Draft Wire mock sends Vikings SMU WR Rashee Rice

Cornerbacks are on the rage for the Minnesota Vikings in mock drafts. Analysts have sent five of them so far to the Vikings and I wouldn’t expect it to stop anytime soon.

In the meantime, cornerback isn’t the only position that the Vikings need, as I believe that wide receiver is the top position of need.

In the latest mock draft from Draft Wire, Luke Easterling believes the same, as he sent the Vikings SMU WR Rashee Rice. Here is what Easterling had to say about the Mustang speedster.

“Adam Thielen isn’t getting any younger, and the Vikings should find a younger understudy to eventually take over as Justin Jefferson’s running mate at receiver. Rice has the size/speed combo that would make him a perfect complement to Jefferson.”

I am a huge fan of Rice, as he currently ranks as my WR5 in this class and you can read all about him in my scouting report. If he were to end up with the Vikings, it would be a great get.
