First Round Prediction


The Vikings hold the 18th pick in the 2019 NFL draft, and there are 7 prospects (in my opinion) on this list that could be taken with the 18th pick.

There is a consensus amongst Vikings fans that they should take an offensive lineman with their first pick, and if you look at this list of visits, it is easy to see that it is heavily dominated by offensive lineman.

If I had to put my money on it, I would say the Vikings will take an offensive lineman with their first pick in the draft. At the same time, if there is no viable lineman available when the Vikings are on the clock, I don’t think Spielman would reach.
