    I would still like to get Setterstrom or Eslinger. Last I checked they are out there still. I think we could afford to get rid of McKinnie next year if we got one of those guys to come in along with Cook and the young guys we got to compete against each other this year.

    Yes, I just checked it against the Vikings.com Roster and Newman is not on there anymore. It might be safe to cross reference this roster.

    There are a few guys not on my original list, like Bubin (OT) that are on the Vikings.com Roster.

    Re: Depth Chart - Post First Round

    Major changes

    The Team has addressed our needs in FA and the Draft so far.

    We are adding depth at DB and OL
    We are getting competition to find the right LBs to fit our new system.
    We have 3 QBs to learn behind BJ, one of them will be able to step it up in the future, got to be one of them that can be as good as a Hasselbeck.
    We addressed our RB needs in FA. With a good line, Taylor or Moore can be 1200-1400 yard rushers assuming one becomes the featured back.
    We are definitely going to have a good competition for the right side of the O-line.

    We'll just have to wait and see at training camp but you would have to say that the lines are looking very, very good. McKinnie, Hutchinson and Birk on the O and James, Pat, Kevin and Udeze on the D.

    Don't forget that we added Ray Edwards at DE.

    I really think that we are concerned about Udeze's health and long term availability. I know there are a lot of people that don't want to hear about that, but it is true. College injury, and a Pro injury and he hasn't been on the field as much as we would have liked him to be. ????Bust???? What he does this year will probably determine his future. He has to kick some ass this year and stay healthy.

    Rosenthaul---RT (for now)
    Marcus Johnson--RG

    Matt Birk--- C (stays healthy)
    Steve Hutchinson--- LG
    Bryant McKinnie--- LT
    ..............

    Chad Greenway--- LOLB
    E.J. Henderson--- MLB
    Dontarious Thomas--- ROLB (starter right now)
    Ben Leber--- ROLB (its a toss up for me, i need to see them play)
    ............

    Notes: Ryan Cook could become the starting right tackle if Rosenthaul
    doesn't improve.


    Tarvaris could become the backup QB, but for now i see him at
    3rd string.

    Cedric Griffin is a good, young (duh) player who could take
    Smoots spot if he can't improve!!!

    With Offords offseason problems, Tank Williams gets the initial
    start, but Willie could take it back of Tank doesn't show promise.

    I think for a while the RB will be a committee mostly by Moore and
    Taylor, both are good and have much promise, Taylor will get the
    start.

    I know its a lot, but it is just my opinion, I will probably get people wondering about my LB choices but, oh well!!! :grin:
    I am not sure about Rosenthal. Hopefully he comes back with a new found enthusiasm for the game, a fresh attitude and the understanding that he better work his butt off. It seems to me that Childress is telling Rosie, Lewienski, Goldberg, and Herrera that "you guys will have to prove yourselves to me or you are gone. Tice might have put up with you guys, but I have brought in guys from the NFC East, that I have seen play more often than you guys and they are just as good or better than you, so show me what you got. BTW, we drafted a versatile OL (Cook) to compete for your job also."

    Offensive Line?
    Matt Birk - Starter
    S. Hutchinson - Starter
    B. McKinnie - Starter (I don't think he is untouchable)
    M. Johnson (is he really playing at an NFL level?)
    M. Rosenthal (is he really playing at an NFL level?)
    A. Goldberg (has Starts w/Vikes mainly due to injuries to others)
    Jason Whittle(has Starts w/Giants due to injuries to others)
    Ryan Cook
    A. Herrera (has Starts w/Vikes mainly due to injuries to others)
    C. Liwienski (has Starts w/Vikes mainly due to injuries to others)
    A. Hicks (has Starts w/Eagles due to injuries to others)
    Sean Bubin (from what I could tell, he played one game for Det, that's it)

    As far as the LBs, I say Leber plays for what we are paying him. I hope that Napo turns out better in this new system. I think this is a big Question Mark. I don't think the coaching staff has a preset notion (set in stone) of who will be starting. Atleast I hope they are going into this with a totally open mind. It isn't like the news guys are coming in at a Disadvantage and the team vets are coming in with the Advantage, they are all coming in learning a new system. It is a level playing field. Let the best players play.

    Re: Depth Chart - Post First Round

    Artus Hicks it the new starting right guard. Childress said that immediately after the trade. I also wouldn't be surprised to see them try to move Cook to the right tackle. At 6'7 I think he might be a little big to play center (and Birk is starting anyway) especially in the future when our starting quarterback (if Tavaris pans out) is 6'1 and not 6'5 like Brad, but he definately has the size to play tackle. It's also not as big of a deal starting a rookie at RT as it is LT because it's not on Brad's blindside.

    RT- Cook? Rosenthal?
    RG- Artus Hicks
    C- Matt Birk
    LG- Hutchinson
    LT- McKinnie

    Cook has barely played any tackle in his life. I don't think you can make him a starter based on being 6'7". Marcus Johnson started at RT last year for the Vikes. He has to be the favorite to do so this year.

    RT - M. Johnson
    RG - Hicks
    C - Birk
    LG - Hutchinson
    LT - McKinnie

    Backups -
    T - Rosenthal
    G - Goldberg, Cook
    C - Cook

    How many linemen do they suit up for a Sunday...8? 9?

    If it's 9, you probably put Liwienski in there.
