Tonight join us for the a live mock draft. Climbing The Pocket, a Daily Norseman partner, will run a live mock drafts every Monday night. This is an exercise where we see how the boards fall and who is traditionally there to be available to the Vikings. There are plenty holes and options to fill them. Who do you like? Jump in the conversion and let us know!
Round One, Pick 24: CB Greg Newsome II, Northwestern
A big-bodied corner with great ball skills, Newsome II played well against the best the Big Ten had to offer. I believe Zimmer will fall in love with his game and wouldn’t be surprised to see the Vikings make a run at him.
Round Two, Pick 55: iDL Jay Tufele, USC
A hyper athlete, Tufele would come in and fill the role the Vikings have been trying to fill since Sharrif Floyd. He could step in day one and be a big-time addition.
Round 3, Pick 70: EDGE Carlos Basham Jr, Wake Forest
Needing bodies desperately on the defensive line, the Vikings turn to Carlos Basham Jr. A big body who plays well on the edge, Basham Jr has enough quick twitch to win on the edge and on the inside as well.
Round 3, Pick 90: S Hamsah Nasirildeen, Florida State
A true hybrid player, Nasirildeen brings a versatility element that the Vikings have lacked on the back end. Mike Zimmer will have a lot of fun using him as a true chess piece.
Round 4, Pick 119: OT D’Ante Smith
A true “my guy” for Tyler, Smith is a high upside athlete who is also a good offensive lineman. When you take a developmental guy in round 4, it’s almost necessary to be versatile. Smith can play both tackle and guard spots while learning on the fly.
Round 4, Pick 134: OT Walker Little, Stanford
The former 5 star tackle hasn’t played football since 2018 due to a torn ACL in 2019 and opting out this past season, but there is talent there. This is the proper spot to take a gamble on a guy many were mocking in the first round prior to the 2019 season.
Round 4, Pick 143: EDGE Cameron Sample, Tulane
The biggest defensive lineman standout at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Sample is a great guy to bring in to the fold with Tufele and Basham. Sample has some real upside and with the depth that the Vikings will have after this draft class, he will have time to develop.
