Selection Comment - Pick #32

Return to Mock Draft

Lewis Cine



The Vikings traded down from #12 all the way to #32 with their division rival who took Jameson Williams. They got back #34 and #66 but had to give #46. The trade is universally disliked although some of the newer trade models consider it good value. It is difficult to see a drop down 20 spots in the first to move up 12 spots in the second round and picking up a high third as a good deal no matter what newer models claim. But Kwesi Adofo-Mensah has an analytics background and even though he tried to downplay it in his introductory news conference, he showed his true beliefs in this deal.

The team took safety Lewis Cine with the 32nd pick who was ranked 35th on the big board so not too much of a reach. Cine is 6'2" 202 with 32 1/2" arms. He ran a 4.37 forty had a 37" vertical and a 11'1" broad jump. He is a two year starter at Georgia playing free safety. He has good range with his speed and is a more than willing tackler. He is an excellent pick when you consider Harrison Smith is 32 years old and Camryn Bynum only has two starts under his belt.

Grade: C due to the trade value gained.
