    The issue: The Vikings have several areas they would like to address in this draft but none might be as pressing as right tackle. Adding a center also is a possibility....

    I won't be upset whether we grab a OT, or a WR in rnd 1, then the other in rnd 2. I have confidense that our FO have done their homework, and have broken down every scenerio that draft could present. Rnd 1 will be the BPA for our needs, whether that's a OT, or a WR we'll have to see. I don't agree with the STribe's reporters too often, but we must bolster our O-line, and give our QB another target.

    I agree.
    In fact, I wouldn't be to upset/suprised if they took a LB, CB, DT or even a RB.
    ;D

    [size=13pt]Sid Hartman: First-round tackles have worked here[/size]

    Starting with Ron Yary in 1968, the Vikings have taken seven tackles in the first round, and all have done well.

    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Offensive tackles are again a commodity in this year’s NFL draft. Might the Minnesota Vikings hone in on that group with their first-round pick?...

    Finally, a pick I can get behind for the first round. WR is a need, but not in the first.

    We're bringing purple back.
