    The Vikings absolutely need to take a stud WR with one of their 1st rd picks. If Atlanta would have thought that way and not drafted Julio Jones, Atlanta would not be the team they are right now. I am all for signing Jennings and have great respect for his playing ability, but they MUST get a playmaker on the opposite side of him now. It's better now having Jennings on one side, Wright in the slot. Rudolph as the TE, and AD in the backfield, but just imagine if we had someone like Keenan Allen on one side, Jennings on the other, Wright in the slot, Rudy as the TE, and AD in the backfield? That could be awesome man. If Ponder is even worth a half of pile of shit, he can make due with those 5 weapons.

    It truly depends on what WR is available tough. Almost all of the WRs in the draft this year have second round grades IMHO. We now have the flexibility to take BPA with both of our first round picks.

    Yeah, but no "stud" WR will be available in the 2nd rd when we pick starting at #52. If they want one, they need to take one in the 1st rd IMO.

    There very well could be a sleeper that emerges as a better WR than the guys projected above him. Happens all the time in the NFL. There is talent after the first round, we just have to do a better job of finding it than we have done in the past.

    Depends on who is drafting. The issue is... there is no clear cut #1 WR on th boards this year. That makes lining them up a bit difficult and the varying opinions is forcing the group down the *MOCK* boards. Lets remind everyone that who we think is a #1 is often basised off the eye test from 5 months ago and highlight reels. When you add in the fact that mock drafts say he should go here....we are often shocked when said player tumbles down draftboards they were never high on. My example would be AJ Jenkins vs. Rueben Randle. All indications had these players very close together on draft day. Rueben played at the bigger school... Jenkins ran the faster 40. However, no one (except scouting departments) had them selected almost 2 rounds apart. My point is... RObert Woods may be rated on most teams board as the #1 WR in the draft but as long as mock drafts keep saying he's a late 2nd rounder... we will keep believing that he is a reach when he is selected # 15th overall.

    This draft is deep at WR.
    Its the deepest draft I have seen at WR in a long time.
    There are atleast 10 guys that can be stars in this league off of talent alone.
    Wilson, Austin, Allen, Patterson, Woods, Rodgers, Hunter,

    Agreed. People don't get it. We have poured countless picks into CB. All of them are young...why keep drafting Cbs when the real problem last year was offense. Think how much better out defense would have been if half of those Fgs we kicked turned into TDs. Skins game... we are up 9 points off of 3FG. We had 3rd downs at Was 2, 16 and 10 yard line. With a better offense maybe the score is 17- 0 instead of 9-0 and our passrushers can really attack the QB. Instead we lost a game we should have won.

    The team is lacking a tall WR who can go up over the defensers in the red zone and on third down. I think they will be looking for a receiver that fits their needs on offense.
    However, if Austin was available he would be hard to pass up. Then a tall WR could be taken later in the draft.

    The first three positions we need to draft in my opinion are middle linebacker, defensive tackle and wide receiver. In what ever order fits for who is there at the time of our picks.
