Last year in our 2 round draft I selected Maurkice Pouncey, and Sean Lee. Maurkice Pouncey was selected 18th overall by the Pittsburg Steelers and proceeded to have a Pro Bowl year. I'm not sure if this was why the Vikings decided to trade back with the Lions. Sean Lee was picked up right before the Viking's pick with Dallas's pick at #55. He did have some nagging injuries in the offseason limiting his play. Towards the end of the season he came on strong as he intercepted Peyton Manning twice... one of which was for a touchdown.
No trades or FA's will be used in the mock draft. More after the jump... and I will be selecting this upcoming Monday.
To recap the official 2010 NFL draft... the Vikings selected:
Round 2 Cris Cook CB
Round 2 Toby Gearhart RB
Round 4 Everson Griffen DE
Round 5 Chris DeGeare OT
Round 5 Nathan Triplett LB
Round 6 Joe Webb QB
Round 7 Mickey Shuler Jr TE
Round 7 Ryan D'Imperio LB
Biggest losses from my eyes were Chester Taylor (replaced with Gearhart), and Brett Farve (big ...hole).
I really didn't get a great chance to see these new additions play in 2011. How do you all feel about there contributions in 2010, and the possibility in the future. What is everybody's perceived positions of need? If I can't get an elite QB in the 1st what about a OT? Since Sidney Rice isn't under contract what is the opinions of taking a WR in the 1st (I'm thinking possible 2nd round if Locker isn't there)?
Thanks for all suggestions
