I LOVE the Te'o pick for the Vikings.

As someone mentioned earlier, the viking's offensive weak spot is WR. BUT we've only had Simpson playing for 2 weeks, Percy is KILLING it at everything he does, Greg Childs is injured, he would've had a big role on this offense.

It's been my opinion that CB and LB are the Vikings weakest points. They drafted a speedy CB in Josh Robinson who is learning from the best tackler in the league, Antoine Winfield, and is turning into a great steal in the 3rd round. They also grabbed AJ Jefferson from the Cardinals, who has had some hard times in Arizona, but no-one doubts he has the physical assets to be another great steal. Plus, he's being coached by Leslie Frazier and Alan Williams, both of whom played DB in the league. They also drafted Harrison Smith, who is playing like Joey Browner used to for us. A hard hitting, dominating safety who can cover like a blanket in his cover 2 zone.

That being said, the biggest hole is now linebacker. You need a super athletic cover linebacker to play the cover 2 that Frazier and Williams play. They're not a strict Tampa-2 like Brad Childress used, but you still need a LB who can cover. Erin Henderson is overrated, even as a fan, I say that. Jasper Brinkley is great against the run, but nobody runs anymore. And Chad Greenway is 2nd in the NFL with 53 tackles already. None of these guys are great cover LBs. Chad is a pro-bowler, no doubt, but we need another stud LB who can run with the TEs in the league. Long story longer, Te'o is the perfect pick here for the defense the Vikings play.

Barrett Jones is the one OL I'd be happy drafting in the first, due to his versatility. Injuries are the biggest cause of our OL issues, and Jones is the best way to improve our backup situation with a single pick (and compete for a starting gig in the future).

Aside from all that, he fits our OL blocking scheme well.


Yeh, its a good pick for the Eagles, Jones could slot in anywhere and give us some stability.

Preseason I had projected Gholston as a top pick and possible candidate for #1 overall. He hasn't exactly lit the world on fire but the raw physical talent is there. At this point I think he would really have to dominate for the rest of the season to have a shot at moving into the top 10.

As for the Chiefs pick, I like Tyler Wilson alot and would be happy to add him as our quarterback of the future (and likely present as well).

26. Chicago Bears
Taylor Lewan OT Michigan

It has been borderline embarrassing watching Chicago’s offensive line this season. Lewan would give Mike Tice some talent to work with.


Surprisingly to everyone the Bears Oline hasn’t been an embarrassment this season outside of the GB game where the entire offence sucked…they have paved the way for an average of 4.1 YPC on the ground with is 13th in the NFL…we have given up 14 sacks but when you consider 7 of those came against GB…7 sacks in 4 games isn’t overly concerning when you look at the trend around the league…

Lewan is a talented guy and if he were the pick it wouldn’t be bad since you can never go wrong adding talent but as crazy as it sounds giving how our D has played this year we need to add more youth and playmakers on that side of the ball…namely at LB…Alec Ogletree, C.J Mosley or Kevin Minter would be great additions to our D.

Solid Vikings pick, T'eo is a very good player and would improve the LB play, but Brinkley has been solid and I don't think either of them could move to another LB position for the Vikings.

Allen would be a good pick as well.

Im a Michigan State fan and i will tell you the guy wont be a first round pick. He may be a physical specimen but hes a headcase. This whole year hes had trouble controlling his emotions and for that fact, the coaches have taken away his playing time. Id also like to point out, that hes not very good at getting off blocks. Hes just not first round draft pick material. I personally like that guy but i wouldnt want my team drafting him, hes got bust written all over him and thats not because hes related to gholston or anything, hes just nothing but a physical specimen that is above average at the college level. The big ten is just a horrible conference this year and the fact that you cant dominate in that division makes me think he wouldnt even start in the SEC nevermind the NFL.

Stay away

Steelers have much bigger needs than a CB. S, OLB, ILB, and OL.

Sam Montgomery for the Lions. He is a much better talent than Miliner (hes a good pick but not great).

Jasper Brinkley has been pretty decent for MN whereas WR is still a pretty big need. Allen would be a significantly better pick for MN than Te'O.

A WR trio of Harvin, Allen and Simpson looks good on paper.

I would love to watch Dalton handing off to Lattimore for years.

Banks would be a good selection.

If Buffalo doesn't manage to win at least one of the next two games, I'd love to see them deliberately tank the rest of the year and be in a position like this to get a potential franchise QB.

However, their are too many beatable opponent's on the Bills schedule the remainder of the year, and I see the Bills winning just enough to drop to the 8-15th pick range and ruin any chances of that.

Still, I'm much less optimistic than I was at the beginning of the year, based on how their losses went, but I was counting right from the start on the Bills having 2-3 losses here. Sneaking into a wild card spot isn't off the table yet, even if their play hasn't deserved such an honor so far this year.
