They are dumber than I ever imagined they could be. They could have taken Fairley, Bowers, Amukamura, Castonsa and still gotten Ponder in the 2nd round, or even gotten a QB via free agency. It shows you what they think of Webb.

I thought they could have traded down into the twenties and got the 3rd rounder Childress wasted as well as taking ponder with the (22-28) pick . But after gabbert and locker were gone the next best was ponder . I think he's a winner and something tells me they will get a steal in the second round. I though Detroit made a good pick after us. Whatever GO VIKES!!!!

Worst pick I could ever believe. Fire those two clowns. Frasier's stupid victory against the Eagles set this team back years. Move to LA and hire winners to run the staff not these two clowns...

Man, everybody's an "expert" come Draft Day...
I like the Viking's draft; filled some holes, took a couple of chances, hey, it's ALL A CRAP SHOOT, KIDS.
Every player, every position...risky!
Vikes obviously did a lot of homework, and know a heck of a lot more about these guys than you or me.
What I really like: they drafted smart, hard-nosed football guys. Maybe they pan out, maybe they don't.
But I like drafting smart, tough guys over glamor picks with pedigrees.

I didn't like this pick at first but it's starting to grow on me.
