Sure, they say the stuff (like I do) about giving the kid time, but I think we saw what he will always be, a "Running QB".
Like Vick, that is exciting, but like Vick, he isn't gonna be able to stand up to the riggors that a running QB goes through in this league.
In the end, they could still make him into a throwing QB, but I doubt it, atleast not in the near term.
What they do in the draft this year will be a true indicator of what they think.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Rationale behind that is mostly cause I think we are going to have a QB under center who is going to have issues with not only reading defenses but getting the ball to the correct spot on time and in synch with the recievers and when he does throw the ball, its going to be something short/high percentage, not anything deep.
Best fit is Rice. He knows the scheme and can catch anything that gets close.
Percy is another good option.
Of the top 3 WRs in the draft, I like all 3 of the top 3, but really think that the top 2 will be gone. That leaves Hankerson.
Strong and tough. Box-out WR with above average hands and concentration. Is always open, because he makes himself open wherever he is on the field with his strong frame and determination to be the guy winning the battle. Will easily slip into the pro game, and can break the jam and fill in as either a #2 or 3rd-down specialist for most NFL teams, day one. Can make the big play down the field. Can block. Toe touches. Very crafty. Draws PI calls. Young with lots of upside remaining.
Not an elite burner or blocker. Not as refined yet as he should be in his routes. Lacks a little discipline at times, and needs to do a better job of taking care of the little things, esp. coming back to bail out his QB.
1st rounder based on outstanding performance at Senior Bowl in both practice and the game.
Stick him on the field with PH and Rice and I think you would have one heck of a trio for a young QB to work with.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

As long as we don't pick Gabbert or Newton I will probably be happy.

I think taking him at No. 12 would obviously be a stretch, but if we can turn pick No. 12 into a later first rounder and a third rounder and snag Hankerson, and OT and a D-lineman ... I could easily live without the QB knowing the amount of weapons we will have for whomever I future signal caller is.

They were not as good the year before for sure but I have watched Auburn since the early 80's and they are well known for having up and down trends in their history.
Last season they had a new coach and he had to change the staff over so they had a down year.They were 5-5-1 in 1992 with a similar change in coaches and then went 11-0 the next year but I don't know if anyone remembers QB Stan White right now.B)

My two favorite Qbs are Mallet and Cam in this draft. Gabbett is has media inspired hype and Locker is not accurate in the position he will spend 90% of the game.
Re: Vikings 2011 draft board top 12
Cam Newton- Bust of the 2011 draft.....
Maybe in light of the recent Chris cook saga we need to look closer at the CB position.
