draft http://www.thevikingslockerroom.com/authentic-mike-hughes-jersey , the Minnesota Vikings needed to address several areas. On offense, they needed a running back to replace Latavius Murray and complement Dalvin Cook, a tight end of the future, and they could still use another lineman. The defense was more set, but depth on the line, at linebacker, and cornerback were areas that could have been taken care of.After three picks and four trades, the Vikings got three really good football players.In the second round, Minnesota selected TE Irv Smith from Alabama, a guy who might be the best catch-block combo tight end in the draft. In the third round, they took Boise St RB Alexander Mattison after several trades down to the bottom of the round. Mattison looks like a guy that can step right in to the Murray role, and he is a ball of hate when he’s toting the rock. When you add in first round pick Garrett Bradbury, a guy you can pencil in to start on the o-line today, Minnesota has three guys that will contribute significantly right away, and that’s a good thing. It’s also the first time in the Mike ZImmer era that the Vikings have gone offense with their first three picks,I really like all three players, just so that’s on the record. My only quibble, at least last night, was the amount of trading GM Rick Spielman did do get to where the Vikings sit this morning. The Vikes stayed put in the second round when they drafted Smith (pick 50 overall) Womens Tom Compton Jersey , but the third round was a wild one. They started out at pick 81, which they traded to Detroit. Did anyone else get 2010 Chris Cook flashbacks when that happened, or was that just me? Just me? Okay, then.After the Lions trade, the Vikes moved down again, to 92, in a trade with Seattle, and I thought they were done. That trade netted them a fifth rounder, which they didn’t have going into the draft, and if my math is right that gave Spielman his magical ten picks. But no, there were two more trades coming! First there was a move one spot down to 93, and they finally ended up with the last pick of the third round, 102.As the Vikings enter the last four rounds today, they have a whopping nine picks—one each in the fourth and fifth rounds, four in the sixth round, and three in the seventh. We can debate and argue as to whether or not Minnesota should have stayed at 81 and picked someone, or even at 92 or 93, and those conversations are already raging. I mean look, the chances of finding a good player is a lot better the earlier you pick Kyle Rudolph Jersey , because duh, but consider this information from our old friend Arif Hasan:So by some more advanced metrics, the Vikings came out ahead on these trades and have an opportunity to find a couple of really good diamonds in the rough. If you have faith in the scouting department that found Everson Griffen (fourth round), Jarius Wright (fourth), Shamar Stephen (seventh), Stefon Diggs (fifth), and Jayron Kearse (seventh), the chances of the Vikings hitting on one or two of these picks seems decent.However, if you’re of the mind that these are the same guys that drafted T.J. Clemmings, Willie Beavers, MoBo, and the other litany of late round picks that never worked out, you’re probably irritated as Hell right now, and I understand the frustration. But consider this: The Vikings have a ton of draft capital today to either move up in the fourth round, up in the fifth round, up in the fourth AND fifth round, or maybe swing a deal and get an extra 4 or 5.And there are a TON of good players still available.For me, the bottom line is that the Vikings got a lot better on paper the last two days on offense, and they have enough picks left to move up and target players they want http://www.thevikingslockerroom.com/authentic-nick-easton-jersey , which Rick Spielman has a history of doing.Let’s see how today pans out. Thursday night’s win by the Vikings could have gone the other way, thanks to a curious decision made by coach Mike Zimmer in the second half.With 2:48 left in the third quarter and the Vikings facing fourth and one from their own 34 after a Washington field goal cut the margin to 16-9, Zimmer opted to go for it. A poorly-executed quarterback sneak went nowhere, and Washington reclaimed possession of the ball with a short field and a chance to tie the game.The circumstances screamed out “punt” in that situation. Rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins had just finagled a scoring drive, and the Vikings handed him a chance to follow a six-play, 50-yard drive with a 34-yard march to the end zone.Two plays later, Haskins overthrew his receiver and Vikings safety Anthony Harris snagged the ball, quickly ending the threat. If it had gone another way, however, the Vikings could have found themselves tied with Washington in the fourth quarter.Zimmer ultimately trusted his defense, which had bent but not broken on several drives earlier in the game, to defend the final 34 yards. But it was at best a calculated risk, one that could have eventually undermined the team’s three-game winning streak by squandering the lead and potentially setting the stage for a loss to a seven-loss team.The fact that the defense made a play validated Zimmer’s decision. Still, it will be interesting to see whether Zimmer throws caution to the wind in future fourth-down situations in his own territory in games his team is leading by only one score. On Thursday night, he got away with it — without converting on fourth down.
