    Vikings sign Hank Baskett WR, New Mexico

    http://mb26.scout.com/fnewmexicofrm11.showMessage?topicID=3398.topic

    Have to pick up my daughter or I'd jump all over this, but TheRedMenace.com has learned that DonTrell Moore has signed a FA contract with the New York Jets and Hank Baskett III is headed to Minnesota!
    -------

    The site adminstrator put it up so it's gotta be legit
    --------
    http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/scoutingreports/wr/hankbaskett.html

    Strengths:
    Has tremendous size...Very physical and knows how to use his big frame...Is an excellent natural athlete...Has great hands...Will routinely make the spectacular reception...Great leaper who was the 2004 Mountain West Conference outdoor high jump champion...Can be a major threat in the red zone...Has excellent body control...Runs well after the catch...Plays faster on the field than he times.

    Weaknesses:
    Does not have elite speed or quickness...Is not much of a deep threat and won't run away from pro defensive backs...Needs to round out his game and refine his technique...Is not as good of a blocker as a guy his size should be...Has some trouble beating the jam at the line...Can run better routes...Missed some time as a freshman with a spinal injury that will need to be checked out by the doctors.

    Notes:
    Doesn't get the attention he deserves as one of the premier senior wideouts in the nation...Has everything you look for except pure speed and is a bit of a big school sleeper...Could potentially be a #1 receiving target at the next level.

    Yes!!!

    I'd been hoping he'd land in Minnesota somehow. Being that I live in New Mexico and follow the Lobo's, I had hoped either Hank Baskett, DonTrell Moore or Ryan Cook would end up as Vikings. Two out of three ain't bad. :grin:

    Honestly, another name I don't know, but I'll wait and see what he brings to the field before I judge him.......

    Welcome to the Vikes Hank......

    See a need, fill a need. Way to go Childress! If anything this guy will help us when Marcus Robinson departs. I like his big physical style and hope he develops to a point whre he can contribute in our WR corps. We don't have any WR with his size.

    Great pickup from what I can see Childress. Sounds like a great leaper.

    That's good to see...he's got the ability to go up and get the ball...! He sort of reminds me of Marcus Robinson when he does that!
