    We have MacCauley. He gets ran over enough, we need tough corners.

    Same here, would rather have had DJ Moore but what can you do.
    Allen gives us a return threat as well as a solid tackler.
    Reminds me a lot of Winfield plus like I said gives us a return man.
    Not terrible.
    The thing I liked about Moore is his versatility. He has also lined up at WR. I think passing on him will come back to bite us. IMHO
    He plays WR and is a questionable hitter. IMO he's too soft to play CB in the cover 2, especially ours. Probably why we targeted this Asher fella.

    We've all seen how MacCauley, another first round talent we drafted in the third, has adapted to our physical style of play at CB. He hasn't.
    Yeah this. From my understanding, moore might be the better player, but allen fits better into what we do on defence and can start at nickel right now.
    We're bringing purple back.

    With the changes going on in the division we need to get shut down cover corners and abandon that 10-15 yard cushion we have been getting by with or it will be a long decade.

    I like the Allen pick after seeing some highlights. Reminds me a LOT about Winfield. Fits our MO of stopping the run, and has good fpptball instincts. DJ Moore is falling on everyone's boards, so while suprised we didn't pick him, I am kind of relieved too.

    I was also a little suprised we didn't go TE considering there is a lot of talent there and we don't have a 4th round pick.

    Halo 4. Start another fight.

    Those WHOOPS on NFLN didn't say one word about the Vikings pick, not even a mention of who they picked.

    They couldn't shut their mouths talking about the Dolphins pick.


    I for one like to listen to what they have to say about the picks & see some clips, but they skipped right over the Vikings pick.

    Pisses me off to no end.

    Is it just me or does it always seem they go to commercials when the Vikings pick on day 2?
    Should have been on ESPN singer.
    They talked about Allen and now are still talking about the Vikes and Percy Harvin.
    Had an interview with Childress (don't know how much that is worth) but nonetheless they are still talking about the Vikes!

    I have a dual DVR on my DISH Network. I'm leaving one on NFLN & putting the other on ESPN.

    Fuck Eisen & his Sprint phone.

    Seems like a tough corner who can tackle. I don't mind the pick. Speed is nice but it is not really neccessary in our defensive scheme. The ability to tackle and cover your zone is more important.
    Because I'm a Vikings fan, they are that much sexier.

    Typical for them. Just like the day Cutler was traded and the Vikings state of the franchise was scheduled to air.
    They just skipped it and talked about the trade.
    I don't know if they ever aired the Vikings state of the franchise. I didn't see it.

    Screw them. I shut them off.

    Allen has a very slow 40 time for a corner. He's also short at 5' 10".
    A third round pick should be a quality player.And though I see a need for a good nickel corner on this team.
    I wonder what they see in him?

    That pissed me off, too.
    He spent 5 minutes talking about his phone instead of our draft pick.
    Rediculous.

    Bet you want a sprint phone now that Fhead Eisen was watching himself on his phone instead of covering the Vikes pick
    Reason why ia m watching NFLN is because ESPN has a history of doing exactly what Singer was talking about. Now i guess its NFLN networks turn
