Because my first round mock draft was so successful (5 of 32, baby!), I thought it’d be a great idea to do a Day 2 Mock Draft. Really, this is just a fun exercise to see what players might be available when the Vikings are on the clock in rounds 2 and 3. Sort of an exhibit to an article I posted earlier today looking deeper at potential Vikings targets.

After selecting Trae Waynes in the first round, the Vikings biggest positions of need remain linebacker, safety, guard and maybe wide receiver. Luckily for us, there are so exceptional prospects still available and some are surely to fall.

Check out the full simulation of Round 2 below as well as a little bit of Round 3 until the Vikings are back on the clock.


Second Round

1 (33) Titans / T.J. Clemmings, OT – Pittsburgh
2 (34) Buccaneers / Jake Fisher, OT – Oregon
3 (35) Raiders / Owamagbe Odighizuw, Edge – UCLA
4 (36) Jaguars / Benardrick McKinney, ILB – Mississippi St.
5 (37) Jets / Brett Hundley, QB – UCLA
