The Vikings will have a top three pick again next year. It's an opportunity that has been rare in Vikings history. Last time they had such a high pick, Spielman traded back one spot, took Kalil, and people thought he was masterful in gaining an additional draft pick in addition to getting the player he wanted. He later moved up to snag Harrison Smith in the first round.
Both Luck and RGIII were gone when Kalil was chosen and Ponder 'the reach', was already on the roster.
No second round pick after moving up to grab Smith.
With the third pick of the third round, the Vikings took Josh robinson .
Russell Wilson went with the 12th pick of that round, Nick Foles with the 25th, and Kirk Cousins with the 7th pick of the fourth round.
This gives me little hope of the Vikings finding a diamond in the rough at QB in any round.
I want to see a new GM and coach select a point scoring player with the high first round pick the Vikings will have; preferably a QB. An opportunity to pick this high should not be squandered on a non point scoring player unless a blue chip appearing QB or WR aren't available.
Though Kalil is a good player, I would not have taken a lineman with that high of a pick.
