    Howdy, y'all

    As my name suggests, I've been a (long-suffering) fan since 1970. But, my passion hasn't waned through the years, and I doubt it ever will. I've been reading with interest the views posted in PP.org, and finally decided to become a member. Skol!

    I just saw this posted on FoxSports.com. Thought it was worth a look. For myself, I would like to see Troy Williamson and David Pollack taken at #7 and #18, respectively, but hey, I like drinking milk with my potato chips. Go figure.

    Go Vikes!

    Vikings

    WR- Games aren't won on paper. But how many teams have as balanced and talented starting 22 than the Vikings right now? The winners of the 2005 offseason are mostly concerned with depth. Their wideouts (Nate Burleson, Marcus Robinson, Travis Taylor, Kelly Campbell) are decent but lack a true No. 1. Drafting Mike Williams with the seventh pick makes a lot of sense.

    DE- The draft sets up very well for the Vikings, who have the 7th and 18th pick in the first round. The top ends are all close in talent, so it makes sense to wait until their second pick to grab the best available end (David Pollack?).

    S- Corey Chavous is getting older and may be better suited as a reserve. Georgia's Thomas Davis at #18 is a possibility.

    I'm from Houston, too! Wow, how many of us Deep South Texas Vikings are there? I was born in a 300 mile radius of New Orleans, Houston, and Dallas, but to the Vikings I went. Must have been true love. No regrets, either.
