    Apparently the 49'ers are showing interest in Chris Cook, so we could need a CB really bad here shortly if we didn't already.
    Fraiser did the drafting????

    On topic- Remember a lot of teams cut players after the draft once needs have been met. Sometimes a stud falls to a team and it makes them cut a guy they was not planning to cut. I expect us to pick up scraps at that point.

They also haven't had the best of luck with drafting overall good LB's, guess what else we need? Now that's why I would like to get some players in free agency that have already proven themselves.

    Sign Revis when he is released and all is forgiven. If you do nothing, then when we are a 5 win team again next season don't wonder why the fans aren't showing up to the games. We Viking fans are sick of this shit. Is it to much to ask as fans that spend money and make these fuckers rich to want and demand a competitive team every year? I don't think so.
    We dont need Revis.. He's an asshole that only cares about money... but I do agree with your other point... the few positions we have drafted poorly are the biggest holes we need to fix... We also need to start hitting on these late round picks we have... outside of the 4th round we rarely if ever find any players that turn out to be solid starters or pro bowlers... I'm hoping it was the coaching... but doubtful.

    Melton won't be a bad sign that keep depth at that DT position he's a good player but they should focus on CB and LB

    I am not that stressing. I would have liked Verner, but we all know that he is a zone kind of guy. Rhodes and Cook are both built for man coverage. I would like to see us retain Cook for a year, but if he is gone there is still plenty out there.

    I have to think they are planning on addressing CB pretty heavily in the draft (maybe with two picks out of their first four). They could still go after Revis, but I would be surprised to see that happen. We knew they were not going after Talib, so that doesn't hurt. Maybe Vontae Davis would have been nice, but he clearly wanted to stay in Indianapolis. I don't know what else these guys could have done to get any of the guys that signed already.

    Rodgers-Cromartie would be interesting, he seems to fit Zimmer's CB mold.

    There is plenty out there, and will be even more cuts in the future. I like the Joseph signing alot and LOVE that Melton is coming in ... if we can land him then we have made serious upgrades already to what was an old and tired line.

    That is like a needle in a haystack though. NO teams hit on Pro Bowlers in the fifth, sixth and seventh rounds. It is rare to find that kind of talent there. The talent we got with Sullivan alone in the sixth round is a good hit. Much less Griffen in the fourth round (but that is even still within the four rounds). BTW, We did get a Pro Bowler/All-Pro in the sixth round just two drafts ago.
