    I don't think we are gonna take Nuge in the second round anyway.

    We will grab Nick Novak from Maryland or Nichols from Ole Miss.

    I dont see studwell picking a kicker with the second.

    Re: Vikes to trade both first round picks..

    First of all, I don't see this trade happening. Why "put all our eggs in one basket?" If this player gets hurt for the season in training camp, it's like having 2 players getting injured.

    And what if the player turns out to be only mediocre in the NFL - and this happens ALL the time? Then, once again, the Vikes WILL be the laughing stock of the league regarding the Moss trade. It would be like giving up our original pick (18) in the Moss trade!

    I would love it if the Vikes did that. It would take all of the gambling element out, it would make sure we get someone we're confident in, it would give us whoever we think the better of the two recievers is as well....and the fact that it's cheaper would be nice too. I'd be ecstatic if they moved up.

    Something I noticed too....
    Does anyone else think the Vikes look like a different organization? Maybe its cuz Red is leaving, or they're just tired of losing, but it seemed like for a long time they just sat around with thier teeth in their mouth during the offseason, but this year is really the first year they've done ALOT (Moss trade, Smoot, Cowart and P-Williams signings, Draft movement) to get themeslves to be a much better team. I for one am excited.


    I agree. I have been sick of the old vikings sitting and waiting, hoping the guys we want fall into our laps. Then when they didn't, we had to settle. I like when a FO shows some balls and goes after the player they want hard. Show some confidence in your scouts and if they say a guy is a star in the making and you like him, go get him. You can't sit there and worry about the player not being the great player you expect him to be.

    If we do make the trade up to get our WR, our FO will have to have a ton of confidence in the player and think he is a sure thing star. I trust our FO more than I trust anyone of our opinions on the matter. I think we will do what is best for the team.

    If we were a team like the 49ers or tenn or another crappy team, that had a ton of holes still on our team, then there is no way you make that trade. But we were a good team last year and really only have big needs at WR and kicker. That is what makes it easier to do.

    I won't be pissed if we make the trade. If we don't, we better expect that we are gonna have to settle for the 3rd best WR on our board.

    Re: Vikes to trade both first round picks..

    Im split on this idea of trading, because it sounds like they are trying to be cheap by doing this. Why not see if either braylon or Mike will be there at 7 and then pick up another great player at 18. plus i think we need to trade one of our running backs, because its too much drama. I say we keep Micheal bennet and Moe williams. Mewelde moore is real good and so is Ontario but hes got issues and Mewelde really deserves to be a starter and i dont see that happening in Minnesota

    Re: Vikes to trade both first round picks..

    All this nugent talk has got to stop at some point! There are other good kickers that we can get in the fourth, fifth and sixth rounds and a rookie kicker is always a risk, I like Nuge, but this trade should be based nothing at all on Nugent.
    I also like the trade if it means we end up with BRAYLON EDWARDS, this guy is a stud and will be the man for years to come.

    Our RB's just don't have any value right now. There are too many good RB's in this draft and too many good ones available in trades, that are better than ours or have less of a risk. I bet we wait until during training camp or preseason, and let some team go through an injury with their #1 RB, then offer our Rb to them and get more value for one.

    Re: Vikes to trade both first round picks..

    i dont see tradeing two first rounders of one explacily in the same year and so high. now if you were to trade them your 7th are 18th this year and your first next year that would seem a little better.
    they prob wouldn't take the 18th though so u would have to trade the 7th.

    Re: Vikes to trade both first round picks..

    trading the 18th overall pick to move up 4 spots is ridiculously stupid. We will get an impact player at 7, as well as a very good player at 18. Why are we worried someone will not be there at #7. At least Braylon, Williams or Johnson will be there, 'nuff said.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    The problem is, we don't want johnson and expect mike and edwards to be gone at 7. So the question then becomes, how much does our FO like edwards or mike? If they like him/them a lot, they migh make the trade. If not, they will probably sit tight at 7 and take benson or trade down and grab williamson, if they're both gone.
