Vikings will consider starting Trae Waynes with Xavier Rhodes
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

When the Vikings selected Trae Waynes in the first round of the draft on Thursday, it was the second time in three years they've used a first-round pick on a corner.

The Vikings selected Xavier Rhodes in 2013, and it's only natural to consider pairing the two DBs. 

"To get two young corners like that and you watch Chicago take the receiver from West Virginia, knowing the receivers that we face in Green Bay and knowing the receivers we face in Detroit," GM Rick Spielman said, per Vikings.com. "To have to young corners that I know this staff has done a tremendous job of helping our young guys. To get another young player on that side of the ball, especially a player at a position that is in Coach Zimmer’s wheelhouse. We are going to have to play some good defense and we were able to really improve last year, and I think adding a player like a Trae Waynes will definitely upgrade our defense."

That doesn't mean Waynes is guaranteed a starting spot. " I know we signed Terence Newman, and we have Captain Munnerlyn. We have Josh Robinson," Spielman said. "We have a lot of depth at corner right now. Corners take some time to develop, he is not going to be pushed into starting right away, that will be determined as we go through this offseason program, as we go through training camp, how quickly he comes along, but we also have the luxury with the depth that we have at the cornerback position and if he is ready, the coaches will determine when he is ready."

Coach Mike Zimmer was more aggressive. "I anticipate everybody to compete for a starting job," he said.
