how much did he benefit from the surrounding talent on D like the other highly rated DT he played next to? Not a showstopper, but worth evaluating.

Good year to get a CB in most areas of the 1st round.

As it relates to defense, it's APA. As in any player available.

I think the real question is, how much did the other guys benefit from him being on the field. That kid is a monster. I'm fine with a two-down defensive tackle.
