Over at The Draft Network, they had this to say:They went on to call the Vikings’ pick of Bradbury one of the five best in the first round.Starting to get repetitive, but understandably so.Bradbury is the best zone blocking lineman in this year's draft, and that’s what the Vikings are going to do.Walt over at Walter football gave the pick a B+ as well:The one thing I remain skeptical about in several comments is Elflein at guard.I’d like to see competition there too.And a quality draft pick tomorrow and/or Saturday.And if it’s between Reiff and Elflein at left guard, I don’t see Elflein winning that competition.Chad Reuter at nfl.com gave the Vikings an “A’ for Day One of the draft:Overall pretty universal praise for the Vikings first pick of the 2019 Draft.
