Not a terrible pick, but... really.

You have the worst pass defence in the NFL and a chance to get a real playmaker in the secondary, and you go offence when given the choice between players of more or less equal value.

Does Spielman care at all about winning football games?

Confused


Cover 2 is why.


+1, great job getting the most helpful guy for this team. Fills 2 starting voids, s Ponder stay upright, gives better outside running, perfect, just perfect.

That's a good reason to change. The cover 2 simply doesn't work in today's NFL.

I dont like it at all, Kalil is a finesse type LT who will get beat by power rushers.

I grade this a C.

And to top it off, the team i hate the most (Cowboys) take my favorite player. Im done with the draft, but ill be on here.

Completely disgusted.. Confused

Cover 2 is why.


The Tampa 2 is something of a misnomer, because Tony Dungy's defence didn't play Cover 2 all of the time. It was given that name because Dungy's innovation was to drop the MLB into coverage. But contrary to popular belief Dungy mixed up his coverages a lot. The reason why the Vikings have tended to sit in a soft zone all the time is because injuries, suspensions and a general lack of talent in the secondary meant that their CBs were outmatched in man coverage most of the time.

Nice pick up. Not what I wanted, but nice none the less.

I sure hope Frank is okay.

to play along - on Kalil highlights he is much bigger than his opponent in most cases.

But he is really big and frankly just a kid. In two years he will be monstrous. (I hope)

I don't think it's going to make that much of a difference in the running game. The Vikings were near the top of the league in yards/attempt last year, even with teams playing eight in the box against them most of the year.

Sure. The safest pick. Just because it's not "sexy" doesn't mean he'll bust.

Peterson got injured on the left side. Rolling Eyes
