Everson Griffen at safety, and you want us to take you seriously Bob?
Kevin Williams could probably play corner too, right?
A linebacker and a corner, but I'm with you on moving Antoine to safety.

Griffen covers punts as one of the outside guys. So, he's real fast & real agile. He needs to start. I don't care what they call his position.

Didn't they have him at gunner a few times on special teams?

Hey guys! Quick thoughts. I would love to see this kid from OK ST in a purple uniform.

He can line-up dam near anywhere in order to create a mismatch. Put him in motion and get him one v one safety and we got instant deep threat mismatch. I know the Vikes scored decently but a true deep threat like this guy would open up a lot for the TE's between the hashes', especially for Rudolph. Not to mention of course for AP......WHO WILL BE 100% COME next season. Yes sir!

Harvin was incredible this past season but he needs to be a slot guy and with the drafting of this kid he can resume that role and not have to worry about carrying that burden of being a deep threat as well.

D line should be OK for one more year age wise before that becomes a real issue but secondary does need addressed as well.........Gerhart, I thought, showed great stuff....especially when he had a head of steam behind Dimperio or a TE block, runs hard when he gets going!

Good match-ups this weekend...enjoy the playoffs even tho Vikes are not there!
