Vikings have already moved on from Selvie from reports.

Draft is solid, hits positions of need, but your 5th round number is off. There are at least 128 picks through round four. It's impossible for us to pick 121st in the 5th round

Personally not a fan of Waynes, McKinney, or Drummond but those are definitely positions the Vikings will likely look at.

Just want to know your reason for not liking Waynes, McKinney. I have watched tape on both of them, I just want to know why you don't like them. I think they can thrive under Zimmer's defense and the schemes he uses.

If we aren't taking Amari Cooper at 11 then we should trade back to acquire more picks.

Trae Waynes is a decent enough player, but I wouldn't touch any CB in the top 15 picks this year. Also I want either Cooper or Parker at that spot so I may be a bit biased with this pick.

I really want to like Bernardrick McKinney, but I think that if he didn't have that size he would only be a 3rd round pick at best. I think he is a better fit at OLB. He seems really stiff and he kinda comes across as big, slow, and unintelligent. To be honest thought really don't like any of the ILB prospects in this years class.

I personally wouldn't take Ali Marpet that early. Yeah he had a great combine, but he still seems a bit raw to be taken at the top of the 3rd.

I don't like Kurtis Drummond at all. He's not very good in coverage, but he's not really a great in the box guy either. I don't think he would add anything special to the current group of safeties that we have. If we sign Taylor Mays then I don't see a roster spot for a late round safety.

Nice mock!

I am pretty sure we are out on Selvie, I hate it, would of loved to bring him in. Mays would be a nice depth add, don't see him as an impact starter.

I'm a fan of everything but the first two picks. I am just not a huge fan of Waynes. Very systematical CB, he's quick but he will need a deep safety over the top. The biggest thing for him is he had enough closing speed to catch back up to the Big Ten QB's passes. He lets a lot of short passes up, but the positive side of him is he doesn't let many big plays. Struggles against screens, and runs towards his side, not a very solid tackler.

Mckinney is another one of those two down thumpers, like most of the ILB's in this draft. Almost every pass play he looks confused, constantly chasing after the guy he is covering turning his back to the QB. Zimmer has stated he wants a 3 down ILB, and really I don't know where you go for that in this draft. Personally I don't know if we are actually better off with staying with what we have in Audie Cole at MLB.

Don't care for Waynes, but I do like McKinney and Marpet. I'd rather just trade back in the first.

With Waynes I absolutely think that he's a first round prospect in this class, but there are things I don't like about him. Starting with his frame, it's hard to see him holding up over the course of a 16+ game season with how physically he plays. He played pretty much injury free in college, but had a devastating injury his senior year that forced him to red shirt as a freshmen. The next reason is the defensive system. Pat Narduzzi comes from the Nick Saban system of defense. Corners in that type system tend to be maxed out in college and haven't transitioned well to the pros. Now, that doesn't mean Waynes can't buck that trend. I noticed a little stiffness in his hips and ankles and that is reflected in his below average agility times. He has the physical traits to possibly succeed in a Zimmer system, I just don't think the value matches at pick #11

As far as McKinney goes, he certainly has the size and athleticism that Zimmer prizes, but when he plays in the middle that's all he has. He's not good at sifting through garbage and his length works against him in the middle as he got cut often. I think he's a much better fit for the bubble backer spot currently occupied by Anthony Barr. Perhaps he could play the technique backer that Chad Greenway currently plays, but I wasn't overly impressed with his take on skills; particularly given his great size. His pad level gets too high when taking on a block and he's slow to disengage. He's a little like Jasper Brinkley in the fact that, when you look at him, you expect a big hitter but he's been more a drag down guy. As a nickel guy, he would make a good A gap blitzer, but his coverage skills appear to be limited to spot zones on crossing routes (one reason he might be okay in Greenway's spot).

Just my .02

I don't think we are getting good value with Waynes at 11. For me he is a worst-case-scenario type pick where the guys I really want all get picked.

McKinney doesn't seem to have enough of the skills to be a difference maker as a second round pick.
