Default What would you give up for CJ?

What would you give up to get Calvin Johnson, assuming we'd have to move up a few spots to grab him?

that way we can still nab a first day offensive lineman and grab some depth players (WR/DE/FS/TE) on the 2nd day, its so perfect, it probably wont happen, lol

Calvin Johnson is a once in a decade type of receiver and i think we should do all we can do to try to get him. i'd go with our first second and another late round pick or maybe a future 3rd or fourth. I hope we make some kind of move because I'm not huge on Jarrett, just reminds me too much of Mike Williams.

With the way we've drafted over the past years, what makes you think that we'd be able to get three starters out of the picks?

If Tice were still here...I would agree...but we got Griffin / Edwards and Blue last year all 3 played and played well. Greenway has a chance to make last years draft classes one of the best of the last decade.
Especially if Jackson and Cook live up to thier draft pick (I wouldn't hold my breath..but hey)
...Your post actually agrees more with me...I mean wouldn't we have more chances of hitting a good player with more picks ? What are the chances we go 1 for 1 anyways ... a billion to 1 ?

I'd give up a single additional pick, i.e. a 2nd or 3rd rounder. Definitely not more because we have tons of holes and need as many draft picks as possible.

But CJ is a freak. I cannot believe he is 6'5 229 pounds and can run a 4.35 forty and jump a 45-inch vertical in somebody elses shoes. He and Randy Moss might be the best athletes at WR in draft histoy. Might as well make it 2 for 2.

We should definitely go after defensive players in FA, so we can go after Calvin. You can still get starters in the second day. It's not like we would be trading our first whole day either. Like I said, I wouldn't trade for C.J. if we had to give up three of our first day picks from this year's draft.

True I would like the vikings to go after Kerney if his Price Tag isnt to high then try and get Calvin. We get a proven DE and the top prospect of the draft.

very good points guys, we do have some holes to fill but majority of them, if anything are depth and youth reasons which we can easily address second day

TE and DE are easily obtainable in FA (Graham will be cheap and like dynasty said if Kerneys price isnt too high, we can grab him)

trade a first, second, and 3rd (one from next season) grab oline with the other first day pick and go BPA the rest of the way...

i like how you guys think, hahaha...we can only dream though :)

It just depends on the team. For some teams I'd give up the whole draft as I think getting one elite player like him is better than a bunch of mediocres. While there are never for sure bets (Ricky Williams) I just have a very hard time seeing Johnson not at least being a pro-bowl type player.

For the Vikings, however, there are just too many holes and too many bad drafts in the past where they can gamble it all on one player.

They need to start building their infrastructure, particularly in terms of youth, because right now it's pretty weak.
