1. Eben Britton OT Arizona:
If I'm stuck watching another year of Ryan Cook getting called for dumb penalty after dumb penalty, I will personally fly down to Minnesota and castrate everyone in the Vikings organization. I don't care if you're the owner, head coach, middle management, or a part time concession stand worker who works that job just because they enjoy being surrounded by the musk of beer, vomit, urine, and nacho cheese. Britton can come in and help fill the void on the right side of the line. Hell, Stevie Wonder could go offsides less than Ryan Cook on any given Sunday.

2. Trevard Lindley CB Kentucky:
This may be somewhat of a biased selection because I'm a Kentucky fan but I've watched enough games to see that he really has the potential to be a big time corner. Not only does he have the ability to make huge plays, but he can shut down a teams #1 receiver as well. He doesn't get as much hype as some other guys because Kentucky has been horrid as of late, but he has first round potential. He can step in and be our #2 corner right away and put Cedric Griffin at our #3 where he would be a much better fit anyways.

3. Fili Moala DT USC:
Pat Williams is getting up there in age and his career will likely be coming to an end in the upcoming years, so we will need to groom a replacement for him in the meantime. So why not obtain one of those notorious Hawaiian USC players to stuff up the middle for us. He would be good value for this pick.

4. Jordan Shipley WR Texas
I am completely reluctant of having the Vikings draft any more project receivers after the whole Troy Williamson fiasco. So I like the fact that you know what you're getting with Jordan Shipley. He's a very good slot receiver who's quick and has great hands. He'll be a great compliment to to Berrian and Sidney Rice and could be an option in the return game.

5. Chase Daniel QB Missouri
I feel like if we are going to address the QB position, I'd rather have it be done through free agency or trade so that we have someone with some NFL experience, because we need somebody who is proven and could possibly lead us to a Super Bowl. Daniel is a good late round QB who is only dropping down this far due to his inferior size. He has all of the production you look from in a college quarterback and would be an ideal pick at this point in the draft.

6. Dicky Lyons Jr. WR Kentucky
OK, so Lyons is another Kentucky player but getting him this late would be steal. Lyons suffered a pretty serious knee injury partway through this season, which is the only reason he will stick around to the later part of the draft. He doesn't have remarkable timed speed, but he's extremely quick, has great hands, and runs very nice patterns. He's also a great team player and like Shipley, could even contribute to the return game as well.

7. Devin Moore RB/KR Wyoming
Considering we have absolutely no need to draft a runningback in next years draft, this is strictly just to improve upon our return game. We haven't had a legitimate home run threat returning kickoffs since Koren Robinson, and ever since then it has been extremely lackluster. Between watching Troy Williamson and Maurice Hicks return kicks, among countless others, I've been shocked and appalled by our inability to even get it to the 25 yard line on a consistent basis. This would be a step in the positive direction towards improving what I think is the most god awful special teams unit in the history of mankind.

I just feel that we have too much money invested in Shiancoe to spend a high pick on a tight end and the value at the bottom of the draft for a tight end is fairly minimal.

1) P. Harvin w.r./r.b. florida
explosive all around offensive weapon...would be dynamic in the slot with the potential to be a very good #2 down the road...can line up at r.b. 4-8 times per game or so and give you guys a nice change of pace/ 3rd and long back...runs the ever popular wildcat extremely well and can be an elite return guy.

2) D.J. Moore c.b. vandy
atheletic playmaker with tremendous ball skills and hands is an excellent compliment to winfield...dynamic return guy and can even line up at w.r. to give you a lil help there....great value here.

3) F. Tupuo r.t. oregon
physical r.t. will try and get the right side as formidable as the left side...if thats possible....fills a need at great value.

Harvin? Really?

Drafting Harvin makes no sense to me. We could really use a Tackle or C more than a WR. We could draft a great T where we're at because the crop is deep this year.

03-06-2009, 04:59 PM
I agree, other than Harvin would be a great returner, but you don't use a first round pick just for a returner. I do like the 2nd and 3rd round picks a lot though.

I wouldn't say Harvin is just a returner. Some draft gurus have been raving about his pro day. I don't know why a lot of people seem to hate on him but he could be a very explosive weapon for a number of years. Percy and AD would be a nightmare to game plan for.

Everyone assumes that he can be a great return man but why? There is no proven tape on it. He never returned a kick in College. He has a bad character and didnt play in a pro style offense so it will take him a while to learn a system. I personally don't like Harvin. He is not what we need in a Wide Receiver.

If we go Wide out I hope its Nicks or Robiskie(not in the 1st though).

I totally agree. I stated the same thing in the draft thread. Crabtree and Maclin are the only WRs I feel are first rounders. Not a fan of Harvin or DHB at all.

The only way that harvin can get involved in the offense imo is on screens, reverses, deep passes, etc. I don't think he will be a traditional receiver who can be a #1, at best I see him as a Devin Hester type, a guy who can take some screens to the house, but isn't going to be a #1 threat.

04-04-2009, 02:15 PM
I love those 2nd and 3rd round picks though. I really like Macho in our system. He's a very confident player that will really fit in at the next level. He could also boost the return game if needed. The WR's are a weird spot this year because some people have Robiskie gone by the time we pick in round 2. I know its impossible but I'd love if somehow we could go Oher, Nicks, Macho. I guess that would be just perfect.

marshallb
04-04-2009, 05:11 PM
If that Vikings draft would happen, I'd probably **** myself, about the only thing that we don't get is some depth at S and LB. Oher would be amazing, Robiskie is pretty good, Macho is an excellent fit in our system and is a good value, but could very well be there. I love Baker, but am pretty sure he will go in the 3rd or 4th. Fiammetta would be good since Tahi is terrible, and Wallace is an excellent KR, but will likely be gone by then.

It looks pretty good, I love Smith, Loadholt would be an excellent fit for us. I am not a fan of Iglesias though. I just see his best case scenario as a slot receiver, and there'll be guys available there that have more upside. Coffman is good as is Taylor. Foster is a good value and can be a returner and ST, and Southerland would be an upgrade over Tahi.

Yeah, Ive been working on a 1st round draft and I had a way for Oher to fall but lately I just cant see it happening. After seeing Childress talk to Fran Charles of the NFLN at the USC Pro day I feel that we will be going a WR in the 1st round even though Childress wont do 1st round QB's. Right Now my gut is saying Kenny Britt.

I would love to have Dan Williams at 30 but I'm starting to wonder if he will be there to draft. I'm really expecting the Vikings to draft McCourtey.. We were liking him back in the Combine according to reports and not only he good DB prospect but in College he was a hell of a special teams player so he has versatility which it seems like Childress loves.

I think there is a pretty decent chance Dan Williams will be available for the Vikings. I think he is going to be a 20's pick but there really isn't too many teams in that range that need DW greatly. The only one I would be worried about is the Chargers, but if Ryan Matthews is on the board I see them going with him over williams. Other than that the only thing that would worry me would be a 3-4 team trading up from the early 2nd to get Dan Williams.

I agree on Devin McCourty as the process goes on, he seems to definatly be one of the strong favorites to be the Vikings #1 pick.

Overall, I'd be very happy with that. There are a few things I'd like to see changed though. I like the attention to the secondary early and am a fan of both players. I'm a big fan of Johnson, and I think Curran could do real well in our system. I don't know anything about Harewood, but he looks like a big boy who appears to be athletic and versatile, and we can always use depth on the o-line. I like Austen Lane and would be fine with that pick even though DE isn't really a need. I don't see a need for WR though, but I guess it's the 6th round and maybe he could help out on STs. I'd be fine with Smith, but I'd like to see us address QB earlier than that.

I definitely think we could use a NT in this draft and would like to see one in there somewhere, definitely over Blair White, but I think we'd be fine with who we have if we were to not draft one in this draft.

Harewood is a lesser known small school prospect. Big guy and from the small bit I have read is surprisingly athletic for his size(he also plays Rugby) and has some potential for LT in the NFL. The reason I like him to the Vikings so much is simply that Rick Spielman himself decided to go to this guy's pro day.

DE isn't really a need now but I don't see both Robison and Ray Edwards being with the team long term so there will be an opening at #2 spot. So I can see them taking one with a late round pick this year to come in and compete with Jayme Mitchell for the #5 spot on the team this year. Eventually next season he could end up being the LDE backup.

As for WR with Darius Reynaud moving to RB that leaves the #5 slot open. Jaymar Johnson has good reviews but bring a guy in to compete with him wouldn't be a bad idea.

As for NT we need a future starter not depth if we don't get one in the first 2 rounds I personally don't think they need to make sure they get one.

Similar deal with QB if you don't get one in the first round no need to address it earlier than the late rounds. As there is about a 3% chance of grabing a guy that will amount to anything more than a Solid backup.

I sort of agree as well. I don't think the pick will be shocking surprise but the Vikings have always gone BPA in the past couple years. We had bigger needs than Adrian and Percy. But I expect Devin McCourty or Dan Williams but you can never be sure. There aren't a lot of players that will make me go wtf on draft day if we draft them. Pretty much the only one is Tebow. If we take him in the 2nd I'd be sort of meh about it. I wouldn't be happy but I wouldn't be going crazy about it.

That would be a very good draft, but I'm doubting Saffold will be there at the end of Round 2 and Jones would be there at the end of Round 3.

I'll also add that I really like Edds in the 5th and Starks in the 6th. Starks has more raw talent than Young/Johnson IMO and could make a push for the backup job his rookie year. I think that would be great value - assuming his health checks out.

We add a lot of talent there, and I don't think several of those players will be there then, and while I'd like that mock, I wouldn't love it. McCourty's a great pick, same goes for Saffold(although I don't think he'll be there), Jones is ok, I see him more of as an UT or 5 tech, but he'd be ok(but again I don't think he'll be there), interesting pick with AOA after going with McCourty, he's capable of playing S, but I'd rather have a true S(again don't think he'll be there), Edds would be a great pick in the 5th(but again I don't think he'll be there), we also have a comp 5th, and then Starks would be a good pick, not sure we'll go RB, as the team seems pretty happy with what we have, but I'd like it as I like Starks(again, I'm thinking he'll probably be gone), and Hoomanwanui would be a good pick as a blocking TE(but I think he'll be gone).

I know my value probably isn't gonna be right for how they all go, but I've got McCourty as late 1st-early 2nd, Saffold as early-mid 2nd, Jones as mid 3rd, AOA as late 3rd-early 4th, Edds as a 4th, Starks as a early 4th-late 5th, and then Hoomanawanui as a 5th-6th.

I'd like to see us go NT, and a true S in there somewhere, as well as possibly QB. Like I said, we also have a comp 5th, so you missed 1 pick.

Sorry Zod, we got no shot at that one, even though I would love it.

Yeah I forgot about our comp. pick.

So what your saying is more that the picks wont be there vs them being bad picks?
I thought my Rodger Saffold pick was a bit of a homer pick, you really think he wont be there for us in the 2nd?

Thanks for the comments btw.

I think Saffold will go in the early to mid 2nd with an outside chance of going 31 to the Colts. I like most of those picks, it's just I don't think they'll be there. A couple of the picks I'm not a fan of, mostly the Arthur Jones one, although I do like him, just not really for us. A couple of the other ones are just where I'd rather fill another position, such as over RB and TE, but with that value you'd really have to think.

Here is my go round at a Vikings mock, it's nothing special, but very solid, filling needs in the present with an eye on the future. I know quite a few of you won't like some picks, but I know a lot of people weren't happy last year when we took Harvin over Oher, but that turned out quite well, especially after getting Loadholt in the 2nd.

1.30: Colt McCoy QB Texas(this is one I know a lot people won't like)

2.62: Chris Cook DB Virginia

5.161: Robert Johnson S Utah

To be honest, I'd rather have Tebow than McCoy. And I'd want neither in the 1st round. Rest of your mock I like Marshall, especially Brown in the 7th and Johnson in the 3rd.

I'll have to disagree, I think Colt McCoy is a legitimate early 2nd round pick, and we're picking in the real late first, so that's not a big reach, especially for QB. I don't see much of a reason why Colt McCoy can't succeed in the NFL, especially for us, he's perfect for the West Coast and we would have great weapons around him. The knocks on him are: size, arm strength, and system. The size might be a slight hinderance with our giant tackles, but he is 6'1 1/2", which isn't huge, but has been tall enough for how many other QBs, other than that I don't see why he can't succeed, the weak arm isn't a big problem in the West Coast as it's mostly a horizontal passing game, with a few downfield throws, but his great accuracy will be perfect for the short-intermediate throws. The system shouldn't be a big problem, because we wouldn't be forcing him out there right away with Brett possibly coming back and if not T-Jack and/or Sage should be good enough this year to hold down the fort.

I see no reason to rather have Tebow, especially for us, but I guess that is a matter of opinion. I knew that the Colt McCoy pick would get very little love, but it's a pick I can see happening, especially with the depth at CB, and one that I would like.

The Antonio Brown pick was one that I had a bit of a question in making with: would he go earlier, and I think there's a decent chance he could go before that, but there is also so much solid depth at WR this year that I can see him falling. One of my favorite picks was the Hardy one, for some reason I just love him, I don't know why, but he's just a beast on the field and while he has injury concerns as well as character concerns, I think his talent outweighs the risk in the 4th round. I also think that we have a strong enough locker room that his charater concerns can be limited and muted. I don't think DE is a big need for us, this year I think it's almost a non need, but we do have to look ahead, especially with Edwards not sounding too happy about being a RFA and not getting a long term deal.

If you check out my mock in the mock draft forum, then you'll see the biggest reason why Colt McCoy was my pick there.

Obviously there is a chance they go QB in rd 1 but I don't think it is a very high probablity unless Clausen falls. I think they look for a player that can help to make a superbowl push this year. I disagree Colt is a legit early 2nd round pick, he is a mid - late 2nd round prospect that will get pushed up the board due to positional value/teams in desperate need of a QB. I don't see the Vikings as one of those desperate teams. If there is a QB whos value is too good not to take(Clausen) they take him but I don't think they look to take a QB.

I do not at all like the idea of drafting Colt McCoy and his noodle arm in the first round.
