26 Apr A Revised Hammer Mock Draft for 2017!
Ladies and gentlemen we are now within a week of the 2017 NFL Draft! Now that our Vikings have signed their free agents we have a little better idea what direction this team may go on draft day. A first round pick would be nice, but them’s the breaks.
In this particular mock I might have traded down a couple times but I was using the basic Fanspeak service that doesn’t allow trades. This is a set of players I wouldn’t mind seeing in Viking uniforms this fall. Enjoy!
3rd round (79th overall) = DT Jaleel Johnson, Iowa – With Shariff Floyd and possibly Tom Johnson in doubt for this season we need a 3-tech. From what I’ve seen I like this guy.
3rd round (86th overall) = RB Kareem Hunt, Toledo – A solid running back to add to our backfield.
4th round (120th overall) = OL Nico Siragusa, San Diego State – We need two interior offensive linemen from this draft and in this mock I felt there was a bit of a drop after Siragusa.
4th round (128th overall) = DE Tanoh Kpassagnon, Villanova – Defensive end isn’t a huge need for this team but I simply couldn’t resist taking this guy while I still could. He has potential and this is exactly the coaching staff to help him reach it.
5th round (160th overall) = S John Johnson, Boston College – I haven’t seen this guy play much but he’s a safety with good size and he ran ok at the combine.
6th round (199th overall) = LB Elijah Lee, Kansas State – We need a linebacker and Zimmer seems to like this guy. Who am I to deny Zimmer what he wants?
