    Don’t be fooled by the radio, the TV, or the magazines of what your life should be based on someone else’s fantasy. Deep inside were all the same. All the same !

    Get behind Joe Webb, pick two starters in those first two rounds.

    Offensive Line
    Defensive Backs
    Defensive Line

    Fred – Right now the only QB I would select with the 12th pick is Blaine Gabbert. But I think he will be long gone.

    I like Joe Webb. I have said many times, a rookie QB will have a hard time beating out Joe Webb in an open preseason competition.

    With weapons like A. Peterson, P. Harvin, Shancoe, and S. Rice (if we don’t go QB in the first round, we should be able to put that money toward resigning Rice) and with the right game plan, Webb will do just fine.

    The Vikes really should sign receiver right away at number 12. If green or jones fall too number 12, grab them fast, because I’m not as optimistic rice will sign with us. We don’t have a dynamic QB on our roster right now and rice wants to be with a proven QB. If those 2 aren’t available, then they have to go best player available and what I’ve been hearing. Prince might fall to the Vikings and having him would really bolster the secondary greatly.

    Yes, if Green or Jones fall to number 12, I am sure they will pick them.

    @Carl K. It seems certain that the rookies will not get the same cash as in past years. So I doubt we’ll save that much by not drafting a QB. Joe Webb looks like at least a competent QB. So we just need a good vet to compliment him…like Orton or Kolb.

    @Carl K. Our secondary is painful. It would be nice to get Prince at #12.

    Sorry I meant @Animal in the last blog.

    @animal – I would love to see Prince Amukamara fall to the Vikings at #12.
    I also think the Vikings should jump on WR AJ Green or Julio Jones if available.

    I don’t think the Vikings will get that lucky. However, the good news is the WR position is pretty deep this year. I think with one of our 5 picks in the 4th thur 6th round I think we could get a quality WR like Greg Little, Edmond Gates, Niles Paul, Tandon Doss, Denarius Moore, Austin Pettis, Cecil Shorts or Greg Salas.

    I would love to see CB Aaron Williams fall to the Vikings at #43 in the 2nd round. He can play corner or safety. I also like CB Curtis Brown – he can also return punts. 14.5 yrd avg. Devon House is a small school corner with 10 career INTs that could go in the 2nd round. Rahim Moore and Quintin Carter might be available also in the 2nd round.

    So frederick, to answer your question… my 2 starters I would take in the first 2 picks would be. (if we dont trade back)
    #12 – Tyron Smith OT – Make Mckinnie work for his job, or move him to the RT, or trade him.
    # 43 – Aaron Williams CB, (He didn’t run a great 40 time at the combine, so I am hoping he falls to the Vikings) If C. Griffen is healthy and looking good, the Vikings would have 2 young corners in C. Cook and Aaron Williams who could play safety if needed.

    I think the Vikings will move up from the 4th round and find away to get QB Andy Dalton in the 3rd round.

    Sorry gentlemen Coach Frazier wants his go to QB. I read they are bringing in Cam Newton for try out. Nothing so far has changed my mind that #12 will be a QB or traded to move up to a higher draft number. If we trade up I would imagine we would loose our 1 and 2 pick to trade up. Just a guess. It seems to be going down that way. We will see at the end of the month.

    QB,DB,O-Line, pretty simple. Make sure the DBs can catch. AP needs some help up front. Last but not least, gotta have someone who can throw.

  12. By Bubba on Apr 3, 2011 | Reply

    Cam Newton = J. Russell
    Ryan Mallett = Jimmy Clausen
    Jake Locker = Brady Quinn

    Good luck finding a QB in the first round!

    Moving up to get Gabbert or Newton would cost more than our 1st and 2nd round picks. Our #12 pick is worth 1200 points on a draft value chart. The #43 pick is worth 470. That is a total of 1670. Pick #3 is worth 2200. Pick #2 is 2600. Pick #1 is 3000. How can we trade up to get Gabbert or Newton???
    Give away next years picks too??

    I know Frazier has talked about moving up to get a QB…. but do the math, it just doesn’t add up. Giving up 3 high draft pick for a rookie QB makes no sense!

    I like Carl K.’s plan the best.

    Pick some players who might start immediately.

    You can pick a quarterback, and you might pick a Joe Montana.
    But according to Brian Billick you are more likely to pick a Ryan Leaf.

    Remember Coaches have to say things about the draft, sometimes they say things to fake out an opposing team. They often hide their intentions.
    ===Why would you let the world know exactly who you covet in the draft???

    If every team said who they were going to pick, other teams would be able to pass on certain players, knowing that player will be there until a designated time.
    Fred– you are right– exactly. We will call you Exactly Fred.

    We will draft a qb in the 1st round I will bank on it, this team will roll the dice this year on a qb the black and blue division is all set with qb’s leaving us behind. This position will be addressed whether or not its a bust waiting for a later round will not make hope any better. Something funny always happens in the draft a qb will slide down. If we don’t draft a qb I see kolb in a vikings uniform.

    Webb was 1-1 as a starter.
    Webb was #1 (on the Vikings) in comp % at 60.7
    Webb was #2 in p@ssing yds with 477
    Webb was #3 in rushing with 120 yds.
    Lets see what he can do in more games.

    @ Frederick – It is time to get behind Joe Webb. Do you have any good ideas for a nick name for him???
    What do you think about Joe “.net” Webb?
    Adrian Peterson is All Day.
    Mr Webb is .net
    Or maybe “4G”?????

    We all look at what might work for the vikings and we don’t look at what players the vikings have in pos. that some might look at as need.The vikings may think the need lies in a pos. that might need addressing in this draft because of who is on the board at#12. The vikings have players on the team that made the team for a reason.Have a CB fall to them at #12 would help but so would a OL. or a DL. how about a WR.The vikings have all these pos. on the rooster now so why not give them credit for making the team already.Take the best player at #12 and move on to the 2nd rd. and do the same.Free angency will happen some time before season start.

    @Carl K…. here’s one… Joe “Benched” Webb :)

    Just kidding… i’d rather they went for OT and DB help early, and MAYBE draft a QB in the 4th, if there is value in him. We have WAY too many holes in this team to trade away our draft for Gabbert, and there isn’t another QB I’m excited about. Give Webb a shot, and when he tanks because of inexperience and a sub 500 football team around him, we can look to trade away our draft NEXT year for Luck.

    the vikings need to fix there line to block for the vikings if it is webb or a rookie the line let brett favre get hurt bad and brett favre needed time in the pocket to read the defense the vikings came off a 12-4 record i though wen brett decided to play one more year he would be a monster again the vikings defense is up to par they either need a o-lineman or a quarterback to battle with joe webb or a defensive of lineman to replace ray edwards thats all they need to do. CAN YOU PICTURE IT CAM NEWTON TO PERCY HARVIN

  26. By stephen on Apr 4, 2011 | Reply

    im a big AP fan wen he runs like a beast we do good and wen percy doesnt have his migrains we are on fire when are line does good we are untouchable when our defense do good we are unstoppable…. if the vikes dont draft a qb i see young or kolb in purple……………………………

    It seems that a lot of people forget that Payton Manning and Troy Aikman when they first started out in their rookie season they had horrible rookie year, so why is everyone so quick to write Joe Webb off and discount him as a possible starter. Aikman and Manning had full training camps at the position working with the starers, while Joe wasn’t even on the active roster for most of the year and once activated he work with the practice squad guys at the quarterback position until he was pressed into service and still manage to win as many games as Aikman and Manning did with less opportunity and far, far less reps at the position Joe Webb is by far and away a better athlete than Cam Newton and much more poised and without the baggage. I’m praying the Vikings stay away from Cam Newton, would rather see them pick Ryan Mallett but think Joe Webb can get the job done if given a fair shake!

    @ 4eversteve, couldn’t agree more, Joe Webb does look like he’s got the poise even when he is getting rushed. The game I seen he was backing up and to his rt. with his eyes still looking downfield which is what TJ couldn’t do. TJ had the deer in the headlight look as will Cam Newton. @bubba agree with the QB comparisons also. I say go with Webb and trade later, with CBA being done

  30. By Carl B on Apr 5, 2011 | Reply

    I say go with a CB,DL,OL,WR at #12 then a QB 2nd Ponder or Dalton in the 3rd rd. Let Joe Webb and drafted QB battle it out in training camp. Tyron Smith would make a good left tackle and put Mckinnie on the right side or trade him as soon as there is a new CBA. Prince would be a good choice at CB then move cook to Saftey. Draft two wide outs for who ever the starting QB is.
    Moving down in the draft is a option and get a third pick back and still get the 1st rounder we want.

    Joe webb was 1-2 Carl K. Also, he isn’t anything special and those who keep saying hes the future are deluding themselves. The Vikings will need to draft a true future QB and move Webb to Receiver. I don’t know who the Vikings should draft, but I hope they are able to hit gold in either this year or next year. If Webb does start, then we can be relieved that we will have a great chance of obtaining Andrew Luck if he enters the NFL draft next year.
