    What about something different...

    I know we need a WR and DE.
    I just do not think we can get anyone that will make a direct impact at WR w/o getting CJ.
    At DE, we have spent too many draft picks on this position.
    Has anyone seen ILB Willis?
    He ran a 4.37 40 and looks good from what I have seen.
    Much of our weakness last year against the pass was due to our MLB or giving too much time to pass.
    This is just a thought b/c I would hate to draft another DE bust.


    Addressing our need at WR, I think we need at least ONE vet on the team.
    If that be someone old, so be it.
    Moulds, Horn, or the like...I think this would be better than drafting someone high.

    The naysayers will say that we already have too much invested in our LB corps...but I still don't see a solid MLB candidate.
    Don't know enough about Willis to project him as our MLB savior though.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Re: What about something different...

    I pretty much agree. I don't see us drafting a WR at the #7 pick, nor do we need it. The Vikings will either draft a FS, LB (move up cause we could possibly get another pick), or CB. But please, no WR in the first round, that's all I ask.

    Players that could be considered at the 7th spot, or players that are considered a top 10 pick in the positions you mentioned would be-
    FS- Laron Landry
    LB- Patrick Willis
    CB- Leon Hall

    The only player out of those 3 i want would be patrick willis, but I wouldnt even take him that high.

    I mentioned that we would move up, not take some of those guys that early.

    Re: What about something different...

    there are plenty of potentially great receivers in this draft..if we cant get cj, then we should draft a LB, FS, or DE and then look to the second and 3rd rounds for a WR or TE

    I agree completely.
    LB, DE, or FS... and get a WR, OG in the later rounds

    Don't see much that is solid?
    Open your eyes.
    No one is a proven solid MLB, but that was a concern last year, too.
    Without the presence of Ted Cottrell, the LB corp did well last year.
    Perhaps the coaching will bring out the best in Greenway, Henderson and Leber this year?

    Henderson at MLB COULD work.
    Greenway at MLB COULD work, especially in passing situations, due to his cover skills.
    Davis is a backup MLB, for depth.

    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !

    The Vikings need a DT who can penetrate more than they need a DE.

    Don't you people read Del's posts?

    did well stopping the run, but nothing else..even the run stopping was more of a credit to our DT's and the fact that both scott and udeze are purely run stoppers on the end helped greatly as well

    leber was the most impressive all around linebacker last season
