ok, I had to go option 2. Check out round 3 of Walter Football's mock draft. See the WR's there.

http://walterfootball.com/draft2013_3.php

78. St. Louis Rams: Robert Woods, WR, USC
79. Pittsburgh Steelers: Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor
85. Washington Redskins: Markus Wheaton, WR, Oregon State
88. Green Bay Packers: Quinton Patton, WR, Louisiana Tech
94. Baltimore Ravens: Da'Rick Rogers, WR, Tennessee Tech
96. Kansas City Chiefs: Ryan Swope, WR, Texas A&M

How many of those guys have been mocked to the Vikings in round 1? Just say no to reaching for need in rd 1.

I think they should go after DeAndre Hopkins. Might not need 1st round pick but would probably have to trade up to earlier in the 2nd. I don't get all the media love being shown for Allen and USC's Woods. Neither was a 1000yd receiver last year. Yea Allen was on a bad team with a sucky QB, but good WRs on bad teams still manage to get yards. Robert Woods is another guy who looked good last year and dropped of a ton this year. Good WRs stay consitent every year. They are getting hyped from 2011 stats while their 2012 stats are being overlooked.

I see draft a D, D, WR, D, D, then special teams fodder.

i could live with that draft. Check the tape on Quinton Patton, Stubby. Kid looks natural, fast, smooth on the field, great hands, catches over the shoulder in stride fine. I'll catch some tape of your Hopkins

I'm familiar with Patton. He's the kind of consistent player I was talking about. I like Hopkins a little more just for the size factor. Jumps balls and shielding off DBs is why you need at least one big receiver on a team.

Actually found game tape of Hopkins. Not highlights but actually tape that shows every pass thrown his way for 5 games. What his cuts both in route running and after the catch.
