The Vikings draft

284 posts in this topic

So far everything is pretty much going as expected.

The Raiders made a big time reach for DHB. No suprise though. Al Davis has officially lost it. He drafts according to the stopwatch. No wonder they always draft in the top 10.

Harvin - WR.

Now all they need is a QB to throw to him!! lol

Yea, I sure hope the QB position isn't the one thing that holds us back this year. Looks like we have got some weapons on offence now.

LOL!

We had Oher in our lap and we went with Harvin? If he gets his [PoorWordUsage] in a pile we'll be alright. The guy is electric.

The Pack are really working on that new 3-4 defense they plan on using this season.

OK. The Vikings take a wide receiver who should have more than enough so called red flags. He was banned from high school sports in WV or wherever he played for cripes sake. Tested positive for drugs in the combine. Plus who knows how much more this fine upstanding citizen has gotten into. If this doesn't show what a complete [PoorWordUsage] Chilly is, I don't know what does.

Oh, I believe they still need someone to throw the ball to him, providing of course he is not in jail by the time the season starts.

First time Harvin gets in trouble Chilly will hear it. Do I hear the wizzanator coming back? smirk Do we have a 2nd? I hope there are some good tackles left over. All the ones we could have had were there and are now gone. Vikes must think there will be a good tackle left over. They better not blow their next pick other than a tackle. Looks like Patriots are reloading for another run. What's up with defenses switching to 3-4? Are players getting that more athletic? I noticed a lot of good LB's this year going late. Do you see the vikes going that way in the future?

The Vikings have a 2nd (54th), a 3rd (86th), no 4th, a 5th (158th), no 6th, and two in the 7th (221 & 231).

They passed on a couple man beasts on both offense and defense. Imagine!

I think Phil Loadholt is still out there. I believe he played at Oklahoma? I heard he might be alright. I also believe there is one other OT out there(Beatty?).

4th rounder for Sage. We have a 2nd this year unless we traded it for something that they haven't said yet. Plenty of good tackles left in this draft.

BTW I like the Harvin pick. I can agree that we did need a lineman, either defensive or offensive, but we dearly needed another weapon on offense too. I really hope the kid can keep his nose clean, cause if his play in college transfers over to the pros, he will be pretty darn good.

Harvin is a great paly maker, but like it is stated, 1st time he messes up there will be no end to it!

i like the percy pick...its more exciting then an oline guy although i know how bad we need one but i still think we can get a good one in this draft and/or a decent free agent.

I am satisfied with the first choice. I just hope they toy with the wild cat this year.

Vikes pick up a big tackle in Loadholt from Oklahoma. Whew, at least they addressed a glaring need on the line.

The Browns were a little trade happy today, I think I would rather have a higher pick than keep trading down like they did.

PA made a good point the other day about Harvin- if you are going to the combine, wouldn't you lay off the smoke for a month or so? Kind of stupid to go ahead and smoke anyway.

Little different spin here. Chilly put his neck on the chopping block with the first pick... Was going to be there anyway. We all hope for the best. Second pick filled a need.

How about that draft coverage? Worst I have ever seen/heard. Had full ESPN coverage until about 15 and then muted and tuned in KFAN. ESPN obviously had insider info or a big delay to always be able to cut to the guy on the cell making his posse smile. KFAN? Nice time management to talk through the picks. Interview with a special teamer almost talked over our pick and it amazingly wasn't vox.

Loadholt is a monster. He doesn't really fit our ZBS but apparently Childress fell in love with the guy. Maybe we will do a little more power running.

    • The walleyes (current strong) I catch on Rainy fight harder than any bass I've ever caught. 
    • That's what happened when a mouse ran up Del's leg. He peed all over the carpet. 
    • cool info here....   http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/education_safety/safety/ice/ice_stats.pdf
    • Anyone fall thru the ice with a floating jacket or bibs? Any take on it? How about going thru WITHOUT floating jacket and pants? Any take on it? What if you fall in? What should you do if you fall through the ice? First, try not to panic. This may be easier said than done, unless you have worked out a survival plan in advance. Read through these steps so that you can be prepared. Don't remove your winter clothing. Heavy clothes won't drag you down, but instead can trap air to provide warmth and flotation. This is especially true with a snowmobile suit. Turn toward the direction you came. That’s probably the strongest ice. Place your hands and arms on the unbroken surface. This is where a pair of nails, sharpened screwdrivers or ice picks come in handy in
      providing the extra traction you need to pull yourself up onto the ice. Kick your feet and dig in your ice picks to work your way back onto the solid ice. If your clothes have trapped a lot of water, you may have to lift yourself partially out of the water on your elbows to let the water drain before starting forward. Lie flat on the ice once you are out and roll away from the hole to keep your weight spread out. This may help prevent you from breaking through again. Get to a warm, dry, sheltered area and re-warm yourself immediately. In moderate to severe cases of cold water hypothermia, you must seek medical attention. Cold blood trapped in your extremities can come rushing back to your heart after you begin to re-warm. The shock of the
      chilled blood may cause ventricular fibrillation leading to a heart attack and death! 
    • dont be surprised if ya catch a REB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well see their ya, go. Now fight that on a 26" rod. Can we both agree then that Walleye's can give up a little fight?
    • Here's a 12lber from this summer, though    
    • Maybe you can just carefully pull the right cable through with the old one but doughtfull if you got the foamed version.
    • Looked in every hole I could find. Hope I got it all but will leave out the traps for a few days.
