NFL Mock Draft Has Vikings Taking Washington OT Andre Dillard in Round One

The NFL Draft is still 66 days away, but already there’s plenty of mock drafts and projections as to what teams are going to do once Roger Goodell takes the platform in Nashville, Tennessee and gets booed as he does every year.

The Vikings are sitting at number 18 in the first round, and will look to improve the team to try and make a run at the NFC North Title in 2019.

As far as projections go, SB Nation today released their first Mock Draft for April’s big event, and they have the Vikings going offensive tackle in the first round, taking Andre Dillard from Washington State.

Here’s what SB Nation has to say about Dillard going to the Vikings:

Minnesota’s problems on the offensive line are well known. Left tackle Riley Reiff might move inside to guard, where Tom Compton is a free agent and Mike Remmers has underwhelmed (and has a contract that makes him easily expendable). If Reiff is shifted inside, left tackle obviously becomes Minnesota’s obvious need. Dillard is a smooth edge blocker who should have a nice week at the combine.
