The more I read, the more I waiver on who/what positions they will draft this year.
If in fact they don't go out and get a WR and DE via FA then they will probably address those positions pretty high.
If they do go out and get a DE and a WR then I don't see them drafting one at all as they already have alot of youth/talent that still needs to be developed a bit.
S and QB are two of the positions I think they need to address both via FA and Draft as well.
With that said, I don't disagree with these picks if and thats a big if, we don't address WR and DE via a FA pickup.
Completely agree...I'm waffling more than Eggo's.
It just depends on whom the Vikes have rated highest.
I agree with S and QB as needs...as well as DE and WR.
This is a deep draft for WR...there are about 7 I could see in Purple and Gold next year.
Like the versatility of the the top 5 defensive backs this year, and, it is entirely possible that Kenny Phillips drops right in our lap.
I could see any one of about 8 players drafted by the Vikes in RD 1...simply depends on who they have rated highest.
I could see any of these guys (my picks are bolded):
Quentin Groves, DE, Auburn
Fred Davis, TE, USC
Kenny Phillips, S, Miami
DeSean Jackson, WR, Cal
Malcomb Kelly, WR, Oklahoma
Mike Jenkins, CB, South Florida
Jeff Otah, T, Pitt
Leodis McKelvin, CB, Troy (speed to burn, ST monster as a rookie IMO)
Could be wrong, but I see Merling going in the Round 2 or very late RD 1.
Completely disagree with Woodson in this spot.
Flacco or Henne will be much better...and, may be available.
I could see either of them here...hell, Brohm could even drop potentially.
That said, I think they will go WR in this spot...maybe:
Earl Bennett, WR, Vandie
Limas Sweed, WR, Texas
Adirious Bowman, WR, OK State
Jordy Nelson, WR, Kansas State
For some reason, I just have a hunch O-Line or TE; maybe because I think Rucker will drop here.
Martin Rucker, TE, Mizzou (if he is here, you take him, too good to pass up...3rd Round sleeper IMO)
Tony Hill, OT, Texas
