...one player at any position, other than quarterback, and only 25 years old or younger, who would you add to the Vikings?

I was having this discussion with some friends, and some of the answers were pretty interesting.

Love the Green pick, Gronk is another guy I'd consider. Also Patrick Peterson and Julio Jones.

AJ Green is a terrific pick for the offensive side. For the defensive side, my mind is drawing a blank right now on great 4-3 MLB's, I'd like to get an elite MLB that actually has superb coverage skills. This Tampa 2/Cover 2 scheme we run will always be limited to how good our MLB is.

Give me Jason Pierre-Paul.

DE may not be the biggest need on the team, but I believe its the most essential position for a 4-3 defense, and having Allen at RE and JPP at LE would make this defense elite.

AJ Green is very tempting though, but I think JPP is a better player at arguably a more premier position.

A.J Green or Julio Jones.

At some point I expect these guys to make up 2 of the top 3 WRs in the NFL soon.

I'd probably take Green though. Dude's a straight baller!

Joe Haden and Earl Thomas could merit some consideration as well, but yeah, it's AJ all the way right now.

A.J. Green seems like the consensus pick.

I'd take J.J. Watt.

Was just going to mention him:

J.J. Watt

2011:

16 starts
56 tackles
5.5 sacks
4 passes defended



Toss up between him and Green. What a beast.

For everyone who is taking AJ Green, why him over Julio Jones?

James Laurinaitis would be perfect in our defense.

Julio Jones is a great reciever, but A.J. Green is just a level above him in most aspects. So fluid, so elusive after the catch, unbeatable in the jump ball. Pure speed is the only thing Jones has on him, and not by much.

Jones is part of a unit that has Roddy White, Tony G and Matt Ryan. A.J. Green completely dominated last year, despite being doubled most of the time, and with Andy Dalton throwing to him.
