Some NFL Draft-Related Thoughts

Posted by Mike Wobschall on February 8, 2011 – 11:15 am

With Super Bowl XLV (finally) complete and the 2010 NFL season officially in the books, it’s time to turn our focus exclusively toward the offseason. The two most significant talking points in the early part of the offseason are the 2011 NFL Draft and the on-going Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) negotiations.

The CBA issue is paramount because without a new agreement in place between the NFL and the NFLPA we won’t have any on-field or off-field football activities. We won’t get into the details of the CBA negotiations right now, but you can always check out our CBA FAQ page to get some basic questions answered.

Let’s talk about something much more fun and entertaining – the NFL draft. Here are a few notes to keep in mind in the early stages of pre-draft speculation…

– The Vikings hold the 12th overall pick in this year’s draft, we all know that by now. But the team also has 6 other picks in the draft – a 2nd, 4th, two 5ths, a 6th and a 7th. You’ll notice the lack of a 3rd-round pick – given up in Randy Moss trade – and the extra 5th-round pick – acquired in Darius Reynaud/Sage Rosenfels trade.

– The biggest question surrounding the Vikings is, what will they do with the #12 pick? Most fans and observers are expecting the Vikings to select a QB with that pick. But if the team’s preferred QB is not available by the time pick #12 comes around or if the team likes a QB but values that player as a later pick, there are several other alternatives. We’ll get into this in more detail as the draft approaches.

– I’ve stated many times both here on the blog and in the Monday Morning Mailbag that Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier has seemed committed to finding a young QB in this year’s draft. While that may be the generally preferred route to acquiring a QB, Frazier has also indicated that the team has not decided to use the draft as the exclusive means to finding a franchise-caliber QB. Appearing on Rosen’s Sports Sunday this past weekend, Frazier said: “We have some time between now and the draft to kind of look at some things from a free-agent standpoint and then we’ll look at some college players as well to try to make a determination: Is it better to draft a guy or is it better to maybe bring in a veteran guy to compete in training camp? We do not have our mind made up at all.”

Thanks to Judd Zulgad of the Star Tribune for transcribing that quote. Zulgad transcribed Frazier’s entire interview with Rosen – check it out by clicking here.

– Once March rolls around we’ll begin our annual Mock Madness feature, where we track on a weekly basis several popular mock drafts. In the meantime, though, I thought it was notable that Nolan Nawrocki of Pro Football Weekly has projected the Vikings taking Iowa DE Adrian Clayborn. This might come off as a surprise to many at first glance, but consider that both Ray Edwards and Brian Robison are free agents (assuming a new CBA is worked out) and you can see why DE might be the route the Vikings take.

– Speaking of DEs, NFL Network draft analyst and Vikings preseason TV game analyst Mike Mayock says the DE position may be the strongest in this year’s draft. He said on NFL Network’s Total Access that as many as 7 or 8 DEs could go in the 1st round. Click here to watch a video of Mayock breaking down his top 5 DEs.

– Lastly, just wanted to remind you that I’ll be heading to Indianapolis later this month to cover the NFL Scouting Combine. I’ll be there beginning on February 23 and will pass along as much information as possible to you. You can expect to hear from Frazier and Vikings VP of Player Personnel Rick Spielman at least one time a piece, and we’ll also try to catch up with as many NFL observers and draft-eligible players as possible.

    No CBA, no play, no worries on who to draft, no worry on who to acquire in the free agency, or where to play, no replacements so no NFL football, rich striking the rich, how nice.

    I am starting to think that the NFL fixes their games, saying who wins in advance of the year. How was it that the Bears call time out to put in the losing play to allow the GB Packers another pass to the SB? The GB Packers was the bookies choice so they are given a pass all the way to the SB win. It is amazing that the NFL can say at the start of the season who will win with amazing accuracy. Players suddenly cannot play, suddenly coaches cannot coach, on and on it goes.

    DRS- only in the event of a lockout by the owners will there be no games (no replacements). Because of the hundreds of free agent players, a lock out by the owners is the most serious threat to those FA players. As fans all we can do is hope the owners will do “right by the fans” and declare an impasse. If the owners on March 4th declare an impasse, it will force the players to strike/walkout. Then the owners willl be able to use replacement players.

    The Packers found Rodgers as their franchise QB. The Lions with Stafford, and thr Bears with Cutler. I find it deeply disturbing the Vikings hasnt had a franchise QB since, what Culpepper? I may be wrong on that, but my point is its TIME to find that QB we can center our team around so that we can compete with the Lion, Packers, and Bears.

  22. By Carl K on Feb 8, 2011 | Reply

    We have 24 days to hope the player’s solidarity starts to wiggle… and that they accept the truck load of money the owners are willing to give them.

    We can also hope that in the final hour, the owners will have a heart and declare and impasse.

    If not.. then the UFL is the next best thing.

    Comment: Let’s give Webb a real shot. If Jackson isn’t the man, offer to trade him. Most of our problems revolve around coaching; the offense is too predictable. I can tell every time Peterson is going to carry, and so can the defense…Mix it up. Throw until the loosen up!!! We are close to a super bowl team. Coaching is the best answer.Have guys ready to play, or get rid of them.
    they are professionals for heaven sakes….Attitude wins; chemistry wins.
    Sure use the draft to get the best players available…But coaching is the
    thing we need most…

    @Fred I did read the second paragraph … he is talking about team / player activities aka free agency , trades, players coming in for therapy.

    Stop being STUPID …. THE CBA HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GETTING A STADIUM PROPOSAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mike Wobs is assuming we have the intelligence to understand what football activities are … and he is most like ignoring the stadium talk because he works for the team and wouldnt create a negative uproar regarding the organization.

    Fred I have agreed with you in theory on other issues like the O Line however you are 100% wrong about not getting a stadium proposal until after the CBA is agreed upon. And all I ask is you stop avoiding the facts because we as fans are in DANGER of losing Minnesota Viking footb’all

    The argument of more to life than footb’all should be on a differant forum BECAUSE THIS FORUM IS FOR FOOTBA’LL AND VIKING FANS

    I think this cba will get handled quickly, there is too much money on the field for the players not to get this done. Enough is enough when it comes to these paychecks, and a bunch of money is better than none, so they will settle,, the nfl will tame down these contracts, and the world will turn again. So viking front office….nose to the grindstone, this has to be the best draft in vikings history or enjoy 6 and 10 again.

    Webb really didn’t show anything to indicate to us he is the future. For the life of me, I don’t really know who the vikings draft at qb, because most of these QB in this years draft look very overrated.

  33. By Carl K on Feb 8, 2011 | Reply

    @AndrewS- I am a Big Joe Webb fan. I have stated in the past that if the Vikings draft a rookie QB, he will have a hard time beating out Joe Webb. I hope Joe gets the opportunity to compete for the starting QB job… I think he earned the right to atleast prove he “is” or “is not” a QB.

    With that said you can’t put all your eggs in the Joe Webb basket. The Vikings will look to draft a QB for sure. The question is if the Vikings draft a QB with the 12th pick, will they allow Webb to compete for the job? Or will they move Webb to WR?

  34. By TJ Vike on Feb 8, 2011 | Reply

    I like Joe Webb and the Vikings should at least give him an opportunity to be a starter. That being said, the Vikes should try to pick up a seasoned veteran (on the cheap). Carson Palmer, Matt Hassleback, or some other experienced QB should be available. The risk to reward factor for a mid-first round QB has historically been poor. It would be wise for Rick Spielman and Leslie Fraser to look in the later rounds for strong potential.

    I think the Vikings will draft value in the first round which favors DEs. Don’t rule out a solid DT to eventually succeed the aging “Williams Wall”.

  37. By Carl K on Feb 8, 2011 | Reply

    If Gabbert or Mallet are already off the board at the 12th pick… I would call the Patriots ( they have 2-2nd round picks and 2-3rd round picks) and I would trade back to the 28th pick in the first round. With that pick I would select Mike Pouncey or the best OL available. The Vikings should hopefully get one of the Patriots 2nd round picks. (maybe #33 top of the secound round- to select a QB like Locker if he falls or Ponder or Devlin) then we have our 2nd round pick to go DB.

    Please don’t draft Cam, anyone but him, if I hear one more expert talk about the upside or great potential I am going to be sick. We here this every year and there almost always a bust.

    If we can’t get Gabbert or Mallet or trade up maybe with Clevland, trade down and get as many picks as we can. We have alot of needs. I would not resign Sidney, release all the secondary except Windfield. Resign Greenway.

    It’s a little like the argument that they drafted Joe Webb as a WR.

    Not true, the first listing for him was for QB. Now they may have said they projected him as a WR, but the last two years he was in college, he played QB.

    I agree Josh. The best QB in the world isnt going to do much without an O line. Most of the sacks given up last year came around McDummy. And how many times does the center have to snap the ball over the QBs head before they fix the problem. Loadholt would be much better if he had a decent guard next to him. Fix the O line FIRST. Then worry about a QB. Give Webb the reins next year and see what he can do while you work on the line and the secondary. If he shows that he cant handle it, draft a QB NEXT year.

    Draft a new LT maybe Nate Solder or Anthony C. the Italian from Boston College in the first. Ponder or Devlin or Stanzi in the second. The secondary help with the 4th and 2 5ths. Then oline compettion with the 6th and 7th.

    the answer to the vikings problems are as follows. trade for caleb haine of the chicago bears; he exhibited extraordinary intelligence and relaxation in the pocket, not to mention a strong arm. secondly, draft new offensive linemen since they’re the whole reason why favre didn’t have a killer year. you can’t be expected to throw well if you get less than two seconds to do so.

    Shawn, I know where the comments were directed– Fred is one of my favorite bloggers– so I guess I stand up for my friends– and since you are a blog friend too, I kept my comments civil- I did not mean to offend you or anyone on the more than football comment, but rather to calm everyone down– I was just trying to maintain some perspective on the Vikings in relation to life—
    Do not get me wrong, if they left, I would be sick about it– my dad, who is long gone, was friends with some of the original owners and I went to the Old Met with him. I went to college near Cincy and was a Bengal fan (Vikings always first team, though) and I was in shock when the Browns moved– shock– they were a part of Cleveland and I could not believe it. So, we could lose the Vikes– it is possible, but I also think Dayton and the whole state govt would be tarred and feathered if it happens– I believe there is a 20% chance the Vikes will leave– I doubt they go, but it is possible.

    That was a good superbowl game to watch, I was entertained. There was a
    post that said the Packers didn’t need a running game but it seemed to me that they ran for more than a few first downs, no dought set up by a good passing
    attack. another thing that stuck out was that the running backs on both teams
    picked up the outside rush and inside blitze well so there were more than five
    linemen blocking most of time. I saw some really excellent recievers on both
    teams that were vitually unstoppable no matter how good the defensive back
    was. The kicking team coverage was excellent for both teams and it was refreshing to see that every return yard was hard fought for by the returners.
    Without the turnovers I’m not sure how the game would have turned out, what
    more can you ask for. These comments are supposed to be about our draft,
    as a viking fan I can only hope that after the draft I can see a team assembled
    and coached as well as those two teams were.

    Draft a secondary corner and a safety or five. Offensive line is less about talent and more about technique and physical size–we have that; coach them better.

    A greater secondary = better blitzes.

    As far as the quarterback goes– there is not one QB that I like in the first round. However next year there are at least four really solid prospects. So let webb have it, or tell greenbay to give us mattt flynn.

  75. By Parody on Feb 9, 2011 | Reply

    They always seem to say that “next year’s draft looks so much better than this year’s”. It’s been going on for a while now. QBs look like good prospects a year away, and the closer they get to draft day, the less confidence that people have in their abilities. Maybe that’s why we haven’t gotten a franchise QB in over a decade now. We can sit and wait for the perfect guy to come along, or we can put some good coaching and confidence in the guys that are available now, and turn them into the perfect guy. Personally, I prefer the second choice.

    And Flynn? Are you serious? Green Bay was so much worse with him behind center, and they almost lost their shot at the playoffs because of it. They were lucky that Rodgers didn’t get his head rattled again in the playoffs, or they would have fallen apart in a heart beat. I’d be surprised if the Packers don’t try to draft a better backup this year before the end of the 3rd round.

    I agree on giving Webb a chance. However, good offensive linemen are not built in training camp. They have to have skills as well as other positions. The best offensive linemen are more than just big. They are quick, and can move their feet. They are strong, and have great balance. Etc., etc.

    Coaches are only as good as the talent on the team.

    Draft a o-line like a RT and get a new center and RG. QB situation egt a vet to mentor Webb like McNabb,Young,Palmer not(Kolb or Leinart). The key signs for the Vikings are Rice,Greenway,Pat,Longwell,Edwards. For AP he needs a great blocking line and FB, cause he should average 1,500 yards a year easy. In the NFL FA we should get Nnamdi or C. Bailey and move Winfield to S. Also, avaivable is WRs like R. Moss,S.Moss,TO,S Holmes,B.Edwards so if we are aggresvive GB will be in 2nd place again.

    Our OLine has plenty of potential yet. Don’t forget that in 2009, two of them had been selected to the Probowl while the rookie was considered top-ten quality in a hindsight mock-draft.

    That makes the argument about coaching very valid. With proper coaching these guys still have the potential to be acknowledged among the top of the league again. But it wouldn’t hurt to get one young stud in there to push the rest to improve and give us a solid option for the future.

    The Vikings confirm that they’re looking at the Metrodome site and the former ammunition plant in Arden Hills. They won’t divulge the other two sites. But it’s likely they’re the area west of Target Field on Interstate 94 in downtown Minneapolis, and Target Corp. acreage in Brooklyn Park near Hwys. 610 and 169.

    The Metrodome is “the most cost-efficient site,” said Lester Bagley, the Vikings’ vice president of public affairs and stadium development. “But there are other factors that come into play to sort out the ideal site.”

    The Vikings will have to play @ TCF Field if they go with the Metrodome site. Why repair the roof if they are going to tear down the dome?

    The northern Ramsey County city offers 430 vacant acres on a former site of an Army ammunitions manufacturing plant. A stadium could be built near the junction of Interstate 35W and Hwy. 10; those highways and nearby Interstate 694 make it easy to reach.

    Acquiring the property shouldn’t be complicated — the only owner is the federal government — and it’s expected to be put up for auction this year. There’s more than enough land for parking, tailgating and other development that the Wilfs might want to pursue.

    I think if we to pick a franchise QB it needs to be in the top 5 spots of the 1st round. I mean there is many “good” QB’s in this years draft that you can choose at 12th but I wouldn’t think any that are left could be used with a franchise tag. Either we trade up and grab Cam Newton. Make him our QB of the future or we grab a veteren such as Carson Palmer maybe even hasselbeck and then pick up a good QB like dalton in the 2nd round. We have the 12th pick in the 2nd round and thats a good pick for a deceant QB to farm under a Vet player. Fill a greater need with our 1st pick. It should be in our secondary, or our O-Line.

    Although I have no issue with webb. I still would like to see him try WR as we did pick him in the 7th for that position. He is super athletic and fast and has a good height. I bet with his running skills and the way he carries the ball. He would make a great WR.

They should take Pouncey with the Jags 1st round pick. Then also with the Jags 2nd 2nd round pick take another offensive lineman. Let Herrara go and keep Hutchinson. With the 3rd round pick take a ball hawking Safety.

    give Joe Webb a chance, grab a Veteran QB at Free Agency for Insurance to backup and see if Joe Webb can be built to be our future QB. and then go get Randy Moss back, maybe Santanio Holmes or Larry Fitzgerald.

    Grab some good safeties in the draft and a couple OL or just trade our 12th pick with the patriots 2nd round and the two 3rd round pick along with a 7th round pick that would give us more dept in the draft and more options

    1st thing the Vikes should do is get the 350 NT Rogers released from the Browns to replace Pat Williams. 2nd resign TJ he’s a veteran QB and Chilli wasn’t good for him as far as building his confidence, Chilli wanted to pull Farve who know’s the offensive system better than him so what do you think TJ was going through dealing with that not to mention bringing in Favre when he thought he was going to start and was lookin good and the 2nd year begged Favre to come back. Joe Webb is a young impressive qb so Y would we get another qb in the draft. I would wait for the Skins to let Mcnabb go who wanted to come to the Vikes last year and get him. the 1st round of the draft get an Offensive lineman, 2nd safety, 3rd Chilli gave away, 4th WR, 5th DE.

    Vikes can get Santonio Holmes as the other WR opposite of Sidney Rice and with getting an OL in the1st round draft our offense should be very productive, with AP, Shaincoe, Rice, & Harvin. If we get Holmes and 1st round OL then load up the rest of draft on defense. QB’s we should wait for the Skins to let McNabb go who wanted to play with the Vikes unlike Favre who got begged back, I personally think the Vikes wanted to win with him but he would bring in money is the real big reason they went back to Farv, if not McNabb another vet free agent QB. Keep TJ a relatively young vet who dealt with poor coaching and if Chilli would pull Favre from a game how much pressure or lead way did you think TJ had? Too much negative pressure!! let Webb learn for another year or so and let the young QB do his thing, so drafting a QB in the draft isn’t promising anything ask Ryan Leaf. Webb proved he can play at this level but need some fine tuning with the improved coaching staff and the players respecting the coaching staff I expect a strong run to the Super Bowl.

Let Joe Webb compete for the starting job with the 2ndR Drafty then find a cheap but servicable option for your third string QB as insurance. I still say trade Bryant Mckinnie for a 2nd and 3rd or 4thR pick. Then let Patrick Brown compete with who the vikings would draft at tackle. Also a DE would be a good choice in the 1st round.

    The Vikings need a QB! Webb is not a qb, he is a rb pretty much. Look at superbowl winners, manning, rodgers, brady, ben, favre, they all are thorw first mentalities, we need a ryan mallet, or locker someone who can throw the ball, and make big offense plays, we have the best rb to run the ball we need someone who can throw it. Webb is not the answer why dont we just put peterson or gerhart or reisgn moss did you see his pass to favre thats about what webbs look like!

    @ BJ. Why would you want to re-sign TJ. He’s horrible… inaccurate and can’t read defenses. He had a couple years to to learn behind Brett Favre and still couldn’t prove that he had improved. He’s a veteran (I think 5 yrs or more) and still can’t produce like a starter… how pathetic. No excuses for him, just look at what Aaron Rogers did if you want to talk about pressure. Skol Vikings!

    @ 4thememories…You’re right he will probably be gone, but I think if he is not then he is a must pick…I would not be apposed to trading T-Jack away to move up a couple spots in the draft, since T-Jack is terrible in my opinion…I am guessing your Farve back for 1 more year is sarcasm, but if your not Farve is absolutely not the answer for 2011…He probably would have performed a little better if he actually had some protection…Yes they did waste a 3rd round pick on Randy Moss, but I still think it was worth the a shot…It sure sounded good at the time…I don’t think anyone thought that Moss would perform as poorly as he did…I bet he ruined a lot of Fantasy teams in 2010…I’m glad I didn’t draft him…And oh by the way I do think your analogy/metafor at the end of your at the end of your comment is quite GAY! Who is your team by the way?

    Very unlikely, but try to get mallet, or a qb. We have major positions filled we just need that franchise qb in order to get us moving toward the suberbowl.

    Just saw that Plaxico Burress is looking at making a return…he would be quite an edition on the opposite side of Sidney Rice…Vikings try to sign him or Santonio Holmes!

    what we need is a repair of the O Line as well as the Def line, with Pat Williams in his mid 30’s , we will need to replace him soon. as for QB, I hate to have the Vikings again look to an old QB in hopes he’ll pilot the team to a super bowl. (Brett Farve, Randell Cunninham, Warren Moon, Brad Johnson, Gus ferrott etc.) What is needed is to look and see if Joe Webb may be our future QB and might we look to see if there is a franchise QB in next year’s draft, like Luck of Stanford.
