The Vikings will make at least one first-round trade during the draft.

If there were an elite player, like Mack or Watkins on the board, I'd wait until the 2nd round or later to grab a quarterback. Even guys like Donald and Evans tempt me.

I feel like some FF posters could've given a better analysis

I'll admit, I considered him for a bit, but that was when I thought he could play guard.

@mattvensel: Another QB. MT @RavensInsider Ball State quarterback Keith Wenning visiting Ravens today, #Vikings on Wednesday, Packers on Thursday.

----

One of my favorite later round guys. With all the hype Savage is getting, I would prefer Wenning in the 7th.

The closer we get to the draft, the more I'm put off by the idea of drafting a QB in the first round. Maybe I would feel different if there was one or two guys that was head and shoulders above the rest but I just don't see a huge drop off in talent or potential in that second group of guys who will be drafted on day 2. It doesn't really matter what QB you draft in the first three rounds, I don't think any of them should start on day one.

I'd rather make a small reach for an Anthony Barr, Hasean Clinton-Dix, C.J. Mosley, ect... Then draft a QB on day 2 and give them proper time to develop.

I'm probably in the minority on this one tho.


Hi! Welcome to the Forum.

And you may be in the minority, but I've been pounding the LB or LG drum for quite a while for the 1st round pick, even before the Vikes re-signed Cassel.

My reasoning is Cassel and/or Ponder can do well enough to win, especially with the recent skill position additions to the offense. Yes, QB needs to be settled, with the right guy for the long-term (8-15 years) -- I'm not sure that guy is available at #8. So, be sure with the guy you pick that high!

I was really hoping Robinson would slide to #8 because with him at LG, the OL would be solid . . . if not scary-good-solid. However, that lil pipe dream seems to have faded into the sunset as I don't think he makes it past #6.

For LB, I'd love for Mack to fall to #8, but that likely isn't happening. So, I prefer they trade down and grab Mosley . . . Barr is a consideration, but I'm not sold on him.

The only other two I'd consider at #8 are Evans and Donald. Both/either would be picks that the Vikes don't really need to fill . . . but then again, we drafted Moss when we had Carter and Reed . . . grabbed Adrian when we had Chester. So, Evans with Jennings, Patterson, Wright and Simpson would be formidable WR corps. Donald would be help make the DT rotation a thing of beauty; although, I'd still love to see a 6'5" DE back up Griffen and a young NT candidate like Kerr or Allen drafted in the latter rounds.

In reality, I wouldn't be upset if they drafted the top CB at #8 either.

As for QB . . . obviously, I'll be supportive of who the Vikes select at any of their draft positions, but I might question the rationale a bit . . . unlike any of our other forum members Laughing Whether the choice be any of the Big 4 in the first round, or someone in Rds 2, 3 or 4, I don't see the rookie QB playing much this coming season . . . I'm totally good with that. Cool

Bridgewater was scheduled to leave yesterday but stayed an extra day in Minny today with the staff.

He was here Saturday through Tuesday.

That is why the draft is so maddening and fun at the same time.

We could really be interested in him or he could be the one guy that they have had a hard time getting a good read on.

I wonder if there is an interest in selling the farm to move up and select Bridgewater.They wouldnt spend that much time with Bridgewater if he wasnt a serious option.

They wouldn't spend that much time with Bridgewater unless there were a lot of questions that needed answering as well.

If they have three days worth of questions at this stage in the process, i doubt he would be a serious option for them at this point. That is a lot of time to focus on one prospect. My guess is they put him through a lot of classroom work, game prep stuff.
