Round 6 Pick 1: Sheldrick Redwine, S – Miami (Fla.)
The sixth round is a little late to be adding some depth at safety, but the way the players continue to fall pushed it down the list. Selecting Sheldrick Redwine in the sixth round should be an interesting acquisition, but is also a bit of a gamble.
Letting Andrew Sendejo walk and moving ahead with Anthony Harris as the new starter is a bit of a bold move but it also reduces some of the depth behind Harrison Smith. With just Jayron Kearse, Duke Thomas, Jordan Martin, and Derron Smith on the roster, a little more competition would be nice as well as some possible special teams help.
Redwine improved each season with the Hurricanes, posting season-highs in total tackles, tackles for a loss, sacks, and interceptions during his senior year in 2018. In addition, he played four years in the NCAA with an aggressive, strong style which would fit in well in Minnesota.
Standing six feet tall and weighing 196 pounds, Redwine still needs work in coverage but is solid in run support and could be a bit of a project for the Minnesota Vikings, who should love his size and speed combination.
