    Prospects...

    Well as you all know ( most of you) I for one havnt given up on the vikings...not one bit. But looking ahead and thinking about the draft next year lets just pretend we go say, 4-12....

    Who should we go for...



    Now we need help at the O-line...but unlike other positions young O-line is the last thing we need next year. We need to bring in proven talent.


    so that leads us to Two other positions that have been thorns in our sides for the past couple years..



    the RB position and the LB position...



    IMO reggie bush is to amazing to pass up on. I really think he could come in here like caddy in tampa and run threw the league..even catch threw the league.

    as Far as LB's theres 2 names I keep hearin about, A.J. Hawk and Ahmad Brooks...two quality Lb's. But why didnt we nab a LB in this past draft when thier was a big name one for us to grab (i.e. Derrick Johnson)



    My question, who do you think the vikes need to draft next year and will they bring instant help?.....

    Man I wanted Dereck Johnson sooooooooooooo bad... So this year im hoping if we have a bad year we can land AJ Hawk or Ahmad Brooks.. Of course who wouldn't want Reggie Bush?

    A.J. Hawk or get us a bruising RB like LenDale White or OL is always good.

    I agree 100% ultra..but I mean Marcus Johnson isnt trash..hes just young, so if we bring in 2,3 more young O-men..then we end up like this year...We could Nabb them in later rounds 5-7...but with our First pick...I would deff have to nab Reggie Bush and hope some how we could maybe get a second first round pick and nab a LB

    We need to build better depth there. We are battered there and nobody seems to be stepping up.

    A good line can make an average RB a stud. A poor line makes an average back look for a job at Wal Mart.

    Can't we just clone a couple of Randall McDaniels and line them up at guard for 15 seasons and call it good? lol
