Walter Cherepinsky just updated his mock draft over at walterfootball.com and he has us taking:
1. Reggie Smith
2. James Hardy
3. Chris Ellis
3. Craig Steltz
4. John David Booty
I would be absolutely ecstatic if something like this happened. This is exactly how I would hope the Vikings draft (maybe switching in Ainge/Flacco/O'Connell for Booty, but thats my personal opinion). Hardy and Steltz are two of my favorite players in this draft, and they are exactly what this team needs. I think we need to draft 2 safeties in this draft also, one to start this year (if Smith is leaving), and one to learn behind Sharper for when he retires.
Reggie Smith is perfect for us because he can play both safety and corner, which means he would be a good pick even if we keep Smith this season. James Hardy would also be a great pick for us. How is it possible to cover someone who is 6'7" in the red zone? With him and Rice (6'4") on the outside, I would really like our chances in the red zone (not to mention AP and Richardson being able to pound it up the middle). I think we need to pickup 2 young safeties, and 2 receivers this offseason (one rookie, and one decent free agent as well).
Walterfootball.com is my main site for prospect rankings. Its a very clean, professional looking site that is updated very frequently, and the guys in charge always have very well thought-out and reasoned opinions. It isn't the most in-depth and detailed site as far as player profiles go, but for anyone that is looking for a quick look at this year's (and next's) prospects, I would highly recommend this site.
