“shenanigans” might not be the best word choice there. I might have substituted “accusations” or “legal issues” if I was your editor.

I still think we go LT in the first. Yes, the Vikes have had stopgap starting LT’s in between their long-term starters, from Chuck Goodrum in 1974 to Charlie Johnson in 2011, but every long-term starting LT since 1974 has been a first round draft choice, someone’s 1st round pick: Riley, Zimmerman (NYG), Steussie, McKinnie, Kalil and Reiff (DET). Rashod Hill is a perfect stopgap option, but Riley didn’t start as a rookie, and McKinnie only started the last seven games of his rookie season, so we could still drop a #1 on a LT even if Hill ends up opening the season as the starter.

Half of the first rounders in the Zimmer Era have been on offense, and 11 of our 20 1st through 3rd rounders have been on offense, so I don’t think we’ll be ignoring the OL on the first two days of the draft this year. In fact, here’s my prediction as of today if no trades are made:

1 – LT
3a-3b – G, DE
4a-4d – WR, ILB, CB, S
5a-5b – TE, RB
6 – PK, LS or DT
