3. Andrew Booth, Minnesota Vikings

Booth would be a dictionary definition of a buy-low. His rookie season in 2022, after the Vikings took him in the second round, was limited by injuries and he only played six games. He suited up for all 17 games last year, but he played a total of 272 snaps (151 defensive snaps, 121 special teams snaps). In that small sample last season, his Pro Football Focus coverage grade was solid (69.1; would've been top-50 among cornerbacks if he had enough snaps to qualify).

The Vikings could certainly use a little cornerback help, but the recent signing of Shaquill Griffin bumps Booth down the depth chart more than he already is. If a cornerback is drafted next month, Booth has virtually no path to playing time.

Booth ostensibly still has the talent that had him as a potential first-round pick coming out of Clemson two years ago. And it's getting to the point he won't have the opportunity to possibly realize that potential in Minnesota. A conditional seventh-round pick (and a bag of deflated? footballs), might get the job done to take a complete flier on 23-year old cornerback. If nothing else, Booth pretty clearly needs a change of scenery.
