Most had Andrew Booth Jr pegged as a first round pick.
However, the former Clemson corner, for whatever reason, saw his stock drop heading into the draft before eventually going to Minnesota in the second round with the No. 42 pick overall.
Luke Easterling of Draft Wire thinks the Vikings may have gotten the steal of the draft in the former Clemson cornerback.
Another corner show could have easily gone in the first round, Booth might be the most pro-ready prospect in this year’s loaded class at the position. An injury kept him out of predraft workouts, and likely contributed to his tumble down the draft board, but the Vikings were wise to stop his fall.
Booth was one of the nation’s best corners last year, especially in press-man situations, and that should continue at the next level. If he’s able to return to full strength, Minnesota could end up with one of the biggest bargains of the entire draft, with a shutdown corner who landed outside the top 40 selections.
