Vikings Picks in Hanson's 2021 NFL Mock
14. Jaelan Phillips, EDGE, Miami (FL)
In the previous iteration of this mock, Virginia Tech offensive tackle Christian Darrisaw was the pick. With the Vikings cutting Riley Reiff in a move to clear cap space, Darrisaw remains a possibility here.
Trading for Yannick Ngakoue before the 2020 season, the Vikings should have had a dynamic 1-2 pass-rush duo with Danielle Hunter and Ngakoue. Not only did Hunter miss all of 2020, but the Vikings traded away Ngakoue only six games into his Minnesota tenure. Even so, the short-term Viking still led the team with five sacks.
The nation's former top high school recruit, Phillips had eight sacks and 15.5 tackles for loss over 10 games in his only season with the Hurricanes after unretiring from football and transferring from UCLA.

Vikings Picks in Donahue's 2021 NFL Mock
14. Alijah Vera-Tucker, IOL, USC
My guess is the Vikings are hoping Slater falls to them as they too have needs at both tackle and guard but since the Chargers snatch him up the pick before they go with the next best tackle/guard combo in the draft. Listed at the same exact size as Slater, Vera-Tucker would probably be best utilized at guard but he offers insurance in case the Vikings aren't able to replace Riley Reiff, who the team recently cut due to cap concerns.
