Second Round (Pick No. 58)

Jaylon Johnson – CB (Utah)

The Vikings double-dip again, this time by way of position rather than school. Sure, they have plenty of other needs, but the value at pick 58 does not bring in offensive linemen in this simulation. Jaylon Johnson gives them another starting cornerback early in the draft to help boost the secondary.

Jaylon Johnson has received plenty of first-round hype over the last few weeks, but I am not sure that happens right now. In this particular mock, Johnson fell to pick 58 and the Vikings ran to the phone to submit the pick.

Johnson is a physical cornerback with good length and speed on the outside. His long arms consistently get into the hands to disrupt throws or knock the ball out of the receiver’s hands. He is also not afraid to come down and tackle in the run game or lay the boom on an unsuspecting receiver. His traits and tools will be perfect to go opposite Fulton and start in this Vikings defense.

Through the first two rounds of the draft, the Minnesota Vikings have vastly improved their secondary and added a dynamic weapon to the offense.
