I really do not want to see this game to be honest. Obviously there are good prospects on the defensive side of the ball but they really did not face any good offenses. LSU faced Oregon and Arkansas but Alabama did not face anyone with a decent offense. I think that these players are overrated especially the cornerbacks.

Here is an current mock with two compensatory picks. I am hoping for one compensatory pick to be at the end of the third round and the other at the end of the seventh.

The Vikings are set to pick 3rd according to this site http://www.thehuddlereport.com/Free/draftorder.shtml.

Also the Vikings traded their 6th round pick to Washington for McNabb. I am not sure if it is a 5th. They also are set to receive New England's 7th round pick for the Moss trade, the Giant's probable 7th round pick for the Sage Rosenfels & Darius Reynauld trade, and Cleveland's probable 6th round pick for the Jayme Mitchell trade.

So here goes a draft with a few couple of trades.

The Vikings trade the #3 pick (2200 points), Christian Ponder, Chris Cook, and their 2013 1st round pick to the Indianapolis Colts for the #1 pick.

The Vikings trade Jared Allen to the Cleveland Browns for the #23 pick and a 2013 conditional 4th which becomes a 3rd if he makes the Pro Bowl.

1. Andrew Luck QB rJR Stanford 6-4 235 4.73

Of course some will say I am crazy and they would be 100% correct. :)

I think that the Vikings are going to be really, really, really, close to that #1 overall pick. If Indianapolis is willing to trade out of there then the Vikings should make this move. They will get the consensus best QBOTF since Peyton Manning. IMO they have to make this move. I think Ponder does have some skill and has had some flashes but his durability is a major concern for me. I know he is tough as nails but I think that Luck is just too good to pass.

I would even consider trading other pieces too if that is what it would take. But for the Colts this is not a bad deal and they would still be drafting 3rd overall which they could parlay into more picks if they wanted.

But the Vikings would be set at QB for the next 10 years if Luck stays healthy.

I would sign Steve Johnson and Pierre Garcon in free agency for the WR position. At least one of them for sure. It depends on how they feel about Jenkins. I also would sign Jared Gaither OT as a free agent. I have been wanting the team to get him for a long time now and they never do. I would try and sign Carl Nicks OG too. But that may be tough. Of course I would sign a couple of corners if they do not keep Griffin or Winfield which I would not. I like Brandon Carr and Richard Marshall. I would sign one strong safety too. Hopefully Tyvon Branch or Laron Landry or Dashon Goldson. They may sign a linebacker like Dan Connor too.

Feel free to add any other games or players you want and a mock too!

Happy New Year!
