What a bad pick.... a small project tackle whos only highlights they shows were of him running jet sweeps , catching passes etc.... Seriously why do we need someone like this? If you are going for a tackle, why not just take the Alabama guy who did terrible at the combine, who also didnt give up a sack in his whole college career.

I repeat. He did shut down Bradley Chubb.

Why are people brushing this under the rug.

He Shut. Down. Bradley Chubb.

Is that not an impressive accolade, people?

Where is this stuff coming from? I swear what I heard Mayok say was great feet, chance to be special, needs to get stronger. I must have missed the part where they said they need to teach him how to play football.

I just think there is better O line available. Mayock also said he was too small, had to put on weight and get stronger... sounds like a project to me. Not worthy of a 2nd round pick, most "experts" had him as a 4th round pick.

He had 2 hurries and 2 tackles. He also got hurt that game. Not sure I would call it shut down.

Jamaal Stephenson, Vikings’ director of college scouting: It really was about taking the best offensive lineman available (at pick 62). Never seen this many guards go so early.

Another words sounds like Zim & Rick got burnt.

Um, maybe you should have taken a guard in round 1 then? Quit trying to be so dang clever.
