    our first round picks

    The rest of the division was just put on notice for the next several years.

    I seem to remember some guys telling me we would not go defense and specifically CB in the first because it is a passing league. Looks like they were wrong.

    There are two ways to fight pass happy offenses. The first is an arms race to see who can put up more points faster.

    We stole a WR from a division rival, drafted another.

    The second way is to dominate them on defense.

    We added a beast DT with a chip on his shoulder and a big cover CB.

    We are firing both barrels. NFC North, be warned. We are gunning for you!

    My Meeple is purple. What color is yours?

    Vikings traded up to select Tennessee WR Cordarrelle Patterson with the No. 29 overall pick, sending the Nos. 52, 83, 102, and 229 overall picks to the Patriots.
    Patterson (6-foot-1 7/8, 216) spent just one season at Division I after a JUCO transfer, catching 46 balls for 778 yards (16.9 YPR) and five scores. Used in the backfield and on special teams, Patterson set Tennessee's single-season record for all-purpose yards (1,858), adding three touchdowns as a ball carrier and two on returns. Patterson is an athletic freak with insane after-catch elusiveness, but he's still learning to run routes with confidence and precision. At the Combine, Patterson ran a 4.42 forty with a 37-inch vertical and 10-foot-8 broad jump. Patterson is the explosive receiver the Vikings badly needed after trading away Percy Harvin. He'll likely slide in as the starter opposite Greg Jennings, ahead of Jerome Simpson.


    Xavier Rhodes - DB - Vikings

    Vikings selected Florida State CB Xavier Rhodes with the No. 25 overall pick.
    Rhodes (6-foot-1 1/2, 210) is a physical, long-armed (33 3/4") press corner who ran 4.43 at the Combine with a tremendous 40.5-inch vertical and 11-foot broad jump. A 38-game starter for the 'Noles, Rhodes tallied eight career INTs and seven tackles for loss. Rhodes displays loose hips, quick feet, ample recovery speed, and standout ball skills on tape. Consistency and technique were sometimes issues, but Rhodes' overall game is reminiscent of Aqib Talib. The former receiver is very aggressive and could start opposite Josh Robinson or Chris Cook in 2013.


    Sharrif Floyd - DL - Vikings

    Vikings selected Florida DT Sharrif Floyd with the No. 23 overall pick.
    Commonly mocked to the Raiders at No. 3 overall, Floyd suffered the biggest free fall of the night. A 6-foot-2 5/8, 297 classic three-technique interior rusher, Floyd finished his three-year Gators career with 26 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, three field goal blocks, and one forced fumble across 26 starts. Floyd ran 4.92 at the Combine with a 1.68 ten-yard split and 30-inch vertical. Deemed "without question" this draft's No. 1 player on tape by NFL Films guru Greg Cosell, Floyd is an up-field penetrator in the mold of Warren Sapp. He'll be a threat for 6-8 sacks as a rookie while serving as 32-year-old Kevin Williams' eventual successor.

    Someone else who just got put on notice is Mr. Brzezinski...dude's got his work cut out for him.

    I'm stoked, though...we just got a BUNCH of talent! Draft grade...A.
    An ugly win is better than a pretty loss.
