2020 NFL Mock Draft: Minnesota Vikings add edge rusher

With the 25th overall pick in the 2020 Bleeding Green Nation community mock draft, Minnesota Vikings GM MrW254 selects ...

NCAA Football: Purdue at Penn State John Jones-USA TODAY Sports

Yetur Gross-Matos, EDGE, Penn State

I went back and forth about potentially double dipping at CB here. When you lose CB1 & CB2, that can happen to you. The earlier run on cornerbacks saw the flashy names go off the board. I was very tempted to grab AJ Terrell here, but the opportunity to pair Danielle Hunter with Gross-Matos shouldn’t be passed up. At 6’5” 264, he has the length and explosion to give tackles fits. He won’t have to see opponents’ best tackle opposite Hunter either. Uses hands well and will build on some of his technique lapses as he gets coached up in NFL. Another later round CB would suffice, but the drop off in edge talent is much steeper. Vikings make this pick and feel good about it.
