Is this the most interior lineman selected this early in any draft? It's shocking that so many guys who are projected to be centers or guards in the NFL have gone this early. I'm no draft historian, but this seems like an insane amount.

I almost don't want to watch anymore. This is incredibly depressing.

I'm having NFCCG flashbacks. Honestly. That feeling of helplessness.

Its likely to be a position of weakness going into this year. My hope is they get impact players at other positions, RB, TE, DT, etc.

To be a fly on the wall in the Vikings war room after those first few picks.

That CB pick is looking even worse now.

I'm also still a little butthurt he didn't draft La'El Collins in the 7th round again.

OL

Austin Corbett - GONE
Braden Smith - GONE
Scott Quessenberry

DL

Maurice Hurst
Tim Settle
Arden Key

TE

Dallas Goedert
Mike Gesicki - GONE
Going swimmingly so far :wallbang: . I have a feeling Hurst will be around. I think people are more scared about his health than people are leading on. Settle would be good depth for Linval. Quessenberry maybe in the 3rd.

Is he the one where it came out late there was bone-on-bone in his knee?

Only think better will be if they go CB at 62. Isaiah Oliver is still on the board!

I'm hoping Goedert falls at this point. Connor Williams still avail too.
