Rather than do my own list, I'll just comment on your projections.
At WR, Lestar Jean isn't much to write home about. I think the battle for the 5th WR spot (assuming there are only 5) comes down...

2014 Combine workout: Jerick McKinnon - NFL Videos
I am pretty excited about this kid. Option QB or not, he ran for over 1800 yards in 2012. If he can catch the ball (combine workout looks like...

Glad you aren't my sports prognosticator of choice :p

You are wrong. Cassel will start, unless Bridgewater absolutely blows the coaches away. Bridgewater will sit this entire season barring an injury or the Vikings completely being out of the playoff...
Trade backs are good....if you can get them.
At #8, the one guy I want above all others is Mack. I'll also be very happy with Watkins or Evans, as I see putting one of them, Patterson, Jennings,...

Tarkenton's endorsement of Manziel was kind of two sided:
And as NFL clubs evaluate not only the former Texas A&M star's game film, but his maturity as well, Tarkenton isn't quite sure what...

And ignorant to boot....

Ummm.. Andy Dalton and Russell Wilson came out of that draft as well.

Keep in mind the Vikings will only be playing outdoors at home for the next two seasons, and the guy we draft this season almost certainly won't be playing at all this year, and maybe not next. As...

I wonder how many of the college QBs you can say that about.
For instance, even though he tends to make a lot of big plays, in my mind Manziel gets rattled easily. He tends to leave the pocket at...

Well, except for a guy named Johnny Unitas...
Maybe. Have you mocked/seen first round mocks that show where all the 1st round LTs are projected to go? Depending on who the Rams might be targeting, they can probably wait until their pick at #13...
And for all the pimping they received, Smith dropped into the 2nd round and Barkley dropped into the 4th (and looked horrid when he was forced in to play).
True dat...we passed on Marcus Allen in favor of Darrin Nelson, and passed on Warren Sapp and took (I think) Derrick Alexander. Then again, we didn't pass on Adrian Peterson, Randy Moss, and Percy...
That's your opinion. I think Manziel has the biggest bust potential of any of the "big name" QBs in this draft. I'd bet a lot of the stuff he got away with in college won't work in the pros where...

I really think this was the OP's point...the Vikings big board. The Vikings really don't need an OT, unless you could play that OT at LG, or move Kalil to LG and play the OT at LT. It's the board...
I seriously doubt anyone will take Savage in the 3rd or 4th round. 5th or later is much more likely.
I guess I should read more of your posts, but my guess is YOU are sold on Manziel (you are letting your bias show...)
Maybe you should have said "If Spielman/Zimmer are sold on one of the QBs, you...
Actually, I thought there was probably zero chance the Bucs would draft a QB at #7 anyway. Glennon wasn't exactly chopped liver last season, and none of the QBs in this draft are the next Andrew...
Longshot to make the team. Camp body as far as I'm concerned, unless the Vikings think Simpson may get suspended for a few games.

Actually, no, I'm not agreeing with you. (Nothing personal).
Number one - if presented with the mock you showed, I might very well decide to take WR Mike Evans at #8. Even with Cassel slinging...

Sure. Why wouldn't the Vikings want Bridgewater instead of the "full of flags" Manziel? And in either case, if they could trade back, why wouldn't they? After #8, no one is going to be looking at...

I made a ton of bad drafts before I finally had one I liked. Wanted a blue chipper at #8 and wanted to wait to take Garoppolo in the early 3rd, but he kept getting picked right before our pick. ...
04-09-2014, 04:35 AM
Depending on who falls to #8, not sure I want to take a QB there.
I do not want Manziel, though if the Vikings take him I will root like hell for him to be successful.
Not wild about...
