Quite a bit of talent still left. Who would y'all like us to add after the draft?

Greg Stroman CB

Trenton Thompson DT

JC Jackson CB

Timon Parris T

Matthew Thomas LB

Kurt Benkert QB
Justin Jackson RB

Kevin Tolliver CB

Deontay Burnett WR

 

I think JC Jackson is a great fit in our scheme, and Matthew Thomas is an underrated linebacker who has a good amount of speed and potential. I'd like these two specifically.

I forgot about Tolliver. I think he'd fit in perfectly with what we're doing on defense. His NFL comparison on NFL.com is Quincy Wilson fwiw

Yeah I can't believe he hasn't been drafted. I guess teams don't like his attitude. I heard he comes off as egotistical.

Did Quenton Meeks get drafted?

 

Not that I'm aware of...

 

Im guessing he might have some unknown (to us) medical issue...  csnt think if another reason he wouldn't be drafted.

Not a fan of the Indiana guys but wouldn't mind them coming in as UDFAs.

 

And I'm going to throw Akrum Wadley in there too. I don't care if he's a Marlon Mack clone. He has way too much ability to go undrafted. That's crazy.

Skai Moore is worth a look too. Outstanding production and instincts but is undersized and not a tremendous athlete.

Here is the UDFA tracker:

Allen Lazard, WR, Iowa State
Quenton Meeks, CB, Stanford
Eddy Pineiro, K, Florida

 

Those 3 I wanted are all with the Jaguars. Hate to say it, the Jaguars are the current darlings of the AFC South that players want to play for. 

Their roster is stupid deep. If they had a better QB they would be unstoppable...

That is crazy I didn't realize he wasn't drafted. The kid can line up in the slot as well as the backfield. He had some attitude issues at Iowa but nothing crazy stuff like long tds wiped out for high stepping. That kid is a baller as I've mentioned  a good friend of mine is a Hawkeyes so I see a lot of their games. He is undersized but man I can't believe he couldn't help a team

Holy molly! This is a great list for UDFAs... wait... is the "more" category players Vikings have signed or others you like and want to sign?

Yes, these are all the players they have signed. Soon after the draft, only the first five were reported and confirmed. Then those under "more" started trickling in. I have been adding to the list as I learn of them.

 

The fans are more excited about the UDFAs than about the drafted players. 

 

Besides Hill, who do you like on that list? I wanted Sean Welsh but he signed elsewhere.

This is insane UDFA class for the Vikings. I had Korey Robertson as a 4th round value ahead of both WRs the Colts selected - he's great after the catch and has good size and athleticism. Mata'afa is a tricky projection and that's probably why he dropped out of the draft but he's interesting prospect(i had him as a 5th rounder). We've already discussed Hill. Dooley, Roc Thomas, Wieneke, Matthews were all draftable players IMO. That's a very nice group you got there. I am not too familiar with the lower end of your roster so I don't know how good of a chance they have to stick around, but they will bring great competition for roster spots at the very least.

Thank you. I don't know that many will make the team but let's see. A few made the team last year. One was Tashawn Bower who contributed a lot. Aviante Collins also played, especially towards the end of the season and in the playoffs.

 

It seems like the Jaguars may also have signed a great group of UDFAs.

Tegray Scales had an off-year.  He would have been drafted last year.  Cobbs is not afraid of going over the middle and getting hit.  Good call on Wadley.  Agree.

 

####Edit.....Tennessee plucked him

I like the Moore and Ishamel signings.  The others I'm not familiar with.

    • I can't beat PT's list but I've been to some.    Baseball Mets -- many times since 1992; one year I went to over 20 games, but I go to one or two a year now.   Spring Training-- Mets, in southern Florida   I have also been to a few Yankees games but it has been a while.   Minor league baseball: Mets in Binghamton, NY in 1992   NFL -- Vikings in MN, DC, Atlanta in last 3 years; Giants, at least one game a year since 2014; Jets, about 7 games since 1996   NBA basketball -- about 3 or 4 Knicks games   Hockey -- 1 game (I am not a hockey fan)   College Basketball -- in college and later at Madison Square Garden (saw Indiana, Temple, and some other teams)   Tennis -- I used to go to the US Open but it has been a while since I was last there.      I'd like to attend a round of a golf tournament.
    • I think you're reading WAY too much into this.     This is only the first projection of the first round by one guy.     We've run maybe a 1/2 mile out of a marathon.      And I didn't even list all 32 guys.      And it's not even clear we would take a DE with our first round pick.    We might take a DT.    I don't know which.    But as long as it's one of them,  I'm good with this.   I think the chances of the Colts taking a OT or a WR in the first round are very small.    An OT would make FOUR lineman taken in the first round.     I don't see that happening.   And as I've written about extensively now,  even yesterday in another thread,   there is almost no value in a first round WR.   Six of the last 7 drafts,  the vast majority of WR's taken in the first round are mostly below average to busts.    This is league-wide,  not just a Colts thing.   The only draft that is the exception is the 2014 draft with Beckham for starters.   It's an eye popping first round.     All the rest of the drafts, are somewhere between Meh on the high side,  to bust on the low side.   Don't see us going offense in the first round.    And if I had my wish, we wouldn't go offense until Day 3.    But, I'm putting the cart before the horse....     All I'm saying is that's it's very early in the process...     this is just a conversation starter...    
    • This guy looks good.  
    • you kind sir, seem to be in the minority of what the majority of Lions fans are saying, and what a lot of Colts fans are thinking and seeing here.....move along.
    • I am going to say all three. The first thing any team has to do is win and take care of their own division.
