The Vikings drafted the first corner of the draft in Trae Waynes from Michigan State.
Waynes isn’t big but is fast with a 4.31 40-time and will play under defense-minded Mike Zimmer. He’ll be added to a good, young defense and should help the offense get more opportunities. For IDP purposes, he won’t be a big contributor.

Dynasty Impact: The Vikings trade up to get their quarterback in Bridgewater. On tape, Bridgewater looked like a top five pick but dropped thanks to a disastrous pro day. That didn’t deter the Vikings where he could step in and start immediately. With Adrian Peterson and Cordarrelle Patterson, he’ll have the tools to be the top quarterback taken in dynasty rookie drafts.
Dynasty Impact: Barr will, most likely, play end for Mike Zimmer in the Carlos Dunlap / Michael Johnson role. If he plays end, he has the capability to get to double-digit sacks but is still raw. Has incredible speed and height at 6′ 5″ but checks-in at only 255-pounds. Even as a lightweight, Barr can knock quarterbacks out and should be an explosive player with the right coaching. For IDP leagues, Barr will be in the mix for best end after Jadeveon Clowney and could rise to a DL1/2.
