Prospect No. 6

Kamren Kinchens - S (Miami)

Safety isn't a huge need for the Vikings, but it's one they could still address at some point during the 2024 NFL Draft, depending on what happens with Harrison Smith's contract.

Kamren Kinchens was in the running to be the top safety selected before the Scouting Combine, but after his workout, he may end up being one of the last.

Kinchens was a ballhawk in his days at the "U" racking up 11 interceptions in his last two seasons combined. He was also very aggressive against the run, with 162 career tackles.

With his ability to cover such a large area in the back end, many figured he'd have a solid workout. Turns out he did the opposite.

Kinchens had about as bad a Scouting Combine as anyone in attendance.

His broad jump of 9-foot-2 was the worst number posted by a defensive back since 2015. He also ran a slow 40-yard dash time of 4.65 seconds. His 35-inch vertical was also on the lower end, which makes one question his lower body explosiveness.

It's a good thing that Kinchens has a lot of positive game tape, as his Scouting Combine performance was a disaster.
