Not that impressive, Cedric Benson is the best back in the draft, he has been overshadowed by cadillac and ronnie because he didn't work out at the combine.

Most of the tackles he broke there wont be breakabe at th nfl level
And he is doing that on fresh legs because of Williams, a luxary he wont have in the nfl.

Very true. If Williams and Edwards are gone, go Cedric Benson, he was very successful in all 4 of his college years.

Plus Benson is a td machine, and we tend to stall near the goaline. We could really use a battering ram like him.

Goal line thing will get worse without moss to run the flare.

Benson would be a better pick, just thought you would all like to see a reel.

I don't see how it would happen, but if Benson and both the LB's were at number seven who would you take?

First off, I would rather Barron for reasons I have explained before than Benson. Of course, this scenrio would mean that Mike Williams would have already been taken off the board.
But, I would take Barron above all of them in this type. Of course I will probly write contricting statements toomrow, but heres why.
1.We are now pimped up and primed for whooping people at the linebacker postion, some people will move around, but in a 4-3, the changes arent to hard.
2.Good OT make good runningbacks, even if they are not talented(See the whole Baltimore running game)
3.A good running game makes for a good passing game.
Those are my reasons, and as for tonight I am sticking to them, but being a vikes fan in this draft means your opinion changes daily.

I like your comments Andrew91. I would love to see the Vikes draft Barron. But, then I'd like to see the Vikes draft about a half dozen players. Why oh why can't we just have them all?

Only if we traded for more picks, but it wouldnt be worth it Sad
Yeah, it is frustrating that we can only pick two..and only one top prospect...

Are you talking about Alex Barron, the left tackle???

Seriously, they have Bryant Mckinnie already... and Barron is a LEFT tackle, NOT a right. (I know you say "well move one of them" but when it comes to tackles its rarely that simple)

Barron is, from most of what you can read on him, a VERY good pass blocker at LT, but not as strong of a run blocker (the words I've seen from the NFL analysts were "average run blocker")

Hes just not worth the Vikings burning the #7 pick on, when they have a pretty good O-line already... and with Kliensasser coming back now, that will hugely improve the run game.

It just doesnt make sense to me.
