I dont get it, with guys like Markelle Martin and Marvin Jones there.


Why draft a slot guy when we have the best slot WR in the league. Here is where Rick is gonna start screwing up. Laughing

He's far from just a slot guy as well.

You're right, we should not offer our opinions on the pick.

Similar to Antonio Brown of the Steelers in terms of size and physicality so maybe he gets a shot outside, but I doubt it.

Tom Pelissero ‏ @TomPelissero
The #Vikings' offense runs through Percy Harvin, who struggles to stay healthy. Guess on Wright is they want a backup w/ similar traits.

Bucky Brooks' take: Wright is a slippery slot receiver with quickness and burst. He is adept at separating from defenders out of breaks, and adds some juice to the Vikings' passing game.

juice is good.

Yeah, but he beat out scrubs like Alshon Jeffery and Ruben Randle to do it...

A lot of teams passed on Moss....didn't make them right, did it?

My issue is having 9 late picks, and not using them to trade up for starters. The picks at this point are kind of crap shoots. I don't get how they have not dealt up yesterday or today.
