Kwity Paye NFL Draft photo
After the season ended, Mike Zimmer said "a priority for me is that we continue to get more pass rushers". Danielle Hunter is returning from surgery and Ifeadi Odenigbo, a restricted free agent, is probably better as a rotational end.

Kwity Paye is 6'4" 277 and ran a 4.57 forty and did a ridiculous 6.37 on the 3-cone drill last year. While the skills that make Paye a high-level pass rusher are highly touted, he may be even more impressive as a run defender which is the first priority for Mike Zimmer's ends.

VIKINGS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
