    NFL Mock draft 1.0

    [size=14pt]Mock draft 1.0: Lions' glaring need at QB makes Stafford top pick[/size]

    They have us (Vikings) drafting wide receiver Jeremy Maclin from Missouri in the first round.
    I'm far from 100 % shure that wide receiver is our biggest need, but this guy is something special! I hope the Vikings draft him if he should somehowe still be there with our 22nd selection. I have read that many of you guys want another wide receiver named Percy Harvin (and that's not a bad pick either) but I think Maclin is better. In my opinion, they are vary similar. They both have blazing speed, knows how to make players miss, good vision, blocks downfield, not afraid to go over the middle, and they are pretty versatile.

    The things that makes my guy better is that he is bigger than Percy and might be even better in the return game. Plus, he can return both punts and kicks. In just two years of playing in college, he made three touchdowns on punts and two on kickoffs. He also set a NCAA Fresman record by running, catching, and returning for 2,776 all-purpose yards. These stats don't lie my friend!

    that'd be great if he were still gonna be there... i don't think he gets out of the top 15, maybe even top 10...

    i'd rather have Hakeem Nicks over Harvin.. but Harvin wouldn't be a bad choice!

    Hakeem Nicks is good too. I don't know much about him though, but this catch is pretty sweet:

    I think you are on the right track with Maclin.
    He could very well be the first WR off the board.
    From what I hear, Crabtree won't run at the combine which could knock his stock down.

    I think it's a good chance that he'll be drafted in the top 15, but you never knows, Remember that Brady Quinn was a lock in the top 10, but he fell all the way to... ironically... 22

    Everyone here would be ecstatic with Maclin.

    Hard to see him there at 22 though. That draft has a ridiculous amount of DL/OL/LB/DB going early.

    Thanks Josdin!

    Re: NFL Mock draft 1.0

    I voted yes.
    Only for the fact that if he is there at 22, there is no doubt he would be BPA.
    I have a feeling that some very good talent will slip to us.
    I just hope that we make a pick that can make an impact.

    I don't want a WR in the first. I want oline or linebacker.
    We're bringing purple back.
