  • Hagy's Mock :)

    Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft – 4/05

    Ok well here’s my first shot at an actual mock for us. I’m a rookie so take this with a grain of salt and let me know what you guys think. I'll probably do another update the week of the draft but for now this is what I think could happen. Go ahead, let me have it.

    1.22 – Hakeem Nicks – WR – North Carolina
    I’ve made it known on this board that I really like Harvin for us but the number of red flags probably means he is going to be off our board when draft day arrives. That being said I really like Hakeem Nicks for us as well. He is a big body that is great after the catch and should be a terror in the red zone. With Peterson forcing teams to put extra guys in the box and Berrian stretching the field Nicks should see a ton of favorable matchups. The way we pursued TJ Housh indicates our need for a big time playmaker at the WR position and Nicks is just that. Obviously OL and CB are the other options at this pick.



    2.54 – Jamon Meredith – OT – South Carolina
    This pick is going to be either OL or CB. I think that we go Meredith because we have more of a need at this position. I think that Meredith will be the highest rated OT available at 54 which makes him the pick. He is an experienced player and should fill in nicely on the right side. Ryan Cook has struggled badly playing on the outside so Meredith should step in right away and contribute.



    3.86 – Macho Harris – CB – Virginia Tech
    At this point Macho would be a great value and terrific fit for our system. Harris has adequate size, is physical and has great ball skills. There is a chance that he is gone at this point but if he’s available he is going to be the pick. He would immediately compete for a nickel spot and can also help out on special teams right away. Macho is a very confident kid that should be able to hold his own at the next level.



    5.158 – Chris Baker – DT – Hampton
    Here I am simply agreeing with Dynasty’s fifth round pick. I think that DT is going to be addressed at some point in this draft in order to find an eventual replacement for Pat Williams. At this point Baker will probably be the best available. He would also be pressed into action early on if the Williams’ Wall loses their case and are forced to sit out early next year.



    7.221 – Sammie Stroughter – WR – Oregon State
    This is a pick that will impact special teams right away could offer some upside at the WR position as well. Stroughter could be very dangerous returning kicks and punts inside the Dome. This kid is very elusive and the few times I watched him play he really had that WOW factor in the return game. I also really like the Wallace kid from Ole Miss but he should probably be gone at this point.



    7.231 – Tim Jamison – DE – Michigan
    We could use some depth at DE and while Jamison won’t be an impact player he could be a nice depth chart filler.

    I would love if this was our draft and i could see a lot of it happening. Not sure if Baker will be there in the 5th round, though...

      I would say this would be a very good draft for us. I like Nicks, and Macho Harris. Dont know too much on Jamon but from what Ive heard Ive liked. Also I like the 7th round KR pick. So if this happens on Draft Day I would be happy.

        Pretty much my ideal draft man. If we get Nicks, Meredith and Macho I will be a very happy man on draft day.
        SKOL VIKINGS!

          The worst thing is sitting there on draft day when the guys you want are available and then the team goes in a totally different direction. It wouldn't surprise me to this happen a couple times this year, because I really think we could go a ton of different ways.

            That would be pretty good, I'm pretty sure Baker won't last that far, I'm in the process of doing a full 7 round mock and he went in the late 2nd to Miami, and I can't see him getting out of the 3rd. Nicks is pretty good, but I'm starting to think after he put on so much weight that he isn't worth a pick at 22 as there would likely be better options at RT or even WR, such as Britt(who I'm a big fan of) or DHB. Other than that, it looks good. I don't think Jamison makes it to the 7th as he will likely be picked anywhere from the 4th-6th. Also, I'd like to see us get some depth at S/LB somewhere in the late rounds.

              Thanks for the kind words. Hopefully I'll be able to an update early next week and then one more the week of the draft.

                I'm a big fan of that draft and appreciate the effort. Nicks and Harris are two picks I love, and I feel both would fit seemlessly into our plans right out of the gate. I'm not a huge Meredith fan, but just seeing anyone other than Ryan Cook planted at right tackle would make me happy. Overall I like it and would be very happy walking away with that type of haul.

                  I think this is kinda of odd But Matt birk played LT in college and got moved to center and everyone kinda scratched their head and bitched we didnt resign Christie. Ryan Cook was a center we moved to tackle but something tells me he goes back inside or we draft Unger in the second round or the tackle from Oklahoma Personally Id love this draft.

                  1 Nicks
                  2OT Oklahoma
                  3 Macho
                  5 Pat White <-------------he could really be something and in all honesty he may even be able to start on this team at qb
                  6th fb/te
                  7th If davis the qb from ball state is available he is worth this pick especially if we dont draft Pat white
                  7th the dt from hampton some say he wont get drafted if he does it wont be until real late.
                  7th

                    I was confused with your paragraph. Are you talking about what we're going to do at C? If so, we drafted Sullivan last year and the team really likes him. Also, we have no 6th round pick. That went to Philly from the Kelly Holcomb deal a year or two ago. Another of Chilly's dumb QB moves. Also, The OT from Oklahoma is Phil Loadholt, Pat White'll be gone by the 5th, and the DT from hampton is Baker and he will be gone by the time the 4th round starts and he could even go in the late 2nd, he is moving up draft boards, due to his ability to play 3-4 NT or DE, or 4-3 DT, so he won't be available in the 7th.

                          5.158 - Darryl Richard (Georgia Tech)
                          7.221 - Sammie Stroughter (Oregon State)

                            Hagy's Mock 2.0 (Updated April 16th)

                            Hagy's Minnesota Vikings Mock 2.0 - April 16th
                            Needs: QB, OT, WR, CB, DT


                            1.22 – Eben Britton – OT – Arizona
                            April 5th Pick: Hakeem Nicks – WR - North Carolina


                            It’s obvious to everyone that the offensive line needs to be upgraded after watching that right side last year, not to mention the question marks with Mount McKinnie. Britton would be able to step in right away and contribute, something that coach Childress needs in order to keep his job. Adding a wide receiver is an option but I just don’t see us going that direction in round one any more. Given the depth of the receiver class I think this pick is on the offensive line.



                            2.54 – Victor “Macho” Harris – CB – Virginia Tech
                            April 5th Pick: Jamon Meredith – OT – South Carolina


                            OK. OK. This may be a reach but a good one at that. He may have third round value but I really like Macho and I don’t think he’ll make it to our pick at 86. The big guns at the wide-out position will be long gone by now and I think Harris will be the best available cover two corner. He brings great experience and ball skills to the table and could even help out in the return game. I think this kid is a gamer and will step in right away and play nickel for our favorite team.



                            3.86 – Juaquin Iglesias – WR – Oklahoma
                            April 5th Pick: Victor “Macho” Harris – CB – Virginia Tech


                            I’ve really come to like Juaquin at this point in the draft. He is a good playmaker that played in some huge games at OU. We need to address the wide receiver position at some point in the draft and I think this is a perfect time to do it. He could step in, play the slot and give the Sage/TJack show another option in the passing game. This pick completes the trio of our big needs (OT,CB,WR), aside from the QB position of course!



                            5.158 – Darryl Richard – DT – Georgia Tech
                            April 5th Pick: Chris Baker – DT – Hampton


                            Defensive tackle is another position that should be addressed in this draft and while Richard isn’t an impact type player, he could be a good option should one of the Williams’ Wall go down. I like the idea of a mid-round DT as opposed to a higher pick because our defensive line just doesn’t warrant a high pick at this point with so many other needs. The Baker kid from Hampton would be better but he will probably be long gone at this point.



                            7.221 – Sammie Stroughter – WR – Oregon State
                            April 5th Pick: SAME


                            This is the same pick I had in the prior mock, for obvious reasons our special teams could use a boost and Stroughter is just that. He will help out immediately in the return game and I really think he offers good upside at the WR position. We’ve spent late picks on receivers in previous years and they haven’t panned out, we really need some good young depth that can contribute on Sundays.



                            7.231 – Tim Jamison – DE – Michigan
                            April 5th Pick: SAME


                            Another pick the same as the last mock. I think Jamison could fall this far and if he does we should pounce. He’ll provide even more depth for our defensive line and at this point of the draft that is all you are really looking for.

                              I like it. Not a sexy draft, but it plugs some big holes and Britton, Harris, and Iglesias should all contribute as early as next season. I'd be happy if the draft played out that way and I'd be OK reaching for Macho as I'm very high on him as well. Good work. :)
