2023 NFL draft: Vikings get physical cornerback in Kiper Jr. mock

The Minnesota Vikings have a lot of different needs that they could address, but the one that has continuously stood out is at cornerback. ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. agrees and sent the Vikings Penn State CB Joey Porter Jr.

If Minnesota can’t move up for Richardson or Levis in the teens — and if it doesn’t want to take quarterback Hendon Hooker (Tennessee) here — it should focus on the cornerbacks. Porter is physical and long, and he’ll create more turnovers at the next level than he did in college.

It’s not the sexiest pick in the world, especially with the need at cornerback, but it would be a massive improvement for the Vikings’ secondary. The son of Pittsburgh Steelers legend Joey Porter, he plays just like his dad: tough and physical. That is just what Brian Flores wants on the outside.
