Apparently he's not made a decision yet, but he's got the talent of a first rounder.

Inconsistent and may come with the injury tag.

Not a Humphries fan, myself.

Regardless of whether or not he is a good fit for the Vikings, at least he will push other tackles down the board.

I really hope this turns out to be a nice, deep OL class; the Vikings need lots of help.

My new man crush is Shaq Thompson. How does he fit in Zimmer's defense?

Barr's spot, IMO.

Barr, by name, is a strong side backer but he lines up mostly on the weak side. Best spot for Shaq or Kendricks, IMO.

I would agree.

With what we've seen from Hodges so far this season, and how young and athletic he is, I just don't see the Vikings using an early pick on an outside linebacker. If they go linebacker, I think it will be a big, run thumping middle linebacker.

Does he project as a linebacker? I was thinking safety but with how well Hodges has played and Blanton starting to come on I guess that would be a waste of a pick. Oh well time to find a new draft crush

Back to the McKinney posts from the previous thread.

If Zimmer wants McKinney and is pounding the table as he did for Barr I'll be super excited.

That's my main struggle right now. Do we get another piece for Zimmer's D to try and make it an elite unit year in year out (I think this will eventually come along)? Or do we get Teddy some help offensively (bringing AD back would be extremely helpful). I'm truly excited to see which direction they choose because we WILL be a better football team next year, regardless.

That's the weird thing about Thompson. Most sites have him listed as an outside linebacker, and I thought that's where he played this season. But at the same time I've seen him listed anywhere for 6'1" to 6'3" and 215 to 230.

But I would say that Hodges and Blanton keep both positions from being high priorities in the draft. Sure both linebacker and safety could be upgraded, but they certainly aren't holes or liabilities.

Jalen Collins is reportedly declaring for the draft. He is my choice as a corner for this team. He'd be a great grab in the 2nd round.

If he lasts that long, I agree that he's a no brainer pick there.

Once the combine rolls around, he may price himself out of that range.

If we pass on WR early what does everyone think about Arizona WR Austin Hill in the 4th rd?
