CB Joey Porter Jr. goes to Vikings in latest mock draft from Yahoo Sports
With defensive coordinator Brian Flores in place, the Minnesota Vikings are likely to reshape the cornerback room in his image.
A major part of that image is physical cornerbacks who thrive playing in man coverage. Charles McDonald of Yahoo Sports believes the Vikings will go that direction as he has them selecting Penn State cornerback Joey Porter Jr.
New defensive coordinator Brian Flores needs more athleticism at cornerback than he currently has with the Vikings setup. Joey Porter Jr. can fix that.
The best way to describe Porter is to compare him directly to his father, who played linebacker for the Steelers: a physical monster. He knows how to play physical at the line of scrimmage and can stick with receivers. When he does get beaten, his length helps him attack the ball.
