    Sporting News 7 round mock..

    Here's who they have the Vikings picking for their draft in their draft special issue..

    1 - 17 - DeMeco Ryans OLB Alabama
    2 - 48 - Brodie Croyle QB Alabama
    2 - 51 - Marcedes Lewis TE UCLA
    3 - 83 - Dee Webb CB Florida
    3 - 95 - Maurice Drew RB UCLA
    4 - 115 - Fred Matua G USC
    5 - 149 - Marcus Hudson S N.C. State
    6 - 185 - Tommy Jackson DT Auburn

    They actually have the whole draft mocked..poorly I'm sure, but they tried.

    I do not like the DeMeco Ryans pick, all the other picks are okay by me though! What do you guys think? Fills our needs quite nicely though.

    i said no the second i saw brodie croyles name..we will either get one of the big 3, or else make the deal for schaub..you cant honestly believe that he is happy being a career backup in atlanta..the rest looks pretty good other than the fact that we would be losing the 17th pick if we did in fact get schaub..i like maurice drew the RB outta ucla, but still see absolutely no point in us taking a TE in the 2nd round
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    Jermaine Wiggins is not as good as you think, imagine the Vikings with a *real* pass catching threat at TE.. and no, Wiggins is not a real threat..

    We need a better QB than that.

    Most mocks I seen have us takin' Sims wit' our foist pick, and some have Jay Cutler or Chad Greenway fallin' to us. I would prefer dat instead of dat Ryans mug, y'know? Plus, if we wanted Croyle, witch I tink would be a mistake seein' as how we could mebbe get Kellen Clemens or Omar Jacobs instead, we should use da second of da 2nd round picks for him, not da foist. And instead of dat TE Lewis, we should try for anudda LB or OL man, y'know? I don't know none of da picks outside of Ryans and Croyle, so I couldn't tell ya much 'bout dat.

    There may be some wishful thinking here but overall, I like it!

    Here's what I would change:

    2 - 51 Best TE available: Pope, Lewis, Byrd (need to get some young depth here)
    3 - 83 Omar Jacobs (This might be a tad wishful but most mocks have him going third or fourth round)
    3 - 95 Alan Zemaitis CB Penn State

    Gimme a break; the guy's a beast. He's not the prettiest TE out there, but he runs great routes, has soft hands, and is really fun to watch; he's the Rudy of our team.

    I can't agree. He played well for us all year, not to mention he saved our ass in the giant game making an amazing catch with only seconds left. Good enough for me.

    a beast? Anyone could put up those numbers with the role he has in our offense, which is sit down in an area, catch the ball, and do nothing with it. 8 yards a catch is nothing to be proud of.
