Would the Vikings take DeSean Jackson or Reggie Smith?
Going to be a tough draft, I still think we messed up by winning games late in the year, just didn't help us at all, if we pick 8th for example we get a legit guy who probably puts us in the playoffs for real next year, as it is we are picking in the worst section of the draft where the value does not equal the cost.
I'll take winning games over draft position any day of the week.
You'd think the Head Coach that drafted him would know how well he fit the WCO when he took him. He fits exactly what Childress looks for from his QBs, he just needs to develop. Keep in mind that every WCO is different, i.e. Jackson wouldn't fit in Tampa.
Another NELSONZZZ thread.
Anyway, the biggest problem I saw with Minnesota was the pass rush. The reason they had one of the worst pass defenses was because no one ran on them and there was no pass rush, especially since James got hurt again. There are good defensive ends in free agency, so they can address the need that way. Tampa-2 teams can always find good secondary players later in the draft. Charles Godfrey could be a good fit for them in the 3rd round.
So between those two, it would be Jackson because they have to have someone to stretch the field and run after the catch.
1 DE calais campbell
2 WR jordy nelson
3 S thomas decoud/quintin demps
pass rush- check
big receiver with speed- check
im not a big fan of decoud, but apparently everyone is all over his jock so he'd probably be the best safety available on most boards. i think quintin demps would be a better fit because of his coverage ability, but whatever.
Why take either D. Jackson can't play D, and Reggie Smith can't play Offense
JORDYZZZz NElson can do it all.
If you take D. Jackson than look for Williamson to get cut, you pretty much end up having to the same guys, sometimes not bad but in this case you don't want it. Also Childress and Reid follow the same strategy so NO WR in the first unless it is JORDYZZZ NElson
