  • Yahoo's Mock (Best one yet)

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slu...yhoo&type=lgns


    Well, i dont know if this is really what we need... but adding a playmaker like Adrian Peterson would make this team that much more dangerous, because right now we are feared by no one.

    "Best one" ???
    He has us passing on Landry AND Sid Rice for a TE , even though we have 3 under contract and a RB with durability problems.

    personally I hate it.

      i agree severe, no way do we pass up on a guy like Rice (who im not even that high on but still) for zach miller, especially after the money we gave shainco.

      i could see us passing on landry for AP, I think AP will be a stud, especially with us if we can get a solid guard in the 3rd if ramirez falls or grab wrotto. Having AP split some time with CT will help keep him healthier and both of them fresh, theyd make a nice combo

        I wouldn't mind Adrian Peterson, but I think Childress still has a lot of confidence in Taylor, and Childress has hinted that Mewelde Moore will be the #2 back this year.

          Awful, awful, awful....Does this guy have any kind of understanding whatsoever of what's going on with our team?

            I was mainly refering to the first round... any mock that goes beyond the first round is a complete guessing game. I agree that the writer of that article has no clue as to what any team needs are.

            I just think AP would be ideal, i agree that Childress has confidence in Taylor (so do i) i also know that two rb's are becoming a necessity in this league. AP and CHester would be a sweet 1-2 punch.

            i guess it'll all unfold in a month

              I actually don't mind Mewelde as our #2. He provides a very good receiver out of the backfield and gives us a good amount of yards after contact. IMO, we are set at RB.

                Pinner was just fine too...provided we resign him I wouldn't mind "gambling" with those 3 (and Ciatrick playing more) going into the season.
                I certainly wouldn't want to spend a 1st round pick on him when
                A: There's so many more holes that should be addressed with premier talent and
                B: the RB talent in the next 2 years is far superior AND deeper. (future back)
                Plus Chester is a very hard runner , deceptively fast and I think he can handle another 280+ carry season.

                  Point taken... however i know the one thing we need more than ANYTHING is a playmaker on the offensive side of the ball. Taylor is solid, Williamson can't catch. So i say if AD is there, take him... if not fill other needs.

                      I don't like this draft at all. AD is a great talent, but RB is one of if not the strongest position on our offense way would we need to add to it? Taylor, Moore, Pinner and Fason can get the job done they did it last season. We can't pass on a WR with the talent of Rice in the second, and I would prefer we move back into the latter portion of the 1st and get Bowe, Meachem or Jarret. If we could come out of the first day with Landry and Bowe by trading a 4th or 5th and swapping 3rds?

                        there is no way a 4th and a 5th and swaping 3rds are worth a 1st http://huddlegeeks.com/NFL_Draft/tradevalue.htm

                          I agree totally... I have not seen on any Mock the Vikings taking a RB and with Chester Taylor in the fold I don't see you bringing in another RB... I am a Huge Ravens fan and I hated to see Chester leave he was a favorite here in Baltimore...but I am glad he is starting somewhere. I would be disapointed to see him have to split carries with a rookie after having a good season last year...

                            I love the first round pick, and though we do need a tightend (we have nobody on the roster worth mention besides Kleinsasser who can't catch), we should take Rice or at least some receiver in the 2nd round. I'd love us to get AD because it would solidify our backfield.

                            Also, what better way to improve a rookie/young QB then by giving him a good tandem in the backfield to take the load off his shoulders? If we were to exchange Miller for Rice, that gives us a receiving threat as well.

                              Yeah Chester Taylor's 1300 yards and Artrose Pinner poppin out 100+ in his only start shows we need to "solidify" that position .

                              C'mon be honest, you don't even watch the games...admit it.
