Mike Zimmer said he likes to fit the system around the players, rather than the other way around, so he got to start with a 43 to start with & see if the players can play a 5 4-3 & a nickel 3-3-5 The Vikes need other guys to play much else. The Vikes need some free agents if their going change the defense.

Could this mean they wont pick a QB with their first pick if the QB of choice is gone or will they rush & pick one like they did with Ponder pick. hmm

Tell me about it. They haven't done a true coach search for anyone of talent since Denny Green in the 90's.

My mock has Manziel But the expert Kiper has Bridgewater. I was looking at my last years mock draft & their not in the right order but the positions of the first three players was ritght I had WR DT CB & the Vikes picks was DT CB WR I did pick the Vikings three first picks . Here my last year Mock....If he is still there my first draft pick for the Vikings is WR Cordarrelle Patterson 6ft3 runs a 4.35 to 4.46 40 yard dash. My second draft pick is DT Eddie Vanderdoes 6ft3 runs the 40 yard dash in 512 secs, Bench Max 305, Squat Max 500, Shuttle,4.61 & a 30 inch Vertical He fills a big need & is a perfect fit for the Vikes. My third draft pick is CB Justin Gilbert 6ft0 205 lbs & runs a 4.35 40 yard dash has good size & speed to keep up with receivers & is a solid on the run.. My fourth round draft pick is WR Stedman Bailey 5ft10 195lbs 4.35 to 4.40 40 yard dash. & has great hands none better in college ball & has the speed & strength to brakeaway & hands down one of the best receivers I have seen. The Vikes have two fourth round picks & My other fourth round pick is QB Jordan Rodgers Yes Aaron's younger borther He is my sleeper pick stands 6ft1 205lbs runs a 4.69 40 yard dash.in 2012 he completed 60 percent of his passes for 2,539 yards & 15 TDs.& only 5 INTs. He is someone to compete with ponder & would be a solid backup. MY fifth draft pick is Jonathan Brown OLB 6ft1 235 lbs. runs a 4.49 40 yard dash. Brown had 59 tackles 9.5 tackles for a loss, 2.5 sacks, one pass batted & one forced fumble this season. My sixth draft pick is OG Blaize Foltz 6ft4 310 lbs a first team all-MWC guard in 2011,( he is a smart guy a science major) he's probably as strong as any man in college football. benches 580 & squats 800 & incline benches 530 Wow he is just what the Vikings need on the front line. My seventh draft pick is WR Marcus Davis 6ft4 228 lbs has a 44 inch vertical & runs a 4.37 40 yard dash & good hands this guy is a sleeper not many know about but is a real talent that would be a steal with a seventh pick. Note their was no MLB lol

Its not so far fetch to say the Vikes might not take a QB in the first round the could hole off & take one with one of the two third round picks. & if this happens the QB of choice would be Jimmy Garoppolo He doesn't have elite arm strength but he is efficient & has a tight delivery with a quick release. I think he worth looking into.

Either trade up to number 2 with the Rams and grab a QB or take Lee at 8 and stick with Cassel..........JMO..........S pielkman can't risk another first round bust at QB..........if he picks one at 8 he puts his neck out there..........at 2 not so much..........

Hi,
I'll withhold judging this time.They'll have to show me though.A Qb of HOF potential is a must.We're way over do in that department.I have a few in mind.

Wait what? The vikes are" back"? Didn’t you say that last year? "Back" to what exactly?

“Back” to being the “Offseason Champions of the World” again! Yep Back to back to back!

Welcome back BP! We missed you and your endless hope and optimism for the vikings. Here’s to another offseason of high hopes, BSing, and waiting for something interesting to happen. I hate the offseason, you must live it.
