Vikings:
Travis Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma – Somehow Travis Lewis falls this far in my mock draft, and it is unwarranted.
Lewis is very highly regarded.
Plus, the Vikings like to bring in rookies to fill positions of need for not that season but for the one season out.
Remember drafting Tyrell Johnson a year before Darren Sharper left?
Or Sullivan a year before Birk left?
Well, in 2011 Ben Leber is a free agent and Lewis would provide the Vikings with an easy transition.
I don’t view OLB as a huge need, especially considering the depth, but Lewis would be a true value pick here.

Hey mods.
Can you make a offseason thread that we can put this stuff in?
I know its early and not many start thinking about this stuff this soon, however, there are a few of us sicko's out there.

Overshadowed by Berry and Mays.
Could fall to us.
He's a hell of a player.

Probably so it's not like the Favre, Childress, or Jackson issues where you have to go through hundreds of pages to find what you're looking for after everything gets merged together.

As long as we can all agree the Vikings will be picking 32nd, there is no reason to not start this thread.

Minnesota Vikings: Travis Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma
Weakside linebacker is not a need for the Vikings, but Travis Lewis, a possible top-15 prospect, is the best player available here. Ben Leber will be 31 in December and he'll be entering the final year of his contract next season. A dynamic talent like Lewis could push Leber for playing time right away and become a force on Minnesota's defense as a mere rookie.

Cody fits in perfectly with the Vikings defense. He is a HUGE run stopper and will be a great player for the Vikings defense. Cody is the top Run Stopper in any position in this 2010 NFL Draft and worth a late first round pick.

MINNESOTA VIKINGS:
COLT MCCOY, QB, TEXAS
Colt McCoy | Texas Longhorns

Scouting Report


After months and months of speculation the Vikings finally signed Brett Favre but he is merely a stop-gap solution, at best. Minnesota’s relentless pursuit of the future Hall of Famer was a clear sign that they didn’t have much faith in either Tarvaris Jackson or Sage Rosenfels so they will likely be in the market for a new signal caller in the near future. Texas’ Colt McCoy is a controversial player and while you can’t question his college resume there are still some legitimate concerns about him as a pro prospect. On the plus side he has adequate size, is an above-average athlete, extremely accurate and earns rave reviews when it comes to his leadership ability and work ethic. Colt McCoy | Texas Longhorns On the other hand he does not have a great arm and doesn’t exactly play in a pro style offense for the Longhorns. McCoy may not be the Top 10 pick that some have made him out to be but there is a chance he will come off the board late in round one. The Vikings could also be on the lookout for another defensive tackle to eventually replace 37-year-old Pat Williams and don’t rule out a versatile running back who can be a receiving threat if they lose Chester Taylor in free agency.

29. MIN: Vince Oghobaase, DT, Duke
The Vikings defensive tackles are not getting any younger and it is time to bring a youngster into the mix. Vince Oghobaase is the best thing that Duke has to offer as far as football is concerned and at 6-6, he has the biggest frame of any of the top linemen prospects.

Reach (-2) Minnesota
In order for the defensive line to remain a strength for the Vikings, they'll need to start incorporating some fresh blood as Pat Williams begins to show his age so grabbing Austin would make sense. CB Syd'Quan Thompson makes sense as well as he seems to be built in the mold of Antoine Winfield. - B STott (Drafttek Vikings Analyst)

One thing I did come away with out of this, is that everyone expects us to be in the NFC championship game.
Over 90% think we are going to be beaten by NO.

I don't know about these D tackles but everyone seems to be giving us a different player at that position.

Unless you have a guy that drops like Harvin or Moss or Rothlisberger or ..........
I think you have to have a position in mind.
BPA at the positions of most need.


Most need IMHO = DT, QB, S

Need future replacements.
Heck we might have the DT already on this team.. our subs have been contributing.
Maybe we add CB to that list to groom someone for Winfields spot in a couple of season from now in case Asher Allen pulls a McCauley.

BPA is the only way to go.

Where everyone seems to see need I see young players that haven't matured enough to properly judge.
i.e. Tyrell, Asher Allen, Paymah, and Robison.
Even if it's a RB.

Excellent point.

Don't forget to put Guion in that mix.

My guess is he has some sort of strange inkling that if they do make a forum for offseason stuff like this we will start to make more threads.

Then threads like WWYD, "Interactive Rodgers Sack Tracker", "Interview Thread", "Whats on your Ipod", ect will get lost in the shuffle.

Don't know enough about any of the players, however, looking at the positions they project as possible selections (QB, S, LB, DT, RB etc) can't argue with those.

Judging by the little I can find out there, Spielmans history (albeit short) and our needs, we will go BPA with our first pick and move in the second for a QB we can develop over a year or two.

Serves two things......

1.
Gives us depth at a position that we will soon need to fill (DT, LB, RB, etc)
2.
Gives us leverage when discussing contract with TJ.

I hear ya my friend.
Right now though, I really don't care about the actual position teams are slated.
Way to early to tell in most instances.


Right now, as I don't follow the college game much, I like to read them so that I can familiarize myself with the collegiate cats that will be available.

Nice! Doing a thread like this myself over at PackersHome.

http://packershome.com/index.php?name=ForumsPro&file=viewtopic&t=6698

Shameless plug, I know.

Anyway, a QB looks like a great pick at this point. With his extention, Chilly now has time to groom another QB before getting fired. Go the Aaron Rodgers way. McCarthy coached him up to the level he's at now. Snatch the QB that falls (if one will, of course) or go with Snead or Pike. You can afford to trade up.

Brad's a QB guru, right? This is his chance to redeem himself and get the franchise in a position to be a contender for years to come.

LOL, alot of draft threads out there on the boards my friend.
Plug away.
Cats like me love to read em.

Great point on the "Time" available.
Truth be told, this staff has gone after a QB each year.
Don't think they will stop now or even next year even if they do land a "Franchise" guy.
Our biggest problem at QB right now is that the last 2 regimes didn't keep working the position.

Anyway, I don't like the bottom tier first rouders.
Really like what I read about both Snead and Pike.
Thats why I think the staff will opt to take a BPA guy in the first and make a move to get one of them in the second.

Even more so this year, its gonna be hard for rookies to crack this roster.
Why not give up a pick for a QB.
