10 Feb Who will the Minnesota Vikings draft in 2017?
An Early Hammer 2017 Mock Draft
I read and enjoy many of the other Minnesota Viking blogs out there. A lot of these blogs will post mock drafts that fans have done on websites like fanspeak. I think I’ll throw my hat in the ring and see what a Hammer mock draft looks like at the moment.
If the Vikings ended up with these eight players in the 2017 NFL Draft, I believe I would be ok with that. Perhaps I will do another mock draft and post it after the combine/free agency in a couple months. Here goes nothing:
2nd Round (48th overall) Garett Bolles OT, Utah – We need O-Linemen early and often
3rd Round (79th overall) Dion Dawkins OT, Temple – We need O-Linemen early and often
3rd Round (86th overall) Taylor Moton OT, Western Michigan – We need O-Linemen early and often
4th Round (119th overall) Kendell Beckwith LB, LSU – Honestly I forgot about his ACL injury a couple months ago or I wouldn’t have taken him quite this early. Oh well, it’s just a mock
4th Round (127th overall) Alvin Kamara RB, Tennessee – AP will most likely be gone and this is the first spot in the mock that didn’t feel like I was reaching for a running back
5th Round (161st overall) Channing Stribling CB, Michigan – A nice tall corner Zimmer can work with. Should provide good depth
6th Round (200th overall) Isaac Asiata G, Utah – We need O-Linemen early and often
7th Round (235th overall) Josiah Price TE, Michigan State – I think I would take “The Magician” in the 7th round whether we keep Ellison or not
