They will get a stadium deal for sure. The only question now is will they get the Arden Hills location that everyone really wants.

My question is do they take Blackmon or Kalil at #3....


And if no one trade up to #2 to take a QB will the Vikings take the QB on the table?? What if its Luck available at #3???


Are we really sold on Ponder???


Will AP every be the same making Richardson a possible pick??


Can Gerhart really be the Vikings starting RB if Peterson can't return??

Will they get a package of plays that gets Joe Webb in the game every drive as a WR, TE or QB and even RB? They are missing a huge threat by not having him on the field..

Assuming both are available, the pick should be Kalil.

I say if Luck or RG3 are available, you trade the pick. There are plenty of holes to fill, and you could get a lot from a team looking to move up for either of those guys.

The Vikings organization was sold on him last year when they drafted him. I don't think you can write him off as a failure after one losing season. Get the kid some protection, and at least one capable WR and see what he can do....

Peterson is a workout freak. They're already saying he's ahead of schedule on his rehab. He'll be back...and it's not that Richardson isn't worth the pick, but I'd be extremely pissed off if they draft him at three. If Peterson can't return at all, then I think they'd have to make other plans...but until that is the case, I say you have to stick with AP and address more pressing needs with your draft picks.

Winsted Psychos wrote:

Like I said, I think AP will come back strong. Gerhart showed enough that I think he could fill in for a few games, if AP isn't ready for the start of the season.

Yeah, I think they need to find a way to get their play makers on the field more. That's all on the coaching staff...I want to like him, but I'm not sold on Frazier as a head coach yet....

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d8270bd3f/article/report-vikings-will-split-tab-for-new-stadium-with-city-state

Quote :
A preliminary agreement has been reached to pay for a new stadium to be built for the Minnesota Vikings in downtown Minneapolis, Multiple anonymous sources told the Minneapolis Star Tribune on Friday.
2012's notable free agents

The newspaper reported that the team, the city and the state of Minnesota have agreed on how to fund the $975 million stadium, with the city set to pay $150 million (in addition to $180 million in operating costs over 30 years) and the state putting up $398 million. The Vikings would shoulder the largest portion of the cost, paying $427 million.

According to the newspaper, the final agreement still needs to be hammered out, though sources said an announcement could be made next week.

Vikings vice president Lester Bagley told the newspaper that "there is no agreement. Everything is subject to negotiations. We're working hard on an agreement, but we’re not there yet."

The deal would need the approval of state and local government, along with the NFL, according to the newspaper.

On Wednesday, Gov. Mark Dayton said during a State of the State address that the parties might have been "getting close to a site, a deal and a bill" for the stadium.

Why? Why? Why? You have Rudolph... Idiots. And yes, I do have Rudolph in a dynasty league...

Vikings signed TE John Carlson, formerly of the Seahawks, to a five-year, $25 million deal.
The deal reportedly includes $11 million guaranteed. It's a shocking contract for a player who missed all of 2011 with a shoulder injury, especially since the Vikings had seemed to discover a full-time player in Kyle Rudolph. Minnesota was likely forced to overpay for a player it wanted after Carlson reportedly received interest from "at least" eight teams. The deal dampens Rudolph's outlook in dynasty leagues, and doesn't revive Carlson's as much as landing somewhere like the Giants would have. The Vikes can be expected to run a host of two-TE sets in 2012.

I guess...

Indy and Wash are obviously set to pick these two and not looking to trade so I just see zero point to it but I suppose its something they do regardless so that down the road they have some info in case one of these guys ends up being available via trade or something.

yeah, there is no way the Vikings do a move so bold as this.

Our "bold" moves consist of seeing if we can take JP Losman and spit shine him into a John Elway...it never ends well.

I don't. I don't think a Tackle should be taken this high in the draft. If you are picking in the top 5 or 10 then you aren't going to turn your team around by picking a lineman. That goes for offensive lineman and defensive lineman. I do believe that having a good offensive line is vital to a teams success, but I don't think that means that you should spend that much to get 1 tackle. Just ask the Browns what kind of success you can have by having one of the best LT's in the game. Especially the way the NFL draft has gone the last few years, most of the teams have selected a LT in the first round. That means there aren't going to be a whole lot of teams that are seeking a franchise LT. There is absolutely no reason why the Vikings can't find a LT at the #35 pick that will bookend their line long term. If I were the Vikings I would select Blackmon or Claiborne.

Vikings should trade out of this spot but instead they'll just let the timer expire and fall back a few picks with no compensation.

It's pretty rare that you can turn your whole tem around with one pick. I think it requires you hit on a start quarterback or maybe a Ray Lewis impact type player. I don't think teams should be trying to turn their team around with one pick, you're trying to build. LT is one of the premium positions, along with QB, CB, and DE IMO. There's a reason why these positions consistently get pushed up draft boards. I wouldn't kill the Vikings for taking Claiborne either because he's enother elite prospect and a premium position that is also a big positionof need for Minnesota, but I hardly think that will "turn their team around" either - they'll still have one fo the worst offensive lines in the league, questions at QB, and a lack of offensive playmakers with AD's injury.

In fairness, the Ravens should have called the trade in. But the Vikings should have been ready to turn in a draft card anyway. And in karmic retribution, the Ravens got effed by the Bears in the same way last year. You would think a multi billion dollar business could handle trading on the clock more effectively.

I'm not saying that one pick is going to turn a team around, but you don't get many 1st round picks to build your team around. I just don't think that a tackle should be a main priority for any team. In 2010 WAS and SEA picked one in the top 10 and that hasn't worked out too well. In 2009 STL, CIN and JAX picked one in the top 10 and that hasn't worked out too well. In 2008 MIA picked one first overall and that hasn't worked out too well. In 2007 CLE picked one in the top 10 and that hasn't worked out too well. Just sayin, it doesn't have a good track record is all.

This is definitely conventional wisdom but is it valid? I suspect their are plenty of GMs that just do things by the book and hence perpetuate common practice - its not a justification for whether its right or not imo.

Greg Cosell has tweeted some interesting thoughts about the value of a the LT position recently.

To me the question of which position should be prioritized in the draft is based on several factors
1) How important they are to winning a superbowl
2) Success rate in predicting success at that position
3) How hard / easy it is to acquire them in FA / via trade
4) What conventional wisdom dictates most other teams will value in the draft (if you are the only team to value position x highly you can wait longer then your absolute value chart says)
etc.

Interesting debate for sure.

I'm sad to say that while I live in Chicago, I've been a Viking fan since the mid-80's. The Vikings are going to be absolutely brutal again this year. Ziggy needs to sell the team and we need a new coach. Seriously, Frazier is just as bad as Childress.

And someone tell me what the hell was with that brutal signing of John Carlson??? THAT was the Vikings' big signing of the offseason? You give a $25 million, 5 year deal, with $11 million guaranteed to a player plays a position that you don't need. They would have been better off giving that cash to one of the FA CB's or S's. Or how about any OLineman on the market, since they had a terrible terrible offensive line last season. Or maybe a WR? Shoot, they aren't going to win anything this year, so they were even better off saving it for the future.

With the 1.03, the Vikings better trade down. I'm not sure Kallil is the answer as he isn't an elite LT. He's only the best one in this draft, whereas he would have been about the 3rd best prospect in the 2011 draft. I like Claiborne, but if the Vikings can get Janoris Jenkins in the 2nd round, I would pass on a CB in the 1st. Justin Blackmon is a beast and would be my pick at 1.03 if the Vikings are unable to trade down and then take Jenkins in the 2nd. If they are able to trade down a few slots, then my choice would be Matt Kalil in the first and then either Jenkins or the best available WR in the 2nd.

The conventional wisdom that USC's Matt Kalil will go to the Minnesota Vikings with the No. 3 overall pick in this week's NFL draft could be losing traction after coach Leslie Frazier said left tackles aren't the "game-changers" that teams are expected to choose so early.

"You've got to really weigh your options," Frazier told The Star Tribune in a story published Sunday. "Because the philosophy (in the NFL) has always been to get the game-changer. And left tackle is not necessarily the game-changer. Usually game-changers are the guys who can score you points. Receivers. Quarterbacks. So what are we measuring that left tackle against? It's a loaded debate."

That debate, according to the Star Tribune, is if an All-Pro left tackle wins a team more games than a skill-position player. Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said last week that the team is only considering Kalil, LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne and Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon with the No. 3 pick.

Left tackle Jake Long was picked first overall by the Miami Dolphins in 2008. But Kalil, considered to be a safe, elite talent, might even slip out of the top 10, according to Greg Cosell of NFL Films.

Kalil will be the first tackle to come off the draft board Thursday, but perhaps won't align with a team's need as early as many assume, Cosell said.

The draft's third overall slot has become the most watched, because the Indianapolis Colts and Washington Redskins are expected to take quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III with the No. 1 and No. 1 picks, respectively.

Really? According to Frazier's own criteria, they're considering three players, and two of them are not "game changers."

Both the Rams and TB want Richardson. I really think the Vikings will trade down, get an extra 2nd rounder and take Kahil with the 1.05 or 1.06. If the Vikings take Claiborne and Cleveland takes Richardson, TB is kind of screwed. And STL would have to settle for Blackmon only if TB doesn't take him. I think TB and STL both want to jump Cleveland, but it'll depend on what the Vikings are demanding for the 1.03.

CBS Sports' Charley Casserly reports that the Bills want to trade up to draft USC LT Matt Kalil, and would throw in a second-round pick to pull it off.
The Bills would presumably trade up to No. 3 and send the Vikings, at least, picks No. 10 and 41. Kalil would give Buffalo a long-term solution at a position that has seen Jason Peters and Demetress Bell come and go over the last few seasons. The Vikings are surely fielding offers for No. 3 from all over the league, but will be hard-pressed to land a better complementary pick than No. 41. Of course, this story may also have been spread by Minnesota in order to create a market for the third overall selection.



I don't think the 1.10 is high enough to make it worth it. There won't be an elite player at 1.10 and the player at #41 overall will be able to help out the team (safety probably), but not worth it. Hopefully the Vikings don't trade down further than 1.06 and still gain a 2nd.

Kalil would give Buffalo a long-term solution at a position that has seen Jason Peters and Demetress Bell come and go over the last few seasons. The Vikings are surely fielding offers for No. 3 from all over the league, but will be hard-pressed to land a better complementary pick than No. 41. Of course, this story may also have been spread by Minnesota in order to create a market for the third overall selection.



I don't think the 1.10 is high enough to make it worth it. There won't be an elite player at 1.10 and the player at #41 overall will be able to help out the team (safety probably), but not worth it. Hopefully the Vikings don't trade down further than 1.06 and still gain a 2nd.

Meh some people project them drafting Blackmon. At 10 they should be ale to land Floyd which is just as good IMO.

I don't see it happening though.

The Vikings don't need more picks... that's just more chances to fuck everything up!

Yeah, that's true. Probably their best draft strategy was trading away their draft pick for Jared Allen....any team out there have a stud LT/WR/CB/S they want to trade for the 1.03???

I just posted this in Utah's Mock Draft thread, but thought it would be worthwhile to copy/paste here too:

Vikings just traded 1.03 to the Browns for 1.04 along with an extra 4th, 5th and 7th rounder. What are the Vikings doing? They just gave up all their leverage for 3 late round picks, in which only 1 of them will probably make the squad. At the very least WAIT UNTIL YOU'RE ON THE CLOCK. Let Cleveland sweat it out and force them to give up a 3rd, 4th and 5th. If they don't, then make a deal with TB, or STL. I suppose the Vikings could STILL make a deal with TB or STL or even Jax if they are scared the Vikings aren't going to take Kalil, but man, as a Viking fan, that's a downer (at least thusfar).

I just didn't think they got enough. Thought they would have gotten more from another team. In any event, the Vikings traded back into the 1st for Harrison Smith. I don't mind the player, seems like a day 1 starter, but why move up? Was Harrison Smith going to with the first 2 picks in round 2? You just gave up your extra 4th for no reason. Plus I think they gave up too much to move up. The Patriots gave up No. 126 to move up 6 spots to No. 25. Vikings gave up No. 98 to move up 6 spots to No. 29 . Once again, crappy crappy value.

Well they wouldn't have gotten 1.04 from any other team.
