I think slightly differently. I think we'll stay at 23/25 (or possible trade down), and trade up from 52 to get the WR we want.


Come to Minnesota Xavier Rhodes. I'd be very very happy.

If we did trade up, I have a hunch it could be for Sly or Manti, because both are also being targeted by teams from 18-22.

I want nothing to do with Hopkins. Lets hope Patterson falls to us or we'll be looking for a receiver in the 2nd round.

Hadley Engelhard, agent for Hopkins, tells me: "DeAndre had as much to do with it as you did." Said Hopkins checked out 6 hours before any1

Dane Brugler ‏@dpbrugler 1h
RT @alexmarvez he was told Hopkins had left the room several hours before it was destroyed. Will be curious to see how this unfolds


No concrete information at this point. It's not something that was really in the character of either player while they were with their respective programs.

I still like Hopkins, but would certainly take a few others over him. I cant imagine much coming of this.

As for trading up, my guess would be to target Cordarrelle Patterson, Xavier Rhodes or one of the DTs. Patterson is my choice. I think he is a top 10 talent, but obviously needs a lot of work to develop as a football player. Im confident that he could pick up the offense working with Jennings. Id move up for Patterson if he fell to that 17-20 range. I think he could end up going higher than most anticipate.

My gut tells me if we move up it will be for Sheldon Richardson. If the Bucs move their first to New York, there's a good chance he slips a bit. We would likely trade up in front of Dallas and New York for him at 17. The Vikings have had serious intrest in Richardson for some time now and he fits the mold of the 3 tech the organization has been talking about.

It could also be they want to move ahead of St. Louis to secure a WR.

Patterson is just too much of a risk to trade to get. If we are going to trade up I think it would be to secure Richardson or Rhodes. Both would be a great help for our defense. I still think we should stay put though, just my opinion.

The thing for me is that what what actually done to the room. Like poop flung around the room and things like that.

But it looks like rpmwr and myself have conflicting reports, so who knows.

There is this from Hopkins...

DeAndre Hopkins wrote:
“Honestly, at first when I heard about it, I asked [Engelhard] if I can call [Mark Harrison] and talk to him and ask him what happened after I left. And he told me not to worry about it. If you didn’t do anything then you have nothing to prove. You know, it’s just mind-boggling that someone would do that.”

Hopkins roomed with Harrison for the whole Combine and feels the Rutgers receiver had nothing to do with what happened.

“I say check the cameras, that’s the best way that you’re going to get the answer. Check the cameras and check the timing of everything.”


http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/deandre-hopkins-denies-trashing-hotel-room-nfl-scouting-combine-041813

Hopkins saying he didn't do it, and doesn't believe Harrison did either.

Some team at the top of the 2nd is trying to force a Hopkins drop right to them.

No sources were mentioned, but I heard on KFAN this morning that a couple teams knew of it right away (must be the ones who photographed it), and the agents were desperately trying to keep it quiet.

However, if 2 teams knew, I'd be willing to bet every other team found out pretty quick. I'm sure the agents were just trying to keep this away from the public, nothing good comes from that.

Pretty ridiculous story.

Would love to land Rhodes or Richardson in a trade up. Would be so, so disappointed in a trade up for Te'o.

The more I think about it, the more I like Austin as well. That'd be a pretty sly move by the Vikings.. Move a disgruntled Percy, then bring in Jennings and Austin for about the same price.
