Minnesota Vikings 2016 NFL Draft Recap
The NFL Draft has come and gone for another year, and now it's time to dissect the picks!
It can be argued that it takes at least three full seasons to determine just how well a draft class pans out. This year, the Vikings addressed a few "needs", but mostly drafted for depth as Coach Mike Zimmer wants his team to be more competitive!
The best example of that came in the 2nd Round, as the Vikings drafted corner back Mackensie Alexander out of Clemson. With Captain Munnerlyn entering his final year of a 3-year contract, Terrance Newman turning 39 years old this season, and last years 1st Round pick Trae Waynes not being able to crack the starting lineup until the final week of the season, it's fair to say Zimmer and General Manager Rick Spielman made this move not only for depth, but to push the players already on the roster to do better - and I LOVE it.
Besides choosing Laquon Treadwell with their first overall pick this year, they also grabbed another wide receiver - Moritz Boehringer in the 6th Round... which by the way, he's the first pick EVER to be drafted straight out of Europe, and it may be the pick of the draft for the team. BUT we'll have to wait and see... (Sorry, I get excited sometimes.)
So in this edition of the 'Two-Minute Drill' Scotty and Frank recap the draft, talking about who the Minnesota Vikings picked, how they think those picks will do and what they did to already add to next season's draft...
