    Now that the WR room is full & stocked, Keim must add playmakers to the defensive front seven or the Oline.

    With that said, our defense the last 2 seasons has been very poor & the worst in the NFL last season.

    My list in order of preference:
    1) Isiah Simmons, ILB. This dude has HOF skills for a LB, he can do it all. He MIGHT slide to us, if 3 QBs go in the top 7

    2) Tristan Wirfs, RT. I luv this kid as well & think he’s got HOF talent. Very good pass protector & nasty in the run game. If you need an NFL Olineman, the Big 10 is the way to go!

    3) K’Lavon Chaisson, edge. Probably quicker off the snap than Chase Young, though not as productive in the sack game. Long arms, fast & uses hands well.

    who you got as your top 3 that might be available?

    My top 3 as of now are Wirfs, Wills and Brown. I don't believe that Simmons will be there at 8.

    Wilis, IMO has stud written all over him. He is the safe pick, Has multiple pro bowler written over him. Has way better technique and IQ then anybody else on the board and is actually a stud physically as well. Overall a much better package then the rest.

    I’ve heard that about so many “blue chip” OTs over the last decade

    If Simmons or Brown are still on the board you take them, even whichever OT they covet. If not, trade down a few spots & get the 2nd round pick back & maybe more. Then draft another good player. Why not go all out & draft one of the big 3 WR's at that point? Make our offense the most deadly to cover in the NFL.

    As much as I'd love to get a defensive stud, the priority has to be OL now. Nuk won't do much for us KM has no time to throw. With the big investment we will make once Nuk gets paid, a great offensive mind as HC and one of the best OL coaches, our goal has to be fielding a complete, dominate offense.

    Build around KM! Draft whoever you think is the best out of the top 4 OT prospects! Preferably Wirfs or Wills, who are proven at RT and freak athletes with advanced technique for their age. Simmons would probably be too tempting to pass on at 8. Okudah probably as well. As much as I like Brown and Kinnlaw, OL trumps DL in our case even if our DL is in worse state than our OL. We are clearly offense-first and rightfully so!

    Where there is a Will(s), there's a way. Or:

    Will(s) he or won't he?

    With the Diggs trade the Vikings now have 2 late first round picks (#22 and #25).

    If we are willing to move that far back the value is pretty equal and now we traded our second rounder (and had a lack of picks anyway) I wouldn't hate this move.

    If the mocks are to be trusted we could get 2 of these guys:

    - OT Austin Jackson
    - EDGE A.J. Epenesa
    - LB Kenneth Murray
    - DL Ross Blacklock
    - CB Trevon Diggs
    ect.

    Thoughts?
