I liked Te'o in college but if you really look at the tape on him there is a lot of plays that he takes his self out of or he just can't get to side fast enough to make the play & this is the reason I didn't think he was worth a first round pick. I know if you look there was a few News articles & mock drafts had Te'o & Woods going to the Vikings.If you had your choice of Te'o or Patterson Who would you pick? I pick Patterson.

Look at Patterson's reaction time & how he accelerates faster then any of the receivers in this draft.

Patterson & Rhodes was both only juniors in college their young with a lot of talent. The vikes now have five first round picks in two years. wow that's some pretty good drafting. three rookie pro blowers last year.

I think looking at everyones draft picks in the NFC North all four teams had some nice picks. The packers get a running back, the guy has a thick bottom half that makes it hard to take him down & Aaron not only gets a help in at RB but some G help also its about time. Cutler got his blocker & so did the Lions. I think Matt Kalil would have been the number one pick in this years draft don't you?
