    Trading him is one thing, but seriously....all we got for him was moving from a 7th to a likely very late 6th?!

    Drafting him seemed alright at the time, but while we wouldn't necessarily have drafted some of these guys, the next players off the board were:
    Sony Michel
    Lamar Jackson
    Austin Corbett
    Will Hernandez
    Nick Chubb
    Braden Smith
    Ronald Jones
    James Daniels
    Courtland Sutton

    I mean holy crap....
    This is why generally I think Rick is better off trading out of the first...'cause for every Justin Jefferson (who literally fell into his lap) there's a Laquan Treadwell, a Trae Waynes, and a Mike Hughes......

    Let's just hope Darrisaw isn't Matt Kalil Part Dieux

    Honestly what did you expect to get for him? We're lucky we got anything in return. The cap savings is probably the best part and it's only just under 2 million. Hughes has had an ACL tear, a cracked vertebra in his neck, and then another neck injury. Who knows if he'll actually be able to play again.
    2021 Vikings Draft:
    1: Christian Darrisaw OT Virginia Tech
    3: Kellen Mond QB Texas A&M
    3: Chazz Surratt LB North Carolina
    3: Wyatt Davis G Ohio State
    3: Patrick Jones III DE Pittsburgh
    4: Kene Nwangwu RB Iowa State
    4: Camryn Bynum S California
    4: Janarius Robinson DE Florida State
    5: Ihmir Smith-Marsette WR Iowa
    5: Zach Davidson TE Central Missouri St.
    6: Jaylen Twyman DT Pittsburgh

    oh, it wasn't that I expected anything (tho moving up 15 spots on day 3 next year is pretty much nothing) it was more about the fact that this is what we turned a 1st rd pick into...again

    Cheddar, swiss, asiago got a nice merlot for ya draft picks whatever that secondary was already thin with El wife beater status still in question and I'm not sold on Patrick Peterson no depth back there.

    You know what's going to happen now, don't you? Mike Hughes will never be injured again, have a solid career in the slot for the Chiefs, and we'll draft Mr irrelevant in the 6th next year.

    Still, trading Hughes almost certainly has to mean they plan to sign a FA corner soon....right?

    Just a guess but with Darrisaw signing today I'm thinking the Vikings are going to sign their draft class and wait until Rudy's deal comes off the books in June before signing any FA's. Rookie mini camp starts today so they probably also want to get a look at what they have in these young guys before making a move. Plus with so many veterans deciding to skip voluntary OTA's this year any FA the Vikings sign won't need to be brought in until the mandatory minicamp starts on June 15th.

    I know some people were interested in the Vikings signing him but Ryan Kerrigan just signed with the Eagles

    Doogie tweeted the Vikings had interest but never offered a contract. I think Kerrigan is washed up so I'm glad we didn't sign him. If we go after an edge rusher I would rather it be Melvin Ingram.

    If you didn't watch it yesterday, there was a kid who may be in the supplemental draft that played in the FCS Championship for Sam Houston that we may want to pay attention to- Jequez Ezzard. The highlight I linked is from Howard, but he transferred to Sam Houston for this year- only to end up in a spring season, not opt out, so wasn't available for the draft. Kid is fast, tough, with great hands even though he's only 5'9"
