EAGAN, Minnesota – The NFL 2019 surveillance cluster is just a few days away, which means that the spotlight will soon be on hundreds of potential college candidates.
The Combine is the first big event of the off season and will be followed by free competition and the draft NFL 2019, to be held at the end of April.
The Vikings currently have the No. 18 pick in the repechage after being led from 8 to 7-1 and missed the playoffs in 2018.
What will Minnesota do in 18th place? The experts weighed in.
This is our third installment of Mock Madness, which analyzes project analysts who expect the Vikings to choose their first-round pick in 2019.
This is the culmination of 15 recent predictions, with the majority of experts predicting that the Vikings would help their offensive line with a first-round pick at that location.

This is our third Mock Madness of 2019:
The choice of the first round planned: Jonah Williams, T / G, Alabama
Minnesota continues to be linked to offensive linemen in this project, while the signing of independent agent Kirk Cousins was under heavy pressure in 2018 behind a makeshift line. The team could take care of the free agency situation and still have a need. Williams, who has made 43 consecutive starts at the Crimson Tide tackle, could move inside to protect himself. At 6-foot-5, 301 pounds, he does not have the long arms that the NFL teams like for their left tackles, but he could be an elite guard.
