    Re: NFL Mock draft 1.0

    That would be awesome if we got Maclin.
    It would definitely be a best case scenario.

    That is called drafting for need. TWill style.

    That mock has 4 OL and 5 LB off the board before 22. I'll take the 2nd best WR over the 5th best OL anyday.
    +1, BPA will be a WR or CB.

    I voted no, want them to take someone else.
    Funny thing, I worked up 4 mock drafts yesterday and in two of them the top 5 WR's go the following way:

    1.
    Michael Crabtree, WR - No way Seattle doesn't go with him, even after the fracture issue came to light.
    2.
    Jeremy Maclin, WR - Buffalo has alot of needs, but this is one of thier biggest.
    If they go with a kid like Brian Orakpo, DE or Everette Brown, DE/OLB then I could see one of the top 4 WR's available for us.
    3.
    Percy Harvin, WR - Jets.
    Actually had him going to a couple of other teams but this one kindof makes sense as well.
    No QB worth a pick here, (to high for Freeman), Chris Wells, RB or one of the DE's (Tyson Jackson, DE) could also be an option.
    Again, the slide continues on WR's.

    Under that scenario, Hakeem Nicks would be available.
    Problem for me still resides around what else is available and what our staff will think is a better pick.

    Sure the WR is the "Sexy" pick, however, the following cats are available as well that make more sense....

    Josh Freeman, QB
    DJ Moore, CB
    Alphonso Smith, CB
    Peria Jerry, DT
    Alex Mack, C or Max Unger C

    ......At least more sense to me than a WR at this point.

    :






    Out of your five noted (that make more sense), I'll take CB, Alphonso Smith, athankyou.
    Playmaker with heart, good kid.
    Not afraid to mix it up in the run game.
    Don't let his height fool you, yes, he would have trouble with RoboWR (Calvin Johnson), but, everyone does.

    Now, as it relates to Maclin...I completely concur with John Gruden's assessment.
    This kid will be one helluva pro football player.
    He noted yards rushing, receiving, and returning.
    As a 'Husker fan, I can attest to this kid's impact.
    Maclin tore up the Big 12, as did many offensive players, but, I think he is gonna be a special player...just has a knack for the big play at the right time.
    First downs, yards after catch, great returner, if he's available, and I HIGHLY doubt he will be, you take him.

    As it relates to Crabtree...I agree Marr, no way he goes past the SeaBags.


    Also, did you hear Spielman on Sirius NFL Radio with Gil Brandt?
    The Vikes use the same "system" that Brandt did to draft players.
    Spielman stated that they have 3 players rated at each position for each of their spots.
    They stay within those three players for each of their draft picks.
    If it fills a need, great, if not, they are going with the player they think is best, regardless of position.
    I missed that, however I have heard Gil say that before.

    As to CB, I am awfully worried about my boy Chuck.
    That break sure looked nasty.
    My guess is he won't be back next year creating a opening on the roster.
    Hearing rumors on Sirius and scout etc that they are looking to fill that with a Vet.
    Still doesn't mean they won't take a CB with the first pick, however, I doubt it.

    For me it comes down to 4 positions, pending FA....

    a.
    DT - Almost convinced that if Peria is there he is our man.
    b.
    C - Unger is a interesting prospect.
    Plays 4 positions.
    Would be hard to pass up unless they bring in a Vet C and RT.
    c.
    QB - Not sure if Freeman is worth it at 22 but he will be there.
    6'6" beast with a cannon for a arm and can pass iwth touch.
    Depending on his workouts, he could be a suprise there.
    d.
    S - Hearing they are targeting Jermaine
    Phillips there but that doesn't make much sense.
    7 year vet is kindof out of thier norm as well as the money they paid M-will.
    Regardless, I don't see any S's (as of yet) that warrant a first round pick at this point.
    Watching William Moore to see if he climbs the boards but lots of value in the 3rd/4th to get help here.

    We do NOT want Freeman.
    TJack is a better quarterback and takes better care of the ball.


    My top three quarterbacks would be:
    Stafford, Sanchez, Davis

    I'm actually pretty high on Davis.
    He's got a strong arm and plays "scrappy".
    Laugh it up, but I feel the same way about Davis as I did about Cutler.

    I was kindof high on White but have since cooled on him a bit. Davis is another interesting option.
    Just don't see us going after him with our first or second though.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
