    Is considered a major crime in most States. Its what happened to Edward Norton in the shower in American History X. Its what happened to the little boy in The Prince of Tides. "Honey Dont" should be playing in the Vikings draft room. Gloria Allred should be called in to represent the Vikings. Its what Robert DeNiro did to that woman in Cape Fear. Or Once Upon a Time in America. The Vikings will be walking funny for a very long time.

    History will tell, Hoping the Pats grab one of Woods/Hunter/Patton in the 2nd.

    All depends what is done with those picks.

    The 7th rounder has a good chance of not even making the team.

    Our 1st was swapped for the 2nd.


    So all we really got was a 3rd and 4th, in an already weak draft class.

    I'm just still wondering who the Pats were gonna get at #29 that was gonna come in and make this immediate impact that would have been the extra push to win the SB.

    It's not a 'weak draft', it's a 'flat' draft. Picks in the later rounds have more relative value than normal, which is why, once again, our hero Bill Belichick has made good. Minnesota's 'regime' has one last chance to make good themselves, and were willing to sell out for it (to our benefit).

    Rd.1 is done, and arguably the best LB and QB and RB and WR and ... are all still available. Long Live the King.

    This is a fantastic trade. Sylvester Williams was probably the only player that I think we could have considered taking that could even potentially be there. The sweet spot of this draft is Round 2 through 4. Now lets hit big and get some difference makers on Day 2! They say there are very few starters in this draft, mostly a depth draft.

    You don't think a single WR in the draft would start on this team? Because by falling down to #52 we are allowing other teams to take impact WRs.

    if Peterson turns out to be a good #1 WR then the Vikings may have had the best Draft out of every one they got a starting CB a DT that may turn out to be a pro bowler and a play maker at WR, the trade works out good for the pats yes becase they need it more picks but right now on paper the Vikings had a good Draft they filled all there needs

    It's all relative. Could Patterson start here? Of course. But so can quite a few other WRs that will be available in the 2nd.

    I think you mean Patterson. And he might be alright for the vikings, and that simplistic O. But dude was not going to make it with the Pats, that is for god damn sure.

    It all depends what we do with the picks we received. If we waste them like we did with the likes of T. Wilson, RI Dowling, and J. Bequette we will be wishing we had used that 1st on Patterson or Elam. If we turn a few of those picks into quality players then it is a great trade.

    It won't matter much if BB drafts this year's Chad Jackson, Darius Butler, Bethel Johnson and Maroney. He still needs to to pick wise...

    Dude.

    The Vikings's 1st Round was HISTORICALLY Hideous:

    1 ~ DT Sharrif Floyd ~ VASTLY OverRated. Day 3 Pick.

    2 ~ CB Xaviar Rhodes ~ Solid Corner, but OverRated. Day 2 Pick.

    3 ~ SE Cord Patterson ~ Psycho. Lottery Ticket best Picked in Round 4.

    Best left to ANOTHER Team, in fact..

    ...and they traded us a MINT for'm. :eek:

    They could've built a DYNASTY with those 6...PICKS. :snob:

    Cool story bro. But no one in there right mind is comparing Patterson with Moss. And your red herring of Dennard and Sapp comparison makes no sense.


    Patterson is a cool dude. But dude has a better chance of making it with the Vikes then with the Pats.

    Can somebody please point out that "It depends on what we do with the Picks."??

    That's a really important Point that certainly doesn't go without saying.

    Thanks.

    I don't care about accumulating picks anymore. I'd rather them target impact players than trying to maximize value with every pick. We need an impact player or two to get us over the hump, not jags that fill the bottom half of our roster.

    OTG. Who would you have taken with those 3 picks instead? I think this will be valuable to look at in hindsight.

    I wanted Justin Hunter....thought he could eventually start
    would be VERY happy with Markus Wheaton though....just not sure he'll fall to 52
    wish we had gotten a pick around 40

    It's a lot easier to find three starters in a draft, period, when you miss the playoffs than when you're making the AFCCG on an almost annual basis.
