Thread: Vikings Have Best Draft Of 2013

He is a natural hands-catcher, but will have some concentration lapses and drop some easy ones, running before securing the reception.
Will he catch a few in his body? Sure he does, but I think that is a result of him just making the catch on a ball thrown to a spot and him not being at the right spot.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

We addressed three of the biggest holes in our lineup with three immediate impact players. You can't ask for a much better first round than that. I am still concerned about what we are going to do at MLB, but that is my only major concern left now. I wonder if we start looking harder at Urlacher or Dansby now.Zeus wrote:
When are you going to realize that picking out the 20 bad throws this year and ignoring the 300 good ones does not make your point?

I think we will see them bring in a OB and move Erin inside to the Mike and use one of our remaining picks on another development guy if they don't think Cole is going to keep getting better.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

That sounds like a dream secondary to me. Two big and fast corners to cover the big guys like James Jones and Jordy Nelson on the outside. While blazing-fast Robinson to cover the quick slot-receivers like Cobb on the inside. Looks like we are tailor made to face the Packers the next ten seasons.
Still.. I'm less than impressed of Chris Cook. I think he definitely has the talent to be a very good corner in this though division, but he's just not consistent and never seems to be able to play even close to a full season. He's had plenty of chances, but disappoints every year. Plus, I don't even remember seeing him make ONE interception. Is it just me?

1. He is young yet. That means he will make mistakes as he learns. Rhodes will do the same thing watch. It just happens.
2. In our scheme INT's only come if the QB makes a bad throw or the ball gets tipped. The emphasis is to not give up the big play after the catch.
3. I am 100% convinced that alot of our DB injury concerns are a direct result of them having to support the run so much. Ole Purple Floyd JR is going to help alleviate some of that.
4. As Cook gets reps, he will learn how to protect himself a bit more. That also will help with the injuries.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

2. Yes, and I accept how our scheme is designed in a way to hinder big plays as opposed to a high risk, high reward defense. However, after personally watching Chris Cook miss on easy interceptions on more than a few occasion is getting annoying. He has been in the NFL for three seasons now, and he has ZERO interceptions. That's just awful, even in our system. Josh Robinson who was drafted last year and played in very limited snaps has TWO interceptions and only 20-something less tackles than Cook has had in THREE seasons. Enough said!
3. Yes, probably.
4. How much more chances should we give this guy? Three seasons is a lot of chances. Like I said, I'm not opposed to trade Chris Cook for a late second or even early third. Teams see that he has potential so we might get that much value from him.
