Minnesota Vikings

Perfect draft pair: Florida S Marcus Maye (Round 2, pick 48); Pittsburgh G Dorian Johnson (Round 3, pick 79)

Jeremiah on Maye: I'm starting to hear some buzz about Maye moving up the board. He's a physical tone-setter in the secondary. I love the energy he brings to the field.

Brooks on Johnson: The Vikings still need a guard to shore up their offensive line. Johnson is a mauler who does a great job of moving people off the ball. The Vikings are at their best when they can run the ball when they want, and Johnson can help in that effort. He can also help keep Sam Bradford upright.
