  1. 2019 Draft Talk

    Swede did a great job coordinating this summary of a Vikings composite Big Board based on the opinions of people on this site: Vikings Forum's Composite Big Board 1. Devin White, LSU (LB) 2. Ed Oliver, Houston (DT) 3. Jonah Williams, Alabama (OT) 4. Cody Ford, Oklahoma (iOL) 5. Jawaan Taylor, Florida (OT) 6. TJ Hockenson, Iowa (TE) 7. Dexter Lawrence, Clemson (DT) 8. Christian Wilkins, Clemson (DT) 9. Dalton Risner, Kansas St (OT) 10.Devin Bush, Michigan (LB) 11.Andre Dillard, Washington St (OT) 12.Greedy Williams, LSU (CB) 13.Greg Little, Mississippi (OT) 14.Charles Omenihu, Texas (DT) 15.Chris Lindstrom, Boston College (iOL) Honorable Mention: Noah Fant (TE), Garrett Bradbury (C), Rashan Gary (DE) Metcalf truly was a big winner of the underwear Olympics, aka the combine. But I still would not pick him instead of any of the 18 players listed, and unless Rick trades down at least one of them, and most likely more will be available when we're on the clock.
  2. New two-round mock draft with trades

    Nice work on this. What do you think the Vikings would get in return from the 49ers for Trae Waynes?

  7. I'm no Brez or Slick Rick, but played around on Fanspeak and was able to create enough cap space to upgrade the roster enough to compete for a championship, at least imho... First of all we need to dump some salary, so I cut Remmers, Griffen, Brothers, Bower, Collins, Rudolph, Sandejo, and Stanton. Then I brought back Rudy and Everson on more team friendly deals. This created enough cap space to resign Barr, Richardson, and Tom Johnson. After that and letting fringe roster players walk, we still had about $17 million left for free agency and the draft. According to the website our biggest remaining needs were OT, OG, C, S, QB, and RB. So I made offers that were accepted to Ramon Foster and Mitch Morse, both guys that have played guard and center. That leaves us with over $8 million in cap space with draft needs now shown as OT, S, QB, and RB. I also would like to add a big bodied WR with better speed than Treadwell and a more athletic LB than Gedeon. On to the draft.....I stayed put in the 1st round and took the all purpose lineman from K State, Dalton Risener. There were a few guys I really liked that fell to the 2nd round so I traded our 2nd, 3rd, and both the later picks in the 6th and 7th for Arizona's top pick in the 2nd. Tampa Bay then offered me the 6th pick in the 2nd and 7th pick in the 3rd for our 2nd rounder and that was simply too good to resist. Then with the 6th pick in the 2nd the player I wanted was still there! 6' 3", 4.4 40 yard dash, 215 pound outside WR, Nkeal Harry from Arizona State. I stayed put in the 3rd and took the big OT from Florida, Martez Ivey. The Ravens gave us the 24th pick in the 5th to move up to 18 in the 4th. With the 24th pick in the 4th I took the athletic LB from Michigan, Devin Bush. I was done trading and took a swing at a small school QB in the 5th, North Dakota State's Easton Stick. In the 6th I took a good sized safety that led Temple in tackles and interceptions, Delvon Randall. Finally in the 7th I got a young replacement for Latavius, LJ Scott from Michigan State. 4 new members of the OL, a flashy new WR allowing both Thielen and Diggs to play some slot WR, athletic depth and/or ST, and enough space left over to give Thielen a well deserved raise. Obviously a LOT would have to go right, but I would be ecstatic! What do you think? I have ancient, leathery thick skin so show me no mercy!
  8. 2018-2019 Offseason Thread (Season Concludes)

    DJax may be too expensive. Maybe they can find one in round 3 or 4.
  9. 2018-2019 Offseason Thread (Season Concludes)

    While this season was disappointing, I don't think that Spielman, Zim, or Kirk should be given up on just yet. Spielman has to focus on the o-line in the 2019 draft, and I agree that we need a new speedy, reliable 3rd receiver. Most of the rest of the roster is very well constructed. We have at least two more years of Cousins, and with some stability at OC and the o-line it isn't impossible to imagine his best years being yet to come. Zimmer isn't perfect, but no head coach is. He holds himself, his coaches, and players accountable and I LOVE that he plays the guys that deserve to play no matter their draft status. I'm looking forward to an exciting off-season. We need to clear some cap space and resign a few guys. I think we could save money without sacrificing performance by moving on from Compton, Remmers, Latavius, Everson, and Sandejo. Hopefully get a guy or two to restructure to save some cap space (Rudy, Xavier, Smith?). Doing that should free up enough cap to sign both Richardson and Barr. Then draft well and fill the roster with inexpensive free agents. Like I've said since Hank Stram's Chiefs matriculated the ball down the field leading to our 1st Super Bowl loss, "wait until next year"!
