Third Round (Pick No. 105)
Nick Harris – IOL (Washington)
The Vikings finally address the hole on their interior offensive line by adding Nick Harris. Harris played center at Washington but can slide to guard if the Vikings want to keep Garrett Bradbury in his role.
I like Harris and his potential fit on the Viking offense. He is a good mover in space and was an excellent leader in the screen game. He is effective as a pass blocker and in the run game and has shown that he can win with power in the trenches.
The Vikings want to get their running backs into space and get the screen game going early, as we saw often in 2019. Nick Harris would be an easy transitional piece to join a young offensive line and would be excellent value at this point in the draft.
With Dru Samia on the roster as well, the Minnesota Vikings may have their guards of the future and would have an athletic offensive line that fits their scheme. If they pass on linemen early in the draft, Nick Harris is a great option a bit later.
