Episode 77 | Evaluating the Vikings 2nd and 3rd round picks and looking forward to mid to late rounds
The Vikings were able to nab one of the best tight ends in the 2019 NFL Draft with Alabama's Irv Smith Jr. The Bama tight end has all the makeup to be an explosive pass catcher in the Vikings potent offense. They also bounced around quite a bit in round 3 making trade after trade and getting a haul in return. By the time the 3rd round ended they had themselves a new running back in Alexander Mattison. While he isn't one of the more hot names around the position he does fill a big need for the Vikings when it comes to a bruising back. He can get the tough yards also catch the ball out of the backfield.
We also look ahead to rounds 4-7 and what to expect from the Vikings in the most entertaining rounds of the draft.
