Hartman: Extra draft picks will help Vikings rebuild
Hartman: Extra draft picks will help Vikings rebuild | StarTribune.com
The Vikings are projected to get a fourth-round choice for wide receiver Sidney Rice,and another fourth-rounder for defensive end Ray Edwards,a sixth-round pick for trading defensive end Jayme Mitchell to Cleveland.
Sure would be nice to see what a GM could do with picks like that. The sixth pick is a gonner as it negates the one they gave for Dnabb but two 4th rounders is nice.
I'd use both of them to move up into the second/third if possible and get a few guys you are targeting instead of working BPA in the 4th.
1rst WR - Blackmon
2nd CB - Only if Cook doesnt' come back. If he does, take DT Alameda Ta'amu
3rd - OG - Zietler or Washington (one of them should be there)
4th - MLB - Cole. Just in case Jasper isn't gonna be right
4th - S - Iloka, Smith or Allen. One of them should be there.
4th - OT - Sanders or an Allen type
Use the rest of them to add depth at possibly CB, TE (Sauce retiring) and maybe RB if AD looks like he might not get 100% by 2013.
FA's I'd target.......
Raid the Chargers of Dombrowski (LT) and Vincent Jackson (WR).
Offense would look like this.
Blackmon----Dombrowski - Berger - Sully - Johnson - Load---Jackson
Defense would look like this.
JA - Kdubb - Ta'amu - Rob
Thats alot of playmakers on the field on both sides of the ball.
