    The thing with Griffen is he can also play LB. Always good to have a little versatility.

    Not in our system, maybe DT like Robison..

    He could play the edge in a 3-4.. maybe

    Can he play OL? That is where we need the help, not the DL, which is the most talent saturated group on the roster.

    RObinson

    That's it.
    We have a void at DE if Edwards leave next season. If he has a 12 sack season we wont match.

    Edwards will sign. He has much more to lose by holding out for the year and teams will not be as eager to sign him to a bigger offer if he digs his heels in. Heck , there wasn't enough interest to entice another team to sign the tender and take him.

    OTOH our OL consists of an aging right side of McKinney and Hutch, A young, undersized C who gets pushed around too much and a right side that is set a RT and a RG that hasn't been the most impressive. And the backup is Ryan "Feet of concrete" Cook.

    I think they need more help than the D line...

    Massive value in the 4th. Jayme Mitchell has been around a while and has not impressed me. I would imagine it is time for him to go. Great pickup. A need that was hidden to most.

    Makes me wonder if there are thoughts of Edwards getting moved.

    Don't move Edwards. We won't get fair value for what his potential is. I hate when fans are so quick to get rid of good players when a young unproven draft pick comes in.

    Exactly. This guy is projected as a true LDE that can not only hold up against the run, but he can stay in and pass rush as well.

    Look to see a couple of things happen here......

    a. We drafted a LDE and brought in another as insurance if Everson doesn't quite pan out. Means someone on the roster could be let loose.

    b. Either Ray is traded/moved somehow or Mitchell is gonna get the ax or both.

    If they do keep Ray for one year, this cat plays situational reps behind him, sort of a trial by fire. If he works out, bye bye Ray. If he doesn't, then the staff elects to offer Ray a contract that I am sure he is gonna demand.

    On a side note, I am damn excited over this pick. Finally, we are looking to put LDE out there at the LDE position.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
