    Re: Vikings select Tyrell Johnson 47th overall

    I like it. Adds good depth and we need someone with good coverage and speed. He is the total package. Great Offseason so far!

    Interesting.
    I don't understand why we traded up for a safety, maybe the Vikings don't plan on keeping Sharper after this year?
    Or can he play nickel corner or something?
    I guess safety was the last position we'd draft there.
    Hopefully he's worth the move!
    Go Vikings

    Anyone know what we gave up for moving up?
    Hopefully a 6th rounder ... not the 4th rounder.

    This guy will be the person who will succeed Sharper when he retires.

    i like this pick, watched his highlight reel and he has some good reads and speed, not afraid to tackle a guy :P Sharper isn't gettin any younger

    It is a very good pick considering Sharper's age.
    He is a very good safety, and one that a lot of people had ranked a lot higher.

    But i just don't understand why we traded up...
    I would think he would have been available at the 47th pick given the teams in front of us.

    I think you are close.

    Because of our CAP status after a couple of key signings this year we will have to start letting a few vets go who are at the edge of being productive.

    IMHO Sharper is at that edge right now.

    The kid is the 2nd best S on the board so the value was good with the pick (Remember Spielman said BPA), he fills a need (ST this year and could come in and start) this year and for the futue.

    For all of you who say we have alot of S's those guys are just gap fillers or they wouldn't have been on the FA market. MW and TJ will look good together for years.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
