    Mike Zimmer was one dimensional at best .. all defense.. could care less about the offense. He wanted to run, run, pass, then try to let the defense win. In today's NFL that's a recipe for disaster and Rick Speilman had to guess at what to put together for this team. A new Offensive Coordinator every year doesn't help either as the offensive couldn't find consistency. But it seems Kwesi & KoC we're side by side throughout this draft and teamwork makes the dream work man. Good draft that expressed needs for the team. SKOL VIKINGS BABY!!! 🎉🎉🎉

    This grade is BS.
    C at best.

    You gave TWO division opponents picks ahead of you to improve their teams.

    Maybe Queasy doesn't know (but he definitely should) that we HATE the Packers and anytime you HELP them you're the enemy. Go work for them. Maybe you already are.

    Secondly, by trading back at 34 you essentially turned your #12 to a 32 with NO additional compensation for doing the LIONS a favor.

    So you would have picked Cine at 12 basically if he's your guy. A pick EVERYONE would call a reach.

    It's not value to constantly drop back to pick lower grade talent.

    What if Booth doesn't drop? Would you grade this ANYTHING less than a D? And the big question is why did he drop so far?
    Is Queasy suddenly some genius that the rest of the NFL doesn't know about this guy?

    I change my grade. D.

    He got lucky with a player that dropped and as you can see he reached for the others.

    For giving aid to division opponents alone he should be fired.

    I hope the new administration knows something we don't. You want to give them the benefit of the doubt but I'm struggling to see the logic in their draft class. I am excited too see their dbs have the potential to develop into stars. They did fill their needs but as a life long vikings fan they need to build a foundation with their offensive line. They have not had a good offensive line for decades and it is a major reason they can never go the distance. Their defense, especially corners have been lacking for a long ass time as well and I like that they addressed that but they need to get some beef up front and protect the qb. Cousins gets happy feet as soon as he feels pressure and his brain scrambles upon impact. Hate to say it but we have another year of disappointment ahead of us. Feel sorry for guys like Jefferson, Theilan and cook because their careers are being wasted with every pick they trade down with division rivals and no line to show for it. At this point we may as well join the dog pound and bring paper bags to the game. Your fan base and your veterans deserve a championship, no more excuses!

    Kwesi needs to be a little shrewder on these deals. If a division rival wants to trade up with you then you need to ask for a little more than a box of crackerjacks. I still can't believe they gave up 46 in that deal with the Lions

    Commenters are usually to kind when it comes to draft grades. As a frustrated Vikings fan I give them an F. Giving away their best picks to division rivals for close to nothing was absurd! They had so much talent to choose from at number 12 and traded it in for future practice squad players. Spielman was just being nice. I’m sure he was laughing his ass off behind the scenes.

    I really like this draft, the trades not so much. But there was a clear theme the Vikings were going for on defense and that is solid tacklers with speed, something that has been lacking on the Minnesota defense for the last few seasons now (Kendricks and Smith excluded).
