Cordarrelle Tries an Offseason Plan

Coaching Staff

Head Coach

Mike Zimmer (age: 57) - Defensive Coordinator, Cincinnati Bengals

Zimmer is a smart and experienced defensive-minded coaching candidate, who also fitting a 4-3 defense. Zimmer has a track record of finding and developing diamonds in the rough, while in Cinncinnatti and would hopefully be able to turn around what was a huge mess in the Minnesota defense this past year. His background also includes work with linebackers and defensive backs and tons of defensive coaching experience. Zimmer is fiery, experienced, intelligent, and perfect for this organization.

Offensive Coordinator

Tom Herman (age: 38) - Offensive Coordinator/QB Coach, Ohio State

Tom Herman is an outstanding young play caller and offensive mind. He proved so while at Ohio State this past year, as the offense shined and has made Herman a rising star in the NCAA. Herman is also a QB coach at Ohio State and has worked as a quarterbacks coach for years prior. He has developed Braxton Miller and would be ideal to also aid the next Vikings quarterback.

Defensive Coordinator

Eric Washington: Defensive Line Coach, Carolina Panthers

Washington has had the Panthers defensive line ranked 10th in 2012 and has taken even bigger strides developing an incredible unit this past year as well. Eric Washington has crafted a really talented and special defensive line unit for an incredibly scary defense in Carolina.

NFL Draft

1. Johnny Manziel QB, Texas A&M

Would like to say a few words about Johnny. In the beginning, I hated the idea and thought the Manziel fanatics were idiots, but I’ve warmed up to the idea and Bortles and Carr are huge risks, as is this, but I’d rather take the "special talent" risk over the QBs who would be fringe first rounders if not for the QB needy times. I’ll finally admit J-Football is special and what else are we going to do at number 8? We’ve got to pick a QB and this team needs a championship, so its time to take a risk.

Reminds me of: Brett Farvre and Russel Wilson

2. Louis Nix NT, Notre Dame

3. Ryan Shazier OLB, Ohio State

3. David Yankey OG, Stanford

4. Kyle Fuller CB, Virginia Tech

5. Jackson Jeffcoat DE, Texas

6. Marcel Jensen TE, Fresno State

7. James Morris OLB/ILB, Iowa
