    TJohnson is the #3 CB? Did you create this list Mike? That’s as high as I’ve seen him listed on value charts. If he’s that good, then I’d be very happy if the Vikings take him in the 2nd round.

    …That’s as low as I’ve seen Poe listed since before the combine. Some mocks have him going in the top-10.

    Again, there are only 3 blue-chip players in this draft…the two QBs and Trent Richardson. So, draft Richardson at #3, and then let everyone immediately come to us to get him.

    Matt Kalil #3 pick for the Minneasota Vikings. Don’t mess this up, Please.

  7. By Parody on Apr 26, 2012 | Reply

    RTW – That’s not how it works. How many times have you heard of teams drafting a player just for the rights to trade him? The trade comes before he’s drafted. If he’s really that valuable, then we trade away the rights to draft him (at #3 overall) and get more draft picks out of it.

    We just may do that….according to some news stories, Spielman seems very interested in trading back in the first round.

    We won’t stand for watching our QB getting sacked 45 times a season! Let’s start improving our O-line with the #3 overall pick this year!

    RICK SPIELMAN … PICK MATT KALIL @ #3 OVERALL! NO OTHER PICK MAKES SENSE FOR THE VIKINGS!!!

    Tom Powers: Vikings GM talks like Capt. Kirk but will draft like Mr. Spock

    To be (an idiot) or not to be (an idiot), that is the question. And the answer is Matt Kalil. But you can’t blame Spielman for trying to squeeze a draft pick out of somebody if he still can end up with Kalil. However, I do suggest he dabble in community theater before the next draft. This performance has been about as subtle and effective as Shaquille O’Neal’s in “Kazaam.”

    These next three days should prove very exciting for Vikings fans. It’s three days because the NFL has not quite figured out how to spread the draft out over seven days – one pick per day. But it’s coming as the Evil Empire seeks to become a 365-day cash cow. It’s just a matter of time before the NFL moves OTAs, or organized team activities, into the stadiums and charges admission.

    With all the talk of trading our pick, I’m reminded of a story written by Pat McManus (outdoor humorist) – he wrote about his prowess at gun trading. He and a buddy went to a gun show – Pat had 3 rifles, 2 shotguns, and a Colt .45 as trading stock, his buddy went with 4 empty .30-.30 casings and a belt buckle.

    They split up and went on a trading frenzy. At the end of the day Pat’s buddy had 6 rifles, 3 shotguns, a case of ammo, and a crisp new Stetson. Pat had 4 empty .30-.30 casings and a belt buckle.

    The Vikings of the past 15-20 years remind me of Pat, not his buddy. Sold the farm for Herschel – bust. Brought in Cunningham – didn’t pan out. Spent millions on Favre – oh so close but again disappointment.

    We have a golden opportunity to take what amounts to a “sure thing” in Kalil. Why in the world would we throw that away? Because we’re Pat McManus, not his buddy

    Bucs interested in trading up with the Vikings to draft Richardson ahead of the Browns. @Parody some recent mocks have Poe going into the 20s because his tape doesn’t match his combine preformance.

    The bill is expected to face stiff opposition in Taxes.

    Two Republicans – Roger Chamberlain and Warren Limmer – on that committee have voted against the plan, and longtime stadium opponent John Marty, DFL-Roseville, sits on the panel as well.

    But Taxes also has Rosen and Geoff Michel, R-Edina, chair of the committee that passed the bill Tuesday.

    Hopefully the Browns hear that and beat the Bucs out for the trade up for Richardson. Browns having two 1st round picks would seem to be more likely to trade thier 2nd to get the RB they love. They passed on AP so I doubt they would want to miss on the Best RB since AP.

    Vikings’ division foes prepared to fill needs Article by: DAN WIEDERER , Star Tribune Updated: April 25, 2012 – 11:53 PM

    When the Vikings’ schedule was released last week, eternal optimists saw a window of opportunity, a seemingly soft itinerary and a sudden opening on the path back to NFL relevance. After all, the Vikings’ first two games — vs. Jacksonville on Sept. 9 and at Indianapolis the following Sunday — come against teams that went a combined 7-25 in 2011.

    Here we come, quick start. And what about that stretch of winnable October home games against Tennessee, Arizona and Tampa Bay?

    You can hear those 8-8 bells ringing now.

    Of course, the great equalizer in all this hopefulness is the reminder that the Vikings still reside in the NFC North, a powerful division that very well could produce three playoff teams in 2012. Keep in mind, the Vikings have lost 11 of their 12 division games the past two seasons.

    So just what might Green Bay, Detroit and Chicago do in the draft to enhance their power? Here’s a look:

    GREEN BAY
    Draft summary: Doesn’t seem fair. A team that went 15-1 last season has 12 overall picks and six in the top 135.

    Top pick: Selecting 28th in the first round, the Packers might covet Boise State’s Shea McClellin, a versatile player who could flourish as an outside linebacker in Green Bay’s 3-4 defense. Keep in mind, the Packers need to enhance their pass rush after allowing a league-most 412 yards per game in 2011 while compiling only 29 sacks (fifth worst in the NFL). Translation: Clay Matthews needs help applying pressure. Keep an eye on McClellin plus a pair of defensive tackles — Michigan State’s Jerel Worthy and Connecticut’s Kendall Reyes — as possible early targets.

    Other needs: With Matt Flynn now in Seattle, Green Bay will have to decide whether it is comfortable with Graham Harrell as Aaron Rodgers’ backup or whether it would like to find a better No. 2 option this weekend. Safety Nick Collins was released after a serious neck injury, and General Manager Ted Thompson might seek help at that position as well.

    DETROIT
    Draft summary: For only the third time since 2001, the Lions don’t own a top 10-pick. Overall, they have seven selections.

    Top pick: Detroit likely will grab a defensive back at No. 23. Eric Wright’s departure to Tampa Bay via free agency leaves an opening for a starting cornerback, and there’s an obvious need to upgrade a secondary that allowed 466 passing yards in a playoff loss to New Orleans. Alabama safety Mark Barron is on the Lions’ radar. Corners Dre Kirkpatrick (Alabama) and Stephon Gilmore (South Carolina) also would be fantastic gets if still available.

    Other needs: An aging offensive line needs to be addressed, especially with left tackle Jeff Backus recovering from biceps surgery. The Lions also need to find some complementary parts on offense, and they likely will seek a running back in the middle rounds to provide insurance for Jahvid Best’s questionable durability. Receiver help would be a plus, too.

    CHICAGO
    Draft summary: The Bears have seven picks, one each in the middle of every round.

    Top pick: At No. 19, Chicago might hope Notre Dame receiver Michael Floyd falls that far. But if he doesn’t, look for the Bears to target a promising defensive end — maybe Illinois’ Whitney Mercilus, North Carolina’s Quinton Coples or Syracuse’s Chandler Jones — defensive tackle Michael Brockers of LSU, or an offensive tackle like Stanford’s Jonathan Martin.

    Other needs: The Bears added offensive firepower and depth in free agency, landing Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall plus talented backups at running back (Michael Bush) and quarterback (Jason Campbell). But the biggest lesson learned in 2011 is they have to find ways to refurbish their O-line to keep Jay Cutler healthy. Also, finding valuable reinforcements at defensive tackle, linebacker and safety will be on the wish list.

    Worst draft pick in Vikings’ history? An easy call, Posted by: Mark Craig under Vikings, NFL draft Updated: April 25, 2012 – 9:48 AM

    A few days ago, we provided a top 10 list of the Vikings’ best draft day surprises. Today, we give you the flip side. But we’ll make it easier to stomach by offering up only half as much misery.

    Here’s one stab at the five worst draft decisions the team has ever made:

    5, Jim Dunaway, DT, Mississippi State, 3rd overall, 1963: This was not a good year for the Vikings and their battle with the rival American Football League. Dunaway went on to become an oustanding player. Only it happened in Buffalo. Dunaway was drafted by the Bills in the AFL draft and never signed with the Vikings. The Vikings’ second-round pick — Gophers defensive lineman Bobby Bell 16th overall) — also chose the AFL, signing with the Dallas Texans. Bell went on to a Hall of Fame career.

    4, Jack Snow, WR, Notre Dame, 8th overall, 1965: Snow never played a down for the Vikings. He was traded to the Los Angeles Rams and went on to have an 11-year career there.

    3, Troy Williamson, WR, South Carolina, 7th overall; and Erasmus James, DE, Wisconsin, 18th overall, 2005: Trading Randy Moss to the Raiders after the 2004 season was a bad decision magnified by the selection of Williamson with the pick they got in return. Moss had already played seven seasons, but the Vikings were able to get a No. 7 pick as part of the deal. That was 14 spots higher than Moss was drafted in 1998. But then the Vikings picked Williamson, who was a bust. James also flopped, making the Vikings one of two teams that passed on Aaron Rodgers not once, but twice before Rodgers went to Green Bay 24th overall. the other team that passed on him twice, Dallas, can at least say it got DeMarcus Ware 11th overall. The Cowboys also don’t have to play Rodgers twice a year.

    2, First round picks from 1990-92: If the Herschel Walker trade isn’t the worst trade in NFL history, it at least has a seat near the head of the table. For three consecutive years, the Vikings didn’t have a first-round pick. The first two years, they didn’t have a second-round pick either. And the third year, they gave up their picks in the first three rounds.

    1, Dimitrius Underwood, DE, Michigan State, 29th overall, 1999: It’s tough to top the Herschel trade, but when a first-round pick leaves training camp after the first day and never returns, well, that’s a winner on a list like this.

    @PurpleHaze most people don’t seem to realize Mike Holmgren hates taking WRs early in drafts. He would be more likely to take Claiborne then Blackmon (he is OVER-RATED, Blackmon is a high No. 2 WR not an elite No. 1)

  32. By DRS on Apr 26, 2012 | Reply

    We could have had Aaron Rodgers twice and passed, do not pass on MATT KALIL, that would be the worst draft pick mistake in Vikings’ history by far.

  33. By hognuts on Apr 26, 2012 | Reply

    I would like it if the Bucs trade up and get Richardson then at #5 we can get either Kalil or Claiborne, plus we have 2 or 3 more picks later in the draft

    I would love it if the Bucs coveted Trent Richardson enough to trade places. The Browns aren’t likely to take Kalil so we could get him @ 5 and get more draft picks, seems ideal to me.

    If the Browns did want Kalil opposite Thomas, then Claibourne would be there as the perfect consolation prize!

    Former Cretin-Derham Hall star Michael Floyd could be a top-10 pick
    By Jeremy Fowler Posted: 04/26/2012 12:01:00 AM CDT
    April 26, 2012 5:19 AM GMTUpdated: 04/26/2012 12:19:39 AM CDT

    Potential top-10 pick Michael Floyd leads the list of players with Minnesota connections looking to be selected in this week’s NFL draft or make a roster in training camp.

    Despite three alcohol-related offenses while at Notre Dame, Floyd, a St. Paul native and former Cretin-Derham Hall star, didn’t disappoint on the field for the Irish, finishing with 100 catches for 1,147 yards and nine touchdowns in his final season in South Bend. Save Oklahoma State’s Justin Blackmon, Floyd is the best pass catcher in the draft and isn’t expected to fall past the 20th pick.

    Floyd could be the only Twin Cities native taken in the first three rounds of the draft, which begins Thursday, April 26, but South Dakota’s Tom Compton leads an accomplished group of offensive linemen hoping to hear their name called – or get a call from a team Saturday night, offering a chance to compete.

    Tom Compton (born May 10, 1989) is an American football offensive lineman. He attended the University of South Dakota from 2007 to 2011. He is currently available in the 2012 NFL Draft.

    A native of Rosemount, Minnesota, Compton attended Rosemount High School, where he was a two-year starter on the offensive line and led team to section championship and state semifinals.

    At South Dakota, Compton was a three-time Great West Conference selection—honorable mention in 2009 and consecutive first team selections in 2010, 2011—and 2011 GWC Offensive Lineman of the Year.[1] After his senior season, he played at the 2012 East–West Shrine Game.

    Compton was invited to the 2012 NFL Combine, where he was listed as the No. 9 offensive tackle prospect. He looks to become the first South Dakota Coyote to be drafted since Chul Schwanke in 1986.[2]

    Roger … If you’d been reading my blogs, you’d know that I think Floyd is better than Blackmon. That being said, maybe Holmgren takes Blackmon because (1) he thinks he’s the next best offensive weapon on the board and (2) he simply can’t see filling another position in the first round. I don’t know what Holmgren is thinking, and I don’t know why all those “experts” are making the calls they do. That’s just what I’ve read.

  43. By Rogerthevikefan on Apr 26, 2012 | Reply

    Glad you like Floyd better PurpleHaze because he is a true No. 1 Wr. But if you look at Holmgren’s draft history from the Pack to the Seachicks and now the Browns you would see he tends to go for DBs early while waiting on WRs. I’m not bashing you just telling you what I know.

  44. By Rogerthevikefan on Apr 26, 2012 | Reply

    If not for Floyd’s off field problems he would go ahead of Blackmon. At Norte Dame teams would double him and when that didn’t work they tripled him. Floyd is awesome. If fact forget about LTs and DBs draft him. Bring Floyd home.

    DRS- The Vikings had Compton in for a visit… I am sure they have an interest.
    Compton looked good at the combine finishing in the top ten among Olineman in 5 categories. He also looked good at the East West shrine game. He has the NFL frame and is a 4 year starter.

    I agree with OTK- I think the Vikings will trade back 2 times.
    Trade 1 moving back to 4 or 5 with Cleveland or Tampa whoever wants Richardson the most. Vikings will take best offer and it might only be a 3th or a 4th round pick. At this point I would take it.

    So, IMO I think the Vikings like OT Mike Adams and OT Tom Compton and will look to trade back 1 more time. Seattle at 12 may want to move up ahead of Miami for Tannehill or Buffallo may want to trade up for Kalil.

    I think the Vikings could get a 2nd and 3rd for this next move. That is not a lot of value, but If the Vikings love Mark Barron, Micheal Floyd, Gilmore, Kuechly or a DT.
    It could happen? The Vikings can still get a game changer type player at 10 or 12… and have an extra 2nd and maybe 2 extra 3rds to go get the players they covet.

    Tradeing back a couple times could be a really great idea. The Browns likely will only be willing to give up a 3rd because they want to trade back into the 1st for QB Weedon while getting Richardson and a WR at 22. Then the next trade partner could be the Bills yeah they likely want Kalil but they would be willing to give up thier 2nd round pick and maybe a 4th. Vikings at 10 could then likely pick between Floyd, Gilmore, Reiff, and Kuelchy(not sure if its spelt right)

  56. By Rogerthevikefan on Apr 26, 2012 | Reply

    They could likely trade back a 3rd time and draft either OT Mike Adams or John Martin. The Bengals would be the most likely trade partner then. Bengals would likely be targeting Gilmore because of Leon Hall achilles injury and the rest of thier corners being lower tier guys. Probably get a extra 2nd or 3rd from them.

    Come on, you guys saying We need Kallil can’t be as dumd as you portray. We have a chance to get a guy who is a TD producing machine. You must not watch much college football. Blackmon is the pick. He will open everything up for us. We can get a good tackle @ 35.
