  • 2008 Depth Chart Discussion

    After the draft, I am looking forward to training camp and how the summer will play out.

    WR Roy Williams
    RT Gosder Cherilus
    RG Stephen Peterman
    C Dominic Raiola
    LG Edwin Mulitalo
    LT Jeff Backus
    TE Dan Campbell
    WR Calvin Johnson
    FB Jerome Felton
    RB Kevin Smith/Tatum Bell
    QB John Kitna

    RE Dewayne White
    RDT Chuck Darby
    LDT Cory Redding
    LE Jared DeVries/ Ikaika Alama-Francis/ Cliff Avril
    SLB Paris Lenon
    MLB Jordan Dizon
    WLB Ernie Sims
    CB Leigh Bodden
    SS Dwight Smith
    FS Daniel Bullocks/Gerald Alexander
    CB Brian Kelly/ Stanley Wilson

    PR & KR Kenneth Moore

    I like our offensive line for the first time in awhile. Our WR core is pretty good, if Calvin and Roy can stay healthy.

    I like the battles at FS, DE, and CB.

    I don't know much about Ikaika Alama-Francis at DE, but he was an early pick in 2007. Any information on his development and role next year?? I'd like to hope that him and Avril can replace DeVries at DE.

        I'm actually hoping Millen and Marinelli do the sensible thing and pick up a few more guys out of the UDFA pool... I'd like Henderson, Lehman (J, not Teddy), Wesley Woodyard and John Dunbar all to at least have a shot. They could and should be better than what we have starting (Lennon) or as backups.

        Also, even with his problems, maybe Tommy Blake is worth a look.

          The Vikings signed Erin Henderson and J Leman.. but I don't think Woodyard or Dunbar have been signed by anyone.

                      WOW nice work Scotty D, I agree with EVERY pick ... but it's only April. Injuries or pregnant lady stranglings can change this roster =)

                      Don't look now but 8 of the 9 guys from our draft this year make the club and contribute.

                      Prediction --> 8-8

                      09 we make a push for a LT (finally) & CB and things get interesting. (assuming Stanton/Smith/Dizon pan out)

                        correction in 09 i see us agoing looking at MLB and keeping Dizon outside along with looking for a good DE who can play everydown. Dizon i cant see playing MLB in this offense and if we have a shot at Maluaga (Sp?) of Laurinitis i think we'll take them. Same thing for DE, unless IAF plays well and avril shows he can not only get to the QB but do decent against the run a top DE could be in our future. After that a CB also would be a good possibility. I doubt they look at LT since they could have done that this year and passed on albert which tells me they are convinced Backus can do the job.

                          I could see a LT or QB next year. Maybe a nice big DT. I'm not sure if we can get away from Pearson without it being a waste in salary. I'm not sure how much is guarenteed. I know it was a 3 year, 3.5million.

                            true, wonder if roger goodell can sneak a "good team character" conduct policy into the league by negating salary cap penalties to people charged with multiple felonies?

                              Jerome Felton is a RB, he is a p-ss poor blocker and there is no way he's our starting FB. He'll compete with Smith at RB. You are very likely to see a 3 man rotation at RB. Some combination of Bell, Smith and Cason.
                              I believe Francis will battle Darby for the starting DT spot, he's not a Cover 2 DE unless he's kept his weight below 270lbs. He was projected to increase his weight to be a 300lbser. Even then I question if a guy who runs a 4.9 40 can get the job done as a Cover 2 DE.
                              Fluellan plays the same tackle position as Redding, he's a 1 gap penatrating DT. He cannot fill Roger's role.
                              My guess is Lennon will stay in the middle and start and Lewis will start on the outside. Dizon will back up both.
                              CB -Not sure if Kelly will start full time or just backup our 2 starting CB's. It's quite possible Wilson and Fisher start. Bolden has never played in a zone defense and Kelly is far more likely to be the nickle CB. We'll just have to wait and see at CB. Alexander could also be in the mix at CB as well as Safety. He can play both.
                              After the draft I have lowered my prediction to 4 wins tops with 2 wins certainly possible.
