Which College Players Are Future Vikings Week 9 Review and Week 10 Primer

New, comments

Week 9 is in the books and we have our first college football playoff rankings. It surely is not going to end up like it is now though. A lot of teams still have a chance. There were some good games last week. Ole Miss vs LSU, USC vs Utah, South Carolina vs Auburn, Ohio State vs Penn State, and UCLA vs Colorado were all close contests. TCU went off on Texas Tech scoring 82 points!

Stephen Dunn

I am sure there are other games that a lot of people will be watching. Feel free to give a shout out to those teams and list any other players you like.

Here is a mock with the Vikings picking at #8.

1.8 to the Browns for 1.14, 3.14, & 7.14

8 Kevin White WR West Virginia Sr 6-3 209
40 Arie Kouandjio OG Alabama rSr 6-5 318
72 Hauoli Kikaha DE Washington rSr 6-3 250
78 Eric Kendricks ILB UCLA rSr 6-0 230
104 Eric Rowe CB Utah Sr 6-1 201
136 Tony Lippett WR Michigan State rSr 6-3 190
168 Jake Smith C Louisville rSr 6-3 312
200 Brandon Bridge QB South Alabama rSr 6-5 235
206 Taiwan Jones ILB Michigan State Sr 6-3 252


I still believe wide receiver is going to need to be addressed early.  Getting a guard to replace Johnson is good too.  Maybe that is going to be Yankey?  Maybe not?
