    At this point of the season, who should Vikes take w/ first draft pick?

    Based on what you've seen so far this season, what is the position you want to see filled with a first round pick?
    Try to have some imagination and not just say "Best pick available" because...well...duh!

    My pick would have to be a safety such as Kenny Phillips from Miami.
    It used to be OT Sam Baker from USC, but I changed my mind after watching our line dominate on Sunday.
    The reason I like Phillips is because our safeties are getting old and don't have a lot of tread left.
    We need somebody that can cover some ground and lay the wood on receivers.
    If a WR has to worry about getting laid out, it is an advantage for our pass defense.
    Phillips has drawn comparisons to Ed Reed and Sean Taylor.
    I think he is a bigger, more athletic version of Robert Griffith myself.
    Also, if we pick around 10-15, we have a real shot to get him.
    Let's hope that we are picking last though!
    Rock out with your cock out!!!

    Way to early to say, depends how the year pans out, but if a QB doesn't show some great strides and improvement soon....I'de have to take a really good look at what QB's are there....Maybe Ryan from BC.

    As far as QB's go, I think Andre Woodson has the most upside out of any QB in this draft.
    However, I do not think he fits the WCO due to his slower than average throwing motion.
    Because of that, I agree with Ned that Ryan is the best fit for the Vikes.
    Maybe we can wait for the second round for a QB like Brennan (high risk high reward?) or Henne.
    Perhaps we have another QB slide like Quinn did in 07.
    Brohm is the most likely candidate for this since his team has not lived up to expectations this season.

    Another thing for sure, the Browns are not going to keep both Quinn and Anderson next season, and as of now, I wouldn't mind us bringing in either one and giving them a shot....

    Some kind of pass rusher, I don't really pay attention to college football so I don't know any good ones.

    Out of curiosity, why do you think it is a sure thing that they won't keep both? Is there some contractual reason that would prevent them from keeping both guys? It seems to me with injuries like they are that having 2 quality guys would be a good policy unless one has a contract due that would put them over the cap.

    Re: At this point of the season, who should Vikes take w/ first draft pick?

    I would like to say BPA, but it is just so obvious that we need to go with a QB. The need is just so much bigger than anywhere else. Yes OL may be lacking, but Cook is so developing. Rice may turn into a stud WR, and its hard for rookie receivers to make an immediate impact.

    Defensively, we are already extremely young at CB, LB, and DE.
    My draft priority would be like this, position-wise:

    1. QB
    2. S
    3. WR
    4. DT

    Re: At this point of the season, who should Vikes take w/ first draft pick?

    I would love Kenny Philips! Unfortunately, he's a top 10 pick so unless we suck to the extreme, we aren't getting him. Matt Ryans is also an excellent pick.

    BTW stay away from Andre Woodson! He is not as good as people think!!!!!!!!!!
    Because I'm a Vikings fan, they are that much sexier.
