    We should take Adarius Bowman high in the draft.

    If he falls to the 2nd round, we're in the money. This guy is an Bolden with Speed ;D.
    Hope to see him in purple and gold but I expec thim to shoot up the rankings because of the combine.
    Known issues ( Kicked out of preious university for drug use) Was injured a bit this year.
    Can't we forgive the past?????? Him and rice will destroy teams for years to come.

    Re: We should take Adarius Bowman high in the draft.

    Not worth a first round pick IMO.
    He looked horrible all week in Senior Bowl practice and then "dropped" a questionable TD at the end of the first half (looked good to me though, but you have to hold on all the way through to be sure).
    I think Malcolm Kelly or Desean Jackson would be better options...even a player like the 6-7 James Hardy.
    He also has some off the field problems in his past.
    If we don't draft a WR in the first and he is the best available in the second....maybe then I would take a shot on him.
    Rock out with your cock out!!!

    I'm not intrested in spending a 1st on the guy at # 17. If he can fall to us in the 2nd, I want him.
    300 yard 1 game?????

    Re: We should take Adarius Bowman high in the draft.

    DeSean Jackson
    Malcolm Kelly
    Adarius Bowman
    Limas Sweed
    Early Doucet
    James Hardy

    What are the chances of 6 WRs off of the board after 47 picks (our 2nd)?
    I kinda like those odds.

    Unless we get Berrian, then it's all a void and I'll shut up.

    If he got kicked out of school for drugs then that means he is instantly in the substance program in the NFL.
    Is it worth getting a guy that is a piss test away from a month suspension?

    The odds would appear to be good for us to get a WR at 17 if we wanted to but not so sure what will be left that would be of value with our second.

    I am still messing with my mock and will for weeks, but based on team needs selection process I am currently following, I have 4 going in the first round.

    Buffalo Bills, Malcom Kelly, WR
    Philadelphia Eagles, Early Doucet. WR
    Dallas Cowboys (from Browns) *, Adarious Bowman, WR
    Tennessee Titans, Mario Manningham, WR

    I could see the Rams taking Sweed with thier 2nd round pick at maybe the Bronco's taking Avery or Hardy ahead of us.

    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Bowman has worse hands that Troy, did you watch the senior bowl practice?.. Gawd.. I really like Andre Caldwell in the second round if we cant get our hands on Kelly..

    Re: We should take Adarius Bowman high in the draft.

    Just like last year there will be WR's that will drop and fall. I am still not convinvced that the Vikes will select a WR or DE in their first 2 picks

    I really like Bowman, he brings size and speed to the table and has everything to be a top NFL reciever. That being said, I would rather get Pat Sims in the second.
