Kwesi Adofo-Mensah’s first draft as Vikings general manager is being treated with mixed reviews.
Many are happy with the way he worked the board and addressed specific needs for the team. But some were turned off by the in-division trades and decision to pass on some of the marquee players in the draft.
Sure, there were some questionable trades in the beginning, but Adofo-Mensah did a great job of making up for those deals with solid draft selections.
He addressed the shoddy defensive backfield with multiple players, increased the offensive line depth, boosted the defensive front and added a few skilled position players. From that perspective alone, it’s safe to say it was a productive debut for a first-time GM.
