    Loving it!

    Thanks for posting Marty
    No worries.


    Wonder if this means the KAO really works?
    Haven't seen it slammed to much this year.
    :

    I have a hunch this is going to turn into a Jackson thread lol

    Doesn't have to.
    I for one think our current starter is gonna be our starter next year.
    The Vikes could draft a cat this year that eventually turns into the starter.
    I second that idea.
    The guy is having his best statistical year of his career.
    How can he not come back?
    Seriously!

    If I am king of the mountain, I am not leaving until someone knocks me off.

    I personally beleieve if we win the bowl.. He walks


    [/quote]

    For a while, but he'll be back by the time the season starts.
    He won't even need pre-season next year

    [/quote]
    Yeah ... no doubt we are going to the Favre treatment again this offseason.

    I think he is coming back if we DON'T win the Super Bowl. But since we are going to win the Super Bowl ... I call it 50/50.

    Not to get too far off topic, but who are the college QB's you're looking at?
    A few I have done some research on.

    Jevan Snead 6-4 217
    Tony Pike 6-6 214
    Dan LeFevour 6-3 228

    What I think we will be looking for is a big kid.
    Mostly cause of the size of our OL.
    Next thing will be a kid with a strong arm with a quick release.
    At first I was just narrowing it down to kids who have played under center more than in the spread, but I think I would be discounting some of the better prospects.
    I really like all four of those guys. After the first tier (Clasuen, Locker, McCoy, Bradford and Tebow) there is still going to be some solid talent.

    I think Snead has been pretty dreadful this season though and it should hurt his stock ... he could be a very nice pick. I also REALLY like Tony Pike.
    I need to start doing research earlier so I can catch some of these cats playing the game instead of just reading up on them.

    I just don't see us moving up in the first round of the draft so one of those "Second Tier" guys are what I'm looking at.
    Late first, early second (I would envision us moving up in the second though).
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    [edited out - that statement would just cause issues. - josdin00] ... but I hope they go for the smart kid with good accuracy versus someone with arm strength.
    I think too many college QBs get away with horrible accuracy because the pro ready wideouts get so wide open for them.
    LOL, I hear ya.
    Take a look at those kids. Accuracy doesn't seem to be to big of a issue.
    Atleast from what I've found.

    The next tier is McCoy, Bradford, Tebow & [size=10pt]Kenum[/size].
    Interesting.
    A name that hasn't surfaced for me yet.

    Here is the list I've been using to do research from/find names.

    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/p...rint_rows=9999
    Keenum plays for Houston and puts up ridiculous numbers, wouldn't be surprised if he's averaging over 400 yards per game.
    His name has been mentioned in the Heisman race.
    I believe he's a junior.

    I saw a little of Snead when he was a Freshman at UT.
    Him and McCoy were battling it out for the starting position.
    It was a real close battle from what I remember but Colt edged him out for the starting spot and Snead decided to transfer to Ole Miss.
    He has had a down year and I would guess his stock has dropped a lot.
    Interesting prospect that I would expect to get a fair amount of looks in later rounds.

    Before the injury, I thought Bradford would be the top prospect, not sure where the shoulder injury puts him now.
    Not sure if he'll be full strength for pre draft workouts.

    Haven't seen Pike or LeFevour play.

    Keenum is not an NFL quarterback. He is no different than Harrell, Brennan, etc. Spread offense, NEVER takes the snap from under center. Could develop LONGTERM (something like maybe Chase Daniels who looks like he might be a reasonable 5-year project or something) but is likely to never really cut it as a starter in the NFL.

    Bradford is still the No. 2 or No. 3 on most folks QB rankings (ahead of McCoy and Tebow) and I doubt he slips too far.

    Pike is a real treat to watch play ... as is LeFevour. LeFevour is one of those small school guys that you never know how he will pan out. He is EXCELLENT with his feet and has an accurate arm.

    I agree with you on Keenum, just a little surprised Marrdro hasn't heard of him, although I know he doesn't follow college much.

    Doubt I'll get a chance to watch LeFevour play, but I'll try and catch Pike with Cincinnati...don't they play Pitt here pretty soon.

    The finally fixed the RT and QB positions.
    Now if they would just scrap the ZB scheme Peterson could run for 2200 yards.

    Thanks Midg.
    I will still take a look at Keenum but think I'm pretty close with respect to "Who" they should be looking at.

    Suffice it to say, what the Vikes and a couple of other teams might do is causing me to have fits with my 7 rounder.
