    next years draft

    I think the vikings next draft should look like this

    1. Offensive Tackle- We need protection and holes
    2. Tight end- wiggins is 30 and we could use a vertical threat
    3. Free Safety- apprentice to darren sharper
    4. Strong Safety- big mack truck like safety
    5. quarterback- depth if Johnsons done
    6. Offensive Guard- for depth
    7 Middle Linebacker- get a speedster who can cover on passing downs.

    Re: next years draft

    Webby I think you should merg this into the other draft threads before we have like 234433 going again.



    But...We should take a LB or RB with our first pick. No need to use a first round pick on O-Line help when talent for that postion can be found easliy in later rounds and FA.

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!

    Re: next years draft

    I think we need to take a backer with our first pick, and a lineman with our 2nd.

    1. i agree
    2. wiggins is 30, yes, so he's got a couple of years and we have kleinsasser, TE is mabybe our best position!
    3. Dustin Fox
    4. Willie Offord
    5-7. sure i guess... 5-7 are really more of a best guy available, boom or bust kinda picks.

    Re: next years draft

    you really think we need linebackers?

    I wish it could look like this next year

    Dontarrious Thomas weakside
    EJ Henderson Middle
    Napoleon Harris Strong Side

    But................... why, why arent the playing to their potential!!! its so sad to see that all these guys were amazing in college and are so talented, but just fall flat now. Napoleon wasnt bad with oakland, i dont know why he cant crack the lineup now. He has more potenital than AJ Hawk, but I guess that its more of a mental than physical game.

    That is a scary thought, the only one i look at with confidence is EJ, but in the middle? Thomas and Harris both look lost on the field, right now i really do think Thomas is ahead of harris, i had hope for harris and still do but he's gonna have to make a really quick turnaround.

    Re: next years draft

    we need a MLB more then ever. A.J. Hawk is lookin nice...Cowart is gettin up there in age. Newman has done a great job replacing Nappo. I was pushin for nappo to step up for weeks, but we cant denie, hes not producing. We need to get a First Round talent LB.

    Re: next years draft

    How could i forget about NEWMAN!!! He's playing awesome ball this year, he was our best LB last year and is thus far this year. Newman is still in his 20's. We have a core of players on defense that will be playing with each other in the far future including:

    Udeze-K Williams-Pat Williams- Eras-EJ-Smoot-Winfield-Sharper

    These players are all tied up and will be playing with each other for at least 2 or 3 more years, some longer, i would like to get Newman a contract to make him part of this core.

    Does that mean you want a hard hitting linebacker? I'm confused.
