    Don't worry, he should be there in the 5th round.
    I doubt it...he is listed as one of the top ten value picks left on the board

    Re: Why Tyrell Johnson Is A Beast

    Excellent post.


    A few comments from the press conference.

    I feel like he’ll be obviously an outstanding special teams guy, and ironically, when we go through with Rick’s (Spielman) grading system, he was the 17th player on our board, ironically. Zygi (Wilf) is the guy that pointed that out up there, so that’s a little irony there.
    Anyone want to doubt that the owner now has a role in the draft?
    He is in charge of recognizing irony.
    ;D

    Q: Can he acclimate quickly and help you on defense this year?
    A: Just based on listening to him, it will be interesting to see if he’s a vocal communicator back there. In our interviews we thought he had good learn-ability and was an articulate kid that was a good communicator.
    Might eventually wear a green dot.
    I like a S who can make pre-snap adjustments.

    Q: Which safety spot do you see him filling in for? Do you see him in Darren Sharper’s spot?
    A: He’s at the safety position. Those guys go back and forth. We could put S and S and they both have to be able to do the same, identical things.
    And yet we will still have yutz's trying to fit him in as a FS or a SS.
    Someone remember this thread so I can stick that in thier eyes when they do.

    Q: Did it take much negotiating to trade up?
    A: ...........I’ll let Rick explain it to you,
    Because it was FRICKEN SPIELMAN on the phone you yutz.
    ;D

    Q: In your experience, how much time do safeties need to get on the field?
    A: Again, that will be coaching.
    Tellem Rick.
    You run the draft and the Chiller coaches them up.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Yeah I don't think there is any doubt D Sharp should be worried, this guys gonna take his job and I don't think it will take anymore than one year.

    Interesting paragrapf about his toughness:


    He did, however, put up perhaps his most impressive game to date -- a 25-tackle effort against North Texas in the November 26 regular-season finale. "A lot of people don't know that I was playing with a sprained MCL in that game. But I had to play, and I knew that I had to step up for the team so that we could get the Sun Belt Conference Championship. I just took it upon myself to step it up, kick it into overdrive and lead the team. I'm not saying that it was just me, but I knew that I had to do my part -- and a little bit more." The Indians lost the New Orleans Bowl to Southern Miss in December, but the school's first winning record in a decade meant a lot.

    That was nice to see!!
    I just got done with a heated argument between my little brother and I because he is so ticked about us not selecting Brohm and giving up our 4th rounder.
    I'll definitely have to show him this.
    He is an extreme T Jack hater and says the best we can do with him is 7 - 9 :
    I like the way this kid can shed blocks and is a ball hawk!

    Very nice job providing all that background info, VikingsTw.

    I had heard Johnson interviewed on Sirius and he was articulate and very confident. They also touted him as the top Safety in the draft. I like the pick.

    Yeah no problem, it was easy to hype this guy.

    Good to hear about his interviews hopefully at some point we get some more interviews to listen too.
