Vikings draft preview Part I A look at specialistsWhat they need: New special teams coordinator Mike Priefer, who spent the past two seasons in the same role with the Denver Broncos, is going to have a say in these matters but there is little question that the most pressing issue when the lockout ends will be resolving who handles the kicking duties.
Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Re: Vikings draft preview Part I A look at specialistsThe top two rated kickers by Pro Football Weekly are UCLA’s Kai Forbath, who won the Groza Award in 2009 but missed five of 18 field-goal attempts in 2010, and Nebraska’s Alex Henery, who made 18 of 19 field goals last season and also can punt. Both would be late-round picks.
Whoever gets him will have a formidable weapon that can both kick and punt. A real rarity.“What takes a quarterback to the next level is not arm strength or mobility or any of that stuff. It’s the ability to play on critical downs. Manage third downs, or red zones or four-minute or two-minute situations"

If so, will his services be in higher demand to the point he might not be signable by a team such as the Vikes that already have a butt load of players that need to be resigned.
If I was to rank were Shortwell falls in the priority of effort, I would have him about 11th......
3. AD - A year early
6. Shanc - A year early
7. EJ - A year early
9. Erin or Leber
10. Tyrell Johnson
11. ShortwellMany many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
