    Re: Eben Britton on his Visit with Vikings

    I'm liking this kid more and more.
    I just think that if we are to go after him, we should trade down a couple spots because I think he is a bit of a reach at 22.
    Plus, there will be alot of teams looking to grab a WR or RB if they were in our position so they very well may like to trade up to 22.


    Britton is a smart kid who is saying all the right things.
    He seems like a hell of a guy who would fit in perfectly with this team.

    If it becomes a situation hopefully we can merge the other one with this one, due to this ones title and the information in the article I think it deserves to stand out.

    Interesting note in there.

    Then I met with Rick Spielman, the vice president of player personnel. His job was to figure out a little bit more about me as a person.....
    Funny how some guy on here thinks he is the ultimate decider who plays on this team and who gets drafted.

    Who Spielman? Spielman is director of Player Personall, he definitly has a say, so does Childress.

    I'd be pretty excited if we grabbed this guy, maybe we can find some WR, or DB help in later rounds, or grab a vet WR that has been released in training camp. But solidifying the O-line has got to be a priority.

    Taking a WR early is always a gamble, very few come NFL ready, so grabbing a top notch OT, will bolster our O-line for years.

    I would like this pick as well, he will fill a position we need to upgrade and I see him a far less lickely to be named as a 1st round bust a few years from now.

    Actual George Paton is the Director.
