Tanner McKee NFL Draft photo
The Vikings season started very well with a very good win against the Packers. This caused the fanbase and some media types to get excited about the team's chances to really compete this year. The Purple Kool-Aid was very tasty after that win. But...that all went south in a hurry against the Eagles who really handled the Vikings.

Some would argue the loss was self-inflicted but when your high paid veteran Quarterback throws three interceptions, two of which were really awful decisions, the first week excitement got squashed completely. There are a lot of things to worry about and the QB position could be moving up the list quickly especially considering the cap hit and that Kirk Cousins has only one year left on his deal.

Tanner McKee is an older player after going on a two-year LDS mission in Brazil before arriving at Stanford. He is 6-foot-6 and 226 pounds and has a huge arm. PFF's Michael Renner even went as far to rank him as the No. 1 prospect in all of the Pac-12 regardless of position ahead of players like USC receiver Jordan Addison and Oregon linebacker Noah Sewell. He could be a sneaky good pick for the new regime in Minnesota to make next year and they would have the luxury of allowing him to sit for a year while Cousins plays out his deal.

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.
