Harrison Hand – CB (Temple)

Grade: A-

This should be one of the favorite picks for Vikings fans. Harrison Hand a versatile piece that can move around from boundary corner to safety. He has tremendous instincts in zone coverage in addition to doing a fantastic job at undercutting routes bursting out of his backpedal to make a play on the ball and the receiver.

He’s also physical in the run game and isn’t afraid to make a big hit on the ball carrier. He’s someone that Mike Zimmer is going to fall in love with and should make an impact early on in his career.

K.J. Osborn – WR (Miami)

Grade: B-

You all remember Minnesota’s last mid-round receiving prospect, right? He now plays for the Buffalo Bills.

Now, K.J. Osborn isn’t on the same level as Stefon Diggs yet, obviously, but he provides some similar athletic traits. Osborn is a twitchy athlete that is creative in his routes and he can create separation very naturally. He doesn’t have the diverse route tree that Diggs has, but that’ll take time to learn in an NFL offense.

He does a good job tracking the ball over his shoulder and he has some nice hands to him. After he gets the ball in his hands, he’s physical and he has a really good field vision. He’s also someone that can help out in the return game as well.
