Vikings: Cooper


I like that Kevin White put up such impressive numbers at the combine. I'd love it if the Raiders took him, letting Cooper fall to us. Am I right in seeing only the Raiders as teams likely to take a WR in picks 1 through 10?


Rams and Jets are a couple others.

Darren Page 7-round mock (12/31): http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2314 ... ons/page/2

1. DeVante Parker, WR, Louisville
2. Ty Sambrailo, OT, Colorado State
3. Hayes Pullard, LB, USC
4. Clayton Geathers, S, Central Florida
5. Marcus Hardison, DT, Arizona State
6. Terrence Magee, RB, LSU
7. Nick Marshall, QB, Auburn


Is this the guy that used to moderate or post on another site (cant remember the website or if its still up and running). I used to disagree with all of his pre draft selections, and I see that's still the case. We do see eye to eye on Parker though.

Are these people putting up mocks with Scherff in there cause they actually think we need a tackle that bad? Or this is BPA for use but none of the other teams before use? Or that he will make an excellent guard?

If we did pick Waynes (cb) or White (wr) with our first pick, I wouldnt jump up and down screaming and crying.

While taking a guard at 11 would seem a reach, it's a guard that has the upside to go to tackle if Kalil doesn't get it together or Loadholdt isn't the same after his injury. If we knew both our tackles would have bounce-back seasons and we were set at the position, we likely wouldn't consider Sherff.

Regarding Scherff, if the guy can be a Pro Bowl guard for a decade, I wouldn't spend more than five seconds writing his name on the card. This idea that you don't take a guard that high is crazy to me - if he's that good, take him. If not, then go elsewhere. How many of you would pass up Randall McDaniel with a #11 pick, if he was available this year.

Regarding McDaniel...from Wikipedia:
Quote:
he was timed at 4.6 seconds in the 40-yard dash

Latest NFL.com guys: Waynes (3), Cooper

Quote:
11. Minnesota Vikings: Kevin White, WR, West Virginia

The Vikings have made some moves at wide receiver, trading for Mike Wallace and releasing Greg Jennings. They shouldn’t stop there. Even though the Vikings need a cornerback, a player like White is too good to pass up with the No. 11 pick. He’s considered by some as the draft’s top wide receiver thanks to his speed and size.

11. Minnesota Vikings -- Landon Collins, S, Alabama: Reuniting Teddy Bridgewater with playmaking receiver DeVante Parker is awfully intriguing but so is adding a heat-seeking missile like Collins to pair with Harrison Smith in the secondary. Given the passing attacks in the NFC North and head coach Mike Zimmer's defensive background, Collins makes a lot of sense.

Pairing a QB with his favorite collegiate receiver probably is more of a fun idea for fans than it is any legitimate consideration for teams. This time, however, everything lines up to connect Parker with Teddy Bridgewater again. Cooper and White have caused Parker to slide a bit under the radar. That's a mistake. Parker will be an immediate impact playmaker.​

The real question might become: what do the Vikes want more, to make Bridgewater happy by giving him another receiving weapon, possibly one he knows (Parker or Cooper) or will Zimmer want DBs, a position he coached and values. After the Wallace trade, I'm thinking it's more likely that Collins or Waynes will be joining the team than Parker, Cooper or White but who knows? That's what makes the draft so much fun.

11: Trae Waynes. Mike Zimmer wants an ultra-athletic “bump-and-run” corner to pair with Xavier Rhodes on the perimeter. Waynes has impressed evaluators with his speed and explosiveness in drills; he also has solid game tape to back up his credentials as one of the top cover corners in the draft.


My guy Kevin Johnson is now going #16. Crap. Bucky has five corners going in R1.

those first three picks would be nice. doesn't do much for the left guard spot, but maybe we could grab evan mathis from the eagles for one of our 7th rounders.

Would be interesting if both Parker and White were available who they went with (assuming they didn't go with another position).

I think there is too much WR depth in this years draft to go WR with the first pick unless they really believe a guy will be an all-time great at the position.

Hasan evaluates the "expert" predictions to this point: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2415 ... -nfl-draft

Worth the read, especially the part about Waynes, which continues to give me more reason to think he's a higher risk selection than many believe.

Quote:
The Vikings head into 2015 with ill-defined needs; each underperforming position from the previous season has young backups with upside who could conceivably fill in, or players whose careers are not written in stone.

Still, general manager Rick Spielman must select someone and there are no shortage of experts willing to prognosticate. Who are the leading draft industry experts mocking to the Minnesota Vikings?

Josh Norris' latest mock: http://www.rotoworld.com/articles/cfb/5 ... mock-draft

Quote:
11. Minnesota Vikings - CB Kevin Johnson, Wake Forest - It seems like a forgone conclusion that Mike Zimmer & Co. draft a corner. (So that means they won’t ultimately draft a corner.) For now, CB is the pick and many now point to Johnson as being the top-rated prospect at the position.

2015 NFL Mock Draft: Minnesota Vikings Select Marcus Peters

http://www.dailynorseman.com/2015/4/13/ ... cus-peters

Quote:
Let me first say that there was a significant amount of talent available at this position. Players such as top end offensive line prospects such as Brandon Scherff, Andrus Peat, and Ereck Flowers, along with two of the top three available wideouts in DeVante Parker and Kevin White were still on the board. On the defensive side of the ball were the top defensive backs, Landon Collins, Marcus Peters, and Trae Waynes, along with a few of the high end linebackers such as Shane Ray and Eric Kendricks. My ideal option given this situation would be to shop the number 11 pick, trade back and add picks. I believe that given slick rick only has seven picks and there are a number of holes that could be filled a few picks later that would be what he would try to do. But in this draft we are picking as we are slotted, which is just fine as well. Given a look at the available talent I chose Cornerback Marcus Peters.

I understand that there are going to be Vikings fans who do not support my pick, and briefly let me explain why I did not select a few players.

Jeremiah's two-round mock (4/21):

Quote:
11. Minnesota: Kevin White, WR, West Virginia
Comment: This could be a cornerback, but adding another weapon for Teddy Bridgewater isn't a bad way to go


Quote:
45. Minnesota: Jalen Collins, CB, LSU
Comment: Collins has as much upside as any CB in the draft.

Benjamin Allbright's Top 100 Big Board: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... edit#gid=0

Interesting. If I was to draw up my big board, this would be close, but there are some surprises (either higher or lower than conventional thought to this point):

#10: Kevin Johnson
#11: Laken Tomlinson
#13: Cam Erving
#15: Melvin Gordon
#18: Malcom Brown
#21: AJ Cann
#22: Ameer Abdulluh
#26: Marcus Mariota
#27: Jameis Winston
#28: Trae Waynes
#30: PJ Williams
#32: Eli Harold
#38: Shane Ray
#93: Carl Davis

Edit: his horizontal board: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... =270638539

It probably still depends on whose board you're looking at. He seems to be anywhere from the #1-4 guard prospect from what I've seen.

Hasan is doing a Twitter mock. Search for the hashtag #rattymock for details. It's interesting. Lots of movement and trades. Here's what I've gathered thus far:

Summary: Traded Peterson & 5th for Cowboys 2nd & 3rd. Selected thus far: CB Byron Jones, LB Stephone Anthony, DT Grady Jarrett, RB T.J. Yeldon, QB Brett Hudley, OT Ty Sambrailo. Acquired Lions DE Devin Taylor

Quote:
@ArifHasanNFL Participating in #RattyMock where I traded Pick #11 to Browns (@SamIngro) for Picks #19, #77 and #147. They get to pick twice now.

Quote:
@ArifHasanNFL @RyanRattyNFL With pick 19 in #RattyMock, I'll select Byron Jones, CB Connecticut for the #Vikings. @eaglescentral and the #Eagles are OTC

Quote:
@ArifHasanNFL In #RattyMock, I have also traded Adrian Peterson and Pick 137 to @RyanRattyNFL and the #Cowboys for Pick 60 and 91. Come at me.

Quote:
ArifHasanNFL In #RattyMock I trade Picks #45 and #147 to #Bears (@BestHumanTalent) for Pick #39 and select Stephone Anthony, LB Clemson for the #Vikings

Quote:
@ArifHasanNFL With the 76th and 77th picks in #RattyMock I select DT Grady Jarrett and RB T.J. Yeldon for the #Vikings. #Saints (@willosgood116 OTC)

Quote:
@ArifHasanNFL .@RyanRattyNFL With Pick #88 in #RattyMock, I select Brett Hundley, QB UCLA for the #Vikings. @SamIngro is OTC wth the #Browns.


Re: Hundley pick:
Quote:
@ArifHasanNFL @RyanRattyNFL @SamIngro Hundley will make an excellent developmental backup. Vikings want one. Prefer early rather than later.

Quote:
@ArifHasanNFL .@RyanRattyNFL @SamIngro it's not about what's best for Hundley, but for the team. Shaun Hill is 35. Hundley can back up Teddy forever.

Quote:
@ArifHasanNFL @RyanRattyNFL @SamIngro yea, this selection doesn't happen without having a lot of picks. Hundley was falling, so I figured good time for it

Quote:
@ArifHasanNFL @MyersNFL @RyanRattyNFL @SamIngro I have like 6 picks or something in 3rd/4th and the board is falling pretty well for my needs

Quote:
@ArifHasanNFL @SwilderBeast I don't see high quality backup quarterbacks as luxury picks.


@ArifHasanNFL @LukeEasterling With the 110th pick in #RattyMock I select OT Ty Sambrailo for the #Vikings. @SamIngro and #Browns OTC
