VIKINGS DRAFT PICKS


ROUND ONE: 11th pick
Awaiting Image
Trae Waynes
Michigan State / 6'0 / 186 lbs
  • CB
  • [1] #11

Analysis

Waynes started 27 of 36 games at Michigan State, 13 at boundary corner and 14 at field corner. He recorded 101 tackles, six interceptions and 13 pass deflections. He’s this year’s top rated cornerback. Waynes has good size and surprised many running so well [4.31 forty] at the Combine. He can turn his hips and run with any wide receiver. He has good short area quickness and shows a super burst to the ball. He can play man, press, off, zone and is effective in run support. Former Spartan Darqueze Dennard was a first rounder last year (No. 24 to Cincinnati). Wayne should go much higher.

ROUND TWO: 45th pick
Awaiting Image
Eric Kendricks
UCLA / 6'0 / 228 lbs
  • MLB
  • [2] #13

Analysis

Kendricks was a defensive workhorse for the Bruins, appearing in 52 games and starting 41 times. He finished with a school record 482 tackles. He also added 10 sacks and 26 tackles for a loss. This is a linebacker that’s physical and aggressive and knows how to play behind his pads. He’s all downhill and can be an explosive talent. Kendricks can make plays in space and is solid in coverage. You have to love his motor and the way Kendricks just plays the game.

ROUND THREE: 88th pick
Awaiting Image
Danielle Hunter
LSU / 6'6 / 241 lbs
  • OLB
  • [3] #24

Analysis

Hunter played in 38 games at LSU, starting 23 times. He finished with 142 tackles, 4.5 sacks, and 21 tackles for a loss. He’s built like former Tiger and current Brown Barkevious Mingo, though he’s not quite as athletic. At 6-foot-5, 252-pounds, Hunter has a long frame with plenty of room to bulk up at add weight. He primarily played down in Baton Rouge and good very well do the same in the NFL, although Hunter looks to have more upside standing up as an outside ‘backer in a 3-4 scheme. He’s faster than quick and plays hard.

ROUND FOUR: 110th pick
Awaiting Image
T.J. Clemmings
Pittsburgh / 6'5 / 309 lbs
  • OT
  • [4] #11

Analysis

Clemmings is another draft prospect that coverted from the other side of the ball. This right tackle was a five-star defensive end recruit that signed with Pitt. He converted to the other side of the ball and is now projected as one of the top OL prospects in the draft. In fact, Clemmings has only started two seasons at right tackle at Pitt. Still, he transitioned very well. In two season he has 1,771 plays under his belt where he graded out at 85% with 157 knockdown blocks and 30 touchdown resulting blocks. Clemmings has size and length. He displays flexibility and agility. Clemmings just needs more experience and development. He has a very promising future.

ROUND FIVE: 143rd pick
Awaiting Image
MyCole Pruitt
Southern Illinois / 6'2 / 251 lbs
  • TE
  • [5] #7

Analysis

Pruitt is a small-school sleeper that was highly productive at Southern Illinois. He caught 221 passes for 2,601 yards and scored 25 touchdowns. He’s only 6-foot-2, 251-pounds yet he’s still a tough blocker and Pruitt can obviously catch the football. This is a tight end that can line up everywhere – as an H-back, in the slot or in-line next to the tackle.
