I want Bowe and I am intrigued by Garcon, hopefully it is possible to steal him for cheap

Sign me up for Marques Colston, but I doubt the Saints will let him get away.

I don't buy it that he is leaning or set to return, the guy is a redshirt junior who is about to turn 23. There obviously is a chance he will return but I think if anything he would be leaning on declaring.

My short wish list in this order with our first pick.(excluding Luck since we probably will have no shot at him.

1. Matt Kalil OT
2. Morris Claiborne CB

If these guys are gone, maybe we trade down a bit and pick up..

3. Johnathan Martin OT
4. Dre Kirkpatrick CB
5. Riley Reiff OT

Im hoping they can find a way to trade down. There are a lot of guys even in the bottom of the 1st round that could fill one of our many needs nicely.

I have a feeling we will be sitting at #3 deciding between Claiborne and Blackmon. Hopefully some team like the Browns falls in love with RGIII and wants to trade up to our slot and we can grab some picks.

Yes we are locked in at #3.

We are going to end up in a great spot for a trade if Cleveland loses(they should lose) today.

In my opinion there are only 3 guys worth drafting at #3 if we hold on to that spot. Luck, Kalil, Claiborne.

Id rather have Kalil, but would be thrilled with Claiborne.

Cleveland number 4, needs a QB.

Washington number 6, and desperately needs a QB.

Miami number 9, and could use a QB.

Seattle & KC, 11 & 12, both have needs at QB.

Would love to see Washington go all out for Griffin.

And, hey, if the Rams take advantage of a trade, that leaves Kalil for us. :)

Outstanding. And even a better person with great leadership skills.

But Im hoping for Kalil. I have sort of a man-crush on him. lol

But Claiborne wouldn't be a bad consolation.

How could minnesota pass on luck or rg3 if they are there? Ponder annd Webb are both projects Kalill will be taken by rams Cover 2 doesn't require cover corner to play zone D.this pick has to be OL or QB really it does.
1. RG3
2.OL
3. Marvin Mcnutt
4.CB

No way does Luck last to 3 (barring a major injury before the draft). Ponder has shown enough that I believe he can be a franchise QB.

1. Trade down. There are plenty of QB hungry teams behind the Vikes. If the Vikes get an offer of 2 firsts, I think they should take it, especially if Washington offers.
2. Kalil. Franchise LT, which the Vikes desperately need.
3. Claiborne. The Vikes secondary sucks. CB may be less important in the cover 2 scheme, but a talent infusion is desperately needed.

Ideal draft day would be forcing Cleveland to trade up to assure itself of Griffin, then taking Claiborne/Kalil at 4 (which ever is left), then the other position in the second, and a WR/S if Cleveland gives us another pick this year.

Second best would be trading with Washington for 1 & 3 this year, and a 1 next year. Take a Blackmon (pretty much the consensus WR1 at this point), tackle in the second, and CB & S in the third.

The News of Landry Jones staying school improves the stock of RGIII. What is everyone's thoughts of us trading down with maybe Washington and taking Blackmon at 6? I really like taking Kalil at 3, but we have many needs and would gain extra draft picks with making this move.

The trade down makes sense but I'm not sure Blackmon makes it to 6. If RG3 goes at #3 than Blackmon makes a lot of sense for Cleveland.

As long as we get some quality picks for trading down, Im all for it. Even in the mid rounds you could grab Jonathan Martin, Riley Reiff(who I like a lot), David DeCastro(who is suppose to be a Steve Hutchinson clone). And thats just for the O line men.

DB's in the mid round like Kerpatrick, Mark Barron, Janoris Jenkins(who I love also).
WRs, Blackmen will be gone, but would love to have Micheal Floyd(his health worrys me), Ajshon Jeffery, and I love Kendall Wright from Baylor.

When you have a blue chip elite prospect available at a position of highest need, which is the case for Kalil and Claiborne, we can't afford to trade down. It just doesn't make sense to pass up an elite talent for a bunch of hopefuls.

I dont know why you think Reiff Kirpatrick or Barron will be available after round 1
Lester maybe 3rd
But no way Barron last past early second
I could see RG3 going one by draft timeand the colts moving down
Ponder looked ok but definately didnt seal deal to me
Webb was more productive
We need line help bad we can fill defensi e holes with free agency
We need a franchise qb neither guy sealed deal

Blackmon reminds me of a Michael Crabtree 2.0
Top 5 WR's should have the total package... that includes field stretching ability. I'm not convinced Justin has that in the pro game.
Trade down if possible... OL/DL/CB and/or S should be our priorities in the draft IMO. Get a proven commodity at WR out of the FA pool and grab another developmental guy late in the draft. I'd put DL as a bigger desire b/c any CB will get burned over a course of a game without pressure...

It depends on how big of a difference there is between Kalil/Claiborne(not yet sold he is a true bluechip CB)and Reiff/Martin/Kirkpatrick. Which as of now is way too early to be know for sure.

Blackmon reminds me of a Michael Crabtree 2.0
Top 5 WR's should have the total package... that includes field stretching ability. I'm not convinced Justin has that in the pro game.
Trade down if possible... OL/DL/CB and/or S should be our priorities in the draft IMO. Get a proven commodity at WR out of the FA pool and grab another developmental guy late in the draft. I'd put DL as a bigger desire b/c any CB will get burned over a course of a game without pressure....
I am not sold on Blackmon as a true bluechip WR prospect, but I still really like him. I don't think he has great speed but I think he is faster than most give him credit for.

What I like though is his pysichality, he's great at breaking tackles and getting YAC, and how he fights for the ball and is able to make tough catches in traffic. All of which are important skills for the type of Offense the Vikes are trying to run.

With all that said I still prefer the option of picking up a WR from this talented class of F/As, and then selecting the best OT/DB.
