    Re: Well it looks like we are takin a Fullback in the draft

    cute typo PHOD


    But i doubt that Minnesota is going to take a FB on the first day unless he is a far and away the BPA. There are much more pressing needs considering the players currently on roster.

    FB- Richardson, Dugan
    RB- AP CT MeMo (FA) Tahi
    TE- Kliensasser, Shank, that guy that played in the denver game i think his name was mills or something.

    I think that drafting a FB will be low priority. TE is more possible.


    VikesFan787, Thanks for the awesome sig!

    I think we should take the best player at any postion(except RB in the first round). This is how you develop the best team/best competion between good players at the same position.
    If this FB is the best player than take him! ;D
    But if you ask me who I want... it would be a vet WR.

    I wish we somehow could have signed Leonard last draft

    Not so sure they will take a FB, regardless of what your mock says.

    My bet would be that they move Mills to FB, especially if Tony doesn't come back.
    That gets Mills on the field as they can't bring him up unless they vacate a roster spot for him.

    Think about it.
    We have Dugan, Shank on the roster who have played TE and FB.
    Mills is just the next guy in line.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    That's all you need to know.

    Re: Well it looks like we are takin a Fullback in the draft

    Whether they'd even consider taking a FB is probably going to be determined by whether Richardson stays.
    If he goes, then they might be willing to use a mid-round pick on a FB they really like.
    If Richardson stays, then I think the Vikings won't draft someone they won't expect to have a roster spot for, and will be happy to further develop one or more of the younger players that others have mentioned above - Dugan, Tahi, Mills, etc. - until Richardson does leave.

    But obviously no one is going to take a FB in the first round.
    In the modern NFL these guys tend to start going in the 3rd or 4th round (history).
    When the age of the Vikings came to a close, they must have sensed it. Probably, they gathered together one evening, slapped each other on the back and said, "Hey, good job." - Jack Handey [Deep Thoughts]

    I tend to agree... Richardson is the key; though I really like Schimitt....
    We also have to realize T-Rich is a free agent... granted I assume he'd like to come back here to play....

    I think Schmitt looks awesome, but I'd be surprised if we get him. Am I imagining it, or can't Tahi play fullback as well? I thought I remember someone saying that.

    I can't tell if you are joking, or if you actually are telling us the Vikings will be taking Owen Schmitt. Do you seriously think the Vikings are going to take a fullback just because you saw it on some mocks?

    Don't get me wrong, I love Schmitt, but mock drafts are never anything more than entertainment.
    Not sure if you realize this but Sheepdog wasn't the topic starter....

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!
