Firstly, love the presentation and the organization, Lil Uno. Thanks for it!

I have not seen much of Fales up to this point but I just watched the videos you posted and I am very, very intrigued. Looks like his supporting cast at SJSU was horrendous but he himself possesses impressive footwork and generally makes intelligent throws. I like what I see. Bridgewater is obviously my favorite prospect, but I want to see much more of Fales now.


Appreciate it. Finished the LBs, just DBs left to do.

I like Fales as well. He did well with serviceable weapons but I'm more impressed by his physical attributes. He only has average arm strength and size but possesses tremendous footwork and decision making for his age. His accuracy is also above average. Would love Fales if Ponder where to fail this season.

The QB class as a whole is very intriguing. As I've said before there are several Redshirt Sophomores who could shake up the system. Brett Hundley and Marcus Mariota are two of the top guys in the category. Guys like Tajh Boyd and Aaron Murray possess great all around skill sets but are lacking in size. While guys like Logan Thomas, Zach Mettenberger, and Derek Carr all have the potential to be early picks but have to prove themselves this season. There are A LOT of QBs jocking for positioning behind Teddy Bridgewater. Will be fun to watch this season.

My early 2014 man crush for the Vikings is CJ Mosley. if add a little weight he can be a great MLB.


I think Mosley will be a great OLB in a blitz heavy 4-3 team or even a 3-4 squad. He is great all around player but really excels at bending and getting after the QB.

Another one of my early favorites is Dion Bailey, OLB/S, USC. He is an underclassmen but I love this kid. Goes 6', 210 and played LB for the Trojans this year. He will move back to Safety for this season. He runs a 4.5 and has outstanding ball skills. I want to see him more in deep coverage but I would love to see him next to Harrison Smith next year. He plays like a LB but is fluid like a DB, he is the type of guy you can match up with the new era tight ends.

You've got the Vikings drafting 25th, but being the 6th seed in the NFC and losing the division again to the Packers. 8 of the top 10 teams (drafting at the bottom) are from the NFC; the worst 5 teams (drafting at the top), and 9 of the worst 11 are from the AFC.

That can't happen -- the playoff teams all get seeded in the last 12 spots, so a better record that finishes out of the playoffs in one conference picks before a worse record that makes the playoffs in the other.

Just a random nerdy observation.

Yup, I realized that once I was nearly finished. I just did the order based on my own personal power rankings, not how I think the season plays out. Very Happy

Not really high on Lynch from a mental standpoint, considering the way he handled his situation in South Bend.

Perhaps he's grown up a bit since then, but it's be hard to take that chance with Johnson sitting there.

His character is definitely in question but if he gets himself together mentally, I wouldn't hesitate to put him just a notch below Clowney. Lynch was dominant as a freshman and would have easily been a Top 10 lock had he stayed at ND.

I'm not sure how Minnesota will handle their DE situation, but I expect DE to be a high priority next offseason. Probably ahead of ILB, IMO.

Yeah, he projects to be a dominant player, but we'll have to see how that year off changed his game, and whether or not he's got his issues under control.

I don't know that DE will necessarily be a premium position of need, not nearly as much as an 3 down LB, pending the performance of this new crop of guys.

I personally see the Vikings needs going in to next season:

MLB
LG
RG
NT
DE
S
C.O.P. RB

And of course QB shoots up that list if Ponder doesn't perform well this year.

How do you guys think Johnny Football will do in the NFL?

I actually like Ponder though unlike some of you.

Wow. Now you really have me intrigued. I'll watch the QB situation in the college ranks particularly closely this season. We could very well be looking for our franchise signal-caller this offseason, so it's good to know there seems to be a bevy of options early on (which prospects are ranked where will surely change once the games get going).

Fales, in particular, I'll have to keep an eye on.
