Made 8 picks (same number we started with) AND got two middle round picks for next year.

I think the Vikings did a good job getting depth and creating competition.

Initial quick reactions:

Treadwell - top-15 player and top need, A+
Alexander - top-30 player and adds great depth/verstility, A+
Beavers - fills a need and adds competition, but not a huge fan of the player, C
Brothers - great football player, should be an asset as a role player, A
Boehringer - insane potential, B+
Morgan - another solid role player and special teams guy, B+
Weatherly - fantastic potential, adds needed competition, A-
Kearse - seems like a good value and he has tools Zimmer can work with, B

adding a future 3rd + 4th was also an excellent move

Overall: A

I'm cautiously optimistic. I think we nailed day 1 & day 2. The best thing we did day 3 was add Jayron Kearse, & I'm not a fan of his tape this year, so that's a bit unnerving.

I DO think we got better with this class, but I also think we could have gotten more value (especially w/all those good players left in the 4th) than we did for certain picks.

So we did the teammate thing again. Yay.

Only pick I question is the Beavers pick, but that's mainly because I was hoping for Billings.

The rest of the draft looks very good.

I only made one mock draft this year and I got the Treadwell pick correct and i also had us taking Kearse in the fifth so I like that we got him in the 7th. Overall i think we did alright this year i would give us a B+.

Same for me, on that pick.

I'm content with the outcome of the draft. It was a weird one, a lot of guys falling that I wasn't expecting, a lot of people I never had heard of being taken higher. Should be plenty of UDFA's that could very easily have been drafted.
