2018 NFL Mock Draft: Minnesota Vikings Select OT Mike McGlinchey at No. 30

Minnesota takes the guy who many believe could be the best offensive tackle in the draft.

NFL: Combine Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

With the 30th pick of the 2018 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the Minnesota Vikings select...

Mike McGlinchey, LB, Alabama

The selection and write-up were made by xfl2001fan:

Nearly 4 out of 5 mock drafts have the Vikings taking an offensive lineman (of some type). This isn’t an accident. As things have worked out in this draft, they might have just received the best OT at this spot. At 6’7” and 309lbs, he’s a solid pass protector with quick feet, good length and is strong enough to handle most players bull-rushes. The better speed rushers can give him fits (but the better speed rushers give many guys fits). He has 3 seasons as a starter for the Golden Domers, so he’s coming with a lot of experience. He’s also pretty solid as a run blocker. The tape vs Bradley Chubb (considered to be a Top 5 pick) was very promising. Football runs through his veins as his cousin is Matt Ryan and he’s had a pretty solid career (except that one time...against the Superbowl).

Pokorny: “There is a chance that McGlinchey is the best offensive tackle in the draft, so for him to fall to No. 30 would make the Vikings feel really good about this pick.”

The New England Patriots are up next, led by Matt Wood.
