On another fantastic Mock Draft Monday on the Climbing The Pocket YouTube Channel , Dave and I decided to go through the draft based on what we thought was best for this team, but we also still drafted a little bit based on how this organization would draft. Littered through this are high upside athletes and trades that benefit the Vikings this year and next. Round 1, Pick 27 (Via Baltimore): EDGE Gregory Rousseau, Miami We had the Vikings move down from 14 to 27 in exchange for 131, 207, and a second-round selection next year and the Vikings ended up selecting a player likely to go in the top 15 with Gregory Rousseau. Round 3, Pick 78: S Jevon Holland, Oregon With safety being a major need with the uncertainty at the position this year and after 2021, the Vikings take a player out of Oregon in Jevon Holland who can do a little bit of everything. Standing 6’1″ and 196 lbs, Holland can play everywhere including the slot as a nickel cornerback. Round 3, Pick 90: WR D’Wayne Eskridge, Western Michigan Every year, I fall in love with a prospect or two. Last year, it was DL Jason Strowbridge out of North Carolina, and this year it’s Western Michigan WR D’Wayne Eskridge. If he was 6’1″ instead of 5’9″, Round 4, Pick 118: DT Alim McNeill, North Carolina State While the Vikings had a top 3 offense in yardage, their defense was far from it and it started on the defensive line. Missing both Hunter and Pierce was crippling from the start. Round 4, Pick 124: DT Jaylen Twyman, Pittsburgh Why did we take 3 techniques in back to back picks only 6 selections apart? This team desperately needs the position but they also need depth along the entire line. Twyman is the best player on the board and he is another high upside pass rusher. Round 4, Pick 131: OG David Moore, Grambling State Finally we have appeased the segment of the Vikings fanbase that is desperate for an offensive lineman. David Moore has a very unique build, standing 6’1 5/8″ and 350 lbs but has an almost 7 foot wingspan. A functional athlete, Moore is a very solid pass blocker that needs to work on his leverage and over extending. If he can figure those out, this could be a steal for the Vikings. Round 4, Pick 131: EDGE Shaka Toney, Penn State This is another Andre Patterson special. Shaka Toney is an incredible athlete with traits and bend for days. Possessing an explosive first step. Toney can get around just about any offensive lineman you put in front of him. Round 4, Pick 142: G Trey Hill, Georgia Another guard to satisfy the “we desperately need OL” crowd, Trey Hill comes off the board. Fan with us!!!
