Leonard Fournette

Where in the 1st Round does he get drafted next year and who here would pay the price to go up and get him and make him our heir apparent to Peterson?

Barring injury, conservatively he'll be top-20 (and probably will go higher). The Vikings will be picking last in the 2017 draft so it'd be way too expensive. :D

But seriously, barring an unexpected collective dumpster fire of a season he'll be priced well out of our range. I'd love to have him, though. He's a special talent.

If Gurley is worth a top 10 pick I can't see Fournette dropping farther than that. Would love to go from Peterson to Fournette to pair with Teddy in the backfield for the next 10 plus years.

Indeed. But unfortunately/fortunately we likely will not be in position to do so.
