Not happy with the trade, but Floyd/Rhodes/Patterson is a hell of a talent infusion.

They gave up a lot but you cannot question the haul of players they got. Can't wait for September. MLB is still a big hole but maybe they go FA to fill that spot.

We still have a 4th round pick. We can easily get a MLB in the 4th round that can start I think.. What about a Nico Johnson of Bama. Only 1 MLB has been taken so far and thats Ogletree. Clearly they are gonna slide and some might slide to us in the 4th.

I really liked what you did today, but I would've loved it if you picked Geno. CP is great, but he isn't a QB.

Anyway, good job. I'm scared of the Vikings, lol.

That was a sweet 1st round. 2 immediate impact guys in Floyd & Rhodes; & a solid "potential" guy in Patterson.

So happy.

The only downside is that we don't get to watch the Vikings draft tomorrow! :)

That downside is a positive for me.. Got to work a college baseball game and I was potentially going to miss parts of the 2nd round so now I dont have to worry as much.

Does Patterson wear 84?

Wow, that first round is something. Gave up a lot to get back into Round 1, but I'd rather have them take Patterson than Te'o. Didn't think Floyd or Rhodes would be there for their other two picks. Good for you Rick Spielman.

Geno at 29 instead of Patterson. What would your reaction have been?

I forgot Floyd was the 4th best recruit in the country, 2010.

I would have been pissed. But there was no way they would take a QB this early. They have a lot of trust in Ponder.

Also my reaction of tonight:

That went better than expected. All of them have the potential to be difference makers.

That's for sure. I'll admit I haven't always been the biggest fan of Patterson. I've said before he scares me to death and its all based off of little college production and how they question his maturity and if he is capable to run routes but if he can come in and play similar to Percy where we just try to find ways to get the ball in his hands he should be able to make impact right away even on special teams. Can't wait til Round 4 to see where we go next. Just really glad we didn't give up next years first to get back into the 1st.

I have a feeling trading next years 1st for a second to grab Manti Te'o just may happen so we might not have to wait for round 4. I would prefer to hold on to the future first and sign Urlacher on the cheap to compete with Audie Cole.

I don't see us doing anything tomorrow. I still feel there's a lot of talent that's going to be there in the 4th round for a MLB. We have had luck in the 4th round in the past under Spielman.

2012: Jarius Wright (118th Pick)
2011: Christian Ballard (106th Pick)
2010: Everson Griffen (100th Pick)
2009: No 4th round selection
2008: No 4th round selection
2007: Brian Robison (102nd Pick)

We pick at 120 in the 4th round.

I think the pick will be G or LB and there should be some good ones left by the time we pick.

Am I the only one who isn't a huge fan of the Vikings trading back into the first to pick a boom/ bust type of player? I think they gave up a lot in this deep of draft to pick him up. I would have rather waited to pick up Woods or Hunter. But I guess that is just me.

I should also note that I am extremely happy that Floyd fell to us. Can't wait to see what him and Rhodes can do for our Defense.

I should also note that I am extremely happy that Floyd fell to us. Can't wait to see what him and Rhodes can do for our Defense.
You are not the only one who isn't a fan of the trade. I have read quite a bit how the Vikings gave up too much, I disagree. Patterson could very easily end up being the best WR from this draft. I love taking the risk. The staff must be confident they can coach him up and I say go for it. He will return kicks as well which fills that need. Guy is electric with the ball in his hands and I think playing next to Jennings and with teams fearing AD he will be a really nice player. With so many picks a trade up at some point was likely and when we traded into the first I thought we were giving up a high future pick so I am happy that isn't the case. Shows the Vikings are confident in Cole and the Guards because I think MLB or G would be the pick but regardless I think a starter at one of those positions can be had in the 4th and hell maybe even 5th.

I'm so pumped at what Spielman and the rest were able to do last night. Floyd at 23 was an absolute steal. I thought 3 would have been early for him, but 23 is way, way too low for him. Another thing to keep in mind is a lot of GMs would have been tempted to move up for him if he was so high on their board and filled a huge need, but Spielman stayed patient and let him fall to them, allowing him to move up to 29.

I said last night that the two guys I wanted the most were Xavier Rhodes and Arthur Brown, but I never expected Floyd to fall anywhere close to 23. In every mock I did, he never made it past 14. I've loved Rhodes for a long time, and think he's a perfect fit opposite Cook giving the Vikes two huge corners to match up against the other big receivers they'll face twice a year in Megatron, Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, and Jordy Nelson.

I wasn't and am still not a huge fan of Patterson, and don't love the trade up, but the guy has all the potential in the world and just a month ago, he seemed a lock to be gone by 23, so I can't hate the pick. They'll likely have to keep it simple with him at the start, use him on returns, screens, end-arounds, etc. to get the ball into his hands and then work him into the offense as a typical receiver, but with an elite route runner like Jennings, they didn't necessarily need the guy they drafted to be great at that. I'm just glad they didn't give up all of that to draft Te'o like many were expecting. When I heard what they gave up and the speculation of Te'o, I immediately asked "what the hell are they going to do for a receiver now? Wait until the 4th or use a pick next year to move back up to get one?" So hearing Patterson's name announced was a weight off my shoulders.

The only downside as you guys pointed out is it will be a boring night from a Vikings fan perspective, but you won't be hearing any complaints from me on the first round choices.

All hail, Spielman!!!
