    If the Vikes don't draft Blackmon...

    They are idiots. I've been reading up alot of him, Kalil and Claiborne. You can't miss with Blackmon. I understand they have alot of spots they need to fill(You don't need to tell me that) but you just can't miss on Blackmon. The Vikes don't have a deep threat at WR and probably won't get one through FA either. They just signed Simpson(WHO!?) Pretty much a no namer. We can find an OL or CB in the 2nd or 3rd round. I'm not worried about that. I'm worried about something we havn't had since Rice in 2009 and I think Favre made him look good. Randy Moss was our last true WR.

    He's in their top 3. It's going to be either of the three. I just hope to God they go with Blackmon.

    Re: If the Vikes don't draft Blackmon...

    I know it's gonna be Kalil, Claiborne or Blackmon but they're not idiots if they take one of the other two. Odds are we'll take Kalil or Claiborne.

    Re: If the Vikes don't draft Blackmon...

    A lot of people have them taking Matt Kalil. So I guess maybe I should get ready for another classic Clones21 meltdown.

    Vikes will find a way to screw it up. They are the worst drafting team that i can remember.

    You take the BEST football player and I believe Blackmon is that.

    Re: If the Vikes don't draft Blackmon...

    i'd be shocked if they ended up with Blackmon with the 3rd pick. They have bigger needs than WR, especially with that high of a pick, and the fact that this draft is very deep at the WR position. Pending trades, I'll bet Blackmon ends up with the Rams

    Not a Vikes fan but it appears their line personnel needs improvement before picking up a WR. Top line picks go early while a good WR can be had with a later pick.

    that's not even close to true. The Vikings hit way more than they miss with first round picks.

    Why does everyone think it's a bigger need? WR is a big deal. You can build around a WR.

    Name a current team that's built around a star WR. The only one I can think of is Arizona.

    Re: If the Vikes don't draft Blackmon...

    You're much more likely to miss on a WR than a OL.

    QB with no time to throw (ie. the Vikings) can't get the ball to a stud WR. Build the line.



    and I'm calling a classic Clones21 pot stirring thread at this point.
