New prospect mocked to Vikings in latest CBS Sports Mock Draft

As free agency and the NFL draft approaches, it remains unclear which route the Minnesota Vikings will take with their first pick. In fact, the Vikings have been mocked 73 different players through the first four weeks of 2023.

On Wednesday, Chris Trapasso from CBS Sports tried to pinpoint a position the Vikings could look at in his latest mock draft by having them select Pittsburgh defensive lineman Calijah Kancey.

“Kancey’s a smaller defensive tackle, but has major juice and a developed set of pass-rush moves. He’s the type Minnesota needs on the interior.”

The Vikings currently have a need on the defensive line since Dalvin Tomlinson and Jonathan Bullard are slated to become free agents unless the two sides can reach an agreement. While Kancey is a bit smaller than Tomlinson, he’d fill a need along the defensive line. It’s not a sexy pick, but with many holes on the roster, the Vikings may not have much of a choice.
