Reading that makes me sad about what could have been and what wasn't.

I love Patterson as a prospect though, #2 player on my "big board".

Certainly he is raw, but you can physically see player that looks the part of a true outside receiver. The Vikes will have to trade up in my opinion, if they want Patterson.

Umm, I don't want to be Mr. Negativity or anything, but...

Does no one remember what happened the last time the Vikings traded away a troublesome star receiver and tried to replace him in the 1st Round? Does the name "Troy Williamson" ring a bell?

CP is a beast. He won't touch moss's #s, but he will be a total force as a rookie. I just wish you guys had a more competent passer

yes, but that was the owner of the team, who shall not be mentioned by name, forcing a trade with no football background to evaluate players with.

Spielman and Studwell and Co have a better track record.

I'm just saying: WR is a notoriously difficult position to project, and Patterson is going to be asked to step in and replace the game's best slot receiver.

In the return game, but the fact we have Wright and signed Jennings means that he isn't like Williamson where there is clearly a 1 to 1 move, Jennings and Patterson were brought in to replace Harvin, so much less pressure, and more time to develop.

I don't think he is though. Maybe in the versatility role, but he won't get near the bulk of the load Percy got.

You can see the value of keeping Simpson now. Jennings / Simpson / Wright is already better than what we finished last year with, because Jennings is such an upgrade from Jenkins. That means whoever we take as a rookie WR can work into the lineup gradually.

Patterson might not start in the standard 2WR set at first (Moss didn't either early in his first year, it was Carter and Reed as starters). He can come in situationally and play Joker (like that Cosell Doctrine article), get some manufactured touches including end arounds and stuff from the backfield or the slot, line up at X receiver and run a few go routes and quick slants (he already runs a good slant apparently), plus return a few kicks or maybe even punts. Meanwhile Jennings can bounce to X or flanker as needed, and will be the reliable target except unlike Jenkins he can separate from coverage and unlike Simpson he's not going to drop too many first downs.

Pretty soon Patterson's getting 100 all purpose yards a game and he hasn't even had to run a precision route yet. And you better believe defences are going to have to account for him, which you can't say about most of the WRs left on the board now.

Moss played as many snaps as anyone. He was not targeted heavily early on in 1998, but as a result, was extremely effective. Moss was not fully unleashed until the week 5 MNF game in Green Bay where he was thrown SEVEM BOMBS in the game.

He caught 6.

Bombs 2, 3, 4, 6, and 7 went for catches for 190 yards and 2 TDS. Bomb 5 was a 51 yard pass interference penalty. Bomb 1 was a 75 yard touchdown called back for holding away from the play.

Like Robert Griffin said after the game, "MOSS is ON THE LOOSE!".

Soon it will be CP's turn.
