  1. 2020 Draft Talk

    I mean, I'd pay Cousins all the money if we get a SB win out of him! Overall though, pending this postseason if we make it, I'd still like to see about drafting QB in the 1st-2nd for QBOTF. This year especially has lots of talent. If everyone can stay healthy, we are looking at a 2004 type QB draft class. After that I'd focus on DT/CB/S in the subsequent rounds. I do think OT is a need, specifically LT but I'm not sure we will be in line to draft a top OT in this draft nor do I think this draft is a strong at OT.
  2. I'm still boggled how a 100 win team can't even get 1 win off of the Yankees.They truly are the Twins kryptonite. But back to the point, I agree they need to majorly upgrade pitching to even be in contention next year. You cant rely on hitting 275+ homers a year every year. I really wish they would have pulled the trigger at the trade deadline for a huge name like Madison Bumgarner. Some kind of closer of some sort... You can't have 7 run innings in the playoffs and hope to proceed.

    Matt Ryan vs ARI or Dak Prescott vs NYJ League is PPR standard. Leaning towards Matt Ryan.

    Let's be very honest here, how many 1st round QBs have actually actually panned out to be major All-Pros over the last 20 years? You can have a successful non-franchise QB that is serviceable in the first round ala Marcus Mariota at this point but we need something a bit more. We just need to be better overall at scouting for players that fit to our offensive scheme which means that we need to keep OCs that we like for more than just 1 season. This should help get an overall better player that fits for what we want. Look at Minshew, he fits for what Jacksonville's offense needs. As for prospects, knowing the vikings, we will never be in the top 5. We always finish middle of the pack in drafts. We will not trade the farm for a top 5 pick just to get a player. As long as Spielman is in the GM seat, it wont happen nor should it! So for this year, knowing that if Tua and Herbert maintain their status quo, we will be taking a hard look at Jordan Love, Jacob Easton, Jake Fromm and Jalen Hurts(Possibly Joe Burrow). IMO each one of these QBs will sit behind Cousins for the entire season. Overall, I'd love to get Jake Fromm on this team. Dangerous play-action guy who is accurate and isn't afraid to air it out. Sure he his arm strength isn't the best in the world, but neither was Bridgewater and IMO Fromm is a better prospect. Fromm also took over for Easton and had another 5 star qb prospect thrown at him in Justin Fields and never batted an eye. Overall, he will be obtainable at our draft spot and with time, may be a better player than both Tua and Herbert.

    This is my exact thoughts! Besides, how many qbs are going to drop to us when we draft middle to late(being realistic/optimistic) when you have so many qb needy teams in the top 5-10 picks this year. I'd rather spend a 1st on a known commodity vs an unknown. Rhodes and a 1st for Ramsey would be well worth the price of admission!
  6. Buy / Sell / Hold

    12 team league. standard flex te/wr/rb.
  7. Buy / Sell / Hold

    Looking at possibly trading one of my QBs for an RB. QBs: Mat Ryan Dak Prescott Mat Ryan seems like the obvious choice between the two ATM but will I regret not having him on my roster? Also the RBs in question would be David Johnson, Leonard Fornette or Derek Henry(Long shot...). Should I trade or should I keep both?
  8. Draft Lead-up Question 8 - Final Guesses

    This! Plus when you score a single digit wonderlic and you have a torn labrum it's really a bunch of red flags for me when an edge rusher at this point can be grabbed later and developed since they arent needed to start ASAP.
  9. My last 2019 Mock (three-rounder)

    This 100%!! Little to me is now a Late 2nd-early 3rd player. That would be one heck of a reach!

    I'm all in on Jonah Williams to the Vikes! I think he's a legit LT at the next level ala Joe Thomas. Short arms be darned!! Get him in the first and maybe Dexter Lawrence(My personal favorite DT in the draft) in the 2nd and I'd be happy. Or we pickup Lindstrum or Jenkins in the 2nd to double dip on OL in the top 100 picks would make me so so happy! I'd almost move up 2-3 spots to try and jump the giants and the panthers to get Williams.

  12. Just throwing this out there. Junkyard Brewing in Moorhead is phenomenal. I've been to a bunch of places in the cities and I still think Junkyard is the best. I'm going down next weekend to MPLS to try some of those that are on the growing list to compare.

    Did a trade down draft on first-pick. Pick 18 for ARI's 1 pick in rounds 2,3,4 and then I also did a pick swap for our 1st comp pick in the 6th for the 41st pick in the 6th and then our first 7th rounder for the 2nd pick in round 7. Your Picks: Round 2 Pick 1 (ARI): Risner, Dalton, OT/OG, Kansas State Round 2 Pick 18: Simmons, Jeffery, DT, Mississippi State Round 3 Pick 1 (ARI): Bradbury, Garrett, C/OG, North Carolina State Round 3 Pick 17: Montgomery, David, RB, Iowa State Round 4 Pick 1 (ARI): Lindstrom, Chris, OG, Boston College Round 4 Pick 18: Joseph, Vosean, OLB, Florida Round 6 Pick 17: Bunting, Sean, CB, Central Michigan Round 6 Pick 41 (K.C.): Brailford, Jordan, DE, Oklahoma State Round 7 Pick 2 (K.C.): Boykin, Miles, WR, Notre Dame Round 7 Pick 36 (COMP): Worthington, Evan, SS, Colorado I highly doubt half of the drafted players I got in the later rounds would be there but overall, I'd be ecstatic for this draft! Lots of quality trench players on both sides! I do worry about Simmons but his potential at that spot in the draft is crazy for value.

    After much consideration, the Vikings should really look at trading back and acquiring more picks. The DT and interior OL class this year is massive enough to be able to afford to do so. Plus there are so many quality players in other positions as well like CB and S that are part of this class that are mid-round starters. Would really love to see Bradbury, Lindstrom and/or McCoy drafted in the first 2-3 rounds for us. then after that go for one of the top 10 DTs. We should be able to get one in the 2nd or 3rd round that is 1st round talent due to other teams needs and how loaded the DT class is. It will really be interesting to see if someone like Devin White for instance drops due to teams need for QB if we went BPA due to talent alone. Him on the opposite side of Barr would be monstrous.

    Didn't see he was slightly worse than Remmers last year according to PFF.... my bad... Rather bring Remmers back if that's the case. I just know how good the Titans line is, didnt think he was the weakest link on it.
