People have had us picking up offensive linemen and corners for the last two or three years in mock drafts, and it never turns out that way.
Last year we went linebacker, the year before we had TWO first round picks and went wide receiver and defensive line. I think the year before that is when we picked up Kevin Williams (I think), so when it comes to picking what the Vikes will do in the draft, these mocks suck!
We took Udeze the year before (2004) and Kevin Williams in 2003. So that was 3 years of defensive linemen in the first round in a row.
If we take
DE it will be 4 out of 5 in a row.
We should trade up for Calvin Johnson, but the trouble there is, who do we trade with? We need to get atleast in front of Tampa Bay, but they have the coin flip, so we aren't guaranteed a pick in front of them if we trade with Cleveland. We won't trade with the Lions, and they wouldn't move anyway. So that leaves us with the Raiders.
We need to get a trade done with either Tampa Bay or Oakland. It will be tough, and probably expensive, but if we want that #1 overall I think we could do, our first round pick, a 3rd round pick,
and 2 players we may be cutting (Smoot, Rosy, Kleinsasser, Wiggins) and maybe throw in a 2nd or 3rd round pick next year and get Moss back
