    Draft

    Who are they taking? Are they trading down? Which QB's do you like?

    Aaron Donald would be the best choice, IMO. He'll be there most likely at their pick, and he would be huge in replacing Kevin Williams down the line. He's being talked about as one of the three or four "can't miss" prospects in the draft, but the need at other positions is higher than DT for teams ahead of the Vikings. QBs are falling currently, so there will be a good selection later in the draft, I believe.

    I would love a trade back personally. I hope Mike Evans is in our slot and someone like SF is drooling over him.

    I'm not terribly excited about using #8 on any of the QBs.... There's a lot of talk of the possiblity of Kahlil Mack sliding down to #8, not because of lack of talent but b/c there's great match ups for other teams at other positions of need. I kind of hope he does and we grab him, giving how desparately we need help at LB.

    As I'm reading about the Vikings needs... It occurs to me... They have a lot of needs.

    I figured there was no way they pass on a QB... Maybe they should...

    It looks like they will be drafting real high in 2015 with all those needs.

    Anthony Barr is a good player, but not exactly who I wanted.
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    I would've liked to see them move back some more but if Zimmer thinks he can mold this guy into a player, I'll go with it.

    Now that was exciting. Would have preferred Donald and Bridgewater if I was picking, but they see something they can mold in Barr, who will be a project 1st rounder. Love the Bridgewater pick, though.

    Bridgewater scares me, but he scared me more at 8 than at 32. I like the moves for them. They needed help badly at LB and picked up arguably the 2nd best LB in the draft. I'm not complaining. That, and to Spielman's credit, he's done a good job in the draft.

    I like Bridgewater. I think there was too much overreaction to one bad day.

    This is a guy who ran a pro offense, completed passes at a pro rate, read defenses and called audibles like a pro, and has pocket presence and awareness. Sign me up - I'm very excited about our first day results.

    Now go get another linebacker and a DB today!

    I'm cool with Barr but Bridgewater does nothing for me. As badly as we need to solve the QB situation, this was not the draft to do it IMO.

    Bridgewater went from being the consensus #1 (or #2 if you liked Clowney) for the 2nd half of the football season and early into the "drafting season" all the way to the end of the first round because of his pro day.... and because his hands are apparently small-which is BS and pointless IMO (1/8th smaller then golden boy Bortles, and 1/8th bigger then Kaerpernick) I think the Vikings got an absolute STEAL in him. The guy played in a pro style offense in Louisville, went 31/4 and completed a good % of his passes. The fact that they worked him out privately 3 different times and worked well with Norv are all very positive signs.

    Barr is interesting, if it was anyone but Zimmer who made that pick I would be concerned, but I think the upside is huge.

    There is a very good chance that in 4 years we look back and say not only did the Vikings get the best QB in the draft, but also the 2nd best defensive player in the draft.

    I hope you are right Dave. I'd love for this to be another Aaron Rogers situation. Let Cassel man things for the season and transition Bridgewater in for 2015.

    Bridgewater at #32 is very exciting.

    Taking a guy that might be a starting QB in basically round two is a good gamble. Not sold on Barr.
    Lighten up Francis....

    There are some real nice guards, linebackers, and corners left for us to pick from here soon.

    I consider Barr to be one of those upside picks (Pro Bowler) that comes with significant downside. He's a physical freak and highly disruptive behind the line of scrimmage but can he actually play linebacker.

    That is where the trust in Zimmer comes in for me IMHO. The fact he basically switched from RB to LB and di pretty damn well is a nice sign to me. Clearly they knew who they wanted and they went and got him, gotta love the upside, reminds me of Patterson a bit who also was knocked for being "raw".
