2013 NFL Mock Draft. The Minnesota Vikings Select…

Looking forward to the draft even though the Vikings are still playing? Well the guys at Fansided.com did their weekly mock and it’s my solemn duty to report on their guess for the Vikings. Here’s who the mockers have mocked to the Vikes in their latest mock:

22. Minnesota Vikings – Kenny Vaccaro, Safety, Texas

The Vikings play in a division with Aaron Rodgers, Matt Stafford and Jay Cutler. Needless to say, they need all the help they can get in the secondary. Adding a defensive back like Vaccaro would help the Vikings against the pass and can you imagine a Vaccaro – Harrison Smith duo for years to come?

Safety is a big need for sure. Anything that adds to the defensive talent base and gives Alan Williams more flexibility is fine with me. Anything that gets Mistral Raymond off the field is even more fine with me. What a terrible game Raymond had against Green Bay. He’s a big liability back there. That said, no way the Vikes take anything other than the best receiver available. This is an easy one for them. Percy Harvin will be gone and they will need to upgrade the receiver talent. And they won’t lay out big cash for a wide receiver. Rick Spielman has fiscal discipline.

    We can’t afford to go into next season counting on a rookie wideout. I expect we’ll acquire our number one (and maybe more) wr in free agency and draft best player available in the first round. We need a top tier LB (greenway isn’t one) even more than a safety.

  • we in this thang

    linebacker is not the problem we need another starting safety and corner as well as at least two wr and another offensive guard on the oline we have done a great job in the draft we need one more great daft to get us over the hump which i believe is possible.

    I have also thought that if they could snag a top Safety they should…Vaccario is already gone in most mocks however and this could be wishful thinking. I like taking the receiver out of Tennessee or a DT maybe LB. But yes..I totally would love to have Safety zipped up for years as well!!! Vikings had a great draft last year…I have no problem in putting my trust into Speilman…Oh and if Warmack is there grab the OG!!! Peterson would totally love this!!
