    The BEST pure RB in the Draft...and I want him to be a Vike!

    Indeed, size should not be much of a factor in analyzing Williams, whose low center of gravity, balance, vision and instinct should make him an instant success in a league where his kind of build is becoming the norm at the tailback position. Sure, there are teams and offenses that still prefer the big back who can slam the ball between the tackle, the human wrecking ball who physically erodes defenses. But consider this: The average size of the top 10 NFL rushers in 2005 was 5-10¼ and 214.8 pounds.


    I have been saying this for YEARS!!! 5-8 to 5-10 and 205-225 pounds is the IDEAL RB...this totally confirms it!

    I LOVE this guy as a football player...tough, smart, instinctive, high character, great attitude...and this guy wants to play for 10-12 years...imagine the stability that we would have in the backfield. Most all of the great Super Bowl teams have had a great RB...and I'm NOT talking Herschel Walker here...I'm talking an Emmitt Smith, a Marshall Faulk, a Walter Payton, a Jamal Lewis, a Franco Harris...and the list goes on and on.

    We have GOTTA get this guy...he will be the Offensive ROY...count on it!

    Why even though it would end any thought of Onterrio ever being seen in a Vikings jersey I would sooner use the pick on Antonio Cromartie with his ability to be our nickel back.

    Hey Cajun how can he be OROY when he would only be getting a handful of carries a game on the Vikes?

    I like DeAngelo a lot too, in fact I would rather have him starting than Chester Taylor, but the fact of the matter is we did sign Chester Taylor, who will ikely get most of the carries this year, so what is the point of drafting another RB in an already crowded backfield?


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

    I wouldn't say he is the best pure runningback in the draft. There's this one guy named Reggie Bush that is pretty good. I do like Deangelo and I think that he will be a great pro.

    me too. if we didnt sign chester taylor or lose daunte i would want to mainly draft deangelo in the first round. but we do now have a crowded backfield and we cant get a qb in the first rnd seeing that leinart/young/cutler wil be gone if we dont trade up so i say get a Lb then in the second rnd get a qb and a cb.

    whats the deal with onterrio smith is he on the vikings right now or do we have to give him money in order to be?

    Williams weighed in at 207 at his pro day, he is a bit on the smallish side.

    We have bigger needs # 17 than running back! (AKA Linebacker!)
