I wish I knew someone in the business of making JERSEY Nameplates!I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.

I say we draft Keenan Allen with the 23rd pick, then trade down with our second first rounder.. acquire more picks.. then draft Justin Hunter in the 2nd with our high second round pck.

Very happy about this. Harvin is a f'n headcase, and doesn't deserve to be here. The guy is one hell of a player when he is in the right frame of mind, but that is asking a lot of Percival Harvin.
To get the Seahawks 1st rd pick and 7th rd pick this year, and a mid round pick next year was simply genius on Spielman's part. I was holding out hope for a 1st rd pick, but thought they would get 1 2nd rd pick at the most because of the circumstances. Never thought they would get multiple picks that included a 1st this year.
We all know it will be just a matter of time before Harvin complains about something in Seattle. That is his type, never happy and needs to bitch about something. Apparently it won't be his pay because I guess they are already talking about a new deal, but it will be something along the lines of not getting enough touches, or the staff not stroking his enormous ego enough.
I cannot, and will not speak for the rest of you here, but I am extremely happy that Harvin is gone and that the Vikings got a nice return for him. We are essentially getting a better return for Harvin then we did for Moss, which is awesome. Good riddance Harvin, now you are Pete Carroll's migraine (pun intended) and their fans will see the flashes of the great player you can be, but the diva that we all know you are. See ya.

I've read a few mocks that have Keenan Allen and Cordarrelle Patterson taken before we draft at #23, so I'm wondering if we're going to have to trade up to take one of these guys? Hopefully not but at least we now have some leeway if we feel like one of the guys we covet at WR might be taken by other receiver-needy teems that pick before us (i.e. Buffalo, Miami and St. Louis).
One guy I like that should be there at #23 if Patterson and Allen are gone is Justin Hunter. He has the height and speed to be a deep threat that we haven't had in a while. That leaves us to take Sylvester Williams or Kawann Short at #25 and get us another run-stuffing DT. The possibilities for what we can do now are nearly limitless and puts us in the driver's seat now to get some good playmakers.

Allen or Patterson would be a good fit. I haven't really seen much on Hunter. I agree, the options are limitless now, and the Vikings should have another great draft.

Pick #23 has to be a WR as pick 24 is the Rams.
I would love to see us draft Hunter at 23... trade down to allow some one in the early 2nd to come in and give up a 4th or 3rd to us. Draft one of the 4 Dts left (Missouri, Ohio State, Jesse Williams) and then select Woods in the 2nd.

I was very firm in the don't part with Percy camp because I did not think we would get anywhere near fair market value.
This is about as good as we could hope for. If the 2014 pick is a 4th rounder it is golden. I like having back-to-back drafts with two first round picks. Means we should have at least four solid, young starters in the fold.
I would not hate to see us go WR, WR with the two picks. Especially if we do not get one in free agency. But, in the end, this gives us a lot of draft-day flexibility and gets about as much as we could for a guy who did not want to be here.

I think Harvin is going to be a great fit in seattle, he'll make many pro-bowls, and probably set a few records. I think he's as talented as any player in the NFL, and I wish him well.
That said he was causing a lot of drama, and would have put a big dent in the salary cap had we resigned him. Hopefully they take the money they saved and make a big splash by grabbing Wallace, and get 2 starters in the first round of the draft.

I hope we face the Seahawks in the playoffs this year and destroy them.
Take that Harvin!
When are you going to realize that picking out the 20 bad throws this year and ignoring the 300 good ones does not make your point?
