It's weird how secretive the front office was over late round picks

Favorite Part of the interview

Rick Spielman: "I love draft day trading."

Former 49ers coach Mike Singletary wants to be a head coach again. Since he’s currently a linebackers coach with the Vikings, becoming a defensive coordinator would be a big step in that direction.

According to Jeremy Fowler of CBSSports.com, Singletary has interviewed for the defensive coordinator position in St. Louis.

They can have him, as far as i am concerned. The LBs havent taken a step up, if anything, they have regressed.

I'm with you. I want nothing to do with Singletary.

Nick Barnett was released from the Bills. Could be a decent stop gap option at MLB.

Except that he's an OLB. He only played inside in the 3-4. He's always been outside in the 4-3.

If we can get a good MLB in the draft, he could be a decent fill in at OLB untill we get someone younger.

I could have sworn Barnett was the MLB before GB switched over to the 3-4....

who played MLB until they switched over?

wiki listed Barnett at MLB in 2007 which is before they switched over:

Barnett played in the middle for GB but he's been an OLB since.

Barnett insulted the Vikings over the years on many occassions. He's dead to me!

Barnett is an interesting option, he has played both MLB and WLB. Id consider him as a stop gap, two down player at either MLB or WLB.

I have no idea which LB will burst onto the scene; I just need to see their recorded 40 times, 3-cone drills, vertical and watch their drills to see what stands out. If the Vikings were to draft a WR with their 1st pick and a Teo, Ogletree, or Minter were sitting there at overall pick #35 or so, I'd be all over trading up.

In regard to OLB, Ogletree (today) just seems soooooo fast. Question is, does that translate into reads and being in the right spot 99% of the time? With him being a converted Safety, I have to believe his coverage skills have to be much better than most LBs . . . then again, a certain division rival tried converting a certain Mr Urlacher to OLB, and he just didn't work there -- and I don't think there's much jury time to worry about how his move to the middle played-out Wink

Teo, on the otherhand, does not seem "fast" but he's quick-ish and has a
knack for being in the right spot at the right time. Yeah, he's a playmaker, and the Vikes need another one.
