I'd be perfectly ok with trading every pick in the draft plus Adrian Peterson if it meant getting Joey Boas on this defense.

I don't know if I'd want to give up that much, but you're right Semper, he would make a NICE addition to the defensive machine Mike Zimmer is building.

I feel if our young players develop nicely, this upcoming draft could be one where we trade up and target a certain player and not worry about how many picks we have

It's Doctson and Boyd for me.

I think both fit the split end need if Charles Johnson doesn't improve.

Boyd is more dynamic. Effective running the ball and a good punt returner. Might not be an issue though with Stefon Diggs on the team.

Doctson is a traditional X receiver, and I think Norv and Teddy would love him.

Just imagine if the young players on defense improve(Floyd, Rhodes, Barr, Smith, Griffin) and our 2 rookies have good first years (Waynes & Kendricks) and then we go out and add a Joey Boss or Jalen Ramsey 😮

I'm hoping MN does more in 2016 to put weapons around Bridgewater.

Rudolph could be replaced, his injury history has made him unreliable and the guy doesnt produce down the field, a staple in Turner's offense.

I also dont trust any of the WRs on the roster becoming a split end worth keeping over the long haul. Johnson, Wallace and Patterson all seem best suited to play flanker.

Not me. The Taylor Mays of defensive end prospects.

I might hold off a bit on Josh Doctson. Not a first rounder atm.

I think next year we may be looking at TE. If we do, how do you guys feel about Bucky Hodges, OJ Howard or Hunter Henry?

TE so meh in college these days. It's a position in flux.

Becoming so instead of one starting TE you have a rotation including big finesse receivers, plodding brute blockers, and stout h-backs.

I know most of the collegiate season will have Vikings fans fixated on the top receivers, but I'm still looking at building a dynamic and dominant defense.

I just wonder what this defense would be like adding a safety like Jalen Ramsey or Su'a Cravens.
