Re: Your Draft Predictions
Well, using the standard draft chart, a fair deal would be the #5 pick and KC's 4th round pick for our 1st, 2nd, and two 3rd round picks (1784 total points to 1785 total points).
Don't we all love hippies ;D
Free love? You bet. But like all hippies, Desean Jackson promises change, without substance. He is just a short return guy. I have read that the Chiefs at 5 want to trade down. Who could the 'Vikes grab at #5 that would make an immediate impact? The two teams have a good working relationship ie: scrimmiges and the like. Who says a trade can't be worked out before-hand, assuming the 'Vikes see a guy they want bad enough. A trade up to 5 is a distinct possibility. ???
Unless the Vikes are looking for Ryan, Ellis or McFadden jumping to 5 seems to be too big a jump and will be pricy
Well, the team does have that very crucial extra 3rd rnd pick. That alone gives the team some wiggle room. also, a FO guy said something like the team may have some moves planned for the draft. I still think a swap with the Chiefs makes some sense. Alot of mocks have Ryan going there, if the chiefs do not get out of the picks. Maybe the 'Vikes just might swap for the guy? It's fun to theorize. Just getting real excited about it.
Using the new chart provided by profootballtalk.com, a fair deal would be the #5 pick for our 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th round picks (880 total points to 883 total points).
Using my own modified version of the top of the draft chart (as explained here), a fair trade would be the #5 pick for our 1st and 2nd round picks, along with our second 3rd round pick (1550 total points to 1560 total points).
Personally, and I may be biased, I think the trade proposed by my version is the most realistic.
In my opinion, the standard chart suggests a trade that would be too costly from the Vikes perspective, while the PFT chart suggests a trade that probably wouldn't do it for the Chiefs.
