Which College Players Are Future Vikings Week 10 Review and Week 11 Primer

Stephen Dunn

The first ten weeks of college football are in the books. Alabama played just well enough to beat LSU on the road which is impressive. Kansas State continues to roll on and even held on when Collin Klein left the game. My Trojans could not stop Oregon and they were able to get at least a few stops against my boys. Oregon has a good offense but that defense is suspect. Notre Dame really should have lost but got lucky. Not impressed with that victory at all. Georgia handled Ole Miss and Louisville is quietly playing a really good season. Texas A&M beat Mississippi State pretty well. Boise State was upset. West Virginia lost again. And Arizona was shellacked by UCLA. I guess they were still too happy from beating USC last week. Sweet.

The Player of the Week is another tough call this week.

Aaron Murray was 21 of 28 for 384 yards with 4 TDs
Tyler Bray was 29 of 47 for 530 yards with 5 TDs
Tyler Bray was 29 of 47 for 530 yards with 5 TDs
Teddie Bridgewater was 19 of 28 for 324 yards with 5 TDs
Ray Graham rushed for 194 yards on 24 carries with 1 TD against a tough Notre Dame defense
Marqise Lee had 12 catches for 157 yards and 2 TDs.
Cordarrelle Patterson had 9 catches for 219 yards with 1 TD
Justin Hunter had 9 catches for 181 yards with 3 TDs.
Manti Te'o had 6 solo tackles & 5 assisted tackles which includes 2 tackles for loss, 1 sack, and 1 interception.

But the winner goes to ...

Kenyon Barner who rushed for 321 yards on 38 carries with 5 TDs against an apparently not very good USC defense

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 suffered another tough loss. Where we go from here is anyone's guess. Now the team is 5-4. The real tough part of the schedule is coming up too. Right now I think we could be looking at 7-9 as the final record this year. So I am going to put the Vikings drafting #12 this week.

12. Jesse Williams DT Alabama Sr 6-3 320
42. Terrance Williams WR Baylor rSr 6-2 205
74. Quinton Patton WR Louisiana Tech rSr 6-2 195
106. Jonathan Bostic ILB Florida Sr 6-1 246
113. Rick Wagner OT Wisconsin rSr 6-6 318 * from Lions
138. Robert Alford CB Southeastern Louisiana rSr 5-11 184
170. Phillip Thomas SS Fresno State rSr 6-1 215
172. Devin Taylor DE South Carolina rSr 6-7 267 * from Titans
202. Kyle Long OT Oregon Sr 6-7 312


UDFA
Kapron Lewis-Moore DE Notre Dame rSr 6-4 306
Chris Jones DT Bowling Green Sr 6-1 292
Manase Foketi OT West Texas A&M rSr 6-5 320
Ryan Allen P Louisiana Tech rSr 6-2 215
Brandon McGee CB Miami (Fla.) Sr 6-0 197
Sean Renfree QB Duke rSr 6-4 225
Braden Wilson FB Kansas State rSr 6-3 254
Greg Reid CB Valdosta State Sr 5-08 186
John Boyett FS Oregon rSr 5-10 205
Dexter McCoil FS Tulsa Sr 6-3 222
Keith Pough OLB Howard rSr 6-2 235
Marquise Goodwin WR Texas Sr 5-09 180


I had to stick with Jesse Williams as my first pick. Only way I take another DT is if Hankins or Lotulelei are available. But Williams is good in his own right.

I felt that doubling up on the WRs early is the right thing to do. Jenkins, Aromashodu, Burton, etc are really not offering much thus far. Simpson may not even be back depending on the contract they offer (if they even offer one). I doubt Childs will be back and if he is then I do not think he is going to be very effective. So the team needs some help. There really are not any free agents. If they want to sign Bowe then they will be spending a lot of money on the WR position because you know they have to hook up Percy. They may sign a cheap WR who porbably will do just a little.

Drafting two young WRs allows the team to try and groom them for a year or two before they can start to play more.

I like Bostic. He is going to have to run fast or I may have to drop him.

Wagner has played left and right tackle and may even be able to play guard. Kyle Long (son of Howie) looked good against my Trojans. He was playing guard too.

I had to add a corner and safety because you never can have too many and some of the ones we have are not that good. So may as well try to find someone better no?

I think if Devin Taylor falls to the 6th round he may be worth a pick there.

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
