    Rookie quarterbacks could make immediate impact

    http://www.nfl.com/draft/story;jsessionid=5E9BC270C83C526DD2174F4DC1E12884? id=09000d5d80805282&template=with-video&confirm=true

    The Minnesota Vikings traded with the St. Louis Rams to move to the second pick of the fifth round to select Booty. Tarvaras Jackson is shaky as the Vikings’ starter, and Booty just might be able to put a little bit of heat on him this summer.

    "(Watching videotape of Booty) you see him do so many things that we do in our offense," Vikings coach Brad Childress said. "You say, 'I wonder if he can make that kind of throw,' and there is that kind of throw. It's easy to factor him in. He looks like he has a good command of the game. There's always a learning curve, and that’s why (veteran) Gus Frerotte is here.

    "Obviously, John is going to get some snaps in the preseason and you'll have chance to evaluate him there."

    You'll see Frerotte get the nod before Booty ever would. No doubt about it, unless Frerotte is injured.

    I agree but I would rather see Booty get the nod.

    Agree.
    Next year, maybe.
    Not this year.

    I'm sure a lot of us would so we can see what we have in him, but realistically yea it won't happen.
    Frerotte is still more than capable to fill in when we need him however
