    Landry?

    VIKES LOCKING ON LANDRY

    Industry sources in the Minnesota area tell us that the Vikings are stongly believed to be planning to pick safety LaRon Landry with the No. 7 overall selection in the draft.

    The Vikes, we're told, have a history of prepping the fan base for the actual pick, especially in years where the locals are clamoring for someone other than the guy the Vikes have targeted.

    As we hear it, the fans want Adrian Peterson or Brady Quinn.
    If Landry is on the board with either or both of them, Landry will be the pick.

    The only guys who could get the Vikes away from Landry would be quarterback JaMarcus Russell and receiver Calvin Johnson.
    Both are expected to be long gone by the time the Vikes pick.

    As to the team's apparent infatuation with Russell, a reader has offered up this gem:
    "Jamarcus would never get to use that cannon arm in Minnesota.
    We don't have receivers that can catch, much less go deep for an 84-yard bomb.
    The longest pass in this offense is three yards shy of the first-down marker."

    I'd take him. Our pass defence was last. we can get a reciver in the 2nd round.

    I don't think its our defensive back field that cause that.....we get better pass rush and we have a better pass defense.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    LMAO!
    It's funny cus it's true...

    Anyway, don't forget to post a link with the article next time.
    As far as Landry, I think he would be a decent addition, although I agree with davike when he said that out back field wasn't the problem last year.
    Still, draft BPA, not for need, so Landry could certainly end up coming here.

    Bingo, if either Gaines Adams or Jamaal Anderson is on the board I would be disappointed if Landry is the pick.


    Chuch.

    If the Lions do end up drafting CJ we will need all of the help we can get in the secondary.

    I really don't think we would base our pick on the whether or not the Lions draft CJ.
