More changes per usual. I still may "play" with it a bit more and I usually tend to a combo of how stock is now and where I think it will end up rather than one way or another. As typical, I expect a lot to change leading to the draft - no, this isn't me shlumplacking you, this is just true and has been proven to be true year after year. The combine is almost here so that should shake things up a bit more. This mock will reflect that a bit more than it has. Free agency and ish after that, time and time and time, etc.

Again, please let me know if there are mistakes. Any and all constructive criticism is encouraged.

1. Kansas City Chiefs - Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M
2. Jacksonville Jaguars - Barkevious Mingo, LEO, LSU
3. Oakland Raiders - Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah
4. Philadelphia Eagles - Dion Jordan, OLB, Oregon
5. Detroit Lions - Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State
6. Cleveland Browns - Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M
7. Arizona Cardinals - Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan
8. Buffalo Bills - Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia
9. New York Jets - Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia
10. Tennessee Titans- Shariff Floyd, DT, Florida
11. San Diego Chargers - Cordarelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee
12. Miami Dolphins - Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama
13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama
14. Carolina Panthers - Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri
15. New Orleans Saints - Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas
16. St. Louis Rams - Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma
17. Pittsburgh Steelers - John Jenkins, NT, Georgia
18. Dallas Cowboys - Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU
19. New York Giants - Arthur Brown, MLB, Kansas State
20. Chicago Bears - Jonathan Cooper, Interior Offensive Lineman, North Carolina
21. Cincinnati Bengals - Eddie Lazy, RB, Alabama
22. St. Louis Rams - Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor
23. Minnesota Vikings - Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia
24. Indianapolis Colts - Travis Frederick, Interior Offensive Lineman, Wisconsin

For the Vikings:

WR is a need, but Austin is a terrible pick. With Harvin on the roster, Austin obviously doesn't make any sense at all due to overlapping skillsets, and even with Harvin traded, the Vikings still have Jarius Wright at slot reciever.

What the Vikings need is a big(ger) WR that can 1) play on the outside and 2) get open and make plays down field and in the red zone. More than anything, Minnesota needs a WR that will keep defenders away from the line of scrimmage and away from Adrian Peterson. Austin, a pass catching RB basically, does not do that for us.

At WR, Keenan Allen and DeAndre Hopkins make so much more sense.

If not WR, then Short, Minter, Hankins, Rhodes, Banks, and especially Ogletree* make more sense.


*Seriously, Ogletree would be an easy pick here.

Edit:

And just a few hours after writing this, Ogletree gets arrested for DUI, likely taking him off of the Vikings' draft board.

In that case, I'd say DeAndre Hopkins would be the pick, he's my favorite WR prospect and it sounds like Keenan Allen isn't impressing in Combine workouts.

Not a good Vikings pick, my friend. Even if Harvin is dealt, the Vikes have Jarius Wright to play the slot and would still have a glaring hole on the outside if they took Austin. Keenan Allen or Alec Ogletree should be the pick.

Let me be the third Viking fan to mock this pick, but Austin is simply not a good fit, regardless of Harvin's situation. I would much rather have DeAndre Hopkins, Quinton Patton or Terrance Williams in round one over Austin at WR.

My choice would be Alec Ogletree however, He would be a perfect WLB/nickel MLB in the Vikes scheme. (edit: scratch this idea with the DUI)

Would much rather have Ansash than Okafer for the Falcons.

Ansash upside is way more than okafer's and Ansah can actually play a more versatile position of 4-3 DE and 3-4 olb in Nolans Hybrid 4-3 / 3-4 scheme making him much more valuable to us.

Ansah is a 5T in a 3-4. Okafor is an OLB in a 3-4.

I don't think we could pass on Banks. Grigson drafts by his board, and I'll bet Banks is higher than Travis.
