Re: Vikings targeting specific QB at 12
This is kind of funny. More than likely it is smoke and mirrors. I would imagine that Gabbert is high on our list, just a gut feeling.
I think we really like Locker, but I don't know that we would be "targeting" him at No. 12.

Another one that seems to get alot of praise is Webber from the Gophers.
Gonna be interesting to see were they fall if there is a big run like everyone expects.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Truth of the matter is, lots of stuff quoted by the staff that says its a staff effort and not something the HC has all the say on like a few of you contend especially when you talk about the drafting of TJ.
Just saying.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Gabbert (Probably gonna be gone but some speculation out there that teams are worried about the limited time they will have to get him ready so they might opt to take someone that will be more ready to contribute right away which might let him slip to 12. Again, I doubt that will happen but will be jumping up and down if it does)
Fairley and/or Dareus (If one of these two are sitting there at 12 we'd better jump on them. Both would go along way to fixing some of our defensives woes. Dareus won't be there but some speculation persists that teams aren't buying into the sleep apnea (sp) excuse and will pass on Fairley.)
One of the WR's. (If there are 3 QB's taken above us then there is the possibility Julio might get to us.)
Peterson. (Like one of the DT's, I think Peterson would, although I don't think its a big need, look real good next to Griff in a new look zone/press C2 scheme.)
Not sure who the other cat might be but IMHO it could be Von Miller. He, EJ and Chad would make for one hell of a LB group.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Re: Vikings targeting specific QB at 12
So were targeting either Mallett Locker or Gabbert, I would assume, with Newton already gone. I don't know what to believe right now. All 3 could potentially be worthy of that #12 overall spot. All 3 have knocks.
Gabbert - Only 16 TDs last year, and didn't play in a pro style offense. Are teams currently talking him up because they really covet someone else?
Locker - Not from a pro style system, but certainly has the athletic ability, maybe more of a developmental project than the other guys. A lot of buzz both good and bad about this kid. Very interested in where he winds up.
Mallett - How much of the whirlwind that surrounds Mallett is true and how much is being spread by teams that want him to fall to them?
Who has actually gone on record to say Ryan Mallett did something that's a legitimate concern? The kid did 'drugs' in college, stop the presses. All we know for sure is the he can fucking sling the pig skin.
Again interesting to say the least to see where Mallett goes in the draft.

I actually don't think this staff is interested in Mallet at all especially when you look back at history and see what kinds of QB's Musgrove has either had under his tutelage as a QB coach or O-coord.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

But also on more important matters.. What character issues with Mallett? Point me to one instance that leads you to think he's a questionable character. Team-mates and coaches repeatedly stand up for him. Only negative i've heard is 'drugs' and questionable character relating to 'drugs'.
If I'm working for an NFL team and this kid is the most talented QB coming out of the draft. I'm finding out exactly what drugs Mallett did and how often. It's all just word of mouth up until that point.
Without that knowledge we can't really put a fair label on him. Didn't Percy Harvin fail a drug test at the combine?
