    In a surprise move by Spielman the Vikings take an unknown with their 3rd draft pick. Spielman was quoted as saying "It might have been a bit of a reach at #3 but we are being patient and building for the future. ".

    You seem to be working harder to get him a fat paycheck than his agent.

    I think we can get him in the third... but then again, Cook and TJ were supposed to go in the 6th and 7th, so reaching at 3 for this guy would make sense for us..

    No. In fact it doesn't matter much to me which of the three they take or if they trade but it apparently gets lots of panties in a bunch if you don't buy into the RK hype so I just go there.

    With Chris Carr coming here along with Cook being back on the team, us signing Bowman, still having Asher Allen and Winfield around, i think it is becoming much less likely that we pick Claiborne..

    I really hope we take Kalil because we need him and he is going to be a beast.. Lets do this!

    I agree Nodak... I have no idea why ppl keep saying that... it makes no sense.. We lost 9 games by 7 points... and we got blown out by 40 points in like 3 games... Half of those close games we lost we were getting blowed out in the first half when teams just wanted to run the clock out...

    We are a LONG way away...

    Plus we gave up the fifth most sacks last year.... with mobile QB's.... unacceptable... take Khalil

    And we don't hear, "Last year we won 1 game by more than 7 points."

    well scarcely a revelation, any team can consider a trade at any time - thats the nature of the beast.

    Bottom line is that whatver the Vikes do or don't do in terms of a trade or who they pick/don't pick - then someone on this board is going to be bitching and moaning from now until next years draft
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Only until next year?

    Hell, there are those that are still bitching about draft picks we made over 5 years ago that are no longer on the team.
