    no offense to scott wright, but thats a putrid draft and i would **** a brick then go to winter park and cram that brick that i **** down childress throat, make him **** it out, beat him down with it, then cram it down speilmans throat, make him **** it out and beat him down with it.

    no way in HELL we pass on Adrian Peterson, you dont pass a talent like that to grab an overrated player at a NEED, no way we take Anderson over Peterson, Scott needs to check himself rather than hoping Peterson falls to Houston (he is a houston fan?)

    Gonzalez is a terrible pick, the Vikings currently have 3 slot WR's on their team, they dont need to waste a 2nd round pick on a player who wont even be able to break the #3 WR position, especially on a team that has no WRs. Gonzalez sucks, and hell be crap in the NFL, im not a big fan of Sidney Rice but i believe Scott has us passing on him for Gonzalez, Id take Rice or Hill or even Davis or Gonzalez who is a 5th or 6th round WR at BEST.

    Hughes would be a fine pick though, now that we didnt get Harper and we lost smoot, i like Devonte but hes nowhere near proven so you can rely on him just yet and no way to we want Whitaker at the nickel, so Hughes is easily our best pick in that putrid mock


    Wright is from Minnesota isnt he? does he have some sort of hatred towards minnesota or something becuase it shows in that piece of **** mock he just posted

      This years draft is obviously up in the air, and I hate the fact that we are picking in the top ten again! But unless our front office decides to improve this team we'll be there again next season. My draft board goes like this.. .Calvin Johnson, Joe Thomas, JaMarcus Russell, Brady Quinn, Gaines Adams, Adrian Peterson, LaRon Landry.

      One of those guys will be there at pick #7. I'd be thrilled to have ANYONE of those. Jamel Anderson is a solid DE prospect, but not what we need. Udeze has stunk, but still has the ABILITY to get it done but just hasnt. Ray Edwards played suprisingly well and will be able to step in in Erasmus goes down or Udeze stinks. So i dont see a hurry to drop another first rounder on a DE. I could however, see us drafting a DT. Because Big Pat is nearing the end of his career (maybe a year or two left) and it would be nice to grab someone like Branch or Okobi to step in as soon as Big Pat is done.

      oh dear lord... please do not blow this draft

        Scouts.inc was saying how Spielmen likes to trade during the draft thats what im most worried about having us trading back and drafting a WR like Ginn they had in the article. I like your Top 7 you have I'd take any of them as well but I really dont know if Russell would fit us but he is a top 5 pick. If we'd traded back i hope we draft Meachem or Bowe.



        Vikings | Yankees | Magic | Sabres | Chelsea FC | Alabama | St. Bonaventure

          actually dynasty, i think trading this year would be a great idea, which is why i like the fact that speilman is willing to trade picks....

          the only reason to trade up would be for calvin johnson, so if johnson does slip to #3, spielman might pull the trigger, which would be absolutly phenominal.

          trading down isnt a great idea either, but IMO if we trade down its to get Bowe, not Ginn...at least id hope....and if we trade down into the mid teens we would get another 2nd round pick, meaning we could even grab another WR in the 2nd day something like

          Bowe
          OG/DE
          Hill
          DE/OG

          I think trading this year is our best option honestly

            I wouldn't mind trading down..but ONLY if the top 4 or 5 guys are off the big board. [CJ, Adams, Thomas, Landry and Quinn]
            I think there are probably 3 teams that would be willing to "leapfrog" Houston to snab Peterson. If Those 4 are already off the board....we would be very wise to answer the phone. If possible to get a top tier
            WR a RT (Staley perhaps) and a DE for moving down would do more good than harm. However you can add as many mid tier guys up and they'll never equal a premeir talent ....so , I agree with those who beleive that who we draft in round 1 is vital to the next 3 years or more.

              i think you have to listen to phone calls even if peterson and quinn are still on the board, those are the two guys that teams are going to want to move up for, teams like Carolina or Jacksonville might be interested in Quinn and Buffalo or Denver might be interesting in Peterson.

              I would love to get another 2nd round pick, there is going to be so much talent in the 2nd round this year

              OG - Blalock and Grubbs
              DE - Alama-Francis, Abiamiri, Moss,
              WR - Jarrett (maybe), Rice, Hill, Davis,

              if peterson is off the board i trade down instantly for the best offer, it would be tougher if AP was available, he could be a game breaker, but we could maybe pull something off like our first and 4th for a teams whole first day so they can get AP...could happen

              again, all trades are unlikely, but its always fun to speculate

                To me the 2nd and 3rd round talents are going to be pretty similar.
                I don't see Grubbs making it out of the first round.
                Blalock/Moss/Jarrett/Rice will most likely be gone by our 2nd round pick and I don't see any of the teams that draft ahead of us being one of the teams that would trade up to get into our 7th spot...so to me, trading down for the sake of getting a 2nd 2nd or 3rd would be wasteful.

                If we got another 1st to go with it then sure, make it...but trading into the #7 slot shouldn't be bargain shopping either.
                I would just prefer to take the elite talent. You don't win S.B. with marginal players across the board. Eventually this team is going to have to get some star players for marketability as much as for giving us a better chance of winning.

                    sooo, you are saying you can only get star players in the top 10? the rediculous there are many star 2nd and 3rd round picks not to mention you can get quality starters in those rounds and most of the time a team is made up of a few stars and a lot of quality starters (new england only has a couple of stars, indy only has a couple of stars...hell their entire defense is made of quality starters...)

                    if we got another 2nd round pick and even a 3rd round pick and we ended up with 5 first day picks, id be all for that, we can get 5 top talent prospects with that at our area of need.

                      True it is POSSIBLE to snag a exellent player in the later rounds, however Minnesotas front office hasn't been able to do that. Which is why trading down scares me, we can get a solid player in the top 7 (as mentioned above) so i say we stay put and take a player that will be able to come in and contribute right away. Our defense has lost some players, but the players that we lost is almost an addition by subtraction. I was thrilled when we signed Smoot, but the douche bag hasn't done a damn thing, Nap Harris was another solid addition that did absolutely nothing. So basically we traded Moss for Williamson, great move Vikes..!

                      Quinn would be able to start right away, Peterson would be a fantastic change of pace from Chester, Landry would be able to step in and play along side Sharper as of day 1.

                      We have alot riding on this draft (just like every year) but if we have yet to improve this offseason, if the front office doesn't step up we are left with a mediocre team in an improving Division. Packers are looking solid, Detroit is making a lot of moves to improve, and the Bears are clearly the favorite.

                      I hate to say it, but as of now we are doing the least to improve... and if we dont do anything to improve it's gonna be a rough season.

                        Where exactly did I say you can't get "star" players in the top 10 ?
                        I've said over and over you take TALENT wherever it is you pick.

                        You use N.E. and Indy as your examples of "only a few stars" which is entirely false. in fact I'm pretty sure those 2 teams have had the MOST talent over the past 6 years than any other teams in the league. Because Patriot and Colt players (well, everyone other than Peyton Manning) aren't doing Chunky soup or Nike or NFL Network commercials doesn't mean they aren't "stars". In fact one could make the point that Stars don't even mean production.....or production that translates to success.
                        We don't need "stars" on the Vikes to be productive, we need TALENT.
                        If we trade down when there's clear talent where our slot is ....the Vikes WILL continue this spiral in mediocrity until someone in the front office figures it out and breaks the cycle by overstepping whoever makes the draft day calls and demands we take talent over need.

                        With Carr being traded to Houston...there's now ZERO chance they trade up. The first 8 picks will sort themselves out by draft day...and even then there could be a few deals done within to slide in and exchange spots.
                        Cleveland right now is being rumored to have serious interest in Quinn...which would mean that the 1st round could very well go like this
                        1-Russell, 2-Thomas (or IMO Anderson) 3-Quinn 4-Johnson 5-Adams 6-Carriker which would leave Landry / Peterson / Okoye as the next best talents on the board. If the team feels like Sharper has 3 good years left then we take Okoye. Or trade down (especially to N.E. and work out a deal for both of their 1st round picks and perhaps a high pick next year and a 4th this year) ... after those 7 are off the board the talent to me really levels off. The talent for the rest of the first round and even probably into the mid 2nd is the same. A group of really good , yet not great, players.

                        However you can't just plug in a good player and think you'll get " a top 5 player". And right now....we're not in a good position to get one of the best players from this draft...so instead of overpaying at 7 ..if those 6 are all off the board, then I pray we trade down and start filling holes and look to next years draft to take the "superstar".

                          Well the new mock isn't much different, has us taking Landry instead of Anderson. Which is a plus.

                          But looking through the rest of the mock makes me wonder what we'd do different if put in the same situations.

                          First of all in the second round it has us taking Gonzalez again, however it has Justin Blalock going two picks after us. IF Blalock fell to us, we'd Have to take him with the way Marcus Johnson and Artis Hicks have played. And in the third it has us taking Hughes again, which i wouldn't mind... but there are a few intriguing players still on the board.... one in particular i wouldn't mind picking up would be Michael Bush. ESPN just reported that he'll be undergoing surgery and will be out at least another two months, but i think he'd help take some weight off of Chester's shoulders if we were to draft him. He can catch out of the backfield and he is a terrific down hill runner, and we could surely use a goalline back

                            i agree tylere, completely agree

                            i would hope the vikes take Landry and blalock in the first and second rouns, i really dislike gonzalez, that dude is going to bust big time.

                            in the 3rd round though, scott has jason hill going one slot after us, we should take blalock with out 2nd round meaning wed need a WR so we cane take hill in the 3rd and i think hill is a late first early 2nd round talent

                              Landry, Blalock and Hill would be a very solid day 1 IMO.
                              However I'd still prefer to trade down and pick up a 2nd, 2nd rounder...(Jets / Tampa Bay / New England) or work out a deal for BOTH of N.E.'s 1st rounders (then take Griffin AND Bowe) but if that's not possible...then Landry is a solid choice.

                              If we ARE able to trade down and could pick up a 2nd 2, then we could grab a Bowe / Jarrett or Meachem in the 1st while still being able to grab Sid Rice or Aaron Sears (who'd make more sense because of his ability to play RT) , Tim Crowder , or Justin Blalock (any combination of those 2 would be outstanding) withour 2nd Then with our 3rd we could select between Brandon Mebane / Buster Davis or Joe Staley.
                              To me having 4 of these guys would help the team so much more than 3 will.

                                Scott's updated mock has us taking Landry, Gonzalez and Hughes. I like the first and third picks, but would rather have Sidney Rice over Anthony Gonzalez.
