    Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress said that if someone comes through who is capable of 20-25 carries, they could try to draft or sign them.

    Well If Childress needs help finding a player like that, I have a few choices for him.

    Alexander

    Edge

    Lewis


    Those are just a few to start with.... :grin:

    why can't we find our own cadilac wiliams in the draft? I am sure there is someone out there capable enough. Edge and Alexander cost to much $

    I really hope we don't get Alexander. Too much $$$$$$

    I would be ok with getting Edge or Jamal Lewis. They'll cost money too, just not as much (I think).

    I guess I hope though we draft one of those RB's in the first round.

    Im kinda in the same boat as u Happy Camper.. I REALLY REALLY REALLY want Edge on this Vikes and instantly upgrade our O.. But it could cost us too much..

    Maroney reminds me of Edge not just because of the Dreadlock either.. So im kinda hoping for him

    Re: Vikings | Childress would like to upgrade running backs

    I feel like, at this point, the Vikings should not be the team to go out and "get everyone" like last year. I think it would be a huge mistake and Zygi knows that. We will likely sign a few veteran defensive players to bolster out linebackers and safeties and then sign a veteran OG or OT to help along the line. That puts us in a good position to nab either Deangelo, Lendale, or Maroney in the draft.

    The vikes haven't had a real running back since robert smith and I think that the draft this year is the place to get one. I don't want us to get rid of all of our cap space signing one big name player. Any of the guys that are in the draft now could give us 20-25 carries per game and could possibly be great NFL players. Edge isn't necessary.

    Offseason checklist-
    1. Akin Ayodele
    2. LeCharles Bentley
    3. Adam Archuleta
    4. Will Witherspoon

    Draft best available-
    1. Deangelo
    2. Maroney
    3. Lendale

    Lendale will be the better RB out of all the ones in the draft this year I hope we take him.
