    :Looks like a guy that will sit in the practice squad.

    The last 3 picks make me go…wow…. I hope they know what they are doing. Joe who???? We already have 2 quarterbacks that need polishing, and now we add another?? Lineman need to be fast thinkers and reactors. Hope this all works.

    wow raul, i guess the draft is life and death for you

    I’m sorry to say this as a Vikings fan but, Lions had clearly the best draft this season.

    lee, the lions ALWAYS have the best draft beacuse of where they usually are in the order

  7. By MIke B on Apr 24, 2010 | Reply

    from the way the team is drafting is a clear indication. 1 They like the players already in place. 2. This draft doesn’t have a lot of talent. 3. Farve is going to return. The picks so far point this out to me anyway.

    Raul 919.. Y are you a Ravens fan if Clausen went to Carolina?? Clausen is the next Brady Quinn.

    jbork, they drafted extremely well based on needs though, even in the other rounds.. their team might still not do well this season but their team is extremely young. They will eventually become really good (assuming their drafted picks aren’t busts :P)

    Joe Webb? Can you say TJack part deuce!?! Why? This draft has me so confused?

  17. By dirty little secret on Apr 24, 2010 | Reply

    I think Chris Cook will be a good fit. Gerhart is a great player but don’t we have enough backs between Renaud, Johnson, Young, and AP?

    Yes! joe webb! i cant find a thing about this guy anywhere. can you say late round steal? the next tom brady? we wll see

    QB situation has always been Childress likes TJack, but he gets too much heat to start him. They want Farve, but no commitment. They get Sage incase they cant’ get Farve and to quiet things down. I think if Farve didn’t come last year, chilly would have still started TJack. Webb is a developmental QB and will regulated to the practice squad.

    too late

    Rounds 6-7 keep getting worse. If the Vikes want a new stadium, this is a VERY POOR draft.

    the vikings are so stupid!!!!! Why would you pick a nobody like webb, when Myron Rolle was still on the bord? If i were to grade the vikings picks; I would give them a B in the first 4 rounds and a F in the last 3 rounds.

    They did great. Cook is a perfect fit for the secondary that needed some work. Him and sheppard will bring a better secondary then we had last year. Gerhart is an amazing pick. That just improved our offense. Griffen is a good DE though not sure why we need another? We have some great talented DE’s already not sure on that pick. They picked up a pretty good LB from the gophers. He fits what the Vikings needed at that pick. Not very sure on Webb he will prob never touch foot in an NFL game. I am hoping they can pick up Barry Church in the 7th. I think he will do well to help our secondary a little more.

    Joe Webb will play wide receiver like he did at the Senior Bowl. 6-4 225-big with 4.4 speed. Why don’t you guys google these players and do a little research before you rip the picks!

  26. By GreenMezz on Apr 24, 2010 | Reply

    anyone bashing J. Webb as a QB should realize we drafted him as a WR. check out threads under the blog for his pick. Pretty impressive stuff!

  27. By beastmde51 on Apr 24, 2010 | Reply

    webb has outstanding athletic ability and will be converted to receiver.

  28. By speedytheturtle on Apr 24, 2010 | Reply

    can anyone say wildcat with mr. webb?
    don’t forget we now have an open WR spot cause reynaud switched.

    that and i think we should place griffen on an OLB position and switch to 3-4 when pat retires

    I think the Vikings will use Web on special teams – He could throw a lateral pass accross the field to Percy or take it upfield, so the Special teams D will have to spread out, which means lanes happen. Toby is going to have some weeks where he might be in the voting for rookie of the week. I think they did a good job in this draft. What about Star and Caps will they be suspended this year?

    I think Joe Webb could be just like the reciever Matt Jones. Anyone not know who Matt Jones is? They are the same type of player.Big, fast, and can catch the ball. Both played QB. I think it was a gamble but if he is as good as Matt, ( and can stay away from trouble) I think he can be a good 4th or 5th WR. We will all just have to wait and see if the coaching staff can get him the help he needs.
