Seventh-Round Pick (206th overall) via Arizona

Ladd McConkey - WR (Georgia)

Ladd McConkey could go as early as the third round or as late as the end of the seventh. That is how hard it is to project him at the next level. McConkey is strictly a slot receiver, and he lacks the strength needed to play on the outside at the next level.

However, McConkey is extremely efficient in the slot, and some team may value his ability to dominate from the slot with a Day 2 pick. I personally don't see McConkey going that high, and we could see teams waiting as late as the seventh before he is targeted.

Justin Jefferson and Jordan Addison will both be moved around a ton in Kevin O'Connell's offense, but when O'Connell wants to put both of his star receivers on the outside, adding a player like McConkey could create one of the most dangerous and high-powered offenses this league has.

Although it's a long way away, how do you see the 2024 Vikings draft playing out?
