Which College Players Are Future Vikings Week 5 Review and Week 6 Primer

The first five weeks of college football are in the books.

Wow! What a week huh?

The West Virginia vs Baylor game was definitely a defensive struggle. Both defenses were struggling. Let me be the first to say that all of those defensive backs and linebackers for that matter are not going to be on any draft board that I put together. I think the skill position players for those teams are pretty good but not that good. It was like a video game.

Tennessee and Georgia, Oregon vs Arizona State, Texas vs Oklahoma State, Nebraska vs Wisconsin, and Clemson vs Boston College also participated in a defensive struggles.

Stanford got upset by Washington. Ohio State almost lost as did Boise State.

LSU struggled against might Towson yet somehow remained ranked #5. If that does not tell you that the system is rigged then I do not know what to say. They are tremendously overrated. But now the cupcake portion of their schedule is over and they have to play some tough opponents 3 out of the next 4 weeks. Even if they win them all they will be still overrated in my book. Playing North Texas, Idaho, and Towson is just unacceptable.

It is hard to pick a WR from the WVU vs Baylor game but if I had to choose one it would probably be Terrance Williams because of his size. He had an awesome game. 17 catches for 314 yards and 2 TDs is outstanding. But Steadman Bailey and Tavon Austin are not chopped liver.

Geno Smith was flat out ridiculous. 45 for 51 and 626 yards with 8 TDs! Are you freaking kidding me. I may have to put him on top of my draft board based on that performance alone.

I am listing some performances of some of the top players below. I might not have them all here so feel free to add a player who you think did really well and may have vaulted themselves up the draft boards.

Which games will you be watching and which players do you think would be great Vikings?

Here is my weekly mock. The Vikings are looking good at 3-1 right now. I am thinking a 9-7 record would be pretty good. That is only playing .500 the rest of the way. It is hard to say that they will not do it. This week I have them picking 20th.

20. Barrett Jones OG Alabama rSr 6-4 305

Since the Vikings are doing well thus far it looks like they will miss out on the top defensive tackles, wide receivers, cornerbacks, and probably Manti Te’o. So I think that Barrett Jones is an excellent pick. I would love to put him next to Kalil and have that left side locked down for years (hopefully). Maybe he will play right guard if Fusco struggles? Jones did play right guard for Alabama.

I went in a different direction with the second round pick and selected Margus Hunt who is a physical freak!
http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/story/18992316/the-freak-list-the-10-craziest-athletes-in-college-football

The young man is just scratching the surface of his abilities. I think he is likely to put on more weight as he gets older and I think of Calais Campbell when I look at his frame. I think he can be a base DE and eventually be a DT.

I grabbed a WR to keep the masses from grabbing their pitch forks. Apparently, Ponder will be no good if the Vikings do not spend a high pick on a WR. I do not like WRs in the first round unless they are sure things. Their LTI (length to impact) is usually longer than a lot of positions. Patton is a nice size/speed guy who does have some production.

I like Collins as a LB because he played safety first. Then he moved to LB and now they have him as a bandit DE in their 4-2-5 defense. He is fast and can cover which is something we need.

My next two picks I doubled up on positions that need some new blood. Marcus Davis is big and fast. His production is not that good at all but with that size and speed it is too much to pass. And he is durable.

AJ Klein is a tackling machine. He probably will not be there in the 5th round but he is right now. :)

I want to add safeties as often as possible to continue to try and find a gem or at least some decent depth. Rashard Hall is another high character guy which is something Spielman likes in his prospects.

I have had Jackson in my mocks for awhile and I really do not see it changing. We need to continue to add to the offensive and defensive lines. And that is why I picked Williams with the last pick.

I wanted to add some positions that I thought could use some competition and depth as the UDFAs.

Well there it is. I hope that you can watch your team(s) and provide some feedback on players you think that can make it in the NFL
