Re: Vikings Draft Picks

The thing is, time shouldnt tell. We should have drafted a member of the Oline that was ready to play from day one. We didnt, we decided to get a CB/ST guy. It was a big mistake because we needed to at least try to make an effort to upgrade the Oline this year. Unless they are figuring this team wil...

Re: Dalvin Cook breakdown and expectations

I'm afraid that he won't be the same RB after the injury. I'm also worried that even if he is the same he won't last. Non-contact injuries like the one he had don't inspire a lot of confidence for me. I hope he can stay healthy and retain that spark he had but I'm glad we've still got Murray on the...

Those are not remotely similar. We gave Cousins $84M. Guaranteed. All of it.

If he flops, its going to be hard to justify keeping a GM who made that massive of a mistake. I don't think you get a mulligan if you miss on an "all in" move like this.

Re: 2018 Vikings: Outlook, Roster, Depth Chart

Nice write up, very optimistic. We will need all that talent this year, I think we have the hardest schedule I have ever seen.

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

We had a need to protect our HUGE QB investment. I would say 90% of the so called experts said the same thing. We need a good guard or tackle with our first pick (and imo our second pick). Ones that can play, and protect Cousins from the start of the season. We failed to do that. I am betting it wil...

Looks like Elflein won't be participating in OTAs, hopefully ready by camp.
Was there any reason why he isnt going to PTA's? A lot may be changed on that line and he is our best lineman.

Re: 5th Round Pick (2)- Daniel Carlson- K, Auburn

I think Conklin and Carlson are 2 players who can start day 1. And I bet they surprise some people. Even if we sometimes use Conklin as a large WR. Nice hands, athletic.

Re: Vikings 2018 UDFAs

Kamryn Pettway Might be a real good pickup. A good switch from Cook, and hes a big man, going to be hard to stop on 3rd and short, and goal line. Plus it sounds like he can block well, maybe a beefy FB for Cook. Why can I find any info on the 2 WR's we got? IMO we need WR more then CB. If anyone thi...

Re: Vikings 2018 UDFAs

Kinda like the Hill pick. Taller then Hughes, and better against the run. But Hughes is going to be the return man, i have no doubt at all about that. And he may be a damn good one. Going to suck to see Sherels go, hes been a favorite Viking of mine.

Re: 5th Round Pick- Tyler Conklin- TE, Central Michigan

Saw his measurables and figured he must be a basketball guy. High athleticism, we'll see if it translates on the field or he's another Bucky Hodges. I never understood the Bucky cut. He looked solid in pre season and the he was gone. Had to be more because his play was great. Didn't he get hurt? Se...

Re: 5th Round Pick- Tyler Conklin- TE, Central Michigan

I never even saw this guys name while looking at TE's. But i am ok with this pick. I think hes going to become good in the passing game, would love to see him as a FB for first downs and endzone games. And declaring him eligible near the end zone, should be fun. But he is a project guy too. Rick got...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

Who is backing up Linval? We have no one. The depth behind Kendricks and Gedeon also doesn't look very good. Exacerbated by Brothers screw up. I was thinking the same thing as to who was going to back up Joseph. My guess is it's going to be Johnson Maybe but his issue last year was run defense. He'...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

And you think Hughes will make the difference? Thats hes better then Rhodes and Waynes now? He isnt even ready to take Newmans spot. Rick picked another athlete, much like CP84, and thinks Zim can make him a star. Maybe someday, but we didnt need a guy thats this much of a project now. Unless one of...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

Great post S197. No reason for me to post what I was going to in fact. I guess I thought Rick would understand what quality linemen are at this point, but he neglects it again. Unless theres a lot more to O'Neil then Ive heard or seen anywhere.

I want to hear how Rick and Zim spin this pick.
