    will be off the board”ESPN draft guy Todd McShay has a bit of a wrinkle for the Vikings in his latest mock draft (it’s behind the paywall Linval Joseph Jersey , so you won’t be able to see it unless you subscribe). With most everyone expecting (and a lot of Vikings fans pleading) to take an offensive lineman, he projects that Minnesota does something else entirely:Yeah, so this might be the point where pitchforks and torches come out at the draft party, but let’s look at a couple things before we burn Minneapolis to the ground. McShay projects that the top three offensive linemen are already off the board, and that changes things for me. Right now he has T Jonah Williams (Alabama) to Tampa Bay at five, T Jawaan Taylor (Florida) to Buffalo at nine, and T Cody Ford (Oklahoma) going 11th to Cincinnati. That would be the second year in a row the Bengals nab an o-lineman the Vikings are looking at (last year they drafted Billy Price), and it would irritate me more than Skyline Chili irritates my insides.So, that said, Sweat isn’t a bad play here. McShay is right in that you can’t have too many defensive ends, and with Everson Griffen’s future a bit murky, Sweat can come in and push for a starting job against Stephen Weatherly. At a minimum, you’d expect him to be a solid guy in the d-line rotation, and McShay projects no other offensive linemen to go in the first round. If the draft board unfolds this way, and the Vikings are focused on one of Williams, Taylor, or Ford Kirk Cousins Jersey , a trade down seems like a viable option as well. If they stay at 18 though, here are some other options still on McShay’s board the Vikes could also consider.T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa: McShay projects him 19th to Tennessee. Like Griffen, Kyle Rudolph has a big contract number that most folks expect to get re-worked. If it isn’t, and the worst case scenario of Rudolph being released materializes, Hockenson would be a good pick, although a bit surprising. A lot of folks think he’s the best TE in the class, and is almost as good a run blocker as he is at catching passes.Devin Bush, LB, Mich[That Team Up North]an: Barr’s contract status is even more in flux than Rudolph and Griffen. He’s set to become an unrestricted free agent, and unless Barr and the Vikings can come to terms, I think he walks. Over The Cap has projected the franchise tag number for 2019at over $15 million for a linebacker, which is a big deal. If Minnesota tagged Barr, that would hurt the Vikes in terms of having cap space for possible free agents, regardless of what contracts they re-work or players they release.All in all, it could be worse. I’d prefer an offensive linemen Adrian Peterson Jersey , as I think most fans would, but reaching for a guy at 18 just to get one while passing over a better player at a different position isn’t a smart strategy. In this scenario, Sweat seems like a good pick here.

Check them out! Original story follows.<hr class=”p-entry-hr” id=”LOi650″>Every year when Training Camp gets underway, fans of the Minnesota Vikings have been keeping their eyes open for who they think might be the next Mr. Mankato. Yes, even though the team has moved their Training Camp to the new Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center in Eagan, the moniker of “Mr. Mankato” has managed to stick. Some traditions die harder than others. Plus, it’s just a lot more fun to say than “Mr. Eagan” or “Mr. Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center.”But back to the point, which is this year’s Mr. Mankato competition. There aren’t really any hard and fast rules for someone to win Mr. Mankato, but the primary requirement seems to be that, to be eligible, you must be a third-round draft pick or later. From looking at last year’s list, where some Twin Cities media types posted odds for the informal competition John Randle Jersey , you don’t necessarily have to be a rookie, either, but you can’t be an established vet, obviously.There haven’t been any informal odds or anything established this year, so we’re just going to ask all of you: Who do you think is going to put on a performance worthy of this year’s “Mr. Mankato” title?My personal pick is someone that I think is going to emerge from the battle for the #3 wide receiver spot, which promises to be the most exciting and competitive battle of camp this year. Someone needs to step up behind Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs on the depth chart, and there’s no shortage of names that are going to be fighting to do just that. I know that Chad Beebe appears to be the favorite to become WR3 at this point, but I think a lot of people are already expecting big things from him in 2019, so I’m going to avoid taking him as my pick.Instead, I’m going to go with Dillon Mitchell, one of the Vikings’ seventh-round picks in this April’s draft out of Oregon.Mitchell had an incredibly productive final season for the Ducks, setting the Oregon record for single-season receiving yardage. He came out after his junior year, but slid to the seventh round. His father came out after the draft and said that it was because NFL teams had been fed “false info” about the younger Mitchell’s character, and that he had apparently been given a much higher grade from the NFL’s College Advisory Committee.I think that Mitchell is going to come into this camp with the Vikings with something to prove, and that he’s going to get plenty of opportunities to do so. That’s why he’s my personal pick to take hom the Mr. Mankato crown in 2019 and make the team’s final 53-man roster, barring injury of course.Who do you folks see as someone that you think is going to light up Training Camp this year and take home the Mr. Mankato title?
