I love this pick. This guy was hurt at the combine and was knocked for his speed.

I love it. Dantzler is even bigger than Rhodes is. 6'2 1/4, physical, good balls skills, etc. I said to my buddy on the phone I wanted either Jordan Elliott or Dantzler. Elliott went to Cleveland the pick before and Dantzler was ours for the taking. Great value pick right here. He had some late first round early 2nd round buzz for a while before the combine.

I said I hope they take Dantzler right before they announced It! Needless to say I was excited when they called his name. :lol:

I like the pick. It was a very important position. We have almost 0 depth.

Gotta coach these guys up fast. They may get thrown in early.

I mean Captain Munnerlyn is also available to help teach these guys. I'm surprised we haven't brought him back on the cheap to help these new guys learn.

Could certainly see him being a deep 3rd safety if he doesn't work out at CB, but I suspect they'll use him a lot to play bump and run in man.

I still hope they get Amik Robertson and/or Kindle Vildor.

There you go again. You know more than all the scouts and people who actually do this for a living.

Yawn.

I tried watching the video link and it was unavailable. I'm going to look for game film against LSU and see how he looks.
I couldn't find video that showed every play, but this video showed a lot.
He was great in run support with a couple tackles behind the line, He also had a sack of Burrow.
Stuck with the receivers nicely and just missed an interceptions. No TD allowed and he only gave up one TD in the SEC over 2 seasons. Sounds like a player I wouldn't mind seeing much of the field.

I omit my initial reaction. The kid looks like he’s got a lot of potential. Definitely slid down to us late in the third.

He’s got range, speed, and an incredible red zone percentage in his 3 years. I would like to see him come in around 195-200 to start the season, but I think we literally solved our secondary with this draft... gladney is a dog. Dantzler seems to have some dog in him, and both have huge upside.

Then we add hand and the two safeties to learn under what may be one of the top tandems in the league this year. Pretty excited with what zim has to work with.

I think our secondary will be thrown in to the fire obviously for depth reasons, but also because I believe our front 7 takes a major step back from previous years. Losing shamar, linval, and Everton is a massive void, and even if these two new edge guys end up to be good players, it will be hard to expect the same level of play we’ve been used to. Linval was an absolute beast, and shamar was really coming into his own. Not to mention everything Everton gave us.

Hopefully this group of young guys embrace leadership of Ant and harry, and follow suit. If so we could really make some more key investments in both our lines next year, and we have the potential start of something special in Minnesota again. This could be a historic draft for the Vikings.

You're coming around. Yeah I think Dantzler looks real good. Hopefully we can bring Griffin back. We added three edge rushers, but I'm certain that Lynch will be shifted to 3T and I think he will win the starting job next to Pierce.
