16. Minnesota Vikings

DT. Alabama. Raekwon Davis . 16. player. 60.

The Minnesota Vikings are a defensive football team. It’s going to always be that way under Mike Zimmer. No use expecting it to change. Given the uncertainty around the future of Everson Griffen, the defensive line may be a play they need to address. Raekwon Davis is a unique specimen. He’s big enough and long enough to play inside at defensive tackle. Yet his quickness and explosion would suggest he could also play defensive end if he wanted. He knows how to get to the quarterback and doesn’t shirk his run stopping duties. Typical of an Alabama kid.
