    Official: The Vikings have the 12th overall pick

    I think Mallet will be there and i'd like to grab him
    I would not complain ... but for some reason I hate Mallet. Nothing to base it on really ... just can't stand him.

    I would love Cam Newton. Again ... don't know why. Just would love Cam Newton.

    I would too

    Im hoping he is available.. I love his mechanics.. His speed.. I think he can be groomed into a top QB..

    Reminds me of a faster Josh Freeman

    I think someone will snag him early because of his crazy skills.. Im hoping he doesn't though

    Seems that since this kid declared the other day several top draft guru's (McShay ESPN had him in the top 5) think this kid will be the second QB off the board.
    He looked like crap in his bowl game. No thanks. They can have him. I want a winner. I wish we could trade up for Luck, that guy is impressive!
    I agree on Luck, but are you saying that all the other "First round" guys aren't worth taking?
    Gabbert is very interesting no doubt and I definitely would not hate the pick. There are already a few mocks that have him falling to us, but I think when it is said and done he will likely move up to the No. 2 QB on the board. Which means we hope that Mallet, Newton or Locker fall to us at No. 12.

    With what appears to be a strong group of five first round QBs ... it is becoming more and more apparent that if we want one, they should be there at No. 12.
    I keep getting a bit confused, but who was the QB that would have went number 1 last year, but elected to stay in? Was it Mallet or Locker. Anyway, (Big MIke) on Mike and MIke was saying today that he thinks that cat might slip into the second round, based on how his stock is falling.

    That is the one I'm worried we might get. Again, I can't remember with one they were talking about.

    Gil Brandt says that if Newton plays well in his bowl game, he could go top 5.

    If he doesn't, he could slip past the middle of the first round, but he definately a first round talent especially if a team has the luxury of letting him sit and learn a couple of years.

    To your previous post its Locker

    I agree if Newton can sit he will learn alot and mix that with his crazy physical talent it would help alot

    IMO hes def worth a top 5 pick.. If we can somehow get him at 12 I would be THRILLED

    He is the kind of QB we need with this line.. The kinda QB you can groom into a top notch QB.. And a HUGE weapon with AP, Percy ETC.. We would be FAST

    He is top of my list.. Only reason I don't post much about him is because I think a team will snag him early..

    I have stated several times that I want a QB in the 1st round. That has not changed.

    Locker looked terrible passing in his bowl game. All he could do was run. I think his stock is falling to the 2nd round.

    I will wait and see what Cam and Mallett can do on the big stage.

    A lot of QBs are better NFL prospects than college QBs.

    I think that Locker falls into this category. I, of course, understand his falling stock, but I would not hate to see us pick him up.

    For some reason, the only one of the "Big 5" (Luck, Newton, Gabbert, Mallet and Locker) that I am shying away from is Mallet ... and truly there is no logical reason for that.

    In the end ... I think we have to take one of these five if they are there at No. 12. I think had we brought in a new coach it would have been a lock that we went QB, but Frazier may be happier with Webb than we think and we may go a different direction.

    My opinion is that Locker is not going to be able to read NFL defenses.

    Official: The Vikings have the 12th overall pick

    Ryan Mallett please! He is a carbon copy of Ben Roethlisberger (minus the rape charges). He obviously needs some coaching, but he has the size and arm to get the job done. Also take into consideration his progression in completion percentage:

    2007: 43.3%
    2009: 55.8%
    2010: 66.5%

    Minus the character issues, you have a 22 year old thats 6'7 240 lbs and possibly the best arm to come out in recent memory. You have to take that risk. But will he be there at 12? Debatable. The character issues help us out here though, just like they did with Percy Harvin.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    I'd hardly call a college kid getting a public intoxication charge in the offseason and paying $150 in fines and fees "character issues."
