Submit Your WR Questions For Next Week’s Pick 6

Posted by Mike Wobschall on June 1, 2012 – 2:26 pm

Our brand-new Pick 6 (video mailbag) segment, which appears mid-week on vikings.com, is off and running. Each week we tackle a variety of questions submitted by fans, but next week we changing course.

Instead of tackling a variety of issues, we’re going to focus on one specific area of the team - the WRs. – and we’re going to have a special guest on hand to help answer those questions (hint: he works with the WRs every day).

So we need you to send in your WR questions. You can submit a question by emailing me (wobschallm@vikings.nfl.net) or leaving the question in the comments section below this entry. Remember to list your name and town with all questions.

If you haven’t yet done so, check out previous installments of Pick 6. This week’s edition took a look at RB Toby Gerhart, CB Antoine Winfield, standout players from OTAs, and more.

    What do you think will be a bigger tool for ponder this season, the wrs or the tes?

    We have a lot of WR’s in camp but not a lot of experience in those WR’s. Is it realistic to think that Jarius Wright and Greg Childs can step in and play as Rookies and produce? Also, do you think Burton has a shot at sticking this year?

    With 4-5 WR spots already filled (Harvin, Childs, Wright, Simpson when he returns, and Jenkins) I have a couple questions:
    1. How many WR do you see the Vikes carrying on the 53 man roster – in week 17 last year there were only 4 WR on the active roster.
    2. Who has the best chance – not counting those 5 – to fill out the receiving corps and why?
    Please be specific – I would like to see sound reasoning and examples of what each receiver brings to the table.
    As an additional question, do you see any scenario where Jenkins doesn’t make the team? While he was productive last year when healthy, he is entering his 9th or 10th year. Could a young talent impress enough to take his roster spot? Again, if so, who do you think it could be and why?

    With the two rookie WR signings, I’m curious what the long-term plans are for Simpson. Are the Vikings preparing to utilize him as a gap filler while the rookies get a feel for the game, or will the team give strong consideration to bringing Simpson back for a longer deal if he impresses, regardless of how the others perform?

    Any consideration to bringing in a deep threat WR like Bernard Berrian? I think he is still available and demands 1 guy usually.

  19. By Parody on Jun 1, 2012 | Reply

    Shawn – Are you serious? You want Berrian back?

    I’m pretty sure that’s the role that Simpson will be playing this year. Ponder made a comment a few weeks back that he couldn’t overthrow him. That’s exactly what you want of your deep threat – a guy who can run faster than the ball can fly.

    If he does well enough, Simpson might even be able to draw double-coverage from time-to-time.

    Which WRs have stood out the most in OTAs? I know you have said Simpson and the FA from SD … Harvin gets a spot. I have heard Burton mentioned once but just from OTAs who are the top 5 in your opinion?

    Possible WR spots Harvin, Simpson, Childs, Burton, and Wright. Jenkins and Aroumashodu can fight for the last Vet WR spot. Jenkins had the edge last year because he knew some of Musgrave’s system. This way all the draft picks would not go to waste and there would be 2 good Vets to pair with Harvin.

  54. By Spencer on Jun 1, 2012 | Reply

    Why do people think its a forgone conclusion that Greg Childs will start over Manny Arceneaux? :(

  55. By TheWall on Jun 1, 2012 | Reply

    Jenkins is more reliable than Aroumashodu. So I would give him the nod this year too.

  56. By TheWall on Jun 1, 2012 | Reply

    Have not seen anything Manny has done so he is an unknown. He may very well be more talented than Childs but again I have not seen him do anything.

    Jenkins has a 58% completion percentage over his career, Aromashodu has 40%. I’ll take Jenkins. I think the only WR battle will be between Burton, Arceneaux, and maybe Walters if he actually does have punt return potential as Wobby says.

  62. By KoN on Jun 1, 2012 | Reply

    Spencer, Manny would not beat out Childs. This isn’t even a debate of skill, the Vikes simply have more invested in Childs than they do in Manny. That being said, I think the Vikes will go with 6 WRs this year after Simpson gets back. That means that Manny could still make it if he beats out Burton and Walters.

    Regarding the wide outs

    my guess is childs will come in and play 30 percent of snapes for simpson

    do you think the vikes will play with very many 4 receiver sets

    example childs at one wide out spot simpson at another
    jarious right in the slot and harvin in back field

    or do you think that because of harvins shoulder issue he won’t play much out of back field and maybe instead it will be wright in back field with harvin in slot

    my bets are on wright being the best pic the vikes have made since harvin

    It feels like we now have two tall deep threats with childs and simpson

    and two small slot guys that I love

    and two good tight ends

    at the very least we have a guy if injuries happen to cover

    simpson /childs

    harvin/wright

    rudloph the red nosed rain deer/the new tight end

    gebhart /peterson

    ponder/webb

    Really? You think that Cook chose #20 because Cedric “I can’t cover a cough” Griffin switched to that number?

    I’m sure it’s just coincidence. There was no way Griffin was going to take #23 from DeAngelo Hall, so he took a number that was available. Cook wanted to move away from the image he gave to #31, so he took the next available number. They both just happened to be #20.

  84. By Parody on Jun 2, 2012 | Reply

    Loadholt could be a good candidate, but I hope that he’s able to turn himself around.

    Sanford seems like a more likely candidate. He was among the group of players who allowed offenses to tear us apart last year. It would give us good cause to start chanting for Blanton to step in next to his college teammate.

  85. By Parody on Jun 2, 2012 | Reply

    I never cared for Griffin. He was good at getting tackles after the catch, but part of that was because he was horrible at defending the pass. That was always my biggest complaint about him before his injury was that he never covered his man close enough to contend for the ball, which is why he got so many opportunities for tackles. QBs saw an easy completion and threw it his way.

    After the injury, Griffin lost his ability to stay in position for the tackle after the catch, and so removed any value that he had as a starter.

  86. By Shawn on Jun 2, 2012 | Reply

    I actually have high hopes for Guion. He is only 24 and he will get an oppotunity this season

  87. By RichardA1 on Jun 2, 2012 | Reply

    Simpson seems to have alot of untapped potential, do you see him being utilized enough to become a probowler, he has great catching skills. Do you think we will compare him to Carter, Moss someday? Carter would catch anything you threw to him, Moss just throw as far as you can and he would catch it.

    Vikings FB Jerome Felton was arrested on DWI charges early Saturday in Hennepin County, Minn.
    Felton was arrested after refusing to submit to a chemical test. He signed a one-year, $700,000 deal in March. A former fifth-round pick, Felton appeared in 14 games between the Colts and Panthers last season, and is the favorite for lead-blocking duties in Minnesota.

    Just cut Felton. We have plenty of other guys who could be just as good or better at the position. Asiata & D’Imperio have been showing promise. Then we also have this year’s 4th-round draft pick, Rhett Ellison, who could pull it off too. He was drafted to replace Kleinsasser who started his career as a FB, and if I recall properly, was the primary player to play FB last year when we didn’t have a FB on the active roster.

    There are two critical questions THE VIKINGS have to ask themselves:

    1. What do we do if Blair Walsh does not pan out as a placekicker, or if he gets injured. (Apparently there is no plan right now.)

    Consider this, NFL teams often lose multiple games by 3 points or less. SUDDENLY the lack of a placekicker becomes more important than the QB!

    Can you tell us why 11 Vikings have been arrested in recent months and what is wrong with the organizational culture that allows people like RB Felton to humiliate the Vikings community and fan base over and over and over again? As a Vikings fan since 1967 I am just never even surprized by the idiotic things Vikes players do anymore… what a sad ongoing trend.

    Two things I did not think we would have to worry about when Frazier took over as HC.

    1st – running the ball in the 4th qt with a lead ( well that didn’t happen)

    2nd – players getting in trouble off the field, now I know the coaches can not hold the players hands every where they go but come on this is getting out of hand.

    I hope we keep 6 recievers on 53 man roster. more spread sets would be awesome. now that we have a line to protect ponder
    1. Harvin
    2. Simpson
    3. Childs
    4. Wright
    5. Aromashadu
    6. Jorden

    to the comment submitted above. Is there any chance the Vikings cut Jenkins to stay with the youth movement with guys who have tons of upside to prove their worth and give them ample opportunity to shine? I for one would love to see our young guys play more.

    I especially like Kamar Jorden and how he makes plays on the ball. Good body control and manipulates defenders to get open. Great WR skills but still a little raw. A year a two this guy could be a stud! Along with Childs! But check this out

    Wobbie,
    Could the Vikes steal a WR like Dale Moss or Chris Summers if a team tries to sneak a special talent onto a practice squad rather than staying in home? Are there any WR we should keep our eyes on that would potentially fall to a practice squad due to depth at that position?

    The Vikings probably do have a plan for if Blair Walsh doesn’t work out as the placekicker. BUT IT IT OBVIOUSLY NOT A SOLID PLAN.

    The grinning bay packers lost FOUR kickers to leg injuries in 1968.

    (Jonesie, that was 1968, ya old codger!) But that cost them several games. No one could kick field goals for them that year!!!

    The offensive line drives me crazy. Schwartz was obtained pretty easily, as was Charlie Johnson last year. The other guys weren’t good enough to play on a 3-13 team! REMEMBER THAT LITTLE FACTOID!!!

    Several congressmen are looking to pass an amendment that would once again allow the government to legally use propaganda on the American Public. The amendment would basically strike down two previous acts—the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and Foreign Relations Authorization Act in 1987—that were passed to protect the American public from government sponsored propaganda.

    Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) and Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash) are the two congressmen sponsoring this bi-partisan amendment that would allow the government to legally use misinformation campaigns on the American public. The amendment to this years $642 billion defense spending bill would “strike the current ban on domestic dissemination” and allow the government to legally use State Department and Pentagon sponsored propaganda campaigns.

    Between the governments use of mainstream media to control the news to the government demonizing groups who they disagree with, this amendment is yet another example of their disdain for the American people. As it is, it’s hard enough to believe anything you hear or see on the mainstream news. If this amendment is allowed to pass, the flood gates of misinformation and propaganda will make it almost impossible to separate fact from fiction.

    To put forth a bill that allows the government to legally lie to the American public is not only ridiculous, but it’s a slap into the face to the principles that this country was founded on.

If we did know, do you think there would have been the millions give during the war bond drives. There are times disinformation needs to be used.

    Star running back. In his prime. Tears his ACL in his fifth NFL season. At the age of 26.

    It’s no wonder Adrian Peterson’s knee injury hits home with former Denver Broncos star Terrell Davis, who experienced a similar setback in 1999.

    Like Peterson, Davis attacked rehab. Yet he was never the same, playing just 13 games while rushing for 983 yards and two touchdowns after the injury.

    So Davis cautions those who see Peterson’s progress and expect him to be a Pro Bowl player again soon, offering two areas to monitor when Peterson returns.

    For starters, Davis believed his knee injury made him think too much.

    “Rather than being instinctive, you start to choreograph your moves,” Davis said in a recent ESPN interview. “As a running back, you just can’t choreograph your moves. You have to work off instincts.”

    Davis also points out it wasn’t his injured right knee that bothered him most after he returned. It was his left knee that forced his 2002 retirement, the meniscus and cartilage deteriorating as he compensated for his injury.

    “By that time, I had favored my other knee so much that [my left knee] started to wear out on me,” Davis said.

    Yep…I think this blog will change. I hope that I can handle it.

    The blog has changed. That’s why we keep on getting put on timeout. Why is it happening? We can all only guess, but I’m certain that it started happening because someone tried to improve something and made a mistake.

    Mistakes happen. I hope they continue trying to improve this site, because if they don’t, then the timeouts will never go away. Every time an improvement comes out, it’s annoying because you’re not used to it (or someone made a mistake) but once you become familiar with it, you start to forget whatever it was that annoyed you.

    If you can’t handle change, then what are you doing on a blogging site? Most of you are old enough that the word “internet” wasn’t even in your vocabulary for a generation or longer.

    Maybe the new CISPA bill that tracks people on the internet has caused this mess. Maybe I will disappear one day locked up indefinitely for questioning the intentions of our government. Maybe the timeouts are to keep my disappearance unnoticed long enough for a cover-up. When Shawn stops posting bloggers will assume he is in timeout when really the government has thrown him in guantonamo bay

    Shawn – I don’t think they do that anymore…too much paper work keeping internet prisoners in a high security American facility. Nowadays, they’ll just send you on a “hiking trip” in the Middle-East.

    I am starting to get annoyed whenever anyone on ESPN or NFL Network talk about the top WRs in the league, I have yet to hear Harvin’s name come up, he should be in the NFL.com top 100 players list but got dubbed again. Whats your thoughts on it, do you agree with me, Harvin needs some attention!

    From KSTP:

    Gov. Scott Walker says if he survives Tuesday’s recall election, his victory will send the message that voters really do want their politicians to make tough decisions.

    The Republican governor met Sunday with about 100 campaign volunteers in Germantown, about 20 miles northwest of Milwaukee. Afterward he said voters are frustrated by leaders who don’t keep their campaign promises, and his victory would prove that he’s one leader who does.

    Walker was joined by Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee. Priebus says Walker’s reforms have been working, and voters understand that.

    He says voters of all parties understand that states can’t spend money they don’t have, and voters know how fiscally responsible Walker has been.

    Walker’s Democratic challenger is Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.

    Cheers for Gov. Wlaker!

    I’ve only heard one person not assuming/mentioning starting spots to rookies automatically and that is mike wobschal. No rookie has earned the first starting job yet! keep that in mind PA and the rest of the media

    Hey Mike, I would just like to say that I’m very pleased with your hard work and dedication to keep us updated with all the latest information pertaining to the vikings organization. We’ve made some really great progress throughout the off-season by improving our offensive line with the addition of Matt Kalil, the signing of John Sullivan, switching Johnson to guard, and keeping Loalholdt on the roster as well. I’m sure are offensive line will be much more efficient this year. I’m also impressed by the recent signings of John Carlson, Jerome Simpson, Greg Childs, and Jarius Wright. However, I was just curious as to how you would rate the wide receivers that we have on our team as far as being a number 1 wide receiver, number 2, so on and so forth? Also, do you have a prediction on how they will do production wise this season? Do you think the vikings will still use Joe Webb as an option for wide receiver in certain situations such as a key red zone option perhaps? I could see him and Kyle Rudolph dominating defenses with their height and amazing athletic abilities.

  263. By Parody on Jun 4, 2012 | Reply

    That’s not true Sandiamond. Kalil has his spot locked in, I guarantee it. A team does not spend a top-five pick on an offensive lineman if they’re not certain that he’ll be the starter.

    It’s not 100% certain, but as close to a guarantee as I’d be willing to make on anything. Kalil could still shoot himself in the foot, figuratively or literally (Plaxico Burress), and I’d have to retract my guarantee. But the only person who can stop Kalil from starting is Kalil himself.

  264. By sandiamond on Jun 4, 2012 | Reply

    Kalil and Harrison may not ready to start game 1 is all i’m saying. If not the first rounders would have to lock in the position after a few games giving the structure of youth the Vikings follow

    How much cap space do the Vikings have left? It seems like they have trimmed more than they spent. Can they use ‘unsused’ cap money to ‘prepay’ players and create more cap space in the future? Juggle the books, so to speak.

  267. By sandiamond on Jun 4, 2012 | Reply

    I think that is what dallas and washington got in trouble for in the year 2010 cap. No doubt more has been trimmed than added so a couple of free agents are seriously needed to field a competitive team imo

    I would like to know what does coach Frazier think of WR Wright & WR Childs I seen what the Coach had to say about Simpson The coach & ponder like Simpson But Not alot has been said about the two rookie receivers.

    What wr will have the biggest impact? between Childs and Wright which one will be more productive? could one of those guys be the most productive on the team are they that good?

  270. By monahdav on Jun 4, 2012 | Reply

    I think Childs will be the most productiveof the Two If he plays anything like he did in Collage before he was hurt & Yes Both Childs & Wright is that good Take a on some video on them on youtube I am sure anyone that hasnt it Will think Yes Their that good.
