    Re: Vikings select Tyrell Johnson 47th overall

    Great pick up. Guy hits like a truck, and seems like a ball-hawk as well. I couldn't think of a better Sharper-esque safety to learn alongside the man himself.

    As far as how we use him this year, I would think he would come in on run support (seems like he excels at this) on obvious running downs. Also he seems like a really strong special teamer, so he'll no doubt earn a spot there as well.

    I like the pick...Mel Kiper JR had him ahead of Kenny Phillips. I just don't know about not picking until the 5th round now...I really hope they package up a small bit of their last 5 picks and get a 4th rounder.

    He looks like a fierce hitter and a good, sure tackler. Interesting pick.

    Blah, why did we move up for him?

    Re: Vikings select Tyrell Johnson 47th overall

    Here's how I see it. We probably won't resign Sharper and use this guy as our safety. We probably couldn't pass up on him and Childress seen something he didn't want to pass up on. Now Jacksonville as we seen earlier traded down its 2, 2 3rd's, and 4th round picks. They must have traded their 5th, 6th, and 7th picks to get back into the 2nd. So, if we trade our 5th, 6th, and 7th rounders we could probably get into the 2nd round and snag Brohm or Henne.

    Sound crazy?

    I think so too.

    Sound possible?

    Yup.

    Likely?

    Probably not.

    I like the pick, little shocked at first because I never heard of him. Small school guy with a chip on his shoulder. 27 reps at 225 and 4.43 speed to go along with 363 tackles, 13 INT's and 4 FF in his carear. Looks like EJ Henderson at safety. I think he can be a Pro Bowler, we must have really liked him because we moved up.

    I love the pick, but we did not have to trade up
    :'( if hewasnt there brohm would of been a solid pick or a OL. But whatever in the future I wont be worried bout it, think this guy will be a star

    Re: Vikings select Tyrell Johnson 47th overall

    i don't know whether or not he will start this year but he seems like a great player and none of our other safeties were the future
    so he will be with us for the long haul opposite Madieu Williams.

    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.
    +1

    Also..

    Sounds like the best fit for the Viking 2 - good acceleration, football IQ and tackling.


    Interesting stuff.
    Depth looks great everywhere except the OL - looks like McKinnie won't be reprimanded.

    I would guess they thought the Bears may take him since Mike Brown is hurt every year and they are not very solid there either.
