DT is definitely a glaring need if Floyd can't come back. Probably the biggest need.


100%

Yeah the team still needs a RG but our defense is like night and day when our front four gets consistent pressure. Especially in our division, can't let Rodgers and Stafford have all day to throw the ball.

DT/UT moves to 1st/2md need for Vikings


Between LB, RB, and UT I thought it was basically a #2 need before this.

Either way reaching for a player will get us in trouble during the draft. I'd be very upset if we took a DT on someone that doesn't deserve number #48.

If Floyd is done for, how does that play out as far as cutting him? What does it do to our salary cap number?

He's playing on the 5th year option of his 1st round rookie contract, which the Vikings exercised last year. That salary is now fully guaranteed, so the Vikings couldn't get any salary cap relief, no matter what happens with him this year.

I think DT has always been a position of need for this draft, but not before getting 2 O-line; however, if Floyd just can't go, then definitely use the first pick in Rd 3 to get the best guy out there.

I'd be fine with Elijah Qualls from Washington . . . watched that guy blow up WSU this year in the Apple Cup.

Two others in that 3rd Rd area I'd be happy if the Vikes went there are Vincent Taylor or Carlos Watkins.

My dark horse would be spending a 5th Rd pick on Ledbetter . . . he's a little light, but strong and quick.

There aren't really any OL I'm particularly interested in for round two, no one stands out honestly. I wouldn't mind grabbing a DT in round two and seeing what OG is available in round three.

Poor draft for OL.

DT, particularly UT is my preferred position for them to draft in round 2 and then I hope Nico Siragusa is there in the 3rd

Poor draft is right.

Dorian Johnson
Dan Feeney
Taylor Moton
Dion Dawkins

About the only ones I would be interested in in round 2. Most likely none of which will be available.

I actually expect probably 3 out of those 4 to still be available for the Vikings (I actually wouldn't be surprised to see all of them available). It's not like they're picking at the bottom of the 2nd round.

Amazing crystal ball today? lol.

We have no idea who's going to be there in the 2nd, or any round for that matter. I expect Lamp to be gone in Rd 1. Dawkins may well slide up to be the 2nd OG taken . . . but then Feeney might just make it to 48 --- oh, and I'll be hot if he goes at 46 or 47 . . . winning the coin flip, hmppphhhhh Laughing

At best I see only 1 available. Even in poor Offensive Line classes you tend to see 6 offensive lineman taken around that 48 spot. At best we may see 2 of them available. Hard to imagine only Ramczyk, Bolles, Lamp, and Robinson go ahead of us. Poor offensive line glass, but with how fast the class falls off after these guys is a pretty wide margin. If I was guessing we may have a little luck getting Dawkins or Johnson. I wouldn't put my money on it tho.

So Malik McDowell to replace Floyd is a nice option?

I think McDowell is this draft's Kevin Williams. He'll be awfully high on some boards, so if he makes it past the 1st Rd, I'd be surprised . . . I do like the measurables though.

Miami Dolphins released former 3rd overall pick Dion Jordan. He's pretty similar to Danielle Hunter in terms of measurable and athleticism.

He's also a drug addict and performed terribly while on the field. No thanks.
