Hello everyone, i have been a frequent reader here at dailynorseman but i just created an account and I would like to share the best draft, imo, for the vikings this year.
As you all know the vikings hold the 12 overall pick in this years draft. I think the vikings should trade down in the first round around the 20 spot and gain a 3rd rounder in the process. Maybe to New Englands 17th pick or Tampa Bays 20th pick. From here the vikings then should draft Mike pouncey and he should replace john sullivan at center. Then they should trade up with their 2nd round pick (43 overall) and deal their 3rd round pick they got in the previous trade, and take either Ryan Mallett, Christian Ponder, or Jake Locker. Whichever one is available. imo, the order from greatest to least would be Mallett, Locker, Ponder. But I would be happy with either one of these qbs. From these picks we helped shore up the oline and hopefully helped solve the qb problems (the rookie can battle it out with Joe webb, winner gets started this season and we ride him the hole season unless he performs extremely horrible). With the later picks the vikings should then draft guys to fill holes in the secondary, WR, and some more oline help. That is my opinion of the best draft scenario for the vikings this year! thoughts?
