    Interesting Yahoo Mock

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shutdown_corner/post/The-Shutdown-Corner-SB-Nation-mock-draft-text-v?urn=nfl,158068

    22. Minnesota Vikings
    Daily Norseman
    The Pick: Mark Sanchez, QB, USC

    Daily Norseman: With the Bears having paid through the nose to acquire their "franchise quarterback," it's dawned on me that the best way to have a guy develop to that sort of status is to draft one and develop him yourself. While the Vikings have had the tendency to try to develop quarterbacks after taking them a little later in the selection process -- they have only selected two QBs in the first round in franchise history (Tommy Kramer in 1977 and Daunte Culpepper in 1999) -- they're in a position in this scenario to take a guy who, by all rights, should not be available at this spot. [more]

    MJD: Absolutely. I'm sure the Vikings that after acquiring Sage Rosenfels, that they were done with quarterback this offseason, but if Sanchez is there at 22, they have to take him. Maybe there's a fleeting thought given to Vontae Davis for a second, but only a second. In this scenario, it would have to be Sanchez.

    Of Course MJD still had the Eagles with teh 28th pick and they traded that 2 days ago

    Though it's possible, and similar things have happened, I don't think there's much of a chance at all the Sanchez drops to us...

    Don't see it happening either but I think it would be a interesting situation if he was and if we took him or passed on him. More because here he is considered a top Qb in this years draft but still sat behind JDB who is our #3 QB.

    Sweet. Then we could get Crabtree in round two and be set.
