Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft: 7-Round Predictions, Post-Scouting Combine

The end of the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine brings with it another round of draft projections and prospect rankings; the Minnesota Vikings are no different than any other team in having tweaked their rankings in response. Similarly, mock projections for how the Vikings will pick need to change with this new information.

You may have heard that the combine is overrated or that most teams have their positional boards filled out before having their executives take the first step into Indianapolis, but former scouts disagree. It can be useful for finding red flags or encouraging teams to look back at the tape.

That said, the marquee event, the 40-yard dash, may have received too much attention. The key is finding balance between the raw data the combine produces and the effort seen on film. The tape will always be the final word on a prospect, but having a great equalizer like the combine can put context to evaluations.

There are risers and fallers with every pre-draft event, and the combine is no different. How has that affected Minnesota's potential draft plans?


All combine scores come from Steelers Depot when available, or Real Sports Hype when not available at Steelers Depot.
