    Linval Joseph was the DT I wanted the Vikings to target in the OP, so I am happy with that pick up. Joseph is very good against the run, and he pushes back the pile up front. Joseph could make a huge difference on defense.

    The Vikings went with youth, Everson Griffen, over reputation, Jared Allen, at DE. I hope that works out. Jared wants starter money, but I do not think his tank has starter fuel for every game.

    The Vikings may now be looking to draft a linebacker at number eight and perhaps a quarterback in round two or three.
    I agree with all this, except I think that if one of the top 3 QBs is available at #8, we will be getting a QB in the first. If not, I expect a trade back to get more picks and the BPA in the 1st round, whatever position the trade gives us.

    I could be wrong, I often am; but I think we would take the #2 or 3 LB plus more selections in the 2nd and 3rd over a Barr or Mack. The draft is deep enough for a decision like that to pay off.

    I'm pretty sure that we will take a qb if Bridgewater or Bortles is there... I don't think they would take manziel at 8... he doesn't fit what Norv does best... plus he's short... i can't see them taking him...

    I've heard the Zimmer likes Bortles and Manziel, in that order. Whether that is true now or not, I have no idea... but I would LOVE to see OUR rankings!

    What in the hell makes anyone think that Cam Newton is available? I would think RG III is more available since everyone in D.C. is so in love with Cousins. But I think any QB worth while is likely not available. They are just too difficult to come by.

    As far as free agency, nothing would excite me more than bringing back Jared Allen to go get the QB on passing downs. Wishful thinking I'm sure.
