Vikings land dynamic receiver in latest Draft Wire mock draft

The first group of scouting reports that I have been doing for the SKOL Search series has been on wide receivers. This class isn’t as top-heavy as the ones we have seen in previous seasons, but the depth through day two is excellent.

In his latest mock draft, Draft Wire’s Luke Easterling has the Minnesota Vikings selecting wide receiver Rashee Rice. Here is what Easterling had to say about Rice.

“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 agree completely, as Rice is currently my fifth-ranked receiver in the 2023 class. You can find my scouting report here. Needless to say, he would be a nice addition to the Vikings.
