Depending on draft position, I would take Kalil but if not available, the trade down slightly and take OT R Reiff. Miami will make the trade. CB round 2
King stinks, we need guys who can score everything they touch the ball.

Your right.
I just been around here since the beginning and I believe someone must keep the Donkey (Jackass) in check.

Ponder is my concern which is why I say put nothing but play makers around him. He need that to be successful. I have a 2nd rounder in mind to be our starting RB next year. Gerhart is not elusive enough to be an NFL starter.

With 4.4 speed, he can do it. Gerhart isn't fast enough, King stinks...says who? There is a pecking order, veterans get first crack, rookies must wait...that is why King is practice squad, doesn't mean he can't do it. All one must do is look at the O/L men that were on the practice squad and recently elevated, some are better than our present starters.

Wrong King was on the practice squad because he stinks. There are alot of RB's that run a 4.4 but if they don't have agility speed is a waste.
If a RB has talent they move to the top of the pecking order veteran or not. I can't believe you made that statement you understand football better than that .

I would agree with you except...the mere presence of AD will keep almost any RB in the shadows. And Gerhart is no slouch, he knows the system. None of this means King stinks, otherwise he would have been replaced by players we had more immediate needs for...ie..O/L. King is on the PS because he needed time to learn. Look at King's bio...he was to be the Bulldogs featured RB except he became academically ineligible...he ain't book smart, takes time to learn.
Quote from Rivals.com : "King is an ankle-breaker with his tremendous start-stop and cutting ability." 4.4 speed and agility. No better time to see what he's got.

The Vikings can do just as well with Zigi Wilf at quarterback.

I get under a person's skin because since 06 when I'm right I'm all-time right. We have archive to prove it.

I saw King in college the practice squad is where he should be. Gerhart, King, Booker, Jenkins, Camarillo, Aromashodu, are backups......If they start the team they are on stinks.

Ponder is a play-fake QB, he needs a bigtime be to be successful. I hope Frazier, Spielman under stand that.

WRONG...again. King has been elevated to the 54 man roster. Please take your seat before you embar-ass yourself.
