    If Quinn and A PEterson are both available, take Quinn.
    TJackson isn't a proven commodity.

    If only A Peterson is there, and the top 2-3 DEs and C Johnson are gone, try trading down a few slots.
    If time runs very short while trying to deal down, take A Peterson and aggressively shop him ASAP for a top 15 pick... and more.
    Then take a WR or DE or OL in round 1.

    The 'what if our current starter is injured' game can be played with any roster spot; e.g. what if Birk is injured, what if TJackson is injured, what if KWilliams is injured....
    But, the WR position is already 'injured' until those holes are filled by capable players.
    So, the 1st draft pick should be a WR, DE, or OL, not a RB, C, LG, LT, DT, LB, TE, P, K, .....
    Thats what the undrafted guys bring you (depth) without wasting a pick.
    We brought in 16 last year.

    Re: What about a RB in the draft?

    It always is a crapshoot with injuries.
    The first year the Patriots won the SB they were riddled with injury during the regular season and did a lot of servicable patchwork.
    That would be interesting to look up and get the details on, but not interesting enough for me to spend time doing it.

    But what do I know, I don't own a magic 8 ball.
    Here ya go.
    Now you can know.
    It's official, it said "Without a Doubt."

    At first I didn't believe the 8 Ball, so I tried it again, and it said, "It's for Certain."

    Yes, we will take AP in the draft.
    Cool.
    You just made my week.

    Probably.

    Among others.

    I would guess that at a pro day of a team like Ohio State, that went to the Nat.Champ. game, there would be a lot of players that could be considered in various rounds of the draft.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Lets hope so.
    Ginn is not a #7 pick.
    I would prefer Gonzales if you can get him in a later round.
    The few Ohio State games I watched last year, he came up big.

    Yeah...I think that Gonzales has the talent to be a more successful pro than Ginn does!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    I'm not sold on Ginn either, even if he could become a stud.

    But I think there could be many scenarios. With one of them being trading down and grabbing him at a later point, if they like him enough.

    I'd also could be happy about Gonzales I think. But when I said that there were many players at Ohio St. here's just some:

    C Doug Datish 6-4/302/5.18
    OG T.J. Downing 6-4/305/-
    WR Anthony Gonzalez 6-0/193/4.50
    WR Roy Hall 6-3/240/-
    S Brandon Mitchell 6-3/205/-
    DT David Patterson 6-2/285/5.12
    DT Quinn Pitcock 6-2.5/301/4.95
    RB Antonio Pittman 5-11/207/4.38
    DE Jay Richardson 6-6/276/-
    QB Troy Smith 6-0/225/4.65

    If you look at our roster, we have Taylor, Moore, and Fiason as our RB.
    Taylor will be 28 this year and I don't think the other 2 are the answer.
    Could Chilly take and Adrian Peterson if he is there?
    If Adrian Peterson is available and Brady Quinn is not, then, yes, I think the Vikings should take him.
    However, if Quinn is available, the Vikings must select him.

    =Z=
    The voice of reason. Quinn IS the best pick at #7. We have at least 2-3 years to draft a replacement for Taylor.

    Re: What about a RB in the draft?

    Well, it all depends on which of them is better suited to play in the KickAss offense. I am not sure between A.P and B.Q which is better suited for it but whoever it is they should pick that player.


    I heard a rumor that the PoP was going to convert to a broader based OoO,which is the Omologation of omniscience. They will then experience a state of Zen and win several consecutive super bowls.
