2019 NFL Mock Draft 2.0: Garrett Bradbury intriguing option for Los Angeles Rams

18. Minnesota Vikings: Ole Miss Offensive Lineman Greg Little
The Minnesota Vikings felt confident enough in Kirk Cousins being an upgrade at quarterback over Case Keenum after reaching the NFC Championship during the 2017 season. And while Cousins still seems like the better option at the moment, the debate over whether the Vikings overpaid for the quarterback is a different story.
Minnesota was viewed as one of the biggest winners from last offseason after convincing Cousins to come on board, but seeing how the Vikings couldn’t even earn a playoff spot shows how disappointing 2018 really was.
More than ever, the Vikings will be facing heavy pressure to make sure they finish as a top contender next season, and since Cousins has plenty of great weapons to work with on offense, the offensive line could still use some improvement.
Protecting Cousins with all of that guaranteed money is always going to be a top priority for Minnesota, and Greg Little didn’t necessarily perform as well as he would have preferred to at the combine, but the potential is certainly still there.
Even if the Vikings needed to spend a little extra time helping Little adjust to the NFL, this could still be worth the selection in the long run since Minnesota will need all of the extra help possible in what has become a very tough NFC North after last season.
