The Minnesota Vikings need a cornerback to play opposite of Xavier Rhodes, and cornerback Trae Waynes is the best cornerback available in the draft.

If Waynes is on the board for the Vikings, their decision will be easy. At Michigan St, Waynes played in 36 games in three seasons, and was very effective. In 2014, Waynes had his second straight three-interception season, and also totaled eight passes defended.

At the combine, Waynes impressed the scouts by running a 4.31 40-yard dash. One problem for Waynes in college was that he like to grab onto wide receivers. In the last two seasons, Waynes was penalized nine times, which is something that will have to be worked on.

Waynes looks to be a good fit in Mike Zimmer’s defense, and alongside Rhodes could be a good cornerback combo for the Vikings.

The Browns’ rushing defense struggled last season, and what better way to fix that than drafting a monster defensive tackle. Danny Shelton is 6’2” nearly 340lbs defensive tackle that should be an impact player right away in the NFL.

In his senior season at Washington, Shelton totaled a nine sacks, 93 tackles, and 16.5 tackles for loss. Shelton’s stats improved every year at Washington, and could be a dominating force in the middle in the NFL.

The Browns allowed the most rushing yards in the NFL last season. Drafting Shelton would help the Browns’ rushing defense begin to improve. For his size, Shelton was able to play a large number of plays for Washington, and that makes him an even better prospect for the Browns.
