    Vikings could haul in pretty good one

    [size=13pt]Vikings could haul in pretty good one[/size]

    They probably will wait until the second round to pick a good receiver. Thanks to the depth of talent at Ohio State, USC and LSU, they might be able to pull it off.

    Re: Vikings could haul in pretty good one

    I have a feeling Jarrett will be available when the Vikings choose in the second round, I really like both Smith and Jarrett beacuse they both have what our recievers were missing last year: hands, they may not be blazers but they catch anything that is thrown their way
    I still have confidence in T-Will and think that him and either of these two will be a great 1-2 punch for the Vikes

    Somehow I'm just confident we'll have a good draft.

    I like those guys in the 2nd round too, and they are in the perfect position to choose the one they think fit them the most.

    And I have total confident in Studwell and his team in evaluating the promise of the players.

    The only thing that can mess up our draft is if they blow away draft picks by trying to move up. But I think they'll be smart, they know we have a lot of needs that should be addressed on day 1.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Re: Vikings could haul in pretty good one

    I found this very interesting
    :

    Davis (6-1, 202) isn't as big as Bowe (6-2, 221), and Smith (5-11, 197) is much smaller than Jarrett (6-4, 214). But ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. said the days of NFL teams needing big, physical receivers are over because of stricter enforcement of the rules against illegal contact.

    "Now you're seeing [Carolina Panthers receiver] Steve Smith, a Deion Branch, a Santana Moss succeed," Kiper said. "It's no longer about the big receivers and being physical and all of that. Now, the little receivers can get it done with quickness and speed and separation. Those are the catch words now."

    Re: Vikings could haul in pretty good one

    If the Vikings: A, don't trade up for Georgia Tech's Calvin Johnson; B, won't settle for the second-best receiver at No. 7; and C, can't trade down -- do not panic.
    Finally, they are starting to see the light... ;D

    If we are lucky we can pick up Sidney Rice in the second round, but Steve Smith would also be a great pick!
