    Don Banks' mock from SI.Com - Version 5.0

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2008/writers/don_banks/04/09/mock.draft5.part2/index.html

    17
    OT Chris Williams Vanderbilt Sr. 6-5 318

    The Vikings are in the position to take the highest-rated player remaining on their board, almost regardless of need. Williams is one of the top five offensive linemen in the draft, and either he or one of the remaining first-round cornerbacks (Talib or Jenkins) would seem to make the most sense.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I would love to have Williams sittinng there for us to take in rouund 1 I really hope he falls that far.
    Harvey will be gone and OT wil be our first round pick, and hopefully that will be Williams or Clady

    Taking Chris Williams seems okay, not sure about the cornerbacks though.


    The comment of taking the highest-rated player remaining on the vikings board, is very plausible, as long as it is a OL, DL, WR, or QB...not so sure it makes sense if that position happens to be RB, LB or DB.

    LOL - because I looked up Banks' Version 4.0 mock and you called him a dunce and posted your mock to show how much of a dunce he was.

    Just cause I think he is a dunce doesn't mean I won't agree with an OT at 17.
    I can't get the link to come up because of an add/banner.
    I will look at it when I get home.

    What other T does he have going off he board?

    He has neither Merling nor a safety picked in the 1st round.

    Now I will argue...... (JK
    ;D)

    I think Baker would be a better pick than Williams but wouldn't be unhappy it they took Williams.

    I see Kelly has dropped off a bit after his lackluster workout.
