    I know we need help at the DE position but i think if we wait till the 7th round there will be two studs to choose from Xzavie Jackson from Missouri and Antwan Barnes from Florida International but if we pick earlier i like Brian Robison from Texas

    I'd rather us use our two 4ths, 5th and 6th rounders on our offensive line and a TE

    i like...

    OT
    Doug Free - N. Illinois (stud)
    Adam Koets - Oregon State
    Brandon Frye - V-Tech

    OG
    beekman - BC, Wrotto - GT, M. Ramirez - TT, Mike JOnes - Iowa

    OC
    harris - NC state, Mozes, WV, Datish - OSU, S. Stephenson - ISU, Fry - clemson

    TE
    Patrick - Delaware, Milner - Georgia, Chandler - Iowa
    but i really like Kevin Boss out of Western Oregon for a 7th rounder or FA pickup
    Stud DEs in rd 7?
    ???

    By definition, wouldn't the stud DEs be gone by round 1 or 2... at the latest?

    ???

    Are you saying all 32 NFL teams are 'idjits' for missing out on those DEs today, and will continue to do so thru the end of round 6?

    ;D

    I think the Vikings, like other teams, will fill needs on Day Two, rather than strictly adhere to a BPA approach.
    The reason?
    There is little difference in level of talent between a player taken at slot 200 versus another player taken at 215.
    So, taking a player for need in rds 4-7 has far less potential to be a reach than a player taken in rounds 1-2-3.

    Therefore, I see OG, DT, and KOS as needs that might be filled ASAP on Day Two.


    Furthermore, there are several fairly talented DEs who have underperformed, who are currently on the roster.
    But the remaining DEs to chose from do not seem to have as much potential, so it would be wasteful to select less talented DEs to compete with those already on the roster.


    Alternately, OL depth and versatility could be useful, and competition at RG could be found via Beekam.
    The same could be said for a backup DT to compete against Spencer, and a K who might be used for KO's and long FG attempts.

    Also consider that there will be several vets available after the draft, from Monday thru the end of the pre-season, to fill remaining needs.
    So, drafting purely for need should be avoided.



    I'm just saying that i think one of these 2 guys is gonna be a good NFL player and they could be chosen in the 7th, just like Colston was chosen in the 7th and he's a stud isnt he? Just cause someone was chosen in the first 2 rounds doesnt mean that there going to be a star in the NFL, who cares when your picked just as long as you get on a team its how well you play when you get there

    I agree with you for the most part though

    Does anybody think we should draft Michael Bush? I know he was hurt this entire past year, but he is a beast.

    I want Beekman.
    Others:
    TE-
    Patrick, Boss, Chandler
    DT- Paul Solai who could learn from Phat Pat.
    He is a total load but needs to get motivated.

    On a side note; Michael Bush is still on the board... that is freakin RIDICULOUS.
    I'd pick him up in a heartbeat if he were around for us, even if we give up Memo and Fason to make room (trade obviously).....

    I know we don't need a RB but he's insanely good.... I believe he was a Heisman FAVORITE before his injury last year.
    So, you're saying 32 NFL teams don't have a good reason among them for drafting an insanely good RB?

    What about medical reports that you don't have access to, due to medical record privacy issues?
    Could that be a reason?
    Or, police records or files than might indicate another worrisome issue?

    I'm saying he slid, obviously his were due to medical concerns.
    I read up a little bit last night and reports are all over the place (leg is 99% to far from it, etc.).
    Odd that he sent a private workout tape instead of doing a live workout.
    Lots of flags raised there, but that's why 1st round talent is there in the 4th round. I don't think he had any character issues/police involvement.

    Granted, he was the 1st one gone today so it's a moot point; but for a 4th round pick he's a great gamble IMO.

    Oakland nabbed him w/ the 1st pick of the 4th round.

    Look back about 2 pages I brought him up and got jumped for saying he's good!

    I can not believe he slid to the 4th.
    I figured he'd slip to the late 2nd/early 3rd but.. wow.
