Minnesota Vikings 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 6.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Minnesota Vikings from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Vikings:

EDSFootball - Hanson (3/5)

14. Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech

In all previous iterations of our mock, we've slotted an edge rusher for the Vikings and that still remains a strong possibility. Especially if the Vikings move on from Riley Reiff to create cap space, Darrisaw would make sense here as well. A three-year starter, Darrisaw has continued to improve each season. His athleticism and length will allow him to handle NFL-caliber edge rushers and he's been dominant as a run blocker as well.

ESPN - McShay (3/4)

14. Kwity Paye, EDGE, Michigan

It has been nearly a decade since the last time that the first 13 teams all passed on pass-rushers (Seattle took Bruce Irvin at No. 15 in 2012). But the Vikings are seeking more impact players on the edge, and while Paye hasn't necessarily piled on production stats at Michigan (8.5 sacks over his past 16 games), he can slip blocks and has some power. Minnesota's 23 sacks were the NFL's fifth fewest last season.

Courtney Cronin on his fit with the Vikings: Paye could slide in immediately opposite Danielle Hunter at defensive end. If Minnesota doesn't want to rely solely on the Michigan rookie, it could use a combination of D.J. Wonnum -- who proved to be one of the Vikings' best Day 3 picks from 2020 -- and Paye at right defensive end, which would allow for Ifeadi Odenigbo to return to the rotational role where he thrived two seasons ago.

Here is where the Minnesota Vikings rank in terms of average, best and worst in our consensus Week 17 NFL Power Rankings:

Below you will find a Week 17 roundup for the Vikings in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 16

Anthony Harris, S: The franchise tag did him no favors. Harris was a free agent last offseason, but the Vikings tagged him and he hasn't played as well. Now, at 29, he'll enter free agency a year older. Harris is at his best when he can be a ball-hawking free safety.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 20

The defense is putrid, which has to anger Mike Zimmer, who made his bones as a defensive coach. That showing at New Orleans was embarrassing.
