3 or 4? Let me tell you right now, you're going to be disappointed if that's your expectation. Only 4 were taken in the first 50 picks! :lol:

I think two is realistic, maybe another depending on the round but it's abundantly clear the talent is not there this year.

This is a high risk, high reward pick. The kid is clearly very talented.

I am excited to see him play and hoping he can transition well to MN and leave some of his past behind him.

This is a great pick up and i rarely like RPs moves. The 4th ounder is exactly what teams have given up to move up 7 spots in the 2nd. Google Chi trade up last year. They gave up a 4th. Perfect value.

There are plebt of 3rd roubd caliber OL in this draft. The lack of talent was in the first two rounds but there are plent 3rd roubd guys that can be a quality starter.

Looks like it, up to 70. Rick has a nervous trigger finger.
