MIN: Trae Waynes Quick Recap


Ohhh baby, Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer just grabbed his most versatile toy in quite some time with the selection of cornerback Trae Waynes.

Waynes is an incredibly versatile corner who has the ability to play man to man or zone coverage. Waynes’ smooth speed translates incredibly well to the NFL. On a defense that went from 30th in points allowed in 2013 to 11th in 2014 under Zimmer, the addition of Waynes will see that success continue.

Instant Grade: A+
