    Lots of good WRs in the draft

    Minnesota Vikings need a receiver in draft, and there are lots of good ones

    lol. Come on... 7 yards.

    IMHO we need a WR who can go up and take the ball away from defenders. Ponder can throw the ball 30 yards with decent (but not great) accuracy, but it will get there so slowly that the safeties and corners will have plenty of time to react and get into position. We need a WR who can go up in traffic and either pull the ball down or knock it away. Speed is important, but not as much as height and hands.

    That is what Caine has said all along, and I agree. The problem starts at the top.

    As bad as that sounds, Williamson had more receiving yards & more TD's in his rookie year here than veteran's Simpson & Carlson had combined for us last year .

    That is one depressing statement. Williamson was better than what we have now. WOW!

    I already don't want Austin. Let your play talk for you kid.
