Hernandez is huge but apparently a pretty agile guy. Can't say the same for Brown. He might not be a great fit in the Vikings zone blocking scheme.

Obviously this is just a silly simulation, but its more accurate than it would have been yesterday with the first 32 players accurately slotted for how they were picked. The guard depth would be completely obliterated if it goes down like this in round 2.

The top remaining players on the board look like this.
48 WR CHRISTIAN KIRK - TEXAS A&M
50 WR D.J. CHARK - LSU
55 WR JAMES WASHINGTON - OKLAHOMA STATE
57 RB KERRYON JOHNSON - AUBURN
58 CB M.J. STEWART - NORTH CAROLINA
62 RB NICK CHUBB - GEORGIA
63 EDGE LORENZO CARTER - GEORGIA
64 DL RASHEEM GREEN - USC
65 WR ANTHONY MILLER - MEMPHIS
66 S JESSIE BATES III - WAKE FOREST
67 OT JAMARCO JONES - OHIO STATE
71 TE MARK ANDREWS - OKLAHOMA
72 S MARCUS ALLEN - PENN STATE
73 DL TIM SETTLE - VIRGINIA TECH
74 DL DERRICK NNADI - FLORIDA STATE
75 OT ORLANDO BROWN - OKLAHOMA
76 DL ANDREW BROWN - VIRGINIA
78 EDGE TYQUAN LEWIS - OHIO STATE
79 DL DA'SHAWN HAND - ALABAMA
80 WR DEON CAIN - CLEMSON
81 DL TRENTON THOMPSON - GEORGIA
82 C MASON COLE - MICHIGAN
83 CB DONTE JACKSON - LSU
84 S ARMANI WATTS - TEXAS A&M
85 CB ANTHONY AVERETT - ALABAMA
86 OT CHUKWUMA OKORAFOR - WESTERN MICHIGAN
87 EDGE ARDEN KEY - LSU
88 QB KYLE LAULETTA - RICHMOND
89 LB JEROME BAKER - OHIO STATE
90 EDGE CHAD THOMAS - MIAMI
91 WR DANTE PETTIS - WASHINGTON
92 EDGE DUKE EJIOFOR - WAKE FOREST
93 CB RASHAAN GAULDEN - TENNESSEE
94 CB QUENTON MEEKS - STANFORD
95 DL NATHAN SHEPHERD - FORT HAYS STATE
96 WR DEONTAY BURNETT - USC
97 RB MARK WALTON - MIAMI
98 DL R.J. MCINTOSH - MIAMI
99 RB JOHN KELLY - TENNESSEE
Lorenzo Carter might be your best upside at that point. Thoughts?

While it leaves a big ? at OL, I'd take day 2, and 3 that look something like this.

30: R1P30
CB MIKE HUGHES
UCF

62: R2P30
OT BRIAN O'NEILL
PITTSBURGH

94: R3P30
DL NATHAN SHEPHERD
FORT HAYS STATE

167: R5P30
DL DEADRIN SENAT
SOUTH FLORIDA

204: R6P30
LB TEGRAY SCALES
INDIANA

213: R6P39
RB AKRUM WADLEY
IOWA

218: R6P44
CB BRANDON FACYSON
VIRGINIA TECH

225: R7P7
TE CHRIS HERNDON
MIAMI

O'neil has upside, and you are drafting for him upside, and that makes me nervous given the need, but I think he could be a good player in due course.

Shepherd and Senat provide both really solid depth and good potential. We get some rotation and competition on the interior along with Jaleel Johnson.

Scales can compete with Ben Gideon and be an immediate special teams asset.

Wadley can produce some mismatches and give us a shifty receiving RB we don't have in Latavius Murray.

Facyson has great size and solid straight line speed. I'd like to see what Zimmer could do with him.

Herndon is a raw TE project. We seem to draft one every year. Maybe this year with DeFilippo we actually hit on one.
