    If the top guards go before the top tackles this draft, I’m wondering what tackles will be there at 30?

    I think the Patriots will take a tackle with their first pick at 23. I’m not convinced we are going OL at 30. I think it is at least as likely that we will take a CB first.

    I'd rather see us go after at RT and let Isadora (who I thought showed promise) and Remmers battle it out for RG.

    All things being equal, I'd prefer for the Vikings to draft a RT. Remmers and Hill were OK at RT, but Remmers is probably a better fit at RG and I like Hill more as a swing tackle than as a starter. That being said, there are some really good guard prospects in Price, Hernandez, and Wynn who should be available around our pick, so any early investment in the line would be greatly appreciated. The line did make some big strides last year, but they are not where they need to be yet and Cousins doesn't have Keenum's mobility, so there is less margin for error, unless Cousins can slow down the pass rush with the threat of the deep ball.

    I'm in RT camp as well...OTOH, if there is a future Randall McDaniel out there, none of us will be thumbing our noses at him. Just not sure if or who that would be, including this kid from UTEP.

    Hernandez seems like an ill fit for what we want to do. I agree with those who say Remmers/Isadora competing at RG with a D1/Hill competition at RT gives us more buck bang...especially long term.

    Hill is not a starting Right Tackle. Serviceable backup, yes but not a starter IMO. Hernandez will be gone unless we trade up to get him. Casserly's  latest mock has Connor Williams falling to us at 30 which would be amazing, but I don't think that happens. He has Kolton Miller going to the Patriots at 23 after losing Soldier to the Giants. I would flip those picks around as Miller is nowhere near a finished product. Talented, but still very raw and seems to be rising strictly on his combine numbers and potential. McGlinchey, Hernandez, Miller, Price are all gone before 30 in his latest mock. Curiously, he left the one guy off of his First Round mock that I would probably take over Williams and that is Isaiah Wynn.

    Ideally, Hill remains experienced depth at both tackle positions. He may be among the league's best backup swing tackles.

    He may not be a top half starter. Yet. But let's be fair. He's a CUSA player, and 2017 was his 2nd season in the NFL. If you put him on a Stringer or Loadholt learning curve, he compares pretty well. It's not out of the question for him to have a Ryan Schraeder like progression. Schraeder, easily one of the best RTs in the game, was undrafted, started 14 games in 2 years, then was PFF all pro in his 3rd. 

    Still, it's not something we can expect. So I draft the RT. Better value, higher impact. And I tend to think that Remmers, with a full summer at guard, can be pretty good there. He's got super short arms and doesn't really belong at tackle.

    Our need at CB may be greater than our need at OL. And the drop off in the CB talent (after the 30th pick) may be greater than the drop off in OL talent.

    I am not against drafting an OL in the first - though I would prefer an OT to an OG. But if the 2 best players available when the Vikings pick are an OL and a CB, I would prefer the CB.

    Would a CB at pick 30 beat out Mack Alexander in the slot? Maybe, but I doubt it. This is Mack's 3rd season and that's pretty much what it takes a CB to "get it" in Zimmer's defense. Might be a year or two before we see contribution from a rookie CB, whereas we should get a nice boost from a RT who can bump Remmers inside. 

    What's more, with three 1st rounders and a 2nd rounder in the secondary (and the contracts that come with it), a lower cost veteran (maybe after June 1st) just seems to fit the cap puzzle better.

    I would hope they put him right where he has been over his collegiate career.

    Moving him is a gamble and a guess.  Like what they did with Fusco.

    What percent of college RT and RG end up in the pros vs what % of college LT and LG end up playing on the opposite side in the pro game?  I dont know either,  but I have to think that teams tend to put their better players on the QBs blind side that the better college linemen played over there as a whole, but at the next level many end up getting moved to the other side as they are not nearly as dominant in a much better talent pool.  I agree that he would likely play sooner at LG,   but will he fit in our scheme as a LG,  or even at all?
    Why isnt Chuck Foreman in the hall of fame?

    I think Mike Hughes would be an immediate upgrade. A couple of weeks ago, he would've been available at 30. Now, I don't think so. The Vikings obviously like him a lot or they wouldn't have brought him in today with the top 30. He was projected late in the first/early second. Casserly has him at 16 to the Puckers with his latest mock. I don't disagree on the depth of OLine talent. There are not as many blue chip guys, but there is solid starter potential in the 2nd and 3rd rounds so passing on one of the fringe 1st round OLine prospects like Kolton Miller for someone like Hughes or Reid at 30 would be a solid strategy, especially if we could grab someone like Cappa. To be honest, I don't know what the potential is for the two lineman we signed as FA's and if either of them could be plugged in and start at RG.

    Maybe, but I think teams bring players in more when they have questions or need clarification on something, not necessarily because they're targeting them. 

    This time two years ago, Mack Alexander was considered by most to be a 1st round pick. For me it's less about Hughes than it is about the time it takes for corners to break in with Zimmer. 

    I would agree with you, tho, that the value seems to drop quicker at corner than it does at OL.

    I'm not really thrilled about the idea of spending another high pick on a corner. I get that Waynes and Alexander's contracts are up soon, that Newman is nearly at the end of his career, that corners take at least a year to adapt to Zimmer's scheme, and that coverage is a big part of the D. I just feel like Zimmer should be able to develop some mid to late round corners and leave the higher picks for OL, S, or TE. Even grabbing another linebacker would be prudent, since longterm decisions on Barr and Kendricks will need to be made soon.

    I don't know about any percentages.  All I know is the dude played all 49 games at left guard and played well.

    I am of the opinion that they should leave him there.

    I do not know if he fits the scheme and I would not pretend to know what the scheme is to be honest.

    It seems they like athletic linemen a bit.

    It is interesting that the Vikings have not even met with Hernandez yet.  I could not find any news.  I could not even find any news of them going to the UTEP pro day.

    Yet, the mock drafts are driving the supposed interest.

    Perhaps the linemen they have met with are the ones they truly are interested like Price, Ragnow, Quessenberry, McGlinchey, Williams, Cappa, and Matthew Gono.

    It would be funny if they only drafted Alex Cappa and Matthew Gono.

    Has Zimmer done that? I really have no idea. It took Waynes, a high first rounder, at least a year to not be a liability at CB. And longer still to become a good corner. We are picking 30 this time. The Vikings' stable of CBs is pretty empty. I would hate to rely on Sherels.

    CB seems like a position where if you are not really good, you are going to get killed by the likes of Rodgers, Stafford, Brees, Ryan,Wentz/Foles, Goff, ... Our OL situation is not anyehere near yhat precarious.  I just do not see the Vikings going OL with the first pick.

    It's a fair question, it seems like most of Zimmer's corners in Cincy were high draft picks. There were some reclamation projects like Pacman Jones, but he was still a top 10 pick. Is it just a case that teams are able to find zone corners later in the draft, but the players with the skills for man coverage are naturally drafted early.

    We had a long time where the Vikings would seemingly never invest high picks in the secondary, which was a period when they were running Tampa 2 zone coverage, but now it seems like every other year they are spending a top pick on a corner. It's fine as long as it works, though both Waynes and Alexander have had significant growing pains, but considering our need right now is a 4th corner who could eventually step up to a bigger role in a year or two, I'd just like to prioritize some other parts of the roster first and circle back to corner in the 3rd-5th rounds. Then maybe grab another corner late in the draft.

    The OL was better last year, but they still have a lot of room for improvement. The big thing for them is to not get complacent and keep trying to upgrade the talent there. You could make the same argument at CB, but I'd still like to hit some other needs in the 1st and 2nd rounds, though maybe they can't reliably find man corners after that point.

  • dadevikedadevike Posts: 776Karl
    Umless I am mistaken, we lost two OL this offseason (Sirles and Berger) and we signed two (Andrews and Compton). Frankly, I don't know if we are better, worse, or the same after that swap. Even if that swap was even, we are probably better at OL now just due to the expected development from Hill, Isidora, and Collins.  

    But assuming Newman retires and with Brock gone, what do we have besides Rhodes and Waynes? To be fair, I assume that Mac continues to develop. But who comes in when teams go 4 wide? Sherels? Tocho? A 5th round rookie? Maybe the plan is to sign a veteran FA CB after the draft? I know we were interested in Callahan, but Chicago will simply match any contract we sign him to. Who is left and how much will it cost?

    Our roster is such that we do not have a desperate need at any position, so we have lots of flexibility. I won't hate an OL pick in the first, but I think it will depend on what the expected drop off will be in the second at these positions. I think the number of people who can play man coverage is pretty small and they are in big demand. 
  • prairieghostprairieghost Posts: 732Karl

    I don't know about you guys, but I sure don't want to see Trevor Siemian anywhere but on the sidelines holding a clipboard this season. I'd say in light of the 84 million dollar investment that was just made, it would seem prudent to select an OL with the first pick to protect said investment.

    Just ask the Packers how bad it sucks to start a backup for the bulk of the season...

    If guard is the best player on the board, I'm on board. But if it's tackle, I go tackle. I guess that means I just agree with what Zimmer said about this. Remmers versatility (if you can call it that) gives us that flexibility. My only caveat is that I tend to think Remmers could be a pretty damn good guard. Not sure he'll ever be a damn good tackle.

    I'm even OK with a center if it comes to that (Ragnow, Daniels, Price). As good as Elflein was on the pivot, I think he can be an even better guard. My problem with Hernandez is that he may not have the athleticism Flip needs to run this "moving" offense.

    I think the Vikings will be looking at other positions than OG for their #1, but he helped himself immensely at the combine.  His 5.15 40 was as shocking as Vea's and Payne's.  Everybody had him down for a 5.4+, and he blew those estimates out the door.  Some had him cracking a 5.1.

    This guy is not a turtle.  He can move.  He may not have been a pulling guard in college, but if the Vikings were to draft him, I see him as an instant starter, they have nobody on the roster that could beat him out.

    I would be careful moving Elflein. He plays with good leverage but he will need to get stronger to anchor well enough. They hid the issue a bit last year by giving him guard help or pulling him. 

    In this years draft class the talent at OT drops off quick but you'll find day one starters at OG/C all the way through the top of the 3rd. Remember, even when O-line was a massive need last off-season they waited until the 3rd to grab Elflein. I could see them passing on O-line in the first if McGlinchey, Williams and Wynn are off the board. The drop-off between Hernandez and Ragnow/Corbett/Smith isn't all that large.

  • TyrTyr Posts: 226Thrall
    @Geoff Nichols, do you think the Vikings need to spend an early pick to get a good man corner or could they develop an insurance plan for Waynes or Alexander with a 3rd-5th round pick? Also, is there any chance they go after a DE or S in the 1st round? I feel like we need another pass rusher in the mix, though maybe that is more of an interior than edge rusher. Also, would Ronnie Harrison be a good safety to pair with Harrison Smith?

    We finally had some success along the OL last season and we need to keep the continuity IMO.  Remmers played RT well all season despite early panic on this board.  Then when he was moved to Guard with berger at center and Hill at RT we did not play well at all...so we saw the result of a shuffle.  So why would we want to move Elflein from Center and Remmers from RT?

    I do not want to move any of those two when they both played well.  We need a replacement for Berger at Guard ... a day one starter.
