Matbe, but I think Blackmon is the guy they're really targeting, and he'd be gone by six, so if they want him they have to trade back up.

Every mock draft has Kalil going to the Vikings at #3, it's almost as set in stone as Luck and Griffin. The Browns are going to be in on Blackmon but would likely gladly trade down with the Rams (and probably trade down once or twice more after) in order to stock up on picks in the early-to-mid second round.

The line was a problem, and it is getting a massive overhaul. Both guards are gone (Hutchinson, Herrera) and the LT is likely to move inside to guard. Kalil will be the pick. The Vikes moving to 6 in a 5-player draft (Luck, RG3, Kalil, Blackmon, Claiborne) does no good.

redskins should have traded with the Packers for Matt Flynn. trading that much for a rookie will go down with diktas bonehead move and the vikings trading everything in MN to the cowboys.

Packers let Flynn go as a FA. Didn't even have to trade for him.

So they don't want to protect AP by drafting the best possible tackle? I have yet to see anyone espouse the benefits of Claiborne or Blackmon when your O-line currently consists of a decent to good center, two new guards and two crappy tackles. Work on the secondary in the second to the fourth.

The quarterback position certainly didn't help the receivers look better. A solid offensive line is a better investment, in my opinion, than a receiver who may or may not be the real deal (Michael Crabtree comes to mind). Harvin is a good slot guy, and miscellaneous waiver wire pickups on the outsides will suffice this year. The Vikings aren't going anywhere in the next season, so we might as well build up the core of the team before we add weapons.

/lest I leave out TE Kyle Rudolph, who deserves a larger role in the offense and can play on the outsides a bit

I do wonder what the Browns plan will be in the end. They have two first rounders but could definitely start stockpiling if they wanted to. WR is one of their multiple holes but probably the most glaring (as they were getting no separation). They have to surround Peyton with someone to throw to unless they want to go 2 TE all the time.

AD is done as an elite back. He won't be the same this year after the injury (usually a full year recovery time), and after this season he'll have lost too much tread on the tires.

He can still be productive, but don't expect to see the same AD ever again.

Although all signs point to positive on his recovery, I'm not betting on him to be a top 3 guy until 2014 but when you've plunked down $36MM in guarantees to him and you're on the hook for six more years, it would behoove you to get him and your young QB some protection. That or accept your status as the Cleveland Browns of the NFC for the foreseeable future.

The wide receiver situation should vastly improve this year if we can get our #1 guy either through free agency or the draft. Assuming they get Blackmon/Wright/Floyd/Free Agent, their WR depth would go

1: New Guy
2: Greg Little
3: Josh Cribbs
4: Probably Jordan Norwood

That's actually not too shabby. I'm hoping they don't ignore the offensive line again this year, otherwise whichever QB we end up starting is going to be running for his life all year.

No shocker here. They need OL and Kalil probably won't last til 6.

Unless RGIII has the football smarts of Peyton Manning combined with the movement of Cam Newton, this is looking more and more like a lopsided trade in favor of the Rams

Oh come on, Cam Newton doesn't hold a candle to RG3 in terms of mobility.

Newton is MUCH bigger and can take hits, ala Big Ben, but he's not nearly as fast as people claim. Andrew Luck is closer to Newton than Newton is to RGIII.

Vikings won't compete next year and it's easier to find a great WR than it is an O-Lineman, so take the O-Line this year and WR next year.

Fair enough. I don't really follow college ball that much and keep hearing about RG3s freakish abilities so I assumed...I guess throw in the movement of Vick instead and use that for my analogy

Little got better as the year went on. Still managed to finish with just over 700 yards. Not impressive unless you also take into account that he was still the team's leading receiver by almost 200 yards. If the team, as a whole, can actually figure out the WCO after having a full offseason to learn it, I don't see why Little can't be a 1,000 yard, 8 TD per year receiver. He's not a #1, but he'll be a damn good #2.

I wouldn't put all the blame on Little yet. Dropped passes seemed to be an issue with the entire receiving corps last year which couldn't point as much to bad coaching as it does to a lack of talent on the part of our receivers.

I thought flynn was still with GB?

And most of the picks the vikings gave up didn't amount to much, I think emmitt and maybe an o lineman stuck around, or even a d-back.

Still let's not act like they gave up 10 all-pros for one guy, the biggest problem was the vikes GM wanted him but the coaching staff never wanted him so didn't teach him much about the offense. Its a shame since Herschel still was pretty decent at that time but if you don't get the opportunity it doesn't matter, it was a classic pissing match between management and coaching.

The problem is the RGIII is small, it worries me how much he will.get punished in the nfl, cam had gotten hit already by guys who were going to be in the nfl since him and teebow were in the sec.

Sorry big12 but they do hit harder and play more defense in the sec but then every conference does.

Herschel Walker was mostly a between-the-tackles power guy with a pretty good burst through the hole. The Vikings weren't really set up to run like that. It didn't matter if he knew the offense or not. He didn't fit well in it. The end. The front office guys should have listened to the coaches, or fired them and revamped the O-line to look more like what the Cowboys had.

Oh I agree the team wasnt set up for him but he had more than just straight ahead speed, once he got the blocking to bounce outside he had a burst to get up and go, the bottom line was it was a power struggle between the coaches and front office, the owner should have flexed their muscle to either make them get along or fire both.

I didn't make any claims. I'm just saying he's quite gifted athletically. Someone mentioned 40 times and that Cam isn't really blazing fast so I posted that.

RG3 is going to be a winner, and an even bigger marketing phenomenon. He has oodles of personality, is smart, and will be a bigger presence than Luck. RG3 is more NFL ready from the star quality standpoint.

Know how I know you don't watch Vikings games?

Ponder/Webb can't properly throw if they are running for their lives every play. Does Kalil solve all our problems? No. Is he part 3 of 5? Yep. Sullivan is a solid center and Loadholt is in a contract year. Add Kahlil and you have 3 solid pieces. More importantly you have the tackle spots dealt with.

Barely 8 games in the jury is still I. Give the kid some protection and pray he stops throwing those 10 yard out routes he's convinced he can make and BOOM, we got QB. Or let Webb do his thing. Somehow thinking that RG3 is the answer 100% for sure is kind of a spaztastic take.

Now having the 2nd and getting upmteen pics for it would definitely have been solid.

Jim from Saint Paul: regindyn: tweek46420: digistil: tweek46420: Autarky: myinternetname: Minnesota: draft the offensive lineman, you nitwits

please be the owner's son or something

/facepalming vikings fan due to winning in washington and losing the 2nd overall

what would the #2 pick do for us? both the "projected" #1 and #2 picks are QB's and we do not need to draft another QB, so I don't see how that is that much of a facepalm

/can anyone really be that dense?

i guess i must be....so please enlighten me on how the #2 pick would of changed anything

They could trade it for a king's ransom, just like the Rams did.

Sorry, honestly thought you were some how trolling. What the Rams just got? That could have been the Vikings.

Harry_Seldon: InferiousX: Unless RGIII has the football smarts of Peyton Manning combined with the movement of Cam Newton, this is looking more and more like a lopsided trade in favor of the Rams

Assuming the Colts take Luck. It does not seem to be an obvious choice.

Fans are always convinced their mediocre qbs just need time to develop. It's never good when a young QB regresses as the year goes on.

Look at his last 4 games, 4 TDs, 5 ints, 51 rating

Look at the last 4 rookie/first starting games of other QBs who have become great like Peyton & Big Ben & Rodgers. Rating usually improves as they go.

Not saying it can't happen, but usually when a QB has some early success and then tanks it's because defenses caught up and the guy will never be a top of the line QB.

Jim from Saint Paul: Dr J Zoidberg: What I want to know is when the Vikings suddenly became set on taking an OT as opposed to a WR? The line wasn't a glaring problem last year, the receiving core was

Know how I know you don't watch Vikings games?

Ponder/Webb can't properly throw if they are running for their lives every play. Does Kalil solve all our problems? No. Is he part 3 of 5? Yep. Sullivan is a solid center and Loadholt is in a contract year. Add Kahlil and you have 3 solid pieces. More importantly you have the tackle spots dealt with.


I agree we need lineman, I also don't think even if you have good lineman if 2 of your top 3 receivers on the depth chart are Camarillo and Aromashadu.
