The fans boo mixon and cheer Jim Brown. :confused:

Mixon is anathematized, Brandon Marshall gets his own TV show. :confused:

Excellent pick! Now THAT is the type of electric player they need!

Get some OL and a wr or TE and I'm ready to rock and roll!

Ya...so many reports Mixon would go rounds 3,4,5--or not at all. Even with video Mixon only fell, 30 spots ? not too bad for him

I will admit I did waaaay to many mocks--prolly 100+--Cook never fell to 48. I know we traded up, but I like Murray / Cook with McKinon in the mix. I hope Asiata lands a job some where, I thought he filled in admirably.

Could be, but if they go interior OL with both 3rd rounders probably no impact DT, LB, S, or TE left.

So glad we got Dalvin Cook at #41. Tremendous value and he was well worth trading up for. I was afraid we were going to reach for an OL in the 2nd. With Lamp off the board there was no OL even close to Cook's value.

The report that Spielman spent 45 minutes on the phone with him today getting assurances that he wasn't going to bring his "friends" with him up to MN rings true. Several analysts had mentioned that it would do him good to get as far away from Miami as possible.

There was never any chance Spielman was going to take Mixon and I doubt the Wilfs would have approved it even if he had asked. Would not be surprised if most of the league had him off their board completely. Based on the interview Mixon did with ESPN last month makes me think the Bengals would be best served by keeping him away from the media.

I am hoping for Feeny OG


Been watching Cooks highlights he looks
really quick and has a nice set of skills
I know some of the big talent NFL guys said
he was the most complete RB in this draft.

Looks like the Vikings got themselves a home run hitter.
