Very descriptive post about Boyce, I can see why he is your favorite choice. Really makes me want to convert to patriotism.

My favorite pick was the Cordarrelle Patterson selection.

I originally had him as a top 5 prospect, i guess i was really high on him given his fantastic size, elite athleticism, change of direction ability and long speed. As a rookie, Patterson will return kicks and possibly punts, and while some say he may be raw as a WR, Patterson seems very willing to put in the work to learn the playbook.

I really liked this move because it gives the Vikings an explosive YAC receiver, and the prototype for the position at X WR. Worst case, you throw a bunch of bubble screens to Patterson, ala Harvin last year, and he should burn defenses after the catch as he did in college. His size is fantastic for the X position, which is where Patterson is learning to play initially. I think Patterson gives the Vikings a true X receiver, unlike Michael Jenkins and Percy Harvin last year, who can stretch the field, be a dynamic YAC receiver. You can see elite potential with Patterson and it will be interesting to see if he can develop the skills as a route runner. Learning from Greg Jennings will surely help.

Adding Patterson really helps to complete the Vikes receiving corps:

Greg Jennings (flanker, split end and maybe slot)
Cordarrelle Patterson (flanker or split end)
Jerome Simpson (flanker or split end)
Jarius Wright (slot)

Jennings and Wright are more your good route runner types, who are smart, reliable and have the ability to make plays all over the field. Jennings can play any WR position, Wright fits the slot nicely. Patterson is unique in that he could probably play any spot, but he will get the most value at either split end or flanker. Simpson really isnt a YAC receiver or underneath threat, which is why Patterson fits nicely, but Simpson has big play potential.

In the end, if Patterson can progress quickly and Simpson can regain his 2011 form when he was healthy; the Vikes have a potential dangerous set of receivers.

While a rookie like Robert Woods may have the perception of being an immediate impact receiver, I never thought that he particularly added much different then Jennings and Wright. Patterson should help the offense on so many levels and he should really help bolster a WR corps that looks pretty damn good on paper.

Eddie Lacy/Johnathan Franklin

Our offense has been dominant at times with the likes of Brandon Jackson, James Starks, Cedric Benson, Alex Green and John Kuhn as the main RB. Some of those guys are OK but Lacy and Franklin bring more talent to the table than we have had in a long time. Both can play all 3 downs also, a weapon we really have never had. The addition of a decent running game should help set up play action and make our passing game better than it already is. It should also help our offensive line. I am excited about hopefully seeing a ballanced offense with Lacy-Franklin-Harris as a very good 3 headed monster.

P Sam Martin.

Last season, we were bottom of the league (or third from bottom IIRC) in punting average.. I think something like 39 yards per punt. His final year at App. State he averaged 45.9 (after learning proper technique as he's only been punting for 3 years...Yes, a raw punter folks). He can do it all too from kickoffs to PAT's as well.

But since punters "aren't people", I give it to Larry Warford.. he's a man-child tossing around Shariff Floyd and Sheldon Richardson like they took his lunch money. Plug & play at RG too where we allowed the most pressure from an interior lineman and gave up a bunch of sacks.

Favorite picks in this draft.

Josh Gordon WR Baylor. IMO if hadn't declared for the supplemental he would have been the #1 WR in this class

Honorable mention getting the 2nd most productive player on 3rd downs in the NFL in the last 5 years Devon Bess for a 5th rounder was an absolute steal.

For me its Robert Woods.. He might not be the flashiest but he could be the most consistent.. I keep seeing Reggie Wayne comparisons which are good, and the pick had excellent value and filled a huge need.

Yep. I can't say I blame him Laughing


For me it's Kerwynn Williams- RB Utah State. A huge steal.

Luke Joeckel, simply because improving the OL means Blaine Gabbert has no more excuses. He either performs well or he is gone
