Fifth Round (Pick No. 168)

David Moore – G (Grambling State)

Expect the Vikings to look at the offensive line early and often during this 2021 NFL Draft since they not only need to figure out their starters, but they need to establish depth behind whoever ends up winning a spot in the starting lineup.

David Moore is a big boy, standing 6-foot-2 and weighing 330 pounds. His blocks come with a mean streak and his size allows him to create an anchor that can be tough for opposing interior defensive linemen to get through.

The two reasons he is low on many big boards is because he is a bit of a project and he hasn’t faced off against elite levels of competition during his time at Grambling State. Despite that, he could easily prove his worth and earn a spot on the team’s roster or practice squad.

Honestly, just about anyone from the 2021 NFL Draft class would be an interesting addition to the offensive linemen of the Vikings. Minnesota’s need for interior players means they should roll the dice on a few prospects and not push all their chips in on one player to be the answer.
